Boston DUI Defense Attorney Representing First-Time Offenders
It is important to understand Massachusetts law with regard to driving under the influence if you are a first-time offender. In our state, you can be charged with operating under the influence, or OUI (also known as DUI), if you are at least 21 and you register at .08 percent or higher when tested for your blood alcohol concentration (BAC).
Whatever your age, the stakes are high and the penalties tough, even for a first-time DUI. Having someone in your corner can make the process smoother and improve the likelihood of a positive outcome. At the Massachusetts Criminal Defense Group, we help drivers of any age charged with a first-time OUI. Our defense attorneys know what to do.

How An Attorney Can Help A First-Time Offender
With the right defense lawyer, you should be able to qualify for alternative disposition as a first-time offender. Our lawyers fight to get first-time offenders into programs that allow them to leave the legal process with no criminal record if they meet the court's requirements, such as completing alcohol education class and probation. This program, known as the 24-D program, also provides you with the chance to get a hardship license more quickly, rather than having to wait the usual three months.
It is important to have a lawyer to help you with the 24-D program, because otherwise you will probably have a DUI conviction on your record. If this occurs and you ever get another DUI, you will be treated as a repeat offender, and the penalties will be much more severe. Don't risk it — call our DUI defense lawyers.
