Experienced DUI/DWI Defense

At the Law Offices of Michael G. Banks in Rockville, Maryland, our first goal is find out if there is a basis to help you avoid a DUI/DWI conviction. We represent first-time offenders as well as repeat offenders. Defenses in a drunk driving case may include the following:

  • An illegal stop. If the police did not have a legal reason for pulling you over, all evidence collected after the stop, including Breathalyzer test results, can be dismissed.
  • Lack of probable cause for the officer to arrest you. This is a separate issue from the stop itself.
  • Whether sobriety tests were properly administered. Breathalyzers are prone to error if they are not properly calibrated, maintained or used. A technical error in the Breathalyzer test can lead to dismissal of the test results.

If the state has strong evidence in your case, our goal is to try to minimize the charges. In addition to handling your criminal DUI case, we will represent you in your civil case with the Maryland Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to protect your driving privileges and obtain an occupational driver's license.
