Areas We Serve

Experienced Legal Representation

If you or a loved one in Massachusetts has been arrested and charged with an OUI, or if you are being investigated for it, you need an experienced and trusted Massachusetts OUI attorney to represent you. We are a state-wide firm and accept all cases across Massachusetts. I have been practicing law in Springfield and surrounding areas for almost two decades. I have built a sound reputation as a skilled defense attorney within many of the court systems in Massachusetts. In addition to Springfield, my firm concentrates on Belchertown, Chicopee, Westfield, Northampton, Holyoke, Pittsfield, Palmer, North Adams, Greenfield, Barnstable County, Berkshire County, Bristol County, Dukes County, Essex County, Franklin County, Hampshire County, Middlesex County, Nantucket County, Norfolk County, Plymouth County, Suffolk County, Worcester County. My firm can provide professional legal representation in out of state OUI, OUI with injury, OUI with drugs, leaving the scene and vehicular manslaughter cases.

DUI Attorney

If you have been charged with an OUI, whether it is a first time OUI or multiple OUIs, in Hampshire, Franklin, Berkshire, or Hampden counties, my firm can provide you with a sound and insightful defense. My attention to detail in the preparation stage is second to none. I firmly believe this is the key to the execution of a successful defense. I have tried over 200 cases to jury in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, many of these OUI cases. OUI penalties, as with any penalties for criminal charges, are going to disrupt your life and career. When people are arrested for OUI or a criminal charge, the majority are ashamed and humiliated. This is no reason not to prepare an effective defense for your case. I understand how you feel and what you are going through. I have been through this before with hundreds of clients and I know how I can best help you. Don't enter the criminal justice system without a friend who knows the law and is experienced in applying it.
