If you have been arrested and charged with a DUI (driving under the influence) or DWI (driving while intoxicated), you should know that there are options to pleading guilty. If your arrest was not handled according to protocol, or the arresting officers were in violation of your rights during the process, you may be able to avoid the serious consequences of a conviction. When you contact Cohen & Dwin, our experienced Baltimore DUI attorneys will fill you in on all of your options and advise you on how to move forward.
Your DUI/DWI Arrest
If you are charged with a DWI/DUI, your testing at the time of arrest showed a Blood Alcohol Concentration of .08 or above. Drunk driving arrests can happen in the blink of an eye, and you may still be confused about why the officer pulled you over, what the results of your breathalyzer test mean, or how roadside testing worked against you. The Maryland DWI lawyers at Cohen & Dwin can give you the tools you need to protect your freedom to drive and prevent one bad night from affecting your future and your freedom.
The Crucial Role of a DUI Defense Attorney
Baltimore DUI attorneys Barry Cohen (retired) and Harold Dwin can use their years of drunk driving defense experience to help you through the maze. We have witnessed far too many defendants suffer major, life-changing consequences when they could have achieved a much better outcome with legal help. We will steer your defense and show you the right ways to handle the charges against you. Even if you plan to plead guilty, there are things we can do to help you get a better result.
Here are a few of the factors we will investigate in regard to your defense:
