H. Ernest Stone, Attorney PC
Being accused is traumatic. Let’s get to work defending you.
- Essex County
“Drunk Driving.” It sounds awful. It feels awful. It’s embarrassing. And it’s traumatic. You were pulled over, humiliated on the side of the road, and arrested. You wonder who saw you. You worry about who will find out, how the arrest will affect your work, what your family and friends will think. If it will cost you your job. If you will get suspended or kicked out of school. In Massachusetts the courts call it “Operating Under the Influence.” Most of the people charged with Operating Under the Influence in Massachusetts have never been arrested before, never even set foot in a police station or courtroom before. And most never will again. The whole experience is foreign and can be frightening. Even the language used by the police, lawyers, judges and others you have to interact with is strange.
