Experienced Drunk Driving Defense Lawyer

As a Baltimore second-offense DUI lawyer, I have a detailed understanding of the state's penalties for a drunk driving conviction. The penalties increase with each subsequent charge. If you are convicted of your second offense for DUI, your punishments can include:

  • Up to two years in jail
  • Up to $2,000 in fines
  • Up to 120 days of driver's license suspension
  • 12 points on your driving record

It is my job to get your charge reduced or dismissed altogether. I will fight on your behalf with the ultimate goal of limiting your exposure to consequences. Contact my office immediately to learn how I can help you.

Challenging Chemical Testing

Most often, a breath test or a blood test is used to determine blood alcohol content and your level of impairment. If these tests are not properly administered by a qualified person, I can challenge these results.

Some questions I will ask include:

  • Was the machine properly calibrated?
  • Was the officer properly trained on the machine's operation?
  • Was the equipment properly stored between uses?
  • Was the blood sample properly stored at the correct temperature?

Do not hesitate to contact my office. I will carefully examine your charge and immediately begin developing a unique and effective defense for your DUI or DWI charge.
