Your arraignment will be your first official hearing. This is where you will be formally informed of the charges against you.
A pre-trial conference (or hearing) will be scheduled for some time after your arraignment. At this hearing, you will be given more information and there will be an opportunity for you to resolve the case.
Motion hearings are frequently utilized for OUI charges. These hearings are used by your attorney to limit the amount of evidence that can come into play and be used against you.

Officer claimed my client was driving 30 miles above the speed limit, failed 3 field sobriety tests, and more. At trial, this officer acknowledged deviations in his training regarding field sobriety tests. Other evidence was questioned by Attorney DelSignore, and the client was ultimately found not guilty by jury.

After this, your trial will take place. Your trial will be heard by a judge or a jury of your peers. Based on the facts of your case, and experienced attorney can tell you what choice is best.

It is important for you to remember that although it is illegal to drive intoxicated, it is not illegal to drive after consuming alcohol. If you took a breath test and your result is over the limit (.08), there are many Breathalyzer defenses that may be utilized to help you. Even if you failed the breath test, there is still a possibility that we can win your case. The Breathalyzer is not a perfect science.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Michael was very professional and explained the process clearly and told us to be patient. After one year the charges got dismissed in the trial. Excellent knowledge of the court systems in the area of Boston. Would highly recommend him
★★★★★
A careless decision on my part left me facing charges which would have severely hampered my ability to stay employed and support myself. But attorney DelSignore's skillful analysis and challenging of the evidence against me resulted in a conviction on a lesser charge. Now I'll be able to go on with my life, having learned a lesson I'll never forget. Thank you, Michael. Scott
★★★★★
Mike stuck with my case for 3.5 years and always kept me informed regarding the status. Ultimately, because of his due diligence, we ended up with an OUI not guilty verdict. This case could have gone many ways but his thorough review of the case and exceptional preparedness for trial ultimately drove a positive outcome. Thank you Mike! David

I cannot express the gratitude towards both Michael and Julie for their amazing work and help. It was a very stressful event and they certainly put me at as much ease as possible. From start to finish it took 14 months and all the way through they were both very engaged with me. Today was worth the wait, Michael was great in court and I was rightfully found not guilty. I would recommend Michael and Julie over and over again. Claire
