1ST OFFENSE WINS:

Ms. A.;     617.233.6256 7.27.18; BRIGHTON-BOSTON
1ST OFFENSE DISMISSED

My client ran a red light, had slurred speech, was unsteady on her feet, admitted to drinking, and failed all the field sobriety tests. I scheduled a motion to suppress hearing but the DA failed to summons the arresting trooper. When the case was called, I made a motion to dismiss for failure to prosecute. The judge dismissed the OUI charge. No conviction, no license loss, no probation. no 16 weeks of alcohol classes and saved her about $3000 in various court fees.

'JOE IS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE, PROFESSIONAL AND RESPONSIVE.'
 
LINDA;     617.538.8271 6.19.18; WOBURN
ACCIDENT, 1ST OFFENSE, NOT GUILTY

Client drove completely across the road and struck a fire hydrant. Sergeant testified she was unsteady on her feet, admitted to "a few glasses of wine," had a strong odor of alcohol and in his opinion was "intoxicated." I stressed there was no slurred speech, no red, glassy or bloodshot eyes and that anyone would be unsteady after an accident. I also obtained the EMT records which did not even mention an odor of alcohol. Point: reasonable doubt.

'JOE WAS ENCOURAGING, THOROUGH
AND
UNBELIEVABLY WELL-PREPARED.'
 
ELIJAH;     978.490.0514 5.8.18; IPSWICH-NEWBURYPORT
FAILED BREATH TEST
JOE USED BODY CAM FOOTAGE
NOT GUILTY 1ST OFFENSE

I crossed over the centerline and cop stopped me. I admitted to drinking and smoking marijuana and they found a pipe and pot in the center console. Two cops testified I failed all the field tests. Joe made sure to preserve the body cam footage. It showed both cops were wearing heavy winter clothing, hats and gloves and I had on only a sweat shirt and no gloves in freezing weather. Plus it showed i didn't do as bad on the tests as they said. 

Joe was very patient with our questions and answered them all.

JOE IS VERY CONFIDENT
AND A GREAT PUBLIC SPEAKER
 
JOSH;      978.761.4923 4.26.18; AYER
FAILED BREATH TEST (.12)
NOT GUILTY AT TRIAL- 1ST OFFENSE

I couldn't be happier with what attorneys Waldbaum and Dunn did for me. The cop caught me throwing up outside my car and I figured I was dead to rights. But they fought hard for me from day one. At trial, attorney Dunn proved the cops testimony was different from his report. After he showed the booking video, I was found not guilty. This saved my job and whole career. It even saved my relationships with my family. I can't thank them enough.

'THEY SAVED MY CAREER
AND RELATIONSHIPS WITH MY FAMILY'
 
MICHAEL;     779.456.1777 1.25.18; QUINCY
NOT GUILTY 1ST OFFENSE
LICENSE RESTORED SAME DAY

Client drove over a 12 inch curb and did not stop when police flashed their lights at him. He acclerated to 50 mph with a flat tire. Cop testifed he was unsteady on his feet, had an odor of alcohol and his speech was thick and slurred. We immediately filed a motion to preserve the booking video.  At trial, attorney Dunn played the video showing him standing normally and speaking normally and argued there was a "disconnect" between the police report and the video. The judge agreed, acquitted him and restored his license immediately.

FAILED BREATH TEST (.12), FIELD TESTS
NOT GUILTY - 1ST OFFENSE

"Attorney Dunn was thoroughly professional from start to finish. I was worried about how it would turn out but he put me at ease. He did a great job at jury trial and dramatically caught the trooper in not just one but two lies. The jury didn't like that at all!  They found me not guilty of OUI and not guilty of reckless driving. I couldn't recommend them more highly. Feel free to call me if you are thinking about hiring the firm."

"ATTORNEY DUNN KEPT ME AT EASE THROUGHOUT.
I COULDN'T ASK FOR A BETTER RESULT"
 
GREG:     401.573.0052 LOWELL
ACCIDENT
NOT GUILTY 1ST OFFENSE
'AT TRIAL, HE WAS VERY ARTICULATE & CAPTIVATED THE JURY'

Two detectives came upon Greg having fallen off his motorcycle. A third officer arrived. They all concluded he was under the influence and arrested him for OUI. They reported an odor of alcohol, glassy, bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and unsteadiness on his feet.  

