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.

  • Conditions of Probation Modified to Eliminate SCRAM Device

    Before we represented this individual he had been convicted of OUI under G.L. c 90 section 24. While on probation he picked up another OUI and our office was hired. His violation of probation prompted the judge to put him on the SCRAM device requiring him to provide random breath samples three time a day. After several months of successfully following the judge's order, we moved to remove that condition. The judge accepted our argument and the random breathalyzer requirement no longer exists.

  • Second Offense OUI Against Partner in Top CPA Firm Reduced to First Offense (Cahill) Disposition

    Our client is a partner in a top CPA firm. Many years ago she was convicted of OUI under G.L. c. 90 section 24. Recently, she was involved in an accident where she flipped her car on the offramp to a local highway. The responding officers detected her being unsteady on her feet, smelling of alcohol and not clearly responsive to their questions. Body camera video supported their observations. She was charged with OUI 2nd offense. We got her a Cahill disposition meaning that this will be treated as a first offense due to the fact that the prior conviction was more than 10 years ago.

  • Second Offense OUI Against Federal Officer Reduced to First Offense (Cahill) Disposition

    Our client is a federal law enforcement officer who has struggled with substance abuse issues for years. A few months ago he was driving his car around 11:00 a.m. He was operating erratically and he sideswiped several cars. The responding officers were wearing body cameras. The footage clearly displayed our client in an impaired state. He was charged with OUI drugs, a second offense under G.L. c. 90 section 24.  Because the prior offense was more than one year ago the judge, over the objection of the assistant district attorney agreed with our request that this be treated as a 1st offense. This is often referred to as a Cahill disposition.
