Aggressive OUI Defense Attorney
Drunk driving, known in Massachusetts as OUI (operating under the influence), is a particular focus of law enforcement and the criminal justice system. If you are convicted of OUI, you will lose your driver’s license. If you have multiple convictions, the penalties increase significantly. The cumulative effect of OUI convictions makes it critical to fight every drunk driving charge.
