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.
