2ND OFFENSE WINS

DARIN;     774-232-4990
WESTBORO
NOT GUILTY
2nd OFFENSE. FAILED FIELD SOBRIETY TESTS.


"Joe is quick, smart, and fast. The way he speaks just blows you away.  He made all the right decisions and got 2 very incriminating statements I made thrown out at a pretrial motion. That enabled us to get a not guilty verdict despite the cop's testimony that I failed all the field sobriety tests. Good thing, too, my wife was 4 months pregnant and I kept my job.  I highly recommend him."

3 TIMES LIMIT FAILED BREATH TEST THROWN OUT
NOT GUILTY 2ND OFFENSE​

"I don’t know how Joe did it but at a motion to suppress evidence, he got my.22 breath test thrown out of court. That gave us a fighting chance at trial. During his cross exam, he made the cop admit to a long laundry list of everything I had done right, instead of what I did wrong."

'AFTER JOE'S CLOSING ARGUMENT,
EVEN I WOULD HAVE VOTED NOT GUILTY."

BAD ACCIDENT, HIT POLE,
KNOCKED OUT POWER TO AREA
NOT GUILTY 2ND OFFENSE

Ryan struck a utility pole, snapped it in half and cut power to the whole area. His car rolled over and three cops had to bend the metal to get him out.  He failed the one leg stand test, the alphabet, the walk and turn and the backwards counting test. Then he admitted to the cop he had just had four beers, the last one an hour ago and had nothing to eat all day but breakfast.  Plus, he had slurred speech, bloodshot, glassy eyes and smelled of alcohol. Jury: Not Guilty 2nd offense.

CLIENT'S THANK YOU NOTE: 

"Joe, I interviewed several attorneys to represent me and NO ONE WAS EVEN WILLING TO GO TO TRIAL!  I liked how direct you were with me and never blew smoke or led me to believe there was no risk involved.  Your informed advice gave me the knowledge to make the correct decision. I  highly recommend you to anyone facing an OUI charge."

NOT GUILTY 2ND OFFENSE
AND ALL 4 CHARGES

I was still on probation for my first OUI when I got my second. I was also charged with Negligent Operation and Operating in Violation of the hours restriction on my hardship license, two additional criminal charges. Joe clearly knows this practice area. He also knew the judge, the DA and all the players. He got me acquitted of all 3 charges. Incredibly, he then convinced the judge to restore my license as well despite the three year refusal suspension.  I told him he could put my name and cell number anywhere he wants!

SPEEDING; FAILED FIELD SOBRIETY TESTS;
NOT GUILTY 2ND OFFENSE

I googled MA OUI lawyers and saw Joe had won 75% of his trials. The officer testified he saw me swerve from lane to lane without signaling and measured me speeding 35 mph over the limit. He also said I failed all the sobriety tests: the ABCs, one leg stand and 9 step walk and turn test. Joe argued to the jury that he hadn't bothered to make a note that I was nervous (due to the presence of three cops and three cruisers) that it was 27 degrees out and that I was wearing high heels.

'JOE IS SUPREMELY PREPARED, PROFESSIONAL AND ORGANIZED'

Damian was stopped for straddling lines and admitted to 4 beers. He had a strong odor of alcohol, glassy, bloodshot eyes and could not stand on one leg more than 5 seconds in 2 tries. I stressed to the jury he had no trouble producing his license and registration, exiting the car and walking perfectly normally to where the field sobriety tests were done. Though it was midnight, the cop never asked him if he had worked all day, was tired or nervous. After the not guilty jury verdict, I convinced the judge to restore his license immediately.

Plus, there was a strong odor of alcohol about hs person. The booking video showed him swaying at points and with slurred speech as well. Not guilty at bench trial.

BUT NOT GUILTY 2ND OFFENSE

Cop saw me go over the centerline and followed me. I turned into someone's driveway and shut off my lights but the cop approached me. I admitted drinking an hour ago and they found a vodka bottle on the back seat. I hopped all over the place trying to do the one leg stand and was arrested. Joe got the breath test thrown out of court and then advised me to go to trial. Joe stressed that the cop followed me over 1 1/4 miles and saw only one lane violation, that I signaled all turns and showed the cruiser video showing no difficulty getting out of my car, walking normally and no slurred speech.

