A Vacation You Would Rather Forget: Maine OUI Law

Did you know that Maine is known as the ‘Land of Remembered Vacations'? Most people visit this beautiful state without ever thinking about how much they would like to forget any vacation that changed the rest of their life. If you are arrested for operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, it could quickly become a vacation you would much rather forget than remember.

You do not have to have a Maine driver's license in order to be punished for operating under the influence in this state. There are a number of laws that can have an affect on the rest of your life, including consequences that can follow you to your home state or country. Some can even impact your family and friends for many years to come, and not in a positive way.

If you are arrested for OUI in Maine, it is critical to consult with a professional OUI lawyer in the state right away. The best approach to this type of case is a proactive one, and having someone on your side who understand Maine OUI law and how it affects you can make a huge difference overall. In fact, it sometimes results in charges being dropped or having some of the prosecution's most important evidence suppressed during the case's trial phase.

You do not have to fail a breathalyzer test in order to be arrested either. Whenever an officer has a reasonable belief that you are too impaired to drive, he/she can choose to arrest you based on your own actions, reactions, words, or behavioral issues. In other words, if you are driving excessively slow and fail field sobriety tests, you could be arrested.

Do not let the state of Maine become your land of lost dreams. Take a straightforward approach to the situation and find someone who can work on your behalf. Consult with a professional OUI attorney as soon as you are arrested to learn your options, and to discuss your future.

“I want to thank you for everything you have done for my family. You have gone above & beyond our expectations and you are to be commended for such a solid, compelling case. You can be assured that you won that case and every single person in the court room knows it as well. You and my son were robbed of the truth and justice. The judge knows that my son is innocent. God only knows how they live with that knowledge. I still pray for at least one of them to see how wrong this is and to do what's right. You are a great attorney and an even greater person. We have all grown to love you.”
