Fighting Your Drunk Driving Charges

A DWI charge occurs when a person has a blood alcohol content (BAC) of up to .07 percent, while DUI is for a BAC of .08 percent or higher. The charge is contingent upon the accuracy of this BAC measurement. That is why our Glen Burnie DUI attorneys carefully examine the results and conditions of the field sobriety, Breathalyzer, and blood tests. If there is any reason to doubt their proper administration, we can fight to have the results suppressed leading to a reduction or dismissal of charges.