Client was found alseep at the wheel after stopping at a green light. He admitted to drinking, 3 officers testified he was intoxicated, his speech was slurred and that he failed all the field tests. I brought the heavy work boots [click for photo] he wore that night to court and held them up high to show the officers, the judge and everyone else in the courtroom. None of the officers could remember whether he was wearing them until they were clearly seen on the booking video. I had previdously filed the proper motions to make certain that video was saved and not deleted by the police. Not guilty.

I had some beers and smoked some weed with my buddies in my neighborhood and didn't see the cruiser while driving home. We clipped mirrors. He stopped me and made me do field tests right in front of my home. Joe was on top of everything from day one. He got ALL of the videos preserved and they showed facts weren't exactly as the officer wrote in his report.  I wasn't even nervous at trial because I felt Joe's calmness next to me. The judge found me not guilty.

Civlian called police to report that client backed out of driveway swerving and appeared to be drunk. At trial, cop testified Scott had a strong odor of alcohol, bloodshot and glassy eyes and was unsteady on his feet.  I stressed that he pulled over promptly and safely, was able to produce both his license and registration quickly and without difficulty, and that any unsteadiness getting out of the car was due to being asked to walk towards the cruiser's headlights and flashing "takedown" lights which -- as I got the cop to admit on the stand during trial -- were still on !!  Judge found reasonable doubt and immeidately restored his licnse.

3 YR. REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED

Six years ago I had my first OUI, used a different lawyer and took a guilty plea. Last year I got my second OUI which seemed impossible to win. The 3 year loss of license for the breath test refusal meant the loss of my job. It would affect my marriage and the rest of my life. I thank God I called Joe who calmed my fears and got my license back n a few weeks so I could drive legally for the 9 months it took to go to trial. There he fought the case with brilliant expertise and won a NOT GUILTY! I have a new lease on life and will be forever grateful to God for putting attorney Waldbaum in my path.

RMV immediately suspended his license for a full three years for refusing the breathalyzer. We fought this at the RMV [which must be done within 15 calendar days of arrest] and then on appeal to a judge in court where a judge ordered his license restored [click yelllow link below]. He was then able to drive legally during the seven months it took to reach trial. On the day of trial, when the DA said she wasn't ready, I brought a "Motion to Dismiss for Failure to Prosecute" and convinced the judge to do so.

The judge dismissed all four charges.

Client was measured by LIDAR at 94 mph, didn't pull over quickly, failed 2 of 3 field sobriety tests then told trooper, "I know I screwed up." I stressed to jury that he passed the ABC test, had no slurred speech, and told the officer he had a bad back but was made to do the two balancing tests anyway. The officer said everybody on the jury could do the tests perfectly.  I saw 3 jurors look down and smile and asked, "How could you possibly know that for sure, officer?" He sheepishly answered, "Well, most of them probably could." Point taken. Not guilty in ten minutes.

RI driver arrested for 2nd OUI lost his right to drive in MA for three full years for refusing breath test. I guided him through the complex process of fighting this at the MA RMV (which must be done within 15 calendar days of the arrest). I then appealed their denial to a judge who reinstated his license so he could drive to court legally while the case worked its way towards trial over one year. For trial, I had requested the booking video preserved. There, I showed the jury he was able to walk perfectly normally over to the phone on the wall and dial it with no difficulty whatever graphically demonstrating both his gross and fine motor skills were perfectly intact. Not guilty in 15 minutes.

Client refused the breath test at the police station and was suspended by the RMV for three full years for doing so. The fight against this suspension must be begun within 15 calendar days after the arrest and we did so. Judge then reversed RMV decision and restored his license so he was be able to drive legally for one full year while the case moved toward trial.  At trial, although the trooper testified he appeared "out of it" and moved as if "underwater," we stressed his ability to produce his license and registration with no difficulty and do well on at least some fo the field tests meant reasonable doubt. Judge agreed.

