    SEPTEMBER 2020 - FIRST OFFENSE

    Our client was charged with OUI-first offense. After a review of our client's booking video, Attorney Bernard discovered exculpatory evidence that gave our client leverage to fight this charge. Attorney Bernard was able to use this video evidence in negotiations with the prosecutor, who agreed to drop the OUI charge. Furthermore, due to Attorney Bernard's productive dialogue with the prosecutor, Count Two, involving negligent operation, was continued without finding for one year. Our client was found not responsible for Count Three, involving operation of an unregistered motor vehicle. Clients of Attorney Bernard know that anything that can be done, will be done, and this was an excellent result!
