In Massachusetts it is a crime to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, or with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of eight one-hundreths (.08) or greater. If you have been arrested and charged with a drunk driving offense (OUI DUI DWI), you need the assistance of a Massachusetts Drunk Driving lawyer in order to fully protect your interests.

A drunk driving charge (OUI DUI DWI) is a serious matter and it needs to be treated that way. Almost always a drunk driving charge results in a driver’s license suspension. That will undoubtedly impact your livelihood. Even more troubling, OUI DUI DWI charges can result in jail time. Since 2002, Massachusetts courts have applied a “lifetime lookback” policy to repeat offenders. This means that a prior drunk driving offense (OUI DUI DWI), no matter how old and even if out of state, will follow you for the rest of your life. With the passage of Melanie’s Law in 2005, drunk driving (OUI DUI DWI) penalties in Massachusetts have been enhanced drastically. Those most affected are repeat offenders. Whether you have been charged with a first offense or a fifth offense OUI DUI DWI, there is a lot at stake. Read more about Massachusetts OUI DUI DWI penalties here
