Protect Your Rights

If you or someone you care about has been arrested for drunk driving, it’s important to understand that you have rights, including the right to due process and the right to competent legal representation. If you contact our offices at Gilman Law, our Massachusetts drunk driving attorneys will provide you with the best possible defense and do everything in their power to help you achieve a favorable outcome in your case. Our drunk driving lawyers are highly skilled, experienced, and dedicated to helping our clients receive justice.

What Are the Consequences for Those Convicted of Drunk Driving?

When you’re charged with drunk driving, the consequences can be quite severe—even if it’s your first offense. Some of the penalties you may face if convicted of drunk driving include:

  • Fines of up to several thousand dollars
  • Prison time
  • License suspension
  • A significant waiting period before having access to a hardship license

If you don’t have dependable legal representation when you’re charged with drunk driving, the odds of you suffering these consequences will be greatly increased. Unfortunately, the legal system is designed to take advantage of those who do not understand their rights or choose the right people to fight on their behalf. At Gilman Law, our drunk driving attorneys will work hard to minimize your penalties and ensure that you are not taken advantage of during the legal process.

In addition to the direct consequences of a DUI, being convicted of drunk driving can have a number of other effects on your personal and professional life. Some of the collateral consequences of a DUI conviction could potentially include:

  • Difficulty finding and keeping a job
  • Difficulty pursuing education
  • Being ineligible for certain types of professional licenses
  • Losing your child custody or visitation rights
  • Difficulties with your immigration status
  • Inability to travel to certain countries, including Canada
  • Loss of your right to possess firearms (if convicted of a felony)

At Gilman Law, our attorneys understand how impactful a drunk driving conviction can be on your life, which is why we strive to provide our clients with exceptional legal representation.

What Can a Drunk Driving Attorney Do for You?

Although every drunk driving case is unique, you can always trust that our expert attorneys at Gilman Law will passionately represent your interests and provide you with honest legal advice throughout the process. Depending on the specific context of your DUI arrest, there are several ways in which our lawyers could help you resolve the case.

In many cases, the specific reason for your arrest could be a significant factor in your defense. For example, our drunk driving lawyers in MA will work hard to determine whether or not the arresting officer in your case truly had probable cause to pull you over in the first place. We will also investigate the evidence to determine whether or not you were actually breaking the law at the time of your arrest. It’s important to remember that you are not obligated to participate in field sobriety tests, and a police officer can only take a blood sample if they have a warrant or if you’ve consented.

Our drunk driving attorneys at Gilman Law are exceptionally skilled at investigating cases and uncovering evidence that’s beneficial to our clients. Our team will study your case closely, obtain any relevant documents, study witness testimonies, and do everything we can to help you receive a favorable outcome, such as preserving your license and avoiding any large fines or jail time.
