Every OUI case is different. This is what drew me to begin my own practice for OUI defense in Massachusetts. Many times, drunk-driving cases are treated as generic and “cookie-cutter” cases. I don’t handle them this way. Every stop, every person, and every set of circumstances is unique and deserves to be reviewed as such. I am passionate about science and the need for lawyers to understand the science surrounding the measurement of blood alcohol and its effects on the human body. The entire judicial system needs to have a better understanding of the problem of identifying people under the influence. Education and progress through cutting edge defense are what my practice sets out to do.
When I was attending Clark University as an undergraduate, I was on the tennis team and it was then when I became interested in becoming a lawyer. The captain of the team offered me an internship with an attorney for a public defender’s office. I remained an intern there for three years. This experience made me realize that a career in legal services was what I wanted. I went on to earn my J.D. from Western New England College in 1990.
While my law practice is located in Springfield, Massachusetts, I represent clients from the Berkshires to Boston. This practice has been open for 24 years and I have provided legal services for alcohol and drug-related offenses, including traffic, misdemeanor, and felony charges. My services also include helping clients reinstate their licenses.
