Attorney William T. Bly
An accusation of drunk driving in Maine is no small matter. There are serious penalties, even for a first offense, that include a hefty fine, lengthy license suspension, and possibly even jail time. These can have repercussions lasting long after you're done with the court mandated penalties, and can impact your life for years.
There are, however, ways to challenge the accusations and defend your liberty and interests. None of the evidence that the prosecutor will present to convict you is perfect. All of it can be challenged in a court of law. All that it takes is to raise a reasonable doubt in the mind of the jury, and you'll be acquitted of all charges.
Attorney William T. Bly is a professional at raising reasonable doubts. An OUI-defense specialist, he knows where the weaknesses are in a prosecutor's case immediately, and understands how to exploit them to the best results. He has a proven track record as an OUI attorney in Maine, with countless acquittals. Even if the evidence against you is overwhelming, William T. Bly understands how best to protect what's most important to you, and will fight relentlessly to shield what you value the most.
