Being accused of leaving the scene is a serious offense, but when this charge is coupled with a DUI, you can find yourself entangled in a rather complicated legal situation. When an accident occurs, all of the drivers involved are legally required to stop. Failing to do so constitutes as a hit-and-run, a serious crime in the eyes of the law.

If you are currently facing DUI and hit-and-run charges for leaving the scene, you need to contact an aggressive and experienced DUI lawyer as soon as possible. The longer you wait to retain legal representation, the more at risk you are of being convicted.

In the state of Maryland, a person who is charged with fleeing the scene of a DUI accident could face penalties such as: 

  • Up to a year in jail
  • Up to $3,000 in fines
  • License suspension
  • Ignition interlock device

Don’t let this happen to you. I, Mark A. Epstein, Attorney at Law, may be able to fight for your rights and challenge the charges made against you with personalized defense strategies for your case.


During my more than 30 years of practice as a Baltimore DUI lawyer, I have helped many people fight DUI charges with defense strategies such as questioning the reliability of sobriety test results and challenging witness and law enforcement testimonies. I will use all of the resources at my exposal to exhaustively investigate the details of your case. In the past, I have found that law enforcement officials did not adhere to proper procedures when attempting to stop the vehicle of a client. When you have me fighting on your side, you can be sure that I will do everything in my power to help you reach a favorable case outcome, whether that is a reduction of charges or a case dismissal. I’ve done it before and I can do it again—I have the track record to prove it.
