Helping You Navigate When You Need It Most


The State of Maryland’s drinking and driving laws are severe. The penalties associated with them can be life-altering. Furthermore, there are multiple factors that influence the consequences you may face. Allowing a veteran Maryland DUI law firm like Albers & Associates to defend your case, however, can be the difference between facing jail time or being required to pay a minimal fine.

Individuals can be convicted of driving under the influence (DUI) if they both:

A) have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or higher and

B) are caught driving or attempting to drive a motor vehicle. For the majority of adults that are of legal drinking age, a BAC of .08% can be reached relatively quickly once alcohol consumption begins.

While a DUI conviction relies heavily on a driver having a BAC that is higher than the legal limit, a driving while impaired (DWI) conviction is typically given to a driver who has a BAC that is slightly lower than .08% but has also exhibited signs of impairment while operating a motor vehicle or during a field sobriety test.


Our team is here to assist with a variety of DUI or DWI-related charges, including:

DUI/DWI Penalties

Common penalties for convictions related to driving under the influence or while impaired are:

  • Jail time
  • Large fines
  • Alcohol abuse assessment program attendance
  • Ignition interlock program enrollment

Penalties for a DWI are typically less serious than those that follow a DUI conviction. Maryland law enforcement leaders, however, often reevaluate these penalties in a greater attempt to deter residents from getting behind the wheel after consuming alcohol. This is enforced more strictly if you hold a CDL too.

When charged with either a DUI or DWI, you may face both criminal penalties and license sanctions. 

You can also be charged with a DUI/DWI for drug-related incidents. It doesn’t matter whether you’ve been drinking and driving, what matters is whether or not you were impaired.

The penalties against your Maryland driver’s license may include the following:

  • What Is the Difference in Penalties Between DUI and DWI?

    Driving under the influence of alcohol is the more serious crime. It requires that the alcohol you consumed has substantially impaired your normal coordination.

    Driving while impaired by alcohol is the less serious crime. It requires that the alcohol you consumed has impaired normal coordination to some extent.
