Why Hire The Law Office of Matthew L. LaMountain?



As a practicing attorney and former State DUI prosecutor, I have handled thousands of DUI’s and Breathalyzer Refusal cases. As an experienced Rhode Island DUI and Refusal attorney, I will review your case to look for any oversights by the arresting department due to the technical nature of these cases. I will look for other evidence that will help defend your rights. I will meet with you and thoroughly go over the evidence the police have against you. We will discuss our strategies and formulate a plan to attack these charges. I will use this information to advocate on your behalf for a dismissal or reduced charge.


I have seen all the issues before and know how to defend your rights. Just because you were arrested for a DUI does not mean you are Guilty. DUIs and Refusals are very technical crimes because of the many constitutional and statutory rights that are provided to a defendant.Remember an Arrest does not mean that you will be convicted. I have beaten many DUI and Refusal cases and look forward to helping you through this troubling time.

Matthew L. LaMountain, an experienced Rhode Island DUI Defense Attorney will review the facts of your case and will carefully review the statutory, regulatory and case law in order to find areas where mistakes were made.  For example, if the police failed to read you your Miranda rights or lacked probable cause to stop your motor vehicle or failed to follow the Department of Health Regulatory Procedures.


I have been handling criminal cases since 2011. That is over 10 years of experience that will be defending your rights. I have handled numerous high profile criminal cases that have established significant case law in Rhode Island. I can spot legal issues in your case and effectively argue them them to the judge. Having the ability to effectively challenge the legality the evidence that is to be used against you at trial is an important step in protecting your rights.

Michael and his staff are simply the best. I was trying to settle my mother-in-law's final expenses which included a penalty with the IRS. They quickly and efficiently dealt with it for me. Michael also responded to my initial email on the weekend encouraging me to come in and see him early the next week. Thank you doesn't seem like enough for me to say!

I went to Matt in a major time of crisis for me not really knowing at all how the process works or what was in store. He was clear from the beginning on what all our options were, what the next steps were to take, and how to navigate the process. Dealing with a bit of a language barrier was generally not an issue as everything was explained to us very clearly. He is very knowledgeable about both sides of the law as he previously was a prosecutor; he has excellent connections in the system. We retained Matt for a very doable price, and he got us the absolute best possible outcome in the case - complete dismissal. Overall our situation was rather complex and Matt did fantastic work for us, we could not be more satisfied with the results. I would highly recommend anyone in need of criminal defense to call him first.
