Boston DWI Lawyers Will Defend Your Rights
Drunk Driving Defense
When facing a drunk driving charge, many people have difficulty understanding exactly what they have been charged with. They are not incapable; rather, the law is very complex and changes frequently. It can be a trap for the unwary, making it critical to have experienced and knowledgeable representation to guide you through the process.
Do not face a DUI charge by yourself
At the Denner Criminal Defense Group, our attorneys use their experience and skills to navigate the criminal justice system. Although the state has an obligation to protect society from the consequences of drunk driving, it has an equal obligation to preserve the rights of its citizens. Our lawyers make sure the state does just that. Do not face a DWI/DUI charge alone.
Contact the lawyers at the Denner Criminal Defense Group to protect your rights and secure the best possible outcome. Call our Boston office directly (617-500-4398) or toll-free at 866-370-5422.
With you throughout the process
Most people who face a DWI charge are not career criminals, Many, in fact, have never encountered the criminal justice system before; most will never do so again. Because they are unfamiliar with the process, they are doubly in need of representation. We are by your side from the beginning, making sure that you know your options and your rights. We handle your case so that the penalties are minimized as much as possible.
Most of our clients will never have another DUI/DWI charge; when they retain us, they have never had a prior charge, either. For clients for whom the DWI/DUI charge is a first offense, we are usually able to have Massachusetts’ very tough drunk driving penalties limited to the following with a guilty plea:
- Payment of fines and court fees
- Participation in an alcohol/drug education program
- Short-term license suspension
- Able to obtain a hardship license immediately
Second or third DUI charge
If there is any doubt about police conduct during the arrest or breathalyzer test administration, we often recommend that our clients fight the charge. This is even more true in an arrest for a second or third OWI/DUI charge, as the penalties have increased. There is little benefit to pleading guilty to the charge at this level.
Never assume that you cannot win
Even when it appears that the prosecution and police have a strong case, it is still possible to win at trial. Prosecutors make mistakes, as do police officers. When you are facing significant penalties whether or not you plead guilty, it is often smart to go to trial. There is often little to lose and much to gain.
How a skilled attorney handles a drunk driving defense
Our lawyers will file motions to suppress evidence when it appears that evidence was illegally obtained. Our investigators visit the scene. We make sure that the field sobriety test procedures were correctly followed. We do everything possible to ensure that your case is fairly presented to the court, and a jury, if necessary.
