If you have been charged with DUI/DWI/OUI in Massachusetts, you should hire an attorney to explain your rights and evaluate your case. Ultimately, in most cases, you will need to hire a skilled and experienced criminal defense lawyer to represent you in court.
Penalties for DUI/DWI/OUI can be very serious and this can include time in jail, fines, driver’s license suspension, and more, including increased insurance premiums. Subsequent offenses of DUI/DWI/OUI have additional penalties and almost always result in mandatory jail time.
As a result of Melanie’s Law, the police and prosecutors take drunk driving situations very seriously. There are consequences for a person’s refusal to take a Breathalyzer test and/or refusal to perform standard field sobriety tests given by the police.
You will need to hire an aggressive criminal defense attorney to represent you at every stage of the criminal process who will not only be prepared to defend you at trial, but also, will zealously file motions to suppress evidence vital to the prosecutor’s case.
