DUI Case Results

See our recent not guilty verdicts throughout Massachusetts

Below is a list of my recent drunk driving cases where the motorist was found either not guilty or the case was dismissed.

Every drunk driving case is unique so I cannot guarantee any particular result on an OUI charge. In fact, no lawyer can ever guarantee the outcome of a particular case. However, I am able to talk to you about the defenses regarding your case and possible case outcomes. The List of Successful Case Results includes Cases throughout Massachusetts. Attorney DelSignore is well known throughout the State for vigorously defending OUI cases.

Brockton District Court, 3rd Offense OUI not guilty after arrest by the Bridgewater police department In this case, our client was charged with a 3rd offense OUI, which carries a minimum mandatory six month jail sentence. The Commonwealth alleged that the defendant was under the influence of both alcohol and marijuana. This case involves complex evidentiary issues of law. At trial, Attorney DelSignore was able to preclude the officer from testifying to his opinion that the defendant was impaired by marijuana based on the officer's lack of training and the case of Commonwealth v. Gerhardt, where Attorney DelSignore and Gaudreau wrote a brief assisting the defendant in that case given the Statewide importance of the issue in the Gerhardt case for all defendants charged with any crime of driving under the influence of drugs, especially marijuana. Attorney DelSignore crossed examined all three officers, showing that the client did not exhibit signs of impairment. After trial, the defendant was found not guilty of OUI 3rd offense.

At trial, Attorney DelSignore used a picture of the area and showed that the officer did the field tests in a very difficult area for anyone to perform well. During the cross examination it was also pointed out things that the client did correctly. When officers write their reports and testify at trial, they omit signs that do not show impairment. During this trial and every other trial, Attorney DelSignore highlights those positive points. In this case, an edited video was played showing that the defendant did not look impaired by alcohol. After trial, the defendant was found not guilty of both OUI 2nd offense and negligent operation.

The officer further testified that the defendant failed the field sobriety tests. At trial, Attorney DelSignore objected when the officer tried to enter into evidence that the defendant refused to answer a questions about alcohol consumption. A defendant is under no obligation to answer questions and admission of this testimony would violate the privilege against self-incrimination as an attempt to shift the burden to a defendant. Additionally, Attorney DelSignore cross-examined the officer on his report which appeared to suggest that the defendant balanced for 30 seconds on the one leg stand. The officer conceded some favorable points about the defendant being polite, cooperative, alert during the booking process. All of these statements on cross-examination showed reasonable doubt. The client was found not guilty of the OUI charge. The client avoided any license loss or criminal conviction.

OUI arrest by the Groton Police department not guilty after trial in the Ayer District Court In this case, my client was charged with OUI by the Groton police department after being stopped for a marked lane violation.

OUI 2nd dismissed out of the Palmer District Court after judge allows motion to suppress In this case, our client was charged with an OUI second offense by the Palmer police department. The case was set down for a motion hearing challenging whether the officer had a legal basis to pull the client over under the 4th amendment and Article 12 of our State Constitution.

Attorney DelSignore discredit the officers testimony about the driving violation by showing that the officer did not react as would be expected if the infraction occurred. After taking the motion under advisement, the judge allowed the motion resulting in the dismissal of the case.

★★★★★
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

★★★★★
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
