Fighting a First-Time DUI
Many DUI cases (technically referred to as OUI in Massachusetts) are winnable. Even in those cases where the facts in a Springfield or Worcester OUI case look bad and the evidence against you looks really strong, there are almost always options. Countless times, our DUI defense attorneys have found facts in our clients' favor after just a little digging or mistakes by the police or Massachusetts prosecutors that we are able to use against them.
One of the easiest things to do is to file a Motion to Suppress, which can result in the court either throwing out all the evidence or sending the case back to a clerk magistrate hearing. If the case goes back to a clerk magistrate, we will argue that the evidence against you is weak and that the charges should never have been filed.
Our Worcester and Springfield DUI Lawyers Challenge All Evidence
To properly defend against your charges, our attorneys will conduct their own investigation. We will study the facts of your case, beginning with the traffic stop all the way to the arrest and testing. We will look for answers to specific questions that can help lessen the charge or even get it dismissed. Such questions include:
- Was there probable cause for the initial police stop?
- If you were stopped due to swerving or weaving, was there possibly some other reason for this behavior?
- Were the field sobriety tests administered properly and per standard protocol?
- If you did fail a field sobriety test, were there any medical reasons that could have caused this?
- If your eyes were noted as being bloodshot, were there any other reasons for this, such as contacts, eye infections or fatigue?
We are trained to investigate many other aspects of the arrest when developing an appropriate defense against your drunk driving charges.
