Woburn OUI Lawyer
Being arrested for OUI in Woburn is an unfortunately common occurrence. The police in the town frequently arrest drivers and charge them with OUI after alleging that a driver made "marked lane violations". A marked lane violation, for example, is when a motorist either swerves over the yellow line or crosses the white fog line. There are a number of marked lane violations you may be charged with. However, in regards to fighting the OUI charge, at court we will highlight many of the things you did correctly before you were arrested- read on to learn more.WHY DID THE POLICE PULL ME OVER?
Simply stated, police need reasonable suspicion to pull your car over. With OUI charges, police generally stop a vehicle after receiving a call from a civilian alleging that you were all over the road or after the police make some sort of observation for themselves. Commonly, police are sitting on the side of the road and notice that a motorist is going slower than usual or is stopping at green lights, etc. Another common reason police pull a person over and end up charging them with OUT is due to inconsistent speed; this is when a motorist is going at a high rate of speed, slowing down, then speeding back up.
Read what our clients have to say about us:
After being involved in a car accident I found myself charged with OUI. I was scheduled to go to the court house for the next morning for an arraignment and had no idea what to expect. To my surprise, I googled reputable OUI attorneys and got Mike DelSignores phone number. I called him and was able to speak to him before heading into the court house. We briefly discussed my case and he advised me what to say at my arraignment. From that point on, I was always able to speak with Attorney DelSignore or his associate Attorney Gaudreau. Mike explained that my case would be better as a bench trial and, per his advice, I was found not guilty! I can't tell you how glad and fortunate I feel that Mike's name came up on that google search that night. I highly recommend him if you find yourself in these unfortunate circumstances.
