Amherst OUI Attorney
Protecting Your Future with a Proven OUI Firm
With Amherst and the surrounding towns being home to the Five College community, the possibility of being charged with OUI and dealing with the consequences is significantly higher for the many young people in the area. Facing criminal charges related to impaired driving, whether it is from alcohol, drugs or a combination of both, puts you at risk for serious penalties in Massachusetts. Like other states, law enforcement, prosecutors and judges do not take this criminal charge lightly. For a favorable outcome, such as a dismissal, reduced charges or an acquittal, you will need an experienced Amherst OUI attorney who is highly knowledgeable and committed to your defense. The Law Offices of Joseph D. Bernard provides skilled representation in this complex legal field to those in Amherst and the surrounding areas.
I have over two decades of experience, which includes trying over 400 jury trials. When you hire me, you are working with an attorney who not only has the legal acumen to navigate the court and RMV, but the knowledge to fight your case on its scientific merits. I am the only attorney in Massachusetts who has completed both Borkenstein Courses which were developed by the creator of the breathalyzer. Furthermore, I have been nationally recognized for my work defending OUI cases, and I am a lecturer and author on the topic of OUI defense for professional continuing legal education. As soon as you retain my services, I will immediately get to work to investigate and analyze the evidence so as to uncover any material that will work in your defense. Because I take a limited number of cases in order to provide exceptional attention to those I represent, it is highly recommended that you contact me as early as possible following an arrest.
