Should I hire a lawyer if I was found guilty of drinking and driving at a Howard County sobriety checkpoint?

The smartest thing you can do if you were found guilty of drinking and driving at a Howard County sobriety checkpoint is to hire a lawyer. Not hiring a lawyer could lead to receiving harsh charges and penalties you might not incur otherwise. Having an attorney on your side is also beneficial in a few other ways.

Explain the Process

If you’ve never received Maryland drunk driving charges before, you might not know what you’re up against. Because of this, you could make decisions that will hurt you. An experienced lawyer, on the other hand, has been through this with clients a number of times and can help you make the right choices.

Find Errors

Police officers might make a few mistakes at these Howard County DUI checkpoints. Some may be too eager to prove you are intoxicated and can give the tests in an inaccurate manner. A lawyer may be able to have the charges dropped or get you a reduced charge if he can prove this.