I was arrested for a second offense OUI and was sure my license was gone for five years. After reading Joe's website, I called him and he immediately assuaged my fears by explaining that since my prior OUI was over ten years ago, he might be able to get me treated as a first offender again and get my license quickly. He made good on his word. I am driving to work again and my wife doesn't have to drive me. He was aso able to overturn my 3 year breathalyzer suspension. I couldn't recommend him more highly.

I was stopped at a sobriety checkpoint while driving some friends home. I admitted to drinking two beers and said the last one was about 20 minutes ago so the trooper asked me to step out and do three field sobriety tests and then arrested me. I took the breath test in the trailer and failed and immediately lost my license. Joe told me how to proceed every step of the way and did a great job at trial.

Client smelled of alcohol, admitted drinking and had red, glassy and bloodshot eyes. He failed 2 field sobriety tests and 2 empty beer bottles were found within reach in the truck. At the barracks, the breathalyzer registered over the legal limit at 0.10. At trial I argued cop followed him for one mile and he committed no lanes violations, had no trouble producing his license and registration, getting out of the car and walking normally. Plus the breath test was done one hour after driving and they couldn't prove what his blood alcohol was at the time of driving  --- as required by law.

NOT GUILTY ALL 3 CHARGES DESPITE ACCIDENT

Charles' license was suspended 3 years for the refusal. I advised him how to fight this at the RMV in the required 15 day period and then appealed to a judge in court. The judge ordered the 3 year suspension lifted so he was able to drive while we proceeded to trial. There, I showed the jury medical records indicating he suffered a concussion in the crash and argued that even though it was his fault, the balancing tests were done at 11 PM after a workday on a ramp leading up to the highway.

CHARLES' TESTIMONIAL:

"From the second Joe took my 5 AM call to my acquittal at trial, he was on top of every detail. What could easily have been a 5 year license loss became a NOT GUILTY verdict. He was articulate and organized in court, systematically shredding the DA's claims one by one.  He convinced the jury there was insufficient evidence despite the testimony of 2 state troopers, 2 failed sobriety tests and an accident.

But when he said I fell "face first" during the walk the line test, Joe showed the jury he never wrote that in his report. After the not guilty, he brought a motion to restore my license and convinced the judge to do so as well"

I admitted to drinking 3 beers, the most recent 1 hour previously. Joe pointed out the conflicts in their testimony and showed a photo that I was wearing 2 lip studs [which could account for the speech issue]. He argued my excellent performance on the alphabet test created the necessary reasonable doubt. The judge agreed. Then he had a Motion ready to restore my license [another battle due to my poor driving record] but Joe convinced him to do that as well.

We went to a Hearing in Boston and then appealed it to a Judge in Court. He just kept fighting until he got my license back while the case was still pending. [Incredibly, my job had asked me to give them notice the very day Joe got my license back!]   At trial, he was prepared to cross examine the driver of one of the cars I had hit, showing he had never said I had alcohol on my breath even though I told the cop I had 3 beers.

At the station, the breath test registered .19, almost two and one half times over limit!  At trial, although 2 cops testified, I argued neither could attest that he had placed the keys in the ignition or when he had done so.

The police officer followed me 1.5 miles at 45 mph only 2 car lengths behind then stopped me because I swerved over the fog line by a foot or so.  I told him I was nervous because he was so close behind me. He said my eyes were red and glassy, my speech slurred and I failed all the field tests so he arrested me for my 2nd offense. Joe brought a Motion to suppress the stop of my car and submitted cases to the Court supporting his argument. I never thought you could get DUI cases dismissed but the Judge concluded there was no cause for the stop. Joe then followed through to get my 3 year refusal suspension reversed and the DA filed this document dropping all charges:

It was my 2nd offense. I failed both the field sobriety tests and had 21 cans of beer in the truck, plus one open container of beer in the console!  Joe did a painstaking cross examination of the cop, bringing it along slowly and stressing everything I had done right.

