Rhode Island Criminal Defense Attorneys

At Sayer Regan & Thayer, LLP, with offices in Newport and Wakefield, we have more than 25 years of experience defending people against criminal charges in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts. Our criminal defense team includes a former prosecutor, so we fully understand our opponents’ positions in these cases.

Delivering The Best Possible Outcome

Our attorneys take an aggressive approach to criminal defense representation. We recognize that your future is on the line. Depending on the severity of the charges, you may be at risk of driver’s license suspension, fines or incarceration. We will investigate carefully, examining the evidence and determining the flaws in the case against you, and ensuring that your constitutional rights have not been violated. Whether through negotiation and plea bargaining or trial in front of a judge and jury, we will work hard to pursue the best possible outcome.

Defense For DUI/DWI in Rhode Island

We are experienced in defending clients against driving under the influence (DUI) charges, sometimes referred to as driving while intoxicated (DWI). Breathalyzer tests are not always accurate, and we are prepared to challenge breath test evidence as part of our DUI defense strategy. In addition to defending against drunk driving charges, we defend against related charges such as Breathalyzer test refusal, reckless driving and driving with a suspended license.

    Our lawyers defend against all criminal charges, including:

    • DUI
    • Traffic violations
    • Drug crimes
    • Possession
    • Underage possession
    • Social host
    • Domestic violence
    • Assault
    • Shoplifting and theft
    • Expungements

    We defend adults, including local college students. We also defend minors in juvenile court.
