Protecting your right to drive in Maryland

If you or a family member has been charged with or arrested for driving under the influence (DUI), a Bel Air DUI lawyer from Schlaich & Thompson, Chartered is ready to represent you. We counsel you on your legal options, prepare your defense and navigate you through the DUI process.

In Maryland, you can be prosecuted for driving while impaired with a blood alcohol concentration of .07 or higher, and the more serious offense of driving under the influence at .08 or above.

What happens to your driver’s license with a DUI?

If you are charged with a DUI, you have 10 days to request your Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration hearing. You will be issued a temporary license while you wait for your court date.
