Brockton Law

I was very cordial in the whole testing, nothing jumped out... My concern is spend the money and fight, or start my sentence save the money and move closer to work?
This is not a website were we are allowed to give legal advice and I would encourage you to be careful what you admit...
My first oui was a CWOF I'm currently fighting my second convection. I did not take the breathalyzer so I'm hoping I don't get convicted and have to deal with this. But I would like to know if I can still be a paralegal. I would like to become certified but not if I can not get a job.
Being hired as a paralegal is at the discretion of the hiring personnel at any individual law firm. There is no...
My fiancee's son was charged with his 2nd DUI two years ago. He has completed all of the mandatory programs and paid his fine. When will he be notified that his license has been reinstated? Or is there another step before this can be done? Please help! Thank you
When his license is no longer suspended, he will have to apply for reinstatement of his license with the RMV and pay...
My bf did something to make me upset, we had been drinking and I snapped and was the first aggressor. In restraining me he grabbed my throat, I lost my balance and hit my head knocking me unconscious. I attacked him again and once more he grabbed my throat. In my statement it was not revealed how I attacked him twice, I used the wrong word "choking" which got him attempted murder charges. Also, some things in the report were not true that I do not recall saying at all, incriminating him even more. These charges against him are unfair, we are both at fault and I need to fix this. What is the best route to clear this up. The prosecutor has photos, he has priors, making this a strong case, but I was out of control and am to blame as well
If there were no other witnesses, you can invoke your 5th Amendment right against incriminating yourself. The DA wont...
I was arrested for OW in Massachusetts by a state trooper . I was not driving . I was parked trying to install my FPS . I m 47 years old , 5 feet 11 " and I weight 270 . In my opinion I am overweight by over 50 pounds and the field test should have never been asked . I performed and failed . Actually , if you ask me for it right now I would fail it . During my motion hearing , I feel my attorney failed to insist on the matter that I was over 50 LBS overweight . Should I consider to ask my attorney to request that the judge amend the fact that I was overweight ? It is true that we have not yet received judge's decision . . . but should we act before judge's decision ? Can my attorney request for another motion hearing ? ? ? or amend anything ? Thank
You did not specify what the motion was for, but I am sure your weight was not relevant.
are there differences in degree or consequence or is it just a difference in terminology?
Just a difference in terminology. In Massachusetts, there is no such thing as DUI (Driving Under the Influence), In...
I moved from MA 5 years ago to another state and turned in MA DL to get converted license. Received 1st DUI in new state earlier this year. Case resolved, and will be able to re-instate full license next year. Just received letter from MA DMV at old address there that my MA license is going to be revoked. (I had no idea MA DL was still active/valid). Once I move back to MA with a full out-of-state license, will MA cause me to go through all the DUI steps necessary as if I received the DUI in MA, since MA license was active at the time? (MA RMV website seems to indicate this). The letter from MA RMV says I will need to go to hearing, and bring "court abstract" from other state. What is going on?
You will need to go to the Massachusetts RMV and meet with a Hearings Officer. If you had forfeited your Massachusetts...
