Lakeville OUI Lawyer

Answering the Important Questions

For a lot of people, being arrested for an OUI is the first time they ever step foot the inside of a court room. Dealing with legal proceedings comes at a great cost both financially and emotionally, but often the mental strain of these types of cases on defendants is not discussed.

DelSignore Law is a law firm that prides itself on the strong communication between clients and attorneys. They are available anytime to answer questions you may have, including ones you may not know to ask.

Most commonly, people ask their lawyers about what will happen in court, what the consequences could be, and how the lawyer will defend their case.

COURT PROCEEDINGS

Usually OUI cases follow this format:

Arraignment > Pretrial Hearing > Motion hearing > Trial

When you chose to speak with an attorney from DelSignore Law, they will explain how each court hearing (arraignment, pretrial hearing etc.) will go, what to wear and how to behave in court.

However, other options for you case will be laid out to you, including a plea deal and a Continuance Without Finding (CWOF).

OUI CONSEQUENCES

The penalties for an OUI vary in degree of severity based on the number of prior convictions you have on your record and how well your attorney defends your case. Typically, on your first, and even second offenses, jail time is not a real possibility. On your first offense bail may even not be required. However, more than two offenses is where judges tend to truly crack down on you because then you are a repeat offender.

DEFENSES TO AN OUI CASE

Attorneys at DelSignore Law work day in and day out to ensure that 1) we are working towards the outcome of the case that works best for you and 2) we obtain the

Types of defenses attorneys with DelSignore Law may use:

  • Failed breath test: impact of medications, reliability of the machine
  • Failed field sobriety tests: poor weather conditions (rain, fog, snow), sub-par instructions by officer (language barrier, not specific), inappropriate attire for activity (high heels, restricting clothing causing balance issues), medical conditions
  • The police report is scrutinized by the attorney defending you, who has the same training as the police in terms of field sobriety tests. They know the weaknesses of the report and will be able to identify places in the report that you did well on the test, no matter how bad the report may look.

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

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
