Driving under the influence & driving while impaired

If you have been arrested on a charge of driving under the influence (DUI), driving under the influence per se, or driving while impaired (DWI), you need to be proactive and take immediate and swift action as soon as possible. Penalties include fines, incarceration, and the loss of driving privileges, consequences which may have significant and profound implications on your life.

In Maryland, recent changes to DUI laws have made these penalties even more severe. The possible outcomes and/or penalties for a DWI/DUI conviction can vary significantly based upon the facts of one's case and the level of one's blood alcohol concentration (BAC). Other factors to consider are the speed at which the vehicle was traveling and whether there was a personal injury and/or property damage. Whether you have prior offenses and, if so, how recently will also be important.

Fortunately, an attorney like Mr. Healy, who has over 35 years of experience defending clients accused of DUIs/DWIs, can provide a strong defense that protects your rights every step of the way, as well as at the Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) hearing, should you have timely requested a hearing. Additionally, Mr. Healy may be able to provide you with invaluable assistance at the time of sentencing even if you are found guilty and/or plead guilty to the offense of driving while under the influence or driving while impaired.
