HOW A MARYLAND DUI LAWYER CAN HELP PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS
If you have been arrested or charged for drugged driving, you need to secure legal representation from a skilled and experienced Maryland DUI lawyer as soon as possible.
I, Mark A. Epstein, Attorney at Law, have often found during my more than 30 years of experience that the state’s DUI laws are very general when it comes to drugs, which often leads to many unwarranted arrests. Blood or urine samples must be taken to detect the presence of drugs in an individual’s system. In order to administer these tests and convict you with drugged driving, a law enforcement official must have a valid probable cause to pull you over in the first place. They cannot pull someone over at random or based on a hunch. If there was no probable cause to do so, your case may be dismissed on the grounds that the police stop was unlawful.
