We help those accused of DUI or OUI battle the prosecution

Most of us know the law. As law-abiding citizens, we know it isn't legal to get behind the wheel when one is intoxicated. However, accidents can happen as can extenuating circumstances. If you or a loved one has been charged with DUI or OUI, you may be wondering what the options are. DUI convictions have come with more serious consequences in recent years; however, if a person isn't guilty of this crime, they shouldn't face the consequences.

The Massachusetts state or county prosecutor will do their best to build a damning case against a person accused of DUI or OUI. They might reference BAC levels, a blood test or other forms of evidence taken at the time of the arrest or sobriety test. However, these tests must be administered according to protocol. If the arresting agency did not follow proper procedure, for example, that evidence may be inadmissible in court.

Potential consequences a person could face if convicted of DUI or OUI include fines, license suspension, marks on their permanent record and even jail time in severe cases. A multiple offender (a person who has been convicted of a DUI before) should proceed with caution as the penalties get more severe for repeat offenders. At Aitken Chacharone & Power PC, we have helped thousands accused of DUI-related offenses. Each case is different and will require a specific approach to ensure the best defense is crafted and presented.

This can be a time of dread and panic for anyone accused of DUI or OUI. While you can't turn back the hands of time, you can put your best foot forward now. There are ways to build a defense against such serious allegations. With the help of an attorney, you can build a strong defense to refute these allegations.
