Getting charged with OUI or DUI in Massachusetts can have stiff penalties. For a first time offender in Massachusetts, these penalties can range from jail time, fines, license suspension, and mandated substance abuse treatment programs. If you have a minor in the car, or if you are found carrying drugs or firearms at the time of the arrest, the potential penalties are even worse.
For these reasons, it is critical that you obtain legal representation from an experienced criminal defense trial attorney from the beginning. A knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer will examine the evidence immediately to determine what steps need to be taken to protect your rights. Oftentimes they are able to throw out evidence that could potentially lead to a conviction.
