How does an RMV hearing work?
RMV hearings are special administrative hearings conducted by the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles that seek to determine whether an individual's drivers' license should be suspended or revoked in light of a recent conviction or charge. There are a variety of different charges that may result in an RMV hearing such as serious traffic offenses,
drug crimes or
OUI-DWI defense. Many drivers are not even aware that RMV hearings exist, however, and can find this quite surprising in the face of a recent arrest. An experienced
Salem criminal defense attorney who understands the process can provide invaluable guidance and insight throughout your hearing.

Perhaps the most important thing to know about RMV hearings is that they do not follow the same guidelines as a criminal trial that often precedes the hearing. RMV hearings consider documentation related to the offense itself and consider other factors before making a decision. These decisions are not made by a jury, and are instead decided by a panel. Potential consequences of an RMV hearing include license suspension and revocation, although a skilled attorney may be able to negotiate for certain exceptions.
Why Choose Us?
There are serious advantages to having a lawyer who has former prosecution experience on your side. I have been in the courtroom and sat in the prosecution's shoes and I know their strategies first hand. No one has a better understanding of both sides of the criminal justice system.
Not only that, but I also have former police officer experience. I have been out there making arrests and my background knowledge of evidence and arrest procedure could mean the difference between a conviction and a case dismissal. I have been in the arresting officer's shoes, I have sat in the prosecution's place and I have over 12 years of criminal defense experience. This cycle comes full circle. I know everything there is to know regarding criminal offenses and I can put my knowledge and past experience to work for you!
