Dave T* was involved in a serious car accident in Worcester County in August, 2018. Multiple vehicles were involved in the accident that occured just five minutes from Dave’s residence.

According to the police who responded to the accident Dave was unsteady on his feet, had blood shot eyes, slurred his speech and had an odor of alcohol coming from his person. Due to the crash the police requested that Dave seek medical treatment at the local hospital. Following the accident the police sent a request to the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles to have Dave’s license suspended as an Immediate Threat.

Just days after the accident Dave received notice that the Registry had suspended his license indefinitely as an Immediate Threat. Attorney Gilman working with Dave was able to get his license reinstated in just weeks even while the criminal charges were pending for a show cause hearing.

Weeks after Dave had his license reinstated, he received a notice for a Clerk Magistrate’s Hearing the Gardner District Court. If Dave lost the Show Cause Hearing and the criminal complaint issued he was facing a further license suspension and at least another $500.00 in fees by the Registry.

Attorney Gilman at the Show Cause Hearing provided sufficient evidence to convenience to Clerk Magistrate to not issue the Criminal Complaint! Even though there was probable cause for the complaint to go forward, the Clerk Magistrate agreed with Attorney Gilman’s argument and decided against issuing the complaint.

Today, Dave faces no further license suspensions or Registry fines and can continue working without worrying that his license will be suspended again.
