A common question asked by a client charged with an OUI in Mendon is are there any defenses when I register above the legal limit on a breathalyzer.

Michael DelSignore has had great success fighting cases where the client has registered well above the legal limit. He has successfully defended cases both in the Milford District Court where Mendon arrests are heard and throughout Massachusetts. You can see examples of successfully defended breath test cases on the DUI case results page on this site and on the lawyer review site Avvo.com under his attorney profile.

What it is like to work with Attorney DelSignore

When working with Attorney DelSignore, handles all motions and trials and meets with his clients throughout the process to discuss the case, review the client intake form given out at the beginning of the case and to take pictures of the area of the arrest if it can be done safely. Attorney DelSignore does have an associate who sometimes handles routine court dates.

How Breath test Results can be Challenged?

In OUI cases, police officers will often fail to follow the proper procedure in administering the test which undermines the scientific reliability of the results. A hearing is scheduled in court which address whether the Commonwealth can establish the legal requirements to admit a breath test result. If this motion is denied other defenses to a breath test case include:

  • Disconnection between the results and officer’s observations
  • Showing that a Medical condition may have made the results inaccurate in your case.
  • Arguing to the jury that the officer did not follow the correct procedures, undermining the reliability of the results.

Those charged with first offense OUI in Mendon will very often be offered a plea bargain of a continued without a finding or better known as a CWOF. Many clients will ask if this is a good deal. While a CWOF technically not a guilty verdict, it still has severe consequences. There will be an automatic suspension of license, fines and mandatory alcohol classes. Along with this, even though it is technically not a conviction, if someone with a CWOF is arrested again for drunk driving, it will still be considered a second offense OUI which carries harsher penalties.

If you feel like there you were treated unfairly or there is a defense to your drunk driving charge, it is important to not settle for a CWOF and contact an experienced OUI attorney who will take your case to trial.

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
★★★★★
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
