We Lead the Way in OUI Defense in Massachusetts

Attorney Bernard is lead counsel in the five year litigation with the breath test machines in Massachusetts. This litigation demonstrated the unreliability of breath tests and 27,000 citizens in Massachusetts might be able to overturn their prior convictions. If you had a drunk driving conviction from 2011 to 2019, the case might be overturned.
