Braintree, MA (PRWEB) June 11, 2012
The Law Offices of Russell J Matson, PC has helped more drivers than any other Massachusetts law firm get DUI license suspensions reduced, as allowed under a recent court ruling.
Since the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruling Souza v. Registrar of Motor Vehicles (SJC-11123) on 5/17/12, their office has successfully filed more Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles appeals on behalf of its clients than any other law firm. The Souza decision resulted in a change in how the RMV is allowed to interpret license suspension durations in certain situations of multiple offense DUI convictions. The court ruled that the RMV was suspending licenses in some specific circumstances (2nd offense, breath test refusal, Prior offense Continued) for a longer duration than the law properly allowed.
“My team has worked extremely hard responding to this decision, digging through hundreds of old case files to find past clients who are now eligible for relief,” said Attorney Russell Matson. “In addition, we’ve been fielding dozens of phone calls from our past clients and other individuals who want to know if this decision affects them, and if we can help restore their driver’s licenses.”
Since it is likely that the court ruling will soon be obsolete if the legislature amends the wording in the statute that allowed the RMVs previous license suspension practices, it has been necessary for those affected to act as quickly as possible.
“It is immensely gratifying when I can call a past client out of the blue and let them know their license is restored thanks to our efforts on their behalf,” he continued. “Going the extra mile for clients is one of the cornerstones of my practice. And I never forget that our DUI clients are good people who either made a mistake, or are getting screwed by the system. And as defense lawyers, we are usually the only advocate for their interests”.