2ND OFFENSE THROWN OUT OF COURT:
.17 BREATH TEST EXCLUDED
ROADBLOCK UNCONSTITUTIONALLY EXECUTED

Call me and I'll tell you the truth: Joe is, quite simply, an awesome Massachusetts OUI Attorney.  He always let me know what was going on with my case and was always on time to Court. After reviewing all the road block documents and the police reports, he told me he had a good chance to get my case thrown completely out of Court. At his Motion to Suppress Evidence, that’s exactly what happened.

The DA jumped up and down but the Judge agreed with Joe!

NOT GUILTY 2ND OFFENSE

Ryan struck a utility pole, snapped it in half and cut power to the whole area. His car rolled over and three cops had to bend the metal to get him out.  He failed the one leg stand test, the alphabet, the walk and turn and the backwards counting test. Then he admitted to the cop he had just had four beers, the last one an hour ago and had nothing to eat all day but breakfast.  Plus, he had slurred speech, bloodshot, glassy eyes and smelled of alcohol. Jury: Not Guilty 2nd offense.

CLIENT'S THANK YOU NOTE: 

"Joe, I interviewed several attorneys to represent me and NO ONE WAS EVEN WILLING TO GO TO TRIAL!  I liked how direct you were with me and never blew smoke or led me to believe there was no risk involved.  Your informed advice gave me the knowledge to make the correct decision. I  highly recommend you to anyone facing an OUI charge."

NOT GUILTY, 2ND OFFENSE

Client waved to a passing cop with his keys in his hand and told him he was having trouble starting his car. They stopped, noticed slurred speech, and he failed all the field tests. At the station, the breath test registered .19, almost two and one half times over limit!  At trial, although 2 cops testified, I argued neither could attest that he had placed the keys in the ignition or when he had done so. Plus, I was able to prove the battery was dead and thus he had the additional defense of "factual impossibility." Not guilty 2nd offense.

NOT GUILTY AT TRIAL

I was arrested for my 2nd offense. The arresting detective said I had very thick and slurred speech and was unsteady on my feet. Plus, I admitted drinking two gin and tonics and one 16 oz. beer shortly before driving. The booking sergeant testified I had red, glassy and bloodshot eyes and in his opinion I was under the influence of alcohol. I even admitted I felt the effects of the alcohol! I took the breath test at the station and failed it over limit. Joe won the case and avoided a two year loss of license and thousands of dollars in fines and fees.

The Sergeant testified I failed  the one leg stand and nine step walk and turn test, was red faced and had glazed eyes.  Joe stressed to the jury all the things I had done right while driving. I avoided having to install a breathalyzer in my car, an additional two year license loss and over $5000 in various fines and fees. I've got my license back and am driving again.

The police officer followed me 1.5 miles at 45 mph only 2 car lengths behind then stopped me because I swerved over the fog line by a foot or so.  I told him I was nervous because he was so close behind me. He said my eyes were red and glassy, my speech slurred and I failed all the field tests so he arrested me for my 2nd offense. Joe brought a Motion to suppress the stop of my car and submitted cases to the Court supporting his argument. I never thought you could get DUI cases dismissed but the Judge concluded there was no cause for the stop. Joe then followed through to get my 3 year refusal suspension reversed and the DA filed this document dropping all charges:

JOE BEAT JAIL FOR ME IN 2 COURTS IN 1 DAY!
(DESPITE A .28 FAILED BREATH TEST)

I was still on Probation for OUI-1st in Salem when I was arrested for OUI 2nd Offense in Ipswich and registered an over limit .28. My Salem Probation Officer issued a Warrant for my arrest and asked that I be placed into custody when I got to Newburyport.  The DA in Newburyport was asking for jail also.  Joe managed to talk the judge out of having me taken into custody AND of sending me to jail for my 2nd offense.  Instead, the Judge actually released me into Joe's custody. Then when we went to Salem later that day, my Probation officer was asking for a one year jail sentence on my first offense. Joe convinced the Salem Judge not to do so and I went home that night instead of to jail. Joe is the most intimidating and confident lawyer I have ever encountered and I was blessed to have him on my side.

