Boston DUI Lawyer
Aggressive DUI Defense Attorney
If you are facing OUI or DUI charges in Boston, it's important to speak with an experienced DUI defense lawyer as soon as possible. You may not think your DUI charges are serious, but they are! An OUI or DUI conviction can result in a number of penalties that could take a serious toll on many aspects of your life. First and foremost, your driver's license will be suspended, which will not only make it difficult to get to work, school, and other important places, but it will also hamper your social life as well. An experienced and skilled Boston DUI lawyer can ensure your rights are protected, and aggressively fight your charges to help you avoid a license suspension and other serious penalties.

Mr. Brant has a great deal of knowledge and experience in Massachusetts DUI law, and is familiar with many defense strategies that have proven to be effective time and time again.

felony charges for a
5th DUI offense, Mr. Brant will aggressively defend you at each stage of your case, and do everything possible to help you avoid a DUI conviction. In addition, Mr. Brant has experience handling DUI cases involving

Considering the potentially harsh penalties that may be associated with a DUI conviction, it is important to move quickly and discuss your options in challenging these charges with an experienced lawyer. Although you may have failed a breath tests administered after you were arrested or may have been told that you failed field sobriety tests that were administered by the officer at the scene, there are viable defenses to these tests. A competent attorney may be able to uncover a violation of your rights or a mistake made by a law enforcement officer that will offer sufficient grounds to file a motion to suppress evidence or negotiate with the prosecuting attorney to have your charges dropped entirely. Instead of giving up or choosing to work with a public defender who may not have the time or experience that your case needs, work with a private lawyer who has more than two decades of experience under his belt, including time as a former prosecutor. This may make all the difference in the swift and favorable resolution of your case.
About the DUI Process
The DUI process begins when a Boston law enforcement officer spots a driver who has violated a traffic law or appears to be swerving or showing some other indication of intoxication. After pulling the driver over to the side of the road, the officer will look for outward signs that may indicate that the driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and the smell of alcohol are examples of what the officer may look for. The next step will be to ask the driver to perform one or more field sobriety tests, and depending upon the driver's performance on these the officer may make an DUI arrest. After the arrest, the driver will be asked to perform a breath test or blood test to determine his or her blood alcohol concentration. The final step would be charging the driver with OUI/DUI, and this is usually based the result the breath or blood test showed.
It is important to understand every step of the Boston DUI process, as your attorney can use any errors or mistakes made during this process to your advantage in building your defense strategy. For example, an improperly administered breath test or an unlawful police stop may be grounds to alter the course of your case.
