If you, or a loved one, have been arrested for DWI or DUI in the Maryland, there are very important things that that person needs to know. Number one, the consequences might be very severe. The person might be looking at a loss of license, number one. Number two, he could be looking at substantial jail time, and number three, more importantly, he could be looking at a criminal history on his record, which might have future consequences down the road for future employment or even for his present employment. That’s why it is very, very important to contact a competent DUI lawyer to evaluate the case and to obviously try to help the person, either to get into a Maryland first offender program or to minimize the consequences of the pending DUI case.
