Highly Skilled Repeat DUI Defense
The consequences of drunk driving are bad enough the first time a police officer pulls you over. However, if you are facing a second or subsequent DUI charge, having an experienced defense is critical. Being charged with a repeat DUI offense means there is likely less room for leniency in the eyes of the law.
At The Law Offices of Richard B. Rosenblatt, PC, we bring more than 70 years of combined legal experience to your case. After examining the details of your arrest and criminal processing, we will build an aggressive defense to protect your rights, your freedom and your future.

Additional DUI Charges Could Mean Ignition Interlock Installation
Multiple DUI convictions not only lead to increased fines, longer license suspension and the possibility of longer jail time. Those convicted of a second DUI offense face the added penalty of an ignition interlock device (IID). Maryland law mandates the installation of an IID for anyone convicted of a second or subsequent DUI offense.
You must install this device in all vehicles you own (at your own expense), and it requires you to blow into it before you drive. If the device detects any alcohol in your breath, your engine will not start.
When you work with us, we commit to preserving your driving privileges and your freedom. Our legal team will examine all the evidence in your case to determine what options you have.
What About Second Or Third DWI Charges?
Unlike most states, Maryland makes a distinction between DUI (driving under the influence) and DWI (driving while impaired). Those convicted a second or third time for DWI, defined as having a blood alcohol concentration of .07 percent, face increased penalties such as up to 120 days’ license suspension for second offense. There may be up to 12 months’ license suspension for a third offense. Both a second and third DWI conviction include the risk of up to a year’s jail time as well, as opposed to the 60 days’ jail time for a first offense.
Whatever the nature of your charges, now is the time for action. As your advocate, we will build an aggressive criminal defense based upon the unique aspects of your case. Our top priority is to protect your constitutional rights and seek the best possible outcome to your case.
