What do you need to bring to your first appointment with an OUI Lawyer in Massachusetts?

Often when somebody makes an appointment to discuss their arrest, which is generally over the weekend, they wonder what documents they should bring to the attorney.

In most cases you will not have the police report, but will have the bail slip, copy of the notice of license suspension and possibly a citation for OUI. You can bring each of those documents if you were arrested over the weekend. Those documents will have some information that I will want to review during your appointment.

If for some reason you don’t have any documentation, you can certainly still come to the office as it will still be valuable for me to speak with you and explain the law and what you’ll face in court. If you’ve already been arraigned and been to court, you may now have a copy of the complaint and police report. If you do have these documents you can bring those to the appointment.

While you may not have all of the pertinent information, the narrative section of the police report is an important part of the case and provides a good start for me to understand more about the case and to discuss the case in greater detail with you. When an individual comes to an appointment and does not have any of these documents it is not a problem, I can still discuss the case with them and discuss their defenses. Typically because all the information is not available immediately, it is not crucial to have a copy of the police report. If you call me to schedule an appointment, I will sometimes send you an intake form while many people will not have time to complete this prior to the appointment, if you can complete it this will be beneficial for you to bring.

  • What Will you learn at your first appointment?

At the first appointment, what I will do is explain what is going to happen in court, the law, how the case will be defended, what the issues may be in your case based on what you tell me and what I know about the case from the other information you have and I answer any of your questions.

  • At your appointment, you will Receive a Free Book I wrote Massachusetts OUI Laws

I will provide you with a copy of my book that explains the law and if hired, will then go to court with you on the next court date. In many cases, this court date may be an inconvenient date for you but court dates can be moved with relative ease in almost any case. If you have questions, you can learn more about OUI laws in Massachusetts by watching some of my YouTube videos, downloading my book or simply picking up the phone and giving me a call.

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
★★★★★
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