The cop testified I had slurred speech, smelled of alcohol, glassy eyes, was unsteady on my feet, could not stand without swaying and failed the field sobriety tests. First, Joe reduced the 3 year refusal suspension to just 180 days so I got my license back while the case was going on and then he beat all four charges at Trial:

He was absolutely right both times. One incredible DUI Attorney.

GLOUCESTER

2nd OFFENSE:
3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED

Even though his prior OUI was over 30 years previously, client was arrested and charged as a second offender. After refusing the breath test at the station house, the RMV suspended him for three full years. To challenge this, the fight must be started within fifteen calendar days. I walked him through the complex process of how to do this and ultimately a judge restored his license. This saved him three full years without any form of license whatever.

See decision restoring license.




8.26.15; PEABODY

3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED
FOR 2ND OFFENSE

Client was charged as a second offender and refused to take the breath test when offered at the police station. (The breath test at roadside does not count.) The Registry suspended him for 3 full years. I guided him through the complex process of appealing this at the RMV and then before a judge in court. The judge reversed the RMV and restored his right to drive while the case was still pending.

See decision reversing registry.




7.8.15; MALDEN

3 YR. REFUSAL REVERSED ON 2ND OFFENSE

At the station, my client refused to take the breathalyzer test and the RMV suspended his license immediately for three years, He retained me and I instructed him that this is the major portion of license loss for a second offender and the fight against it must be started within fifteen calendar days of the arrest. We were successful and he got his license back while the case was still going on in court.

6.12.15; ATTLEBORO

2ND OFFENSE:
3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED

Client was stopped because his truck tires were "outside the fenders." He refused the breathalyzer at the police station. Unfortunately, the RMV suspended him for three years for doing so. I guided him through the process of challenging this suspension first at the Boston RMV and then appealing it to a judge in court where we won. He was then able to drive again while the case was still pending in court.

3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED
AFTER 2ND OFFENSE

My client as arrested for his second OUI and refused the breath test when he reached the police station [The breath test at roadside is a screening test only and is inadmissible in court.] The RMV suspended his license for a full three years. I guided him through starting the challenge at the RMV within the required 15 days. After the RMV refused to restore his license, I appealed it up to a judge in court and we won. He can now drive legally again.

FAILED BREATH TEST THROWN OUT
2ND OFFENSE

Client was stopped for speeding and arrested for OUI. He failed the breathalyzer at the station a well over the legal limit. Before advising him how to proceed, I insisted on scrutinizing the booking video and discerned that the breath test was not properly administered. I was able to show this to a Judge at a Motion to Suppress Hearing. The Judge agreed and excluded the breath test from evidence at Trial.

See court order excluding breath test.




BOSTON-BROOKLINE

FIRST I OVERTURN HER 3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION
THEN GET HER A NOT GUILTY ON HER 2ND OFFENSE

Client was found by 3 cops fast asleep in her car with the music blaring. She was unsteady when she got out, admitted to drinking, had glassy, bloodshot eyes, and slurred speech. I accompanied her to the Boston RMV to fight the 3 year suspension fro not taking the breath test, then appealed it to a judge in Court and had her license restored just weeks after her arrest so she could drive while the case went to trial. At trial, the police testified that she had parked "askew" to the lines in the lot. However, I had gone out to the scene of the arrest and taken photos. I presented them to the judge proving the lines were barely visible in daylight, much less at two am. At trial, she was acquitted of ALL the charges against her.

2ND OFFENSE REDUCED TO 1ST
$2200 SAVED AND NO IGNITION INTERLOCK REQUIRED

My client had been assigned to a DWI program out of state for Reckless Driving [which can count as a prior OUI in Mass] so the DA charged 2nd offense. I reviewed the statutes and produced a Memorandum showing that the DWI program had to be done as a result of a “like violation.” I convinced the DA Reckless Driving didn’t contain a per se or impairment element and thus didn’t suffice. She agreed and reduced the charge.

