Prosecutors have become more and more aggressive in their handling of drunk driving and traffic cases across the greater Baltimore area, as well as throughout the country. The impacts of driving while intoxicated (DUI) and traffic infractions have been widely seen in accidents and injuries, and the criminal justice system is not taking them lightly.
If you are facing a DUI charge or have received a traffic ticket, the best way to protect your rights and driving privileges is to enlist an aggressive and experienced criminal defense attorney. From our office in Frederick, Maryland, we at Luqman Law are committed to standing up for individuals who have been issued a traffic citation, charged with DUI or charged with another type of crime. We work tirelessly to create a defense strategy and see that the case is properly presented.
Experienced DUI Defense Representation
Drunk driving is a serious crime that not only has immediate legal repercussions but also will impact the rest of your life. If convicted you are facing the suspension of your driver's license, jail time, fines, required attendance at alcohol counseling, the mandatory installation of an ignition interlock system in your vehicle upon the return of your license, and more. The more DUI charges you receive within a certain period of time, the more severe the consequences become.
In addition to handling first-offense DUI and subsequent DUI arrests, we also handle very serious DUI cases that involve injuries to another party. DUI manslaughter and DUI serious bodily injury cases are charged as felonies. A conviction for one of these types of charges would have serious consequences, including jail time, monetary fines, restitution, driver's license suspension and more. This felony would also go on your criminal record and be visible to the public.
