Massachusetts Criminal Defense Lawyer Lefteris K. Travayiakis has a wealth of experience defending persons charged with a wide variety of criminal offenses in Massachusetts, including drunk driving charges such as OUI/DUI, Leaving the Scene of an Accident, and Vehicular Homicide.  He has vast trial experience, having successfully persons charged with simple misdemeanors, such as assault & battery, to major felony crimes, including rape and murder.  He has appeared in and obtained acquittals in the district and superior courts all over the Commonwealth of Massachusetts; and has also handled appeals and post-conviction matter before the Massachusetts Appeals Court and Supreme Judicial Court.

His practice is focused exclusively on criminal defense of major felony crimes, including homicide / murder and related crimes of violence; rape and other sex crimes; gun crimes; drug crimes; as well as OUI / DUI.

Being charged with drunk driving can be scary. In fact, most people charged with drunk driving are first offenders who are not familiar with the OUI/DUI laws, and overwhelming do not know their rights when they are pulled over for suspected drunk driving. For example, it is not commonly known that you may refuse to submit to field sobriety tests and even a breathalyzer test. Additionally, whether a person chooses to submit to a breathalyzer test or not can have long term and devastating effects on your license and may even affect the strength of your defense in your case.

In Massachusetts, the "presumptive" legal limit for an alcohol breath test is 0.08%, which is considered low. Although this varies from person to person, it is generally believed that even one beer within an hour can cause you to fail a breath test.  Notably, if you refuse a breath test, your refusal cannot be introduced by the prosecutor and used against you at trial.

It does not necessarily mean that persons who submit to and fail field sobriety tests and breath tests do not have a chance of beating their case. There are a wide variety of facts and circumstances that are also relevant, and there could be a wide variety of reasons to offer in your defense to a jury.

Attorney Travayiakis has the reputation as an aggressive and meticulously prepared advocate who fights for his clients innocence at every stage of the criminal proceedings. In addition to his successes in obtaining acquittals for his client at trial, he also has a strong record of success in the pre-trial stages of a case: from litigating pre-trial motions to suppress resulting in the exclusion of evidence, reduction of charges, and even dismissal of the charges altogether. In many instances, cases can won or favorably disposed of by smart and aggressive pre-trial motions. In those cases where there may not be any opportunity to litigate such pre-trial motions, Attorney Travayiakis has a well-earned record of acquittal at trial, even in those cases where the prospect of an acquittal seemed unrealistic.
