DUI & DWI Helping You Protect What Matters Most

Rockville DUI/DWI Attorney

Protecting Your Rights, Freedom & Driving Privileges

Maryland has strict laws against driving while under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs, even for first-time offenders. A DUI conviction could result in incarceration, probation, the loss of your license, and significant fines. It can also lead to other serious, collateral consequences that may affect your quality of life.

If you have a previous conviction for a DUI offense, the penalties, especially potential incarceration, could be more severe. If you are arrested and charged with a DUI-related offense, you need a lawyer you can trust, who will aggressively defend your rights in court. At McGann Hughes Gratz, our Rockville DUI attorneys understand that good people make mistakes and deserve to be heard.

Will I Go to Jail for First DUI in Maryland?

A first-time DUI in Maryland carries a sentence of one year in prison and a $1,000 fine. If a minor was in the car at the time, a first-time DUI could result in a double penalty of two years in jail and a $2000 fine.
