Operating Under The Influence of Drugs or Alcohol requires a specialized defense. From the initial stop, exit orders, field sobriety testing, statements with or without Miranda and breath or blood testing you need an experienced Attorney. Inevitably evidence and admissibility will play a key role in the outcome of your case. Without an experienced Counsel by your side you may be at a grave disadvantage. I have been specializing in alcohol & drug related case for over twenty years. Whether it’s your first, second, third or subsequent offense you need to be informed about all the ramifications that will affect your ability to operate a motor vehicle, what to expect from the Registry of Motor vehicles, availability of license suspension hearings and so much more. Was there a traffic violation that resulted in the initial stop, an accident, was someone injured ? All these responses and more may determine whether you might be a candidate for incarceration verses alternative programs.
Increasingly more & more Cities and Towns in the Commonwealth are arranging & effecting Sobriety Checkpoints or Roadblocks. A stick scrutiny standard of review is applied by the courts in Roadblock cases since Constitutional infringements on citizens right to travel freely & unabridged are at stake. Without a qualified, experienced Attorney representing you who has the familiarity to know what to look for you can be sorely disadvantaged.
