Massachusetts DUI Laws

In the state of Massachusetts, it is illegal to drive or operate a motor vehicle if you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. According to state DUI law, a person is considered too impaired to drive if his or her blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is .08% or higher. If a driver is under the age of 21, he or she is prohibited from driving if his or her BAC is higher than .02%. Any driver in Boston or throughout the state of Massachusetts found driving with a BAC at or above the legal limit will be arrested and booked on DUI charges. At this time, it’s best to contact a seasoned Boston DUI lawyer who has the experience and skill to defend you in court. Judges, prosecutors, and law enforcement authorities have no tolerance for people who drive under the influence, and always prosecute those people harshly in court.

He struck an unmarked police vehicle that was parked on the side of the street. Witnesses reported the accident. The police responded and learned that our client had driven the car, struck the police car and left the scene. Our client was contacted by the police.

    In September of 2019, around 1:30 in the morning a man was pulled over for driving in excess of 100 miles per hour. The officer testified that the man smelled of alcohol and admitted to drinking at a party. Several field sobriety tests were administered. Specifically, the horizontal gaze nystagmus, walk and turn and one legged stand. The man supposedly failed each test. According to the officer he asked to count in French during the one legged stand countdown, used his hands for balance on the walk and turn test and was falling significantly during the testing. He was charged with OUI, G.L. c. 90 section 24. He retained us to represent him. The case was delayed due to COVID. Just today we tried that case to a not guilty.
