Defending Clients Against All OUI Offenses
Sometimes referred to as DUI or DWI, drunk driving is officially “operating under the influence,” or OUI, in Massachusetts. This includes operating under the influence of marijuana. Regardless of what you may think, you can fight these charges. Whether someone is “driving while under the influence” is generally a matter of opinion and these opinions can be challenged in court. Law enforcement officers form an opinion of someone’s sobriety through observation of the driver and other factors, including driving patterns. To evaluate someone’s sobriety, law enforcement will also often ask a driver to perform field sobriety exercises. Studies have shown that some of these tests are only 68% accurate. The officer who is directing the driver to perform the exercises must follow the instructions as presented in their training manual.
We have dedicated our practice to protecting our clients’ rights. There are a number of things we can do to defend your case:
- Thoroughly analyze the facts of your case and develop an effective trial strategy.
- Review and challenge the breath test results.
- Determine if the police officer who pulled you over had probable cause to stop your vehicle and filing a motion to suppress evidence when appropriate.
- Aggressively negotiate with the prosecution to raise your chances of achieving the best possible result.
