Drunk Driving Attorney Massachusetts

As the fourth of July approaches, most of us will be attending celebrations throughout the Commonwealth.  It is important to remember that if you consume alcohol and operate a motor vehicle, you may face the potential of being arrested for drunk driving.

Drunk driving, of course, is a misnomer for the OUI statute which punishes anyone who operates a motor vehicle on a public way after consuming enough intoxicating liquor to reduce his or her ability to operate the vehicle safely.   This means that if your alertness, judgment and ability to respond promptly have been lessened by the consumption of alcohol, you would fit within the parameters of the statute.  The amount of alcohol necessary obviously varies from person to person.

As a result if you or someone you know is charged with drunk driving over the fourth of July or anytime throughout the year, contact a drunk driving attorney who will fight for you.  How much are your livelihood and your license worth to you.

Mass OUI Lawyer–Summer Events

As we approach the summer season, many of us will be attending cookouts and other outings.  If you consume alcohol and operate a motor vehicle, you run the risk of being arrested and charged with OUI.  This is based on the fact that the OUI statute punishes those who operate a motor vehicle on a public way while under the influence of alcohol. The amount of alcohol necessary varies from person to person.

The OUI statute, therefore, doesn’t just punish those who operate a vehicle while drunk or significantly impaired.  To be arrested and charged is quite different, however, from being found guilty after trial.  To reach that end, the Commonwealth must prove the allegations of impairment beyond a reasonable doubt and to a moral certainty.

As a result, if you or someone you know is charged with OUI, contact a Mass OUI Lawyer who will fight for you and you rights.  Go with an attorney who has tried cases as both a prosecutor and defense attorney.
