Being charged with a DUI/DWI/OUI is frightening. Often it is a person's first encounter with the criminal justice system. At Aprodu | Conley, we will be with you every step of the way from an initial arrest, and all the way up to trial if necessary.
Operating under the influence of alcohol, known as OUI in Massachusetts, and DUI, and DWI in other states, is a serious criminal charge. Aprodu | Conley understands the fear a person has after an OUI arrest, and knows what it takes to navigate a person through this charge from arrest to trial, and beyond. The criminal justice system often requires a number of court appearances, motions to suppress evidence, and extensive preparation to determine what your best options are as an individual. An experienced attorney in this area can be instrumental in guiding someone through this process. The seriousness of an OUI charge can vary based on past OUI offenses, or other factors. Often people charged with OUIs are also charged with other criminal motor vehicle offenses at the same time. Contact Aprodu | Conley today for a free consultation if you have been charged with any OUI or other criminal offense.
A criminal record can have severe consequences to employment, volunteering, and personal relationships. There are options that may be available to hide or remove a criminal record. Aprodu | Conley can help to navigate these options for our clients.
Once a person is arraigned on a criminal offense, a permanent record is created. In Massachusetts there are a number of factors that could make this permanent record available to employers or other third parties. This record is often referred to as a persons "CORI." The attorneys at Aprodu | Conley have extensive knowledge of the options related to hiding or removing a person's record of convictions or non-convictions. Depending on the age and kind of criminal record, sealing a record may be an option to prevent certain parties from having access to that record. Sealing can be done either through the Commissioner of Probation or by a judge at the Court where the crime was charged. Which option makes the most sense for you depends on a number of factors. Our lawyers know these factors and can address what would be required for you to seal your record. For a narrower set of criminal records, it may be possible to entirely remove, or expunge your record. Generally for expungement to be possible the offense must have been committed when a person was young, and the charges must have been comparably minor. However, there are other circumstances where expungement could be possible. Finally, if sealing or expungement are not an option for you, There are other post-conviction remedies that may be available, including motions to vacate a plea or a motions for new trial. Talk to an experienced lawyer today to learn more about what your options may be, and to get help in attaining your desired results regarding your existing record.
Our philosophy as a firm and as individual lawyers is to always be client-focused ad results-oriented. What this means is that we see our primary job as being meeting the needs of our clients. We strive to give our clients the full range of legal options applicable to their case, but not taking away our client's ability to make their own decisions regarding their representation. As a firm, we understand that it is our client's who have their liberty or money at stake and will not stand in the way of our client's goals. Once a client's goal is understood, our attorneys know the system, and will make every effort to achieve our client's desired goal. This philosophy applies to the needs of all our clients. We understand that if a client is charged with a crime or an OUI offense, that individuals needs may vary given their circumstances. Clients who have been injured in an accident, or terminated by an employer will also have varying needs. We always offer a free consultation where we can discuss the individual needs of each one of our prospective clients. At Aprodu | Conley, you as a client will always be the most important factor in your case, and as such we will always keep you informed regarding your case, and do whatever we can do to get you the results you want.
Yes. No one cares about their business or personal needs more than the client. That is why in many situations clients will prepare business or personal documents using prior templates or using layman's terms. Our job in those situations is to review, analyze and make sure that the drafted documents meet and advance not only the client's present needs, but future needs. In some situations certain "magic language" is required to further a client's purpose or to satisfy legal requirements, which is why it is important to have an attorney review any legal document drafted by a non-lawyer. In many of these cases, the review is very quick and very cost-effective, especially given the potential consequences of moving forward with a defective document. At Aprodu | Conley we appreciate and engage with clients who choose to be involved in the legal representation and work with them to make sure their needs are met in a cost-effective and efficient manner.
