Annapolis Boating Under the Influence Lawyer BUI Defense In Maryland

Most people assume that a boating under the influence (BUI) charge is basically the same as a driving under the influence (DUI) charge, but this is not the case. Although a BUI conviction can bring fines, jail time and other penalties that are similar to the penalties for a DUI conviction, BUI involves an entirely different set of laws, regulations and procedures. If you are facing BUI charges, it is important to work with a team of Annapolis boating under the influence attorneys with experience handling this type of case.

At Joel L. Katz, L.L.C., we have more than 40 years of legal experience. In that time, we have handled many BUI cases. We know how to examine the evidence for errors and rights violations committed by the arresting officers. Many of our attorneys own boats, and we are personally familiar with the laws surrounding boating and drinking. This puts us in an ideal position to defend you against these charges. Further, we have the courtroom experience needed for a strategic, aggressive approach. If you are charged with BUI, we will defend your rights in the courtroom and help you get the best results possible.

BUI Laws

BUI, which is often referred to as boating while intoxicated (BWI), is very different under Maryland law from DUI. Your automobile driver’s license is not at stake in a BUI case, for example, and there are very different limitations on what an arresting officer can use for probable cause and what the officer can do in terms of stops, searches and seizures.

Too much is at stake if you are facing BUI charges. Make sure you work with the experienced BUI lawyers of Joel L. Katz, L.L.C., to mount a strong, aggressive defense on your behalf.