Client saved $2200 plus the embarrassment of an ignition interlock in his car



WAREHAM

NOT GUILTY 2ND OFFENSE

Cop followed my client as he was trying to get on Route 195 back to Boston. He missed the turnoff and had make a U-turn and come back. When the cop approached, he reported a strong odor of alcohol and that the client was unsteady on his feet as he exited and walked around the car. I took photos of the signage as well as the highway entrance. When I showed them to the cop, I got the him to admit on the stand that "a lot of people get confused" by the signage in that area. The judge found him not guilty, stating his driving behavior was more consistent with "confusion" than with impairment by alcohol.




WESTBORO

.32 FAILED BREATH TEST & 2ND OFFENSE: 3 OF 4 CHARGES DROPPED & NO JAIL

Despite having an over limit breath test of .32 (4 times the legal limit!) less than two years after her previous arrest for OUI, I negotiated a deal where not even a suspended jail sentence was imposed and 3 of the 4 charges against her were dropped on the very first Court date.




BROCKTON

WORK LICENSE GRANTED FOR 2nd OFFENSE

My client needed a "Hardship License" for work and had tried, unsuccessfully, to obtain one by representing himself first before the Registry and then the Board of Appeals. After he retained me, I organized all the required documents into one easy-to-read Memorandum addressing sequentially each of the nine points I know the Registry will scrutinize. When the Hearing Officer saw it, he said, "If everyone did this, it would make my job much easier." He then granted my client's work license.





NEWBURYPORT -IPSWICH

JURY ACQUITS SECOND OFFENDER IN 15 MINUTES

My client was arrested for his 2nd offense while riding his motorcycle. I argued to the jury that driving a two wheeled vehicle requires a finer sense of balance than driving a four wheeled one. Also, dismounting requires raising one leg up very high and he was able to do so with no difficulties or unsteadiness. The Sergeant testified he had him walk an imaginary line heel to toe so I asked him "How wide was that imaginary line?" As he stammered to answer, the jury got the point. They came back with a not guilty in 15 minutes.




BOSTON - CHARLESTOWN

3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION OVERTURNED

My client, facing his 2nd offense, refused the breath test and the RMV suspended his license for three full years. After an unsuccessful hearing at the Boston RMV, I appealed his case to a Judge in District Court who overturned his refusal suspension the very same day I argued before him. This saved my client:

1. three years with only a limited 12 hour license,

2. three years with the breathalyzer in his car and

3. about $3600 in fees.

Western Mass. client received a full three year license suspension by the RMV for refusing the Breathalyzer test on his 2nd offense. After an unsuccessful Hearing at the Boston RMV, I appealed it to the Judge in District Court. In his written decision, he found that the RMV "exceeded its constitutional or statutory authority" and "acted in an arbitrary and capricious manner." He ordered my client's license restored immediately so he could continue to drive legally while the case was still going on.

Result: No 2 year license loss or "ignition interlock device" required.

Facing his 2nd offense, client was stopped at a drunk driving road block and registered an over limit.16 Breathalyzer –twice the legal limit. At my Motion to Suppress, I argued that the roadblock did not comply with the very strict guidelines set up by the Supreme Judicial Court for the operation of roadblocks. The Judge agreed and threw the case out of Court.

My client was in a bad accident and taken to the hospital where a blood draw was performed showing he was over the legal limit. Plus, he admitted he was drinking a beer at the moment the accident happened. At my Motion to Suppress, this statement was thrown out. Then at Trial, the blood result was excluded and we won a Not Guilty on both the OUI -2nd offense and the Open Container charge.




FITCHBURG

ALMOST HITS POLICE CRUISER;
NOT GUILTY OF SECOND OFFENSE

My client crossed the fog line and almost hit a state police cruiser. When he was finally stopped, his clothes were disheveled, his speech was slurred and there was a strong odor of alcohol on his breath. He was unable to complete the alphabet test and was arrested for his 2nd offense as well as obstructing an emergency vehicle. He was found not guilty: no mandatory jail, no two week hospital treatment program, no fines, no fees, and no probation.

