Framingham, Worcester, Brockton – OUI, DUI, Drunk Driving Defense
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts aggressively prosecutes driving under the influence charges. The potential penalties for a conviction for an Operating under the Influence of Liquor charge can be outright devastating. A DUI conviction will most likely carry with it significant fines, court fees, loss of driver’s license, and even jail time. For instance, the penalties can range from up to 2 ½ years in a house of correction and $5,000.00 fine for the first offense OUI, to up to 5 years in a state prison and $15,000.00 fine for a third OUI conviction. Your license can be suspended for up to 1 year following a conviction for the first offense and up to 8 years for a third OUI conviction. In addition to the social stigma associated with a criminal conviction, an OUI conviction can result in a number of collateral consequences such as: higher insurance costs, a person’s ability to find and keep employment, as well as potential immigration implications for people, who are not U.S. citizens. If you have been charged with a Drunk Driving offense, you should contact an experienced Massachusetts OUI lawyer.

Was charged with OUI, reckless driving and possession with intent to distribute. Once I met Sergey, I knew he was the guy to handle my case. Talking with other people, my best case scenario was taking some sort of plea deal. Earlier today I was found not guilty of all 3 charges, thanks to the professionalism of Mr. Mikhlin.
