“I called Mike’s personal phone and was in touch with him right away. He always responded to my phone calls or emails in a timely manner. He outlined my options for defense and explained what he thought would be the best defense for my case. I was very nervous, but Mike made sure I understood every step of the process, what was expected of me and what he would try to do at trial to defend me.” -AVVO client review

Defenses to OUI charges in Massachusetts

Below are some of the ways Attorney Michael DelSignore may defend you in court.

  1. Challenging the basis on which the officer pulled the client over.
    1. Cross-examination of the officer’s testimony and report during motion hearing using video evidence.
      1. Being distracted while driving (weaving in and out of lanes, turning too wide, driving below the speed limit) are not illegal and does not mean someone is driving under the influence of alcohol.
  2. Challenging field sobriety tests.
    1. Reliability: studies conducted by the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration have proved the field sobriety tests administered by police officers are minimally reliable.
    2. Providing personal reasons to why the client may have failed the field sobriety tests (age, weight, medical conditions, weather conditions, etc.).
    3. Using video evidence to show exactly how the tests were administered by the officer.
    4. Using video evidence to provide context to the allegedly failed tests, such as the road and weather conditions and the client’s attire.
  3. Challenging breathalyzers.
    1. Hire an expert to challenge the accuracy of the test results.
    2. Prove that the result could be below the legal limit given the margin of error.
    3. Provide medical conditions that would cause the breathalyzer to produce a result negatively in the client’s favor.
  4. Providing evidence that the client is a positive, contributing member to the community.
    1. Bringing in witnesses to testify against the officer and/or in the client’s favor.
    2. Calling in outside testimonies that you are a positive member of society.
      1. The client’s job, family, hobbies, etc.
    3. Possible testimony from the client.

★★★★★
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
