OUI – 2nd Offense
If you are pulled over and charged with Operating your Motor Vehicle under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs in Massachusetts, the ramifications of a conviction can be life-altering. These charges are commonly referred to as an OUI Liquor or OUI Drugs for short. Even if you have a pristine driving record, there are harsh penalties associated with an OUI conviction.
This is why it is extremely important to speak with an experienced attorney for you to understand the multi-step levels of the criminal legal system. There is so much material available online, however, much is not updated, incorrect, misleading, or misinterpreted by the average reader. Without a full understanding of your rights, there are immediate consequences that go unknown, which can turn into long-term consequences when you are not appropriately advised by an experienced criminal attorney.
We at Eden Rafferty can help. We have handled thousands of criminal cases and have seen both sides of the law. We are devoted in protecting the accused. When we first meet with our clients, we want to terminate the helpless feeling within moments. The law is complicated, so we created a simplified approach.
The first step, We Listen. The feeling that no one believes your story ends. The feeling that your story will be heard begins.
Second, We Educate. We understand the importance of humanizing the law and explaining each step of the process with respect to each of our client’s particular circumstances, quite often something overlooked by many of our peers.
Third, We Reclaim. We want the feeling that when our clients leave our office, they are not only confident they will be protected, but their dignity is reclaimed.
Many OUI arrests occur over the weekend, making it difficult to get a return call back from an attorney. If you have been arrested for an OUI, call our office day or night. You will speak with a live person who could assist you directly or can be assured an attorney will call you back. Questions and concerned need to be immediately addressed, and we understand that. A formal free consultation can then be scheduled so you know who will be protecting you. Call our office at 508-795-1601.
