Top Mistakes People Make After Their OUI Arrest

If you or someone you know was arrested for operating a motor vehicle under the influence (OUI) of alcohol, it is important to protect your rights, your freedom, and your future by avoiding these mistakes. Many people hurt their chance of obtaining a positive outcome to their case by making these types of avoidable errors. By reading this article, you can learn how to approach your case in order to protect your rights as much as possible at this time.

As a Salem OUI defense lawyer, I regularly protect clients accused of drunk driving in both their court cases and in driver's license suspension or revocation hearings with the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV). Because of this experience, I am aware of the mistakes clients sometimes make that inhibit their chance of a positive result.

These are some of the top mistakes to avoid after an OUI arrest:

  • Don't ignore the charges. Too many people think that drunk driving charges are "no big deal," but nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, these charges have the potentially to seriously impact your life from many different angles. You could lose your license and even go to jail. Talk to a lawyer and protect yourself legally right away.
  • Don't talk about your case or post about it on social media. Doing so could hurt your case. Refrain from talking about the arrest with anyone other than your defense attorney.
  • Don't try to represent yourself. These cases are complex and the stakes are high. Protect your future by putting your case in the hands of an experienced and dedicated professional with a track record of success and positive OUI case outcomes.
  • Don't drive with a suspended driver's license. This could make your situation much worse and might end with you in jail.
