++Both Maryland lawyers, and out of state lawyers, have selected Jack I. Hyatt to represent them in their **PERSONAL** DUI cases.++

The police are required to follow very strict procedures. The police officer's failure to do so can lead to the dismissal of your DUI case. What is referred to as a "Technicality" or "Loophole", is actually a way of using the constitution to have your case dismissed. I understand how to dismantle the toughest cases, even with the highest breath test results. I also understand exactly how physical illnesses, mental illnesses or disabilities can be confused with DUI and can make an effective presentation to the court in an effort to get the case dismissed. I have seen this happen many times.

The education, training and experiences of your lawyer can make the difference in the final result. A question frequently asked is whether or not to submit to a breathalyzer test. Upon receipt of your call we will explain these issues to you. If you have gone to court, have been found or plead guilty, and question what happened, we can explain your rights to appeal and other post judgment rights you have.

When defending your DUI or driving on Suspended or Revoked License case "RESULTS ARE EVERYTHING" You need the lawyer who can provide an excellent opportunity to get your case dismissed and provide an excellent result. Our first step is to help you learn what DUI defenses may be available upon receipt of your call. The call is complimentary. 410-486-1800 24/7.
