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."

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.

NOT GUILTY DESPITE FAILED FIELD TESTS

I was suspended for five years as a third offender for refusing the breath test. After an RMV Hearing [which must occur within 15 calendar days of the arrest, we appealed their denial to a judge. The judge ordered the RMV to restore my license and I was able to drive legally for a year while the case worked its way towards trial.  

Cop stopped me because I went over the line twice. He said I had glassy, bloodshot eyes, a strong odor of alcohol, was unsteady on my feet and failed both field tests. Joe stressed they were done at 3:15 am in 27 degree weather and the cop never wrote in his report that my speech was slurred. Joe was thorough, professional, and hit every point.

"Attorneys Dunn and Waldbaum were thoroughly professional from start to finish. I was worried about how it would turn out but they put me at ease. Attorney Dunn 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.

FAILED BREATH TEST AND FIELD TESTS:
NOT GUILTY AT TRIAL

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.

'JOE SAVED MY LIFE.'

I've dealt with a lot of lawyers but Joe is definitely the best.  He kept me informed through the entire case with emails and copies of documents.  At Trial, the cop testified I committed 4 traffic infractions, had slurred speech, was unsteady when I got out of my car and failed the one leg stand, walk and turn and alphabet tests. Plus, the booking sergeant testified I had a strong odor of alcohol and saw me sway during booking. Joe was unbelievable at Trial and turned the tables on them both. The jury was out only 40 minutes. Not Guilty 2nd offense OUI.

NOT GUILTY

I was stopped at a road block and admitted to the Trooper I had been drinking 45 minutes ago. He took me out of the car and I foolishly agreed to do the field sobriety tests. I failed them all and was arrested. Then I –also foolishly—agreed to take the breathalyzer in the trailer nearby. I registered over limit on both of them too. Plus, at Trial, the Trooper testified my eyes couldn’t focus on him and I was unsteady on my feet. No matter. Joe’s obvious skills as a Mass. DUI Lawyer during cross-examination won the day.

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.

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.

  • into a safe area
  • not blocking traffic

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 previously 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.

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.

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.

THEN NOT GUILTY AT TRIAL

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 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.

It was in the middle of the night when I filled out the “Free Consultation” form on this website and within minutes I got a call from Joe himself, polite and re-assuring. Even with minimum time to prepare for the case next morning he was there in court ready to go. He explained my options clearly, did not give me false promises or hopes and did not make decisions for me. He is well respected in court and knows everyone there. During the entire process he never made me feel like I had to do it alone.  

I was in a crash and rode for a while on a flat tire. After witnesses told the cop where I was, the cop first found the tire then found me stopped in the middle of the road. I was unsteady on my feet, smelled of alcohol, failed all the field tests and then fell over to the ground when I bent to tie my shoe lace.

 Result: Not Guilty- Judge ordered my license immediately restored.

My case looked like a sure loser but Joe studied the booking video and said we should try to get the breath test excluded. At his motion to suppress, he showed a half dozen ways it was done incorrectly and the judge threw it out. That gave us a fighting chance. At trial, a police lieutenant testified to my car going the wrong way completely over the center line and the arresting officer swore I failed all the field sobriety tests. Joe was ready to cross-examine them all. He  is one of the most intelligent people I have ever met. I owe him my license, my job, and my life.

She then blew an over limit breathalyzer at the barracks after her arrest. I argued the field tests were done at 4 am while barefoot and the breath test was given almost one hour after driving and it could not be proven beyond all reasonable doubt what her blood alcohol was "at the time of driving" as required by law.

He then demonstrated the field sobriety tests in front of the jury box to show how hard they are and how well I had performed at 2 AM. He took care of everything from soup to nuts.  After the Not Guilty verdict, he even was able to convince the Judge to restore my license immediately.

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.

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:

At the Motions hearing, he methodically documented an extensive laundry list  of things the Trooper had done all wrong. Once the Judge allowed his Motion to Suppress evidence, the DA dismissed the case, writing "there is insufficient evidence to proceed with the prosecution at this time."

