Protecting Your Driving Privileges After A DUI

One of the most significant penalties of a drunk driving arrest is the potential impact it can have on your driving privileges. A suspended license can make it difficult to get to work, drive your children to after-school activities and attend school. In addition to helping you fight any DUI charges you are facing, we can help you preserve your right to drive.


Experienced defense attorney Mike Rothman knows that losing your license could be a direct threat to your education and your career. We believe that a strong DUI defense includes working to avoid a full loss of driving privileges, and at the Law Office of Michael S. Rothman, both Maryland and Washington, D.C., drivers can learn how they may be able to retain their right to drive.

Limited Driving Privileges Could Be An Option For You

Many drivers have the option to seek limited driving privileges after a DUI. However, it is important to take quick action. We can help you file the necessary paperwork and request an administrative hearing during which you can seek a restricted license. This allows you to drive to necessary places, such as your place of employment.

  • Maryland Maryland drivers must request an administrative hearing with the Motor Vehicle Administration within 10 days. Restricted licenses are available to drivers who had a BAC less than 1.5 percent at the time of the traffic stop.

  • Washington, D.C. Residents of the District of Columbia must request a hearing with the DMV within five days, but nonresidents have up to 10 days.

We understand the nuances of the law, and our attorney knows what is necessary to both fight the charges against you and protect your ability to get where you need to go.
