Top 10 questions to ask a Massachusetts OUI Lawyer

Many people charged with OUI in Massachusetts should never expect having to step foot in a courtroom.
This is because most people are first time offenders with no prior criminal record, no arrest record and may have been unjustifiably arrested.

Let me say that you are not alone in being charged with drunk driving in Massachusetts.
It is easy to get charged; being charged means that the police officer thought you were under the influence. While being charged is certainly stressful, embarrassing and a strain on your finances, job and family life, it is not the same as the Commonwealth proving the case and obtaining a conviction. Once you learn how the process works, understand that many have gone through this process before, understand your Constitutional rights and defenses to an OUI charge, I guarantee that some of your frustration and anxiety will be reduced.

With that advice in mind, your next step is to hire an experienced Massachusetts OUI lawyer.
Here is a list of 10 questions you should consider asking, to assist in your search for the right Massachusetts OUI lawyer for your case.

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
★★★★★
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 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
