Witnesses, Statements and Circumstances Surrounding Your DUI Arrest

Maryland DUI AttorneyIf you have been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI), your Maryland DUI attorney will investigate whether anyone witnessed you allegedly committing a DUI. If the state is unable to provide proof that you were operating the vehicle, it can't convict you of the infraction. In the event that one or more people witnessed you driving under the influence, your Maryland DUI lawyer will have to conduct interviews with them quickly.

Did You Make Any Statements or Admissions?
You will be asked by your Maryland DUI attorney if you made any statements or admitted anything to the law enforcement officers. It is imperative for the Maryland DUI lawyer to be aware if you can recall what you might have said or admitted at the time of the arrest. This is significant when discussing how much alcohol you might have had to drink, the amount of time it took for you to consume the alcohol, and if you were or weren't driving.

Important Facts for Your Defense
There are other circumstances that your Maryland DUI attorney will want to touch upon in your first consultation such as your condition when the arrest was made. This will include your sleep patterns prior to the arrest, what you weigh, if you suffer from a condition or disability that might have influenced your balance when taking the field sobriety tests, and if you had suffered any injuries around the time the arrest was made.

Your lawyer will also need to know about any medications—prescription or not—you were using and if you have other issues like as speech impediments, a health issue such as being epileptic, diabetic, if you have heart problems that could have negatively influenced your results in the breathalyzer and blood test or how you performed in the field sobriety tests.
