Operating with a Suspended License from OUI (OAS for OUI)

Massachusetts OUI Suspension Lawyer

Boston DUI License Attorney

In Massachusetts, if you are operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license, and the reason for that suspended license is an OUI charge, then you are facing mandatory jail time. The judge does not have discretion in such a case- if convicted, you face a mandatory minimum 60 days in jail, up to 2 1/2 years in jail, with a mandatory additional 1 year license loss.

In our experience, it is not uncommon to be improperly charged with this offense. For example, if your license was originally suspended for operating under the influence and simply failed to pay the reinstatement fee; or if your license was suspended due to a breath test refusal and the court-ordered suspension specific to the OUI had not officially started yet, then you may be able to have the charge amended to simple "Operating with a Suspended License", which does not mandate jail time. A thorough review of your RMV history, criminal record, and the circumstances of your arrest is necessary for your attorney to best handle your particular case.

If you have been charged with operating with a suspended license from OUI, then you should contact our office immediately:

Client Reviews
"Ben Urbelis recently represented me in an OUI case in which I had crashed my car. I honestly did not believe I had any chance of beating it, but fortunately for me Ben was outstanding and all charges were dropped. In my first hearing he was calm, assertive and straight to the point. I was extremely impressed and satisfied. I left my hearing feeling confident that I had made the right choice of hiring him. I am positive I would have lost this case and walked away with an OUI if I hadn't. I am very happy with how he handled my case and how reassured I felt having him as my lawyer." MC
"When I found myself charged with my 3rd DUI I was certain without a doubt that I was facing 6 months to 2 1/2 years in state prison. I can’t believe you were able to guide me calmly through the whole nerve wracking process, never sugar coating anything, staying honest and always keeping me informed the whole time. I still can’t believe that in the end you pulled off a miracle to avoidany jail time. I would recommend you to anyone in the same situation. Thank you so much. You saved me.” JL