The Police Report said  I had slurred speech, glassy eyes, was unsteady, failed  to touch my finger at the spot he told me to, couldn't keep my foot up for 30 seconds, didn’t walk heel to toe like he showed me, and couldn’t say the alphabet. In other words, I failed all the field tests. As an experienced Mass DUI Lawyer, Joe told me I could win anyway and advised we go to Trial. He did a fantastic job.

He also beat the Brake Lights Violation so nothing went on my driving record at all.

"HE SAVED MY LIFE. I WAS DEAD GUILTY."

"He's quick, smart, and fast. The way he speaks just blows you away.; He made all the right decisions: got 2 incriminating statements thrown out at a Motions Hearing.; I'm driving again and kept my job after the not guilty verdict despite the cop's testimony that I failed all the field sobriety tests on my 2nd offense. Good thing, too, my wife was 4 months pregnant. I highly recommend him."

-- AND I MEAN EVERYBODY!"

NOT GUILTY 2ND OFFENSE:
FAILED ALL FIELD TESTS, 21 CANS OF BEER IN TRUCK

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. We got a Not Guilty and the judge ordered my 3 year refusal suspension overturned the same day. 

"AT TRIAL, HE IMPRESSED EVERYBODY.
PEOPLE IN THE AUDIENCE ASKED FOR HIS CARD"

NATICK - FRAMINGHAM
ARRESTED FOR DWI: NOT GUILTY!
JOE SAID WE COULD WIN AND HE WAS RIGHT

I had an open container of beer in the car, was weaving in my lane, crossed the double solid center line and failed two of the three field sobriety tests. After writing me three extremely detailed reports about the case, Joe recommended we fight the charges. He walked me through the Trial process every step of the way and totally kept me from getting nervous.  I'm extremely happy with the way he handled everything.

"He wanted to win so badly,
he actually gave up an oral surgery appointment to do my Trial!"

NOT GUILTY!
"JOE IS EXTREMELY IMPRESSIVE IN COURT"

Cop testified he saw me drive up onto a curb and cross marked lanes, was unsteady on my feet, swayed while walking, had a strong odor of alcohol, slurred speech and failed the one leg stand field sobriety test. At my Arraignment, Joe had a Motion allowed to preserve the videos of me at roadside and at booking which ended up refuting what the cop said. Then after getting a Not Guilty, he went the extra mile and  interceded on my behalf with the RMV when they refused to reinstate my license despite the Court Order he had obtained immediately after Trial to force them to do so.

I strongly recommend him to anybody.   Call me!

MALDEN - ROAD BLOCK
NOT GUILTY!
FAILED BREATH TEST AND 2 OF 3 FIELD TESTS

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.


LAWRENCE

NOT GUILTY; SECOND OFFENSE
DESPITE 'PERFORMING POORLY' ON THE FIELD TESTS​

The trooper said I smelled of alcohol, had red, glassy, bloodshot eyes, and performed poorly on the field sobriety tests. Plus, he testified I didn't blow into the breath machine correctly and called it a refusal causing a three year license loss. At trial, Joe stressed to jury:

  • it was 2:30 AM,
  • there was no erratic driving as he followed me for one and a half miles,
  • he said there was nothing abnormal with my fine motor skills, and
  • he never noted that my speech was slurred in his 4 page report.
Jury verdict: Not guilty.

See judge's order restoring license.

I STILL FACED A 3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION

WESTBORO

2ND OFFENDER FAILS FIELD TESTS, ADMITS TO 6 BEERS- NOT GUILTY AT TRIAL

On the 9 Step Walk & Turn test, Client took 20 steps out and 22 steps back (instead of 9 each way). Plus, he admitted first to 2 then later to 6 beers. At my Motion to suppress evidence, the Judge threw out his admission to 6 beers as in violation of his Miranda Rights. Then at trial, I showed the booking video and stressed everything my client had done right instead of wrong.

