Boston DUI/OUI Lawyer
A drunk driving conviction can have a long-term, devastating effect on your life. Consequences under Massachusetts law may include jail time, loss of employment, fines, loss of driving privileges and increased insurance rates; and Melanie's Law not only increased OUI penalties, but also created new categories of offenses. A third or later OUI offense will be charged as a felony with mandatory jail time.
If you have been arrested for OUI, contact an attorney at the first opportunity.
What can a lawyer do about an OUI/DUI charge?
There are effective defenses to charges of driving while intoxicated (DWI)/operating under the influence (OUI)/driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol. Was the traffic stop legal? Was evidence acquired through an illegal search and seizure? Did police follow approved procedures related to the blood alcohol content (BAC) test? If a suspect is convicted or pleads guilty to drunk driving, an experienced criminal defense attorney may be able to work out a favorable sentencing option.
Each situation is unique. At Louison, Costello, Condon & Pfaff, LLP in Boston, our OUI lawyer will consider all circumstances surrounding your traffic stop and DUI/OUI charges before recommending a defense strategy. It is our goal to see that your driver's license is reinstated or you get a Cinderella license as soon as possible after suspension or revocation, and that your case results in the best possible outcome, possibly under a 24D program alternative disposition for a second offense.
