Successful Defense of OUI Charges
Despite what you may believe, it is possible to overcome an OUI charge, even if you were over the limit. Our firm will examine every aspect of the circumstances of your arrest, looking for flaws in the state’s case.
Some of the factors that could result in a dismissal of the charge include:
- Lack of probable cause for the police to pull you over
- Lack of probable cause for the police to order you to exit your vehicle
- Improperly conducted field sobriety tests
- Inadmissible breath tests
- Other factual and legal issues
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts must prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt. O’Connor and Ryan will use every means at our disposal to make that impossible. When it can aid in your defense, we can consult with experts in blood alcohol testing and other specialists who can challenge the prosecutor’s assertions.
Protecting Your Rights
Regarding OUI, Massachusetts has a lifetime look-back period. Once a conviction gets on your record, it will stay there forever. Any subsequent conviction will result in more serious consequences, even if you move to another state. You owe it to yourself to retain strong and effective legal representation. Don’t take chances with your future. O’Connor and Ryan will work to protect your rights and preserve your freedom.