“YOU REALLY DID A GREAT JOB!”



WALTHAM

3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION REDUCED TO JUST 6 MONTHS

My client, charged with his 2nd offense, had refused the Breathalyzer and the RMV immediately suspended him for a full three years. I advised him that there was a loophole in the then current statute allowing for a reduction of this to just 6 months through the Board of Appeals. I presented the Board with my Memorandum detailing this and the Board accordingly reduced his three year suspension to just six months.

This saved him two and one half years without a license.



NEWBURYPORT - IPSWICH

CLIENT: "IF I DIDN'T ADMIT I WAS DRUNK, WOULD YOU STILL HAVE ARRESTED ME"
RESULT: NOT GUILTY

Charged with his 2nd offense, client was stopped for speeding 71 mph in a 45 zone and straddling the fog line. After failing 2 sobriety tests and admitting to 4 drinks, he made the above statement to the cop at the station after being arrested.

I got the cop to admit on the stand he waited in that area nightly because "he caught a lot of speeders on that stretch." Then I demonstrated the 2 sobriety tests in front of the jury, pointed out they were done at 1 AM on the fog line of a highway with CARS SPEEDING BY just 2-3 feet away.

(If convicted, my client would have lost his license for 2 years and his dream job as a cameraman at a top TV news station.)




SOMERVILLE & BOSTON

MANDATORY JAIL SENTENCE AVOIDED

The defendant had already pled guilty to OUI 2nd offense in Boston and had his license suspended for five years. Foolishly, he drove before the suspension expired and was arrested and charged in Somerville with operating after suspension for OUI. This charge carries a mandatory jail sentence of 60 days. This was further complicated because he was still on Probation in Boston and could be sent to jail by that Court merely for getting arrested again.

I first represented him while he was being held in jail at Somerville. I went sidebar and informed the judge that he was suffering from AIDS and complications and took 2-3 dozen medications per day. In other words, incarceration would likely kill him. The Judge convinced the DA to reduce the charge to mere Operating after Suspension and he received only a fine and was immediately released from jail and into my custody.

Then I represented him at his Probation Violation Hearings in Boston and managed to avoid the jail sentence from being imposed there as well.

'HAVING JOE JUST A PHONE CALL AWAY PUT ME AT EASE'

I can’t thank Joe enough for everything he’s done. When I was charged with my 2nd offense OUI, he actually won 2 cases for me! Because I refused the breathalyzer, the RMV hit me with a three year refusal suspension. Joe went to the RMV with me to appeal the suspension, then filed a suit against the RMV and won. I got my license back immediately! I was amazed that he knew virtually everyone in the courthouse. He is well liked and respected by all; the judges, the DAs, police, everybody! It was evident that he has a good reputation within the legal community. He possesses charisma and character and knows how to use both.

He was able to break down all of the facts in such a way that I understood what type of a situation I had before me. He never moved forward until I understood all of the aspects of the case.

At my OUI trial several months later, he strategically ordered a bench trial rather than a jury trial. At the trial, he picked apart every inconsistency between the officers’ testimony and their written reports. His questioning made their heads spin. He left no doubt in the judge’s mind of my innocence and got me a ‘Not Guilty’ Verdict. If you are looking for a Mass. DUI Lawyer that is honest, ethical, diligent, and experienced, call Joe Waldbaum!

BEST PREPARED LAWYER IN THE COURTROOM:

"My prior OUI was 20 years previously but it was still my 2nd offense. Under the new law, I was entitled to be treated as a first offender once again. The Judge had evidently not heard of the new law and wasn't willing to do this. Joe reached into his briefcase and handed the Judge a copy of the new law and a recent case directly on point. After reading these, the Judge realized he was mistaken and did exactly what Joe asked for.

"I got an immediate hardship license instead of a 5 year license loss."

"Thank you so much for helping me with this matter. It was nice to meet you as well. It was also a pleasure to work with someone who wanted to help me out. It seems hard to find nowadays. I thank you again for reducing my 2nd offense refusal suspension by a full two and one half years."
