Drunk Driving

If you have been arrested for drunk driving you have rights. A charge of Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol (DUI) is a serious matter with potentially serious penalties. DUI penalties regularly include an immediate loss of license, fines, outpatient or in-patient treatment programs and, in repeated DUI cases, jail time. An individual charged with DUI may feel stressed, embarrassed and scared. Attorney Mucci, a knowledgeable and experienced DUI attorney, can assist you through every step of the often-perplexing criminal process. He will work tirelessly for you to achieve the most favorable outcome possible.

Former Assistant District Attorney Turned DUI Defense Attorney Ready To Defend You

As a former assistant district attorney, Attorney Mucci prosecuted a countless number of individuals charged with DUI. He understands the tests and procedures law enforcement uses to investigate DUIs. He is skilled at analyzing a DUI police report and separating out the typical jargon from the facts that may materially decide an individual's innocence or guilt in the minds of a jury. This allows Attorney Mucci to give clients a candid evaluation of their case that allows clients to make informed decisions whether to resolve their charge prior to trial or proceed to a trial.

Often, DUI police reports look and read the same. Virtually, every person stopped for suspicion of DUI has blood-shot eyes, slurred speech and smells of alcohol. Police officers customarily request individuals to perform subjective balancing tests in tough surroundings (e.g., late at night, on the side of road, in darkness and in inclement weather). Police officers use these field sobriety tests to evaluate an individual's sobriety and decide whether to make an arrest. As an assistant district attorney, Attorney Mucci was trained on police DUI detection procedures, including the use of a Breathalyzer. He understands each test and the effects it may have in the minds of a jury. He also knows the weaknesses of these sobriety tests and can tell when police officers make mistakes or do not fairly administer or judge these tests. Using this specialized knowledge, Attorney Mucci can educate his clients and build a defense that a judge or jury can understand.

If you are charged with a DUI subsequent offense, Attorney Mucci has the knowledge and experience to review your criminal history and evaluate whether the matter is truly a subsequent offense. Attorney Mucci may employ a variety of strategies in defense of a subsequent offense, including challenging prior convictions. A third-offense DUI is a felony in Massachusetts, with a minimum mandatory jail sentence, and a second offense requires an individual to attend a (14) fourteen-day inpatient rehabilitation program; therefore, with your liberty at stake, it is important to have an attorney like Attorney Mucci fighting for you.
Simply because you are charged with DUI and a police officer accuses you of drunk driving does not mean your case is hopeless. By retaining Attorney Mucci, an experienced DUI attorney, you will learn you have options, rights and defenses.