Result: Not Guilty – no jail or 5 year license loss



WESTBORO

FAILED BREATH TESTS AND 3 FIELD TESTS:
NOT GUILTY- SECOND OFFENSE

Cop testified my client smelled of alcohol, had slurred speech, failed the backwards counting, the 9 step walk and turn and the one leg stand field sobriety tests. At the station, my client was over limit and failed the breath tests as well. I stressed to the Court all the things my client had done right [no problems driving, producing license and registration, followed cop's instructions, etc.] and that the breath test was done over one hour after he was arrested and thus should be discounted.

The Judge agreed. Not Guilty.




CONCORD

NOT GUILTY AFTER FAILING 4 SOBRIETY TESTS

An international oil trader had been speeding 88 mph in a 45 mph zone and failed four roadside field sobriety tests. At trial, I argued that performing these tests perfectly by the side of the road in dress shoes at 4 AM is impossibly difficult. Result: we obtained a not guilty.

MARLBORO

NO CONVICTIONS ON ANY OF CHARGES

My client was seen by an officer commit lanes violations and was stopped. He had alcohol on his breath, slurred speech, his insurance had expired and he did poorly on the field sobriety tests. At the bench trial, I convinced the judge other factors were likely to be just as responsible for his performance (nervousness, lateness of the hour, weather conditions) and thus the DA had not proven beyond all reasonable doubt impairment by alcohol. He was not convicted of any of the charges.




MARLBORO

MOTION TO SUPPRESS ALL EVIDENCE GRANTED

Westborough Police radioed that my client was driving into Marlborough possibly intoxicated. A Marlborough cop received the call, followed my client's car 1/4 mile, then stopped and arrested him. At my Motion to Suppress, I cross examined the officer who admitted my client had not committed a single traffic infraction, had signaled a turn properly and shown no evidence of erratic driving whatever. The (prosecution oriented) Judge suppressed the entire motor vehicle stop and all evidence obtained thereafter including three field sobriety tests, observations of the officer and all statements my client made — in other words: their entire case. The charges were completely dismissed on the day of trial.




FRAMINGHAM - NATICK

5 BEERS IN 1 HOUR PLUS ACCIDENT: NOT GUILTY

My client had caused a bad accident pulling out of his driveway and then admitted to 5 beers in 1 hour. I pointed out to the Judge that he was obviously shaken from the crash, there were 4 emergency vehicles present all with their lights flashing and despite this his performance on 2 of the 3 field tests was still adequate. Result: Not guilty after trial.




DUDLEY -WEBSTER

NOT GUILTY: DINNER RECEIPT + DOCTOR'S REPORT DIAGNOSING 'GERD'

My client and 12 year old daughter went to the Police to report a restraining order violation. The cops refused to take a report and insisted she perform 5 field sobriety tests in front of her daughter. I moved for an immediate trial 3 weeks later and told the Judge to imagine the pressure a mother is under when forced to do such tests in full view of her children. I also produced the dinner receipt showing she had only 2 drinks 6 hours earlier, and medical reports showing she suffered from GERD [explaining the 'moderate' odor of alcohol] Result: Not Guilty and license restored that day.




QUINCY

LIEUTENANT AND OFFICER BOTH TESTIFY - NOT GUILTY

My client was clocked speeding at 70+ mph in a 35 mph zone. The Police Report noted a "strong odor" of alcohol and "severely" bloodshot and glassy eyes. Then he admitted to drinking beers only 30 minutes previously and failed 2 of the 3 field tests. Plus, at Trial, the Lieutenant who booked him testified and said he also thought my client was OUI. I argued to the Judge that his good performance on one of the tests and the lateness of the hour (2:30 AM) created reasonable doubt. The Judge agreed: Not Guilty




WESTBORO

FAILED BREATH TESTS AND 3 FIELD TESTS:
NOT GUILTY- SECOND OFFENSE

Cop testified my client smelled of alcohol, had slurred speech, failed the backwards counting, the 9 step walk and turn and the one leg stand field sobriety tests.

