What to Do After Your OUI Arrest
Consult with a Boston OUI Attorney from Keegan Law
If you have been arrested for driving under the influence (OUI), there is a very limited amount of time in which you can hire an attorney and take the necessary legal steps to defend yourself. Your first action should be to retain quality legal representation for the best chance at a strong defense. At Keegan Law, we offer skills, knowledge, and resources to counsel you through any OUI battle.
At Keegan Law, we have nearly 40 years of combined experience and can thoroughly and aggressively defend you while guiding you step-by-step through the detailed legal process.
Steps To Take to Protect Your Freedom
After being arrested for an OUI, you should take the following steps to effectively resolve your case.
Step 1 – Remain Silent
Do not speak to a single person about your OUI case or any related events without your attorney’s permission. According to the Miranda Warning, “anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.”
Step 2 – Hire a Skilled OUI Defense Attorney
Do not wait to hire a lawyer because that can damage your prospects. Your lawyer will have less time to study your case and prepare a strong defense. Your lawyer is the one you should speak to regarding your arrest and your charges, and therefore, you should tell them every detail of the case. The more information provided, the greater resources your lawyer will have to build your defense and fight for you in court.
Step 3 – Understand the consequences
Whether you were charged with OUI based on the results of a field sobriety test or you refused a breathalyzer test, you can face serious consequences. You should understand the consequences and keep note of any time limits you are facing.
Step 4 – Request a DMV Hearing
After your arrest, you have a limited amount of time to request a hearing (normally 10 days). Make a formal request with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) for a hearing. The purpose of the hearing is to determine whether you can get back your license.
