Rutland, Massachusetts OUI Lawyer

Being arrested for an OUI is not an event to take lightly because the penalties against you are intense; even on a first OUI offense you could face up to two years in prison. Attorney Michael DelSignore has handled many first offense OUI cases in which the client does not have to plead guilty, however, each case is unique and provides its own difficulties.

Beyond the first offense the penalties of an OUI become more strenuous and harsh. It also becomes increasingly more difficult to prove innocence and keep you from steep fees and fines, and jail time.

LEGAL REPRESENTATION

If the idea of facing any of the penalties above does not already worry you, here are a few more reasons hiring experienced legal representation to fight your case is a good idea:

  1. EXPERIENCE. Lawyers at DelSignore Law have faced hundreds of criminal cases in their careers and know the ins and outs of most Massachusetts courts & their presiding judges.
  2. TRAINING. Attorney Michael DelSignore has undergone the same special training as police officers who conduct field sobriety tests. He understands that there are certain ways the tests are supposed to be administered and conducted.
  3. KNOWLEDGE. An untrained eye will read over a police report and may automatically think that there is no case to be made and the best option is to plead guilty to the charges against you. Attorney Michael DelSignore will receive a copy of the police report, examine it & hand it back to you with a completely different story, one that highlights all the ways you can fight your case.

“First Offense OUI Experience”
★★★★★

“Hiring Mike DelSignore was the best decision I made regarding my case. He was available any day, at any time, to answer my questions. His knowledge of the law and legal process is extremely thorough. At trial, he attacked the officers knowledge of the field sobriety tests, and used my medical records to demonstrate why I may have “failed” the roadside tests. His detailed preparation for my court appearances was excellent and I could not have been more pleased with the not guilty end result!”

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
