Taunton Massachusetts DUI Drunk Driving Defense Lawyer

If you have been arrested for a DUI it is important that you hire an experienced and proven DUI Defense Attorney. A conviction for Drunk Driving can have a life altering impact and may affect your future job prospects, current employment or educational opportunities. Although the penalties for a conviction range from community service to time in jail it is important for you to realize that being arrested for DUI/OUI is not the same thing as being convicted of DUI/OUI. Hiring a DUI/OUI Defense Attorney with years of legal experience will have the greatest impact on the outcome of your case.

My name is Attorney Gerald J Noonan and I am the owner of The Law Offices of Gerald J Noonan in Taunton Massachusetts. I have dedicated my life to the practice of law. As a prosecutor in the Plymouth County District Attorney’s office and a private criminal defense attorney I have over 30 years of legal and trial experience. I understand the stress and anxiety a client feels when facing a drunk driving charge. Good people are charged with DUI and Drunk Driving related charges everyday in Massachusetts. Massachusetts however has some of the strictest DUI penalties in the nation. Locking you up in jail or suspending your license can have a serious impact on your life and the lives of your spouse and family. My clients are faced with these concerns and I do everything I can to make sure these fears don’t become a reality.

I have successfully tried more than 350 Criminal Cases over the course of my thirty-year legal career. Call me today at my office in Taunton Massachusetts to setup a free consultation and we can discuss how taking my experience into the courtroom with you can benefit your case.

Taunton Injury Lawyer

Attorney Gerald J Noonan opened The Law Offices of Gerald J Noonan after serving as a Prosecutor in the Plymouth County District Attorney’s office for several years. Throughout his career as a prosecutor, Attorney Noonan tried hundreds of jury trials dealing with serious felony offenses like murder, arson, rape, armed robbery.

Trial experience is one of the most important things you should consider when deciding on an attorney. Insurance companies usually know which attorneys are ready for trial and capable of putting on a strong case in front of a jury. If an insurance company knows they are dealing with an attorney that is not afraid to go to trial then they are usually more inclined to settle a case on fair terms in an attempt to avoid costly litigation. An insurance company that is dealing with an attorney that doesn’t have trial experience might drag their feet or make lowball offers because they know that trial isn’t an option for this attorney. In these scenarios the insurance company has the upper hand and most cases are settled on the insurance company’s terms. Attorney Noonan has won over 350 trials. When you bring this experience to the negotiation table the insurance companies take notice.

Overview

Do You Need a Lawyer?

Every state has some sort of "drunk driving" statute. The term "drunk driving" is in quotes because none of these laws require that you be "drunk" or "intoxicated" to be guilty. All that is required is that your ability to operate a vehicle has been impaired to any extent at all or that your Blood alcohol level exceeds the state limit (which is now .08% in all states). Some states call it DWI (Driving While Intoxicated), but it refers to the same offense. The consequences of differ drastically from state to state and are influenced by your age, blood alcohol limit (BAC), whether you have been arrested for in the past, and whether you caused injury or death during the .

A Lawyer can help...

Assess your legal situation

An experienced Defense lawyer can help you understand what you are up against and the fines you may be required to pay. A lawyer mostly deals with matters and knows the process inside and out – including options that a public defender may not tell you.

Explain the consequences

The consequences of a vary greatly from state to state and a lawyer will be able to explain how those consequences in your state apply to you such as (1) harsher punishments for those arrested with BAC limits over .08, (2) special laws for underage drivers arrested for , (3) possible community service or plea bargaining, (4) overlapping jurisdiction of Courts and your state's motor vehicle licensing department to suspend or revoke your license, and (5) contingent license programs that allow you to use your vehicle to get to and from work.

Manage the process

Dealing with the motor vehicle department can be frustrating and time consuming. A Lawyer can manage the process for you by completing the required forms; making phone calls; scheduling and/or representing you at a Motor Vehicle Department suspension hearing, and making other necessary arrangements.

Represent you in court

An experienced Lawyer knows the ins and outs of the courtroom and may be able to obtain a lesser sentence for you if your situation and state law allows for it.

Don't know if a Lawyer is right for you? Here are some general guidelines:

Definitely

Definitely hire a Lawyer if you already have several 's and receive another; or if your arrest was the result of an accident or if anyone was injured; or if you are a professional driver whose livelihood depends on keeping your license.

Probably

Seriously consider hiring a Lawyer if you've been arrested for a second (in the same or another state) or were arrested with a BAC limit over double the legal limit as harsher penalties may apply.

Maybe

You might want to hire a Lawyer if you don't understand your rights or laws, what you need to do, or the consequences you face. You also might want legal representation if you are in a profession (or plan to be) that requires bonding or in which any criminal conviction might prevent you from getting or keeping a professional license. If you don't know the requirements, then you need expert advice before handling the case yourself.
