Understand the process when charged with OUI on the Cape

Attorney Michael DelSignore has been helping people whether local to Massachusetts or here on vacation through the process of dealing with an OUI arrest. What is the right decision is different for everyone: But for many people the best choice is to contest the case at a trial.

However, in some cases getting back on the road quickly will be the highest priority. When you call Attorney DelSignore to discuss your case, he will give you the different ways the case can be resolved and how it will impact your driving record, criminal record and what the best option for you is. With years of experience defending OUI cases on Cape Cod and throughout Massachusetts, he will be able to give you a perspective based on past experience and years of experience in the courts and with the judges you will appear before.

Being arrested for an OUI is a complicated situation that becomes heightened when you are an out of state resident. Attorney Michael DelSignore is not only an experienced Massachusetts DUI Lawyer but also frequently deals with out of state residents trying to get their life back, and therefore has a good understanding of the different laws and penalties across state lines.

Defense Attorney DelSignore has spent his entire career traveling to courts and winning cases all over Massachusetts and wants to help you win yours today.


DUI cases from Cape Cod can be heard by any of the following courts: Falmouth, Barnstable or Orleans District Court.

Being arrested for an OUI in Massachusetts when you are an out of state resident is a complicated situation. Since Massachusetts is not part of the National Driver’s License Compact (an agreement between states to share license information), it is up to the state of Massachusetts to contact your home state about your charges. Massachusetts does report out of state suspensions through the NDR which could result in your home state suspending your license.

If your license is suspended in Massachusetts, your home state will likely impose a suspension for the same amount of time, if not longer. A license suspension in Massachusetts means you no longer have the privilege to drive within the state during the suspension period.

Attorney Michael DelSignore specifically deals with a lot of residents from Rhode Island and Connecticut who travel to Massachusetts for work or leisure activities. The penalties for an OUI in Rhode Island are generally less strict, but if your arrest occurred in Massachusetts, Rhode Island will typically follow penalty guidelines similar to the state where your arrest took place.

1st offense OUI dismissed out of the Orleans District Court

In this case, our client was charged with a first offense OUI out of the Orleans District Court. One of the first things we do on a new case is to request that the court preserve any video evidence in the case. This process made the difference in the case as the motion was allowed but the police department failed to preserve the video. As a result, we were able to obtain a dismissal of the OUI charge in exchange for a plea on the negligent operation offense. This is an issue that Attorney DelSignore frequently sees come up in cases. In this case, it resulted in a dismissal of the charge.

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 Ashwani
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
Michael DelSignore did an amazing job with my case! He was always available to answer any questions I had and helped walked me through the entire process. I could not have done it without them! I highly recommend choosing this law firm to deal with your legal needs, you will not be dissatisfied. Ashley
I cannot express the gratitude towards Michael for his 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 over and over again. Claire