"Joe was attentive and answered all my questions. He paid attention to the smallest details. He fought hard to get a copy of my booking video which basically got me acquitted. He even convinced one of the toughest judges in the state to restore my license immediately. I was told she never does that."

See judge's order restoring license.

JASMINE:     781.363.1073 BROCKTON
NOT GUILTY - 1ST OFFENSE

Officer testified she had a strong odor of alcohol, bloodshot, glassy eyes and slurred speech. He made her get out of the car to do four field sobriety tests. He then gave her a portable roadside breath test which measured 0.99 and arrested her. I argued at trial that there was reasonable doubt:  she had two bad knees, passed the alphabet test and was a woman alone doing balancing tests by the side of the highway at 2:30 am. The judge agreed. Not guilty.

CHRIS;     937.477.5962 TAUNTON
1ST OFFENSE - ROAD BLOCK;
NOT GUILTY BOTH CHARGES

Client was stopped at a sobriety checkpoint on May 6. He admitted to two officers that he had a "few drinks" just a short while ago. Then he stumbled back against his car when asked to stand wth one foot in front of the other during the nine step walk and turn test. Two troopers testified at trial that they thought he was under the influence of alcohol. The prosecutor tried extremely hard to convict him but the judge sustained all my objections to the DA's line of questioning, found my client not guilty of both criminal charges and restored his license immediately the same day of trial.

OPEN CONTAINER CHARGE THROWN OUT

My son was arrested for 5 charges. I never needed an atty. or faced such a devastating situation but knew from the first conversation Joe was the right guy.  During the process I had many questions and whenever I contacted him he got right back to me even on the weekends. He got the open alcohol container charge thrown out and then got not guiltys on both criminal charges at trial. It was the best outcome I could have hoped for. He also got my son's right to drive restored right after trial despite a six month refusal suspension. Now he can drive again and help with my wife who is sick.

HE'S A REALLY NICE GUY TOO'

Mr. W.;     508.282.6514 WESTBORO
FAILED BREATH TEST AND FIELD TESTS:
NOT GUILTY AT TRIAL OUI 1ST OFFENSE

Client failed the one leg stand and walk and turn test badly, was arrested and failed the breath test at the station and lost his license. I argued he pulled over properly, was able to produce his license and registration, exit the car and walk to testing area with no issues in perfectly normal manner. Also that the breath test was done one hour and six minutes after the stop and showed his alcohol level was still rising and thus arguably below the legal limit at the time of driving as required by law to be guilty.  

Judge agreed and acquitted him.

 
ALEX;     516 582 8320 E. HAMPSHIRE - BELCHERTOWN
FAILED BREATH TEST THROWN OUT
1ST OFFENSE UNDER 21 OUI CHARGE DISMISSED

I failed the Breathalyzer at the station registering over limit.  After studying the booking video, Joe ascertained that the breath test was not performed in accordance with the strict regulations required for it to be admissible.  He drafted a Motion to suppress that evidence.  After a four hour Hearing, the judge requested written briefs on the issue and ruled in our favor six weeks later.   On the day of jury trial, the DA said he did not have enough evidence to go forward and dismissed my case.

See judge's order suppressing breath test and DA's motion dismissing OUI.

Mr. S.:     617 319 6407 MALDEN - ROAD BLOCK
FAILED BREATH TEST AND 2 OF 3 FIELD TESTS
NOT GUILTY 1ST OFFENSE

At the road block, I admitted to  the Trooper I had been drinking and smoked pot. He arrested me after the field tests and then I registered over limit on the breath tests too. Joe was always professional and courteous and his communication with me was excellent.  He kept me up to date with detailed written reports and explained all my options. As a result, I decided to fight. At my drunk driving Trial, he did an excellent job cross examining the Trooper –who was no slouch and trains all the other Troopers.

 
PETER:    617 880 9060 SOMERVILLE
"MY WIFE SAID JOE COULDN'T WIN IT.
BOY, WAS SHE WRONG!"
NOT GUILTY 1ST OFFENSE

Trooper saw me commit multiple lanes violations and blow through a Yield sign without slowing down. Then he testified I had slurred speech and had difficulty getting my registration out of the glove box, was unsteady on my feet exiting the car and had an ‘overwhelming odor of alcohol’ on my breath. After seeing the Police Report, my wife didn't think he could win it but Joe told me to try the case anyway. He was reassuring at all times and both amazing and incredible at Trial.

I got my license ordered restored the same day the Judge found me Not Guilty
