Peabody OUI Lawyer

What should you know if you are arrested for OUI in Peabody, Massachusetts. Attorney DelSignore offers the following tips and advice for people arrested for OUI.

Tip 1: Police reports do not contain all the information about your case; in fact, they only contain the negative observations of the officer; do not assume the case cannot be won by reading your police report. As a Peabody OUI Lawyer, I can help you understand how the case will be presented in court and what evidence a judge or jury will hear when the case goes to trial.

Tip 2: Make sure you understand what is going to happen to your license. The job of your lawyer is to explain what will happen at the RMV; if you have a lawyer that says they do not know or the RMV will do whatever they want, then you do not have a lawyer experienced handling OUI cases.

Tip 3: Hire a lawyer immediately to preserve important evidence in your case; your first court date is called the arraignment; it is not your trial, but it is important to make sure that if you want any video evidence that the Commonwealth is ordered to maintain and preserve it.

Most people are very nervous after an OUI charge. It is important to learn the process so that you do not have needless anxiety during the case. One of the common misconceptions people have is about what happens at the court dates. The first court date is the arraignment, it is not the trial, but when you are formally advised of the charges. You will not have to say anything at the arraignment, the officer will not be there, but you will be in front of the judge for about 30 seconds, when the charges are read in court, or if you have a lawyer you can waive the reading of the charges, and you are given another court date if it is your first OUI offense. The next court date will be called a pretrial conference; at that hearing you will be given an opportunity to gather additional evidence in the case and be allowed to set the case down for a motion or trial. It is after the second court date that you are closed to resolving the case with a trial if you want to contest it. If you want to resolve the case, you can also do so at any point during the process.

Peabody District Court is located at One Lowell Street, Peabody, Massachusetts..

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
