Success Through Relentless Perseverance

Our office has comprehensive knowledge of Melanie's Law, other drunk driving offense laws, and the strict penalties for drunk driving and Breathalyzer refusal. We analyze evidence, challenge Breathalyzers, strategize defenses and thoroughly prepare for meetings with the prosecution to discuss the charges. We have achieved a 98 percent success rate in effectively resolving drunk driving charges in Massachusetts. Examples of our thorough and zealous approach to drunk driving defense include:

  • Review the calibration and maintenance records of the Breathalyzer. It is false that these machines are infallible. A Breathalyzer is a machine and machines do not always work properly.
  • File motions to suppress evidence which may result in case dismissal.
  • Re-test blood alcohol content (BAC) by a private lab to question accuracy.
  • Hire an expert scientific analyst to determine if the driver's blood alcohol concentration was actually less than the .08 percent legal limit at the time of driving.
  • Photograph the scene of the arrest to evaluate road conditions, and the ground levelness when the driver performed the field sobriety tests.
  • Cross-examine the police officer to expose mistakes and inaccuracies in the gathering of evidence.

The OUI, DWI and DUI Difference

Some jurisdictions refer to drunk driving offenses by different terminology. However, essentially the charges and the defense strategies remain constant.

  • OUI — Operating under the influence
  • DWI — Driving while intoxicated
  • DUI — Driving under the influence
