Experienced New Bedford DUI Lawyers
Drunk driving has become a major political issue in Massachusetts. Police have become more aggressive in operating under the influence cases. Prosecutors and judges feel pressure to prosecute and convict from various groups and organizations. As a result many people are seeing their rights violated. When "Melanie's Law" became Massachusetts law in 2005, the penalties for drunk driving increased dramatically. Multiple drunk driving offenses now involve facing mandatory jail time, hefty fines, a lengthy license suspension, and a "breathalyzer interlock" may be installed in your vehicle. If you are facing charges of OUI (operating under the influence), DWI (driving while intoxicated), or DUI (driving under the influence), you need a skilled criminal defense attorney at your side to vigorously fight your drunk driving charges. The criminal law defense team at Percy Law Group, PC, will fight to protect your rights against drunk driving, DUI, DWI and OUI charges.

Trusted and Determined Trial Counsel: Your Sword and Shield
Drunk driving incidents that were quietly resolved or even ignored years ago are now leading to arrests and prosecutions. Even worse the police and prosecutors are seeking more serious consequences for a conviction. If you face a drunk driving arrest, you want an attorney who can help you build the best possible DUI/DWI/OUI defense. First-time drunk drivers have been particularly put in harm's way. They have to jump through a lot of hoops, and even after an exhausting criminal process, they may still lose your ability to drive freely. In most cases, if convicted, you will have to attend classes or rehabilitation. In most cases the court will provide some way for you to get to your job, but if you refuse to take a breath or blood test, your license could be suspended long-term.
Investigating your Drunk Driving/DUI/DWI/OUI Case
The reasons for the initial stop and the procedures used in alcohol or narcotics testing must be within the law and must not violate your rights. We will review the arrest record and all test results. In court proceedings we will aggressively cross examine the arresting officer and challenge the testing procedures and testing devices. We understand that you have a lot at stake when facing charges of drinking and driving, and we will work hard to help you protect your rights. We also represent individuals facing additional issues with their drunk driving arrest. For example, if you have been previously arrested or convicted of drunk driving you will have to worry about the consequences of multiple OUI's. If you have a commercial drivers license, your entire career is at stake.
