Boston OUI Lawyer

A Team with Over 20 Years of Experience

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to be drunk to receive an OUI. According to a state law passed in July 2004, you can be charged with Operating Under the Influence if your blood-alcohol content (BAC) reads 0.08% or higher on a breathalyzer test. Not all people feel the effects of alcohol when they reach this blood-alcohol level. Regardless of your level of impairment, you may face jail time, large fines, license restrictions, and more if you are caught driving with an illegal BAC. Get the help of an experienced Boston criminal defense lawyer.

If you are facing OUI charges, reach out to our firm. Attorney Jack Diamond spent four years of his legal career as a prosecutor. He uses this inside knowledge of "the other side" to aggressively defend his clients. He also has more than two decades of experience in the courtroom.

You can reach our Boston office 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at (617) 925-6772. We also have offices in Quincy, Plymouth, and Hingham.

What to Expect from Start to Finish

When you are arrested for a DUI/OUI, you should call your lawyer as soon as possible. A confident Boston OUI attorney may be the difference between a severe penalty and a simple acquittal.

Jack Diamond Law Offices can stick by you throughout the entire legal process, including:

  • The arraignment: This is when the court will read your charges and you will enter a plea. If the District Attorney’s office requests bail, then you will need to attend a bail hearing shortly after.
  • The pre-trial conference: At this appointment, the defendant and his or her lawyer sit down with the prosecution to discuss the case. Sometimes, cases are resolved at the pre-trial conference. However, if you are not happy with the offers made at this meeting, you have the right to a trial in court.
  • The motion hearing: Not all cases have motion hearings. However, if you believe that the evidence in your case was obtained illegally, your lawyer can request a motion to suppress it. In some cases, the motion hearing may result in a full case dismissal.
  • The trial: If your case goes to trial, an attorney will advocate for you in court by telling your side of the story and presenting the evidence in your favor. The prosecution will also present their findings. Some trials go to one judge, while others go to a jury of six people. The decision for a trial by judge or trial by jury is not typically made until the court date.
  • The sentencing: If you are found guilty of an OUI, the judge will determine your sentence based on recommendations given by the prosecution and by your defending attorney. This process normally takes place immediately after the trial.

Every case is different, which is why you need a lawyer who has extensive experience in criminal law. Check out our five-star testimonials to see what sets Jack Diamond Law Offices apart from the rest.
