K.B.
Mr. Bly and his team (particularly Laura and Nathan) were extremely helpful to our family during a very trying time.  I would totally and highly recommend them if you are facing an OUI in Maine.  My son was arrested for an OUI (suspected marijuana) in Orono while enrolled at U Maine.  Mr. Bly was super honest up front with our options and he was willing to do a payment plan to meet the set fee... When we finally made it to court--I was impressed with Mr. Blys performance, knowledge and dedication to understanding our case, the law and all its nuances.  In the end, we won the case and my son was found NOT GUILTY.
S.B.
Mr Bly and his team worked very hard on my case. Allways giving me a answer to my questions and returning my calls right away. I would highly recommend Bill and his team for OUI and OAS charges, he kept me out of jail and the overall outcome was the best I could of hoped for. This has been a very difficult time in my life and I’ve learned a lot about the consequences of a OUI thru Bill and his legal team.
