Hingham OUI Lawyer

What you need to know specifically about OUI cases in Hingham District Court

As an experienced Defense Attorney, Michael DelSignore has built a reputation for aggressively representing clients facing a DUI charge in Hingham. Attorney DelSignore handles drunk driving cases at all offense levels, including first and second offenses and individuals with multiple offenses on their record.

What type of evidence can you expect on your OUI offense?

The evidence in an OUI case consists of the testimony of the officer, other civilian witnesses and any video evidence. You can admit other evidence but this is the most common types of evidence.

The Hingham police department will have cruiser and booking video of your arrest. Video from the police car is not very common; however, the Hingham police are one of a handful of departments that have police cruiser video.

In a recent second offense trial, that I had in Hingham District Court, the prosecutor offered the cruiser video into evidence. The officer testified that the client missed heel to toe on the nine step walk and turn; when you watched the video, it appeared as though his feet were close together. Attorney DelSignore was able to minimize the officer's testimony on that aspect of the case and suggest that the officer was being extremely critical in his evaluation of our client's performance on the exercise.

What if it is not your first OUI offense?

I see many clients who have been charged with a second offense OUI. These clients, along with first offenders, often ask about the potential license loss and ability to obtain a hardship license. A second offense drunk driving may offer the possibility that a motorist is eligible for what is known as a Cahill disposition, which you can read about by clicking here. Obtaining a hardship license is easier when you are facing your first offense, but with a second offense it requires the court to treat your second offense as a first offense. If your two offense are separated by ten years, you can receive a much shorter license loss provided you have the ignition interlock device installed in your car.

By thoroughly reviewing the facts and circumstances of your case, Attorney DelSignore will fight for your rights and may even be able to exclude evidence by challenging evidence, including the results of breathalyzer examinations and field sobriety tests, or evidence seized during a search of your vehicle.

As a dedicated DUI lawyer in Hingham, Attorney DelSignore is a member of the National DUI College and attends annual meeting regarding current changes to DUI laws in Massachusetts and throughout the country.

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! Either him or his partner Julie 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 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
