I hired Bill Bly after I was charged with an OUI with a BAC of 0.14; I am very pleased with my decision to work with Bill. Through out the process Bill was always easily accessible and quick to answer all my many questions/concerns. This was the first time I have ever been in trouble with the law and it was a very scary process, Bill made it as painless as possible. Bill was able to get me a plea deal and drop my charge to driving to endanger! With my plea deal I will not have a OUI on my record and will not have to deal with the heavy fines and insurance increases that go along with it! Obviously I never want to go through this experience again, but Bill was a great choice, if anyone is looking for an OUI lawyer in Maine, I would definitely recommend hiring Attorney Bly. He is great to work with and most importantly he gets his clients great results!

Unfortunately about 5 months ago I was arrested for an OUI. This was my first time ever being involved with the law and at first had no idea where to turn. I had a chance about 2 days after my incident to meet and talk with Attorney Bly who was able to provide me all the steps involved in my case. After talking with him I felt very confident that he would be able to handle my case and help me through the entire court process. After my DMV hearing I was informed by Attorney Bly that he got my driving privlages back and that I would not face any suspension regarding the DMV portion of my case. After a couple more stressful months of waiting on the court process to continue and wondering what was going to happen he was able to strike a deal with DA without my case even going to trial. The deal presented to me was better than I was expecting and there was no way I could turn it down. These last 5 months have been very stressful on myself and my family and my confidence in Attorney Bly handling my OUI case showed in his ability to work well with the courts, giving me all the information I needed and making sure I knew every step of the process. Attorney Bly was always available for any questions I had, he worked hard and has a very dedicated and professional staff at his office. If you are looking for a great attorney I would highly recommend Attorney Bly to handle your case!

I was charged with motor vehicle speeding and found Attorney Bly on the internet a couple of days before I had to appear in court. He was excellent!! I am now free of any charges. I pleaded guilty & in the end the DA removed charges if no traffic violations for 1 year and completed driver defense training and paif a fine.
