Facing OUI/DWI Charges?
At Ohlson & Ohlson, Attorneys at Law, our attorneys defend clients in Woburn and throughout Massachusetts, who have been charged with drunk driving, known as OUI or DWI. Massachusetts takes driving under the influence very seriously, and at a minimum, drivers who are convicted may face significant jail time, license suspension and hefty fines even for a first offense for OUI.
We Can Help Protect Your Rights
Whether you have a single conviction for driving under the influence, or you’ve been convicted multiple times, your future could be in jeopardy. As an experienced Massachusetts defense lawyer, George Ohlson has successfully defended clients by thoroughly reviewing the situation, the arrest and the evidence in the prosecution’s case. Some aspects of the situation he reviews include:
- The reason for the stop. It’s important to understand why the vehicle was stopped in the first place because if no clear reason exists, this piece of evidence may be excluded from your case.
- How the field sobriety test was administered. There’s a very specific way in which field sobriety tests must be done and if the regulations according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration manual aren’t followed, the results may not be admissible.
- The results of the blood test. If a blood test was done, it can be important to have a third-party independent lab retest the blood sample.
- Breathalyzer maintenance and administration. Breathalyzers must be maintained to specific standards, and breathalyzer tests must be completed in a specific way to produce accurate results. We will ensure that all the necessary steps were taken and if not, work to get inaccurate results dismissed as evidence.
We will do all we can to mitigate the penalties that you are facing and help you move through the process as efficiently and effectively as possible. For answers to your questions about the DUI process, visit our Frequently Asked Questions page or call our office to speak with one of our attorneys.
