Brookline OUI Lawyer

Dedham, MA 02026
If you are arrested for OUI by the Brookline police, your case will be heard in the Brookline District Court. The Brookline police department does record the video of the booking process. This video will help you in defending your case for a few reasons:
- Video is helpful if you took a breath test because often the officer do not follow the proper procedures in administering a breath test;
- Many people do not appear under the influence when it is shown on video.
In one of my cases from the Brookline District Court, video was crucial as my client did not appear under the influence of alcohol. Given there was an accident in the case, the video tape evidence likely helped the jury reach its conclusion in returning a not guilty verdict.
After your first court date, you will receive another court date for a pretrial conference. Some of the things that we do to prepare your case after the initial court date include:
- visiting the scene of the arrest
- obtaining discovery from the Commonwealth;
- discussing your defenses and version of events
- reviewing the license implication and when you can get your license back after your arrest.

In this case, our client was stopped by Brookline Police after driving on the wrong side of the road. In his police report, the officer stated that the defendant failed the field tests and had slurred speech. At trial, Attorney DelSignore was able to use the defendants booking video to show that the client actually did well on the field tests and that he did not have any visual signs of being too intoxicated to drive. The client was found not guilty after trial!