I stressed to the Court all the things my client had done right [no problems driving, producing license and registration, followed cop's instructions, etc.] and that the breath test was done over one hour after he was arrested and thus should be discounted.

HAVERHILL

COLLEGE GRAD WHO COULDN'T RECITE ALPHABET ACQUITTED

A summa cum laude UMass grad was speeding 87 mph in a 65 mph zone, couldn't say the alphabet and failed all four field sobriety tests. Then the cop testified he had crossed the center line by "a foot and a half" for "10 to 12 seconds" at least "two to three times." On cross exam, I asked him to underline the sentences in his Report where he recorded any of those assertions. Not even one was in his Report and he lost all credibility with the Judge.

OUI: Not Guilty
Lanes Violations:  Not Responsible



SOMERVILLE

NOT GUILTY!
"AND HE DIDN'T CHARGE ME AN ARM AND A LEG UP FRONT!"

It was a bad accident. I hit a parked car, drove it onto the sidewalk into a set of stairs and structurally damaged them. Then I admitted to the cop I had “a few." He testified I smelled of alcohol, was unsteady, had bloodshot, glassy eyes and failed the field tests. They even video recorded me doing them [and not very well!] back at the station house. No matter. Joe told me he could win the case at Trial and that's exactly what he did. No fines, no Probation, no alcohol programs, nothing.

Plus, he went to Court many, many times and charged me no extra money.



CLINTON

FAILED BREATH TESTS - NOT GUILTY AT TRIAL

Melanie’s Law dictates if you blow .08 or over you are guilty of OUI. Period. Client had blown .09-- twice, admitted to coming from a bar and having four drinks over the past hour. Plus, the cop didn’t like the way he did the field sobriety tests. I advised him not to plead guilty and not to have a Jury Trial. We did so and he received a Not Guilty -- despite the two over limit breath tests.




WORCESTER

UNDER 21, OVER 100 MPH:
NOT GUILTY

Trooper saw client speeding over 100 mph and stopped him. Underage driver admitted to coming from a bar and consuming three drinks in the past hour. Plus, he was unsteady exiting the car, performing the field tests and was surly and uncooperative with officer. I convinced the Judge the late hour [2 AM] and other conditions explained his behavior and created reasonable doubt. The Judge agreed.




WESTBORO

.131 PBT + ADMITS TO 5 BEERS, NOT GUILTY

The cop followed my client and testified he committed "several lanes violations" and noted a "moderate" odor of alcohol on his breath. Then the client admitted to 5 beers in a short period of time, got out of the car and made several errors on the field sobriety tests.

Result:  Not Guilty after Trial and license restored.






CLINTON


JOE TURNED THE WORST CASE SCENARIO
INTO THE BEST CASE SCENARIO

I had been suspended years previously but had been driving without a license. When I was arrested again, I faced the possibility of mandatory jail time and additional license loss. Joe obviously knows all the ins and outs as well as all the players in this field. He managed to get the criminal charges dismissed and got me found "Not Responsible" on the civil charges as well. He saved me from all sorts of consequences, further fines, fees and license loss.

MY LIFE CHANGED SO MUCH FROM 2 SIMPLE WORDS: NOT GUILTY

"In my field, having a license is the most important asset. Without it, I wouldn't be working for a news station now (or any news station for years to come). You met me at the site of the arrest on a Sunday morning, made a video and took photos and used them all at my Jury Trial. Your hard work and determination paid off ."

"HIRE THIS GUY!
HE DOESN'T MAKE PROMISES HE CAN'T KEEP"

I was charged with my 2nd offense and failed both the field tests and registered over limit on the breath tests. I called Joe and he had a very comforting manner and was calm and courteous on the phone so I hired him immediately. Somehow, he got me a not guilty after Trial. Keep his card in your wallet!

I owe him my world and my kid's world.
