Helping Defend You Against OUI/DUI Charges

Being arrested for operating under the influence (OUI/DUI) in Massachusetts is a serious matter. In fact, whether you are a first-time offender or you have multiple past offenses on your record, you will likely face steep fines, jail time and the loss of your driver's license.

If the police recently pulled you over for drunk or drugged driving in Worcester or Middlesex counties, it is important that you act immediately to limit the consequences and prevent a black mark from appearing on your record.

What Sets The Law Office Of Patrick K. Burke Apart

Many OUI/DUI attorneys take the easy way out when it comes to drunk driving charges. Instead of fighting for their clients in court, they urge their clients to take a plea bargain.

However, attorney Burke's first instinct is not to settle ― it is to fight. If you retain our law office, he will investigate the evidence, including arrest records, police reports, the arresting officer's training, experience and history, and other relevant information. If he can determine that your arrest was improper in any way ― due to a failure to observe arrest protocol, improper administration of (or false positives from) breathalyzer or blood testing, or general lack of evidence ― he will work to have your OUI/DUI charge dismissed before trial, or acquittal if a trial is needed.

Only when there are no better OUI/DUI defense options available will he seek out a plea bargain. In such cases, he will seek to limit the negative consequences by seeking an alternative disposition in lieu of jail time.
