Worcester First OUI Defense Lawyers
When you are arrested for drunk driving, you may feel overwhelmed and intimidated by the criminal justice process. It may be tempting to just plead guilty to the charges against you and put your mistake behind you. However, to do so may have serious consequences. At the law firm of LoConto & Madaio, P.C., our Worcester first OUI defense attorneys can help you fight your charges. We will walk you through the entire process every step of the way, so you always understand what is happening.
Dedicated to Building a Strong Defense
Pleading guilty to a first OUI offense can have far-reaching consequences. The passage of Melanie's Law has stiffened potential penalties for first-time offenders. You may face the loss of your driver's license, heavy fines, increased insurance premiums and even jail time. In addition, a first offense will follow you for years, and if you are found to be driving under the influence a second time, you will face even harsher penalties and increase your risk of being charged with felony OUI.
At LoConto & Madaio, P.C., our lawyers will immediately get to work on building you a strong defense. We can challenge the conclusions drawn from field sobriety tests or question the results of a Breathalyzer test. If you were stopped at a sobriety checkpoint, there are a number of defenses we can raise. As former prosecutors, our Worcester first OUI defense attorneys know how the other side builds its case. We will use this insight to your advantage when we work on your defense.
Helping You With Driver's License Hearings
Another common problem that first-time offenders run into is what to do at the DMV hearing regarding their driver's license suspension. Many people are not aware that if they do not make an appearance at this hearing, their driver's license will be automatically suspended. We can tell you what to expect at the DMV hearing and will provide you with experienced representation at the hearing as well.
