It is unfortunate how often drunk driving related fatal accidents occur. It is never smart to get behind the wheel of a car after you have been drinking. Assuming the police are correct in their belief that alcohol was involved, the driver who drove under the influence of alcohol made an irresponsible decision doing so by putting their life and the lives of others in grave danger.
If you have been arrested for a DUI/DWI it is important that you consult an experienced Maryland DUI attorney immediately because DUI is a criminal offense and carries potentially severe penalties. An experienced attorney can guide you through the court process and find any possible defenses that can either mitigate the penalties in the case, or in some instances, lead to an acquittal or dismissal.
