OUI-DRUGS - 3RD OFFENSE
BAD ACCIDENT- CHARGES DROPPED

I told cops I’d taken 3 drugs. They videoed a drug expert testing me for 45 minutes. I looked totally out of it!  My urine sample showed 7 metabolites of those same 3 drugs. Joe made no promises and didn’t sugar coat anything. But be careful, this man will save your life! He did mine. I looked at his track record, client testimonials and checked with other lawyers and detective friends. I found he is highly respected by his peers. When in court, he worked it like an artist, First he noticed my Miranda form had not been done correctly and got all my statements thrown out. Then he wrote a Memorandum argung the urine test should be suppressed too. Incredibly, the judge agreed. The DA had so little evidence left he dropped all charges on the trial date.

'IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE WHAT HE DID FOR ME IN THAT COURTROOM'

ACCIDENT-
OUI-DRUGS CHARGE DISMISSED AT TRIAL

After a two car crash, while at the police station client admitted he had been smoking marijuana shortly before driving. Plus, drug paraphernalia was found in his truck. At my Motion to suppress evidence, I proved that he had not been Mirandized properly and the judge threw out all his statements. At trial, the DA agreed they couldn't prove it without his statements and dismissed the charge.  No conviction, no license loss, no probation, no 16 week treatment program and saved about $2400 in fines and fees.

NOT GUILTY

'I'd been involved with the court system before and had many lawyers. Most of them did nothing for me.  I heard many good stories about what Joe did for other clients and so had lots of faith in him.  He's the best lawyer I ever dealt with.  He kept me informed, checked in with me regularly and knew exactly what he was doing at all times. It couldn't have worked out better. He even waived my last payment so I could go out with my friends and celebrate. Very nice guy.' 

'JOE KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT HE'S DOING.'

NOT GUILTY; OUI-DRUGS 2ND OFFENSE

Client was seen by off duty cop to cross center line 6-7 times and once go entirely into opposite lane then run through a 4 way stop sign. He admitted to taking Vicodin and according to the arresting officer failed the one leg stand and the nine step walk and turn field tests. Despite the testimony of three officers at trial, he was found not guilty.

NOT GUILTY OUI-DRUGS; "NEVER HAD ANY DOUBT"

I was stopped for multiple lane violations. I told the Trooper I had smoked a joint and had 2 beers 20 minutes ago. He noted a "blank stare" on my face and that I was unsteady on my feet. He said I failed the 3 field sobriety tests and arrested me. I never had any doubts in Attorney Waldbaum's abilities. He was always on time and prepared for every Court date for the year it took to go to trial. He wrote full reports every step of the way to  help me make all the right decisions. (Obviously.) Call me.  I'll gladly tell you.

UNDER 21 OUI-DRUGS
CHARGES THROWN OUT OF COURT

Cop saw me throw a Hawaiian Punch bottle out the window and stopped me for littering. He then smelled marijuana and I admitted I had been smoking and gave him the blunt. He had me get out of the car and do 3 field tests and then arrested me for OUI Drugs. Joe brought the case along carefully with pretrial motions and Hearings (and must have done it all right) because on the day of trial the DA dropped all charges.

JOE DID ONE HELL OF A JOB!

OUI-DRUGS: ILLEGAL SEARCH
INCRIMINATING PILL BOTTLE SUPPRESSED

Client was stopped for erratic driving and admitted taking Vicodin. He told the officers he had a prescription bottle in his coat pocket beside him. The officer reached in the open window, extracted the coat, searched the pockets and found the incriminating pill bottle. At my Motion to Suppress, I argued that he had not given legally sufficient permission to the officer to reach into the car, seize his coat and/or search the pockets. The judge agreed.

OUI DRUGS 3RD OFFENSE THROWN OUT OF COURT

My client had been charged with OUI-Drugs 3rd offense for taking the antidepressant Trazodone and faced a mandatory jail sentence of at least six months. Upon researching the issue, I found the one case in Massachusetts directly addressing its legality under the MA statute. A respected Judge had done an exhaustive eight page analysis and concluded that Trazodone -- as an anti depressant --was NOT included in the list of drugs barred by the statute. I presented a copy of the case to the DA and Judge on the very first Court date and managed to get the case thrown out of Court even before my client was arraigned so it never even appeared on his criminal record at all.

2 YEAR LICENSE LOSS AVOIDED WHEN OUI DRUGS CHARGE DROPPED

My client was charged with OUI-Liquor, OUI-Drugs, possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, failure to stop at a stop sign and a marked lanes violation. He registered twice the legal limit on the breath test and then admitted to the officers that he had used the cocaine right before driving. I managed to negotiate a deal where 3 of the 6 charges were dropped outright, including OUI-Drugs, only the minimum 45 day loss of license was imposed and he was able to get a work license, thus avoiding a 2 year loss of license

'HONEST & KNOWLEDGEABLE.
DO YOURSELF A FAVOR & HIRE HIM'

Attorney Waldbaum is an amazing lawyer. I was charged with OUI-Drugs 2nd offense and 3 drug charges- also my 2nd offense. I caused an accident and my case looked impossible to win. I'm still in shock over how good the outcome was! Instead of a 5 year license loss, I got only 90 days and am eligible for a hardship license. You can call me to confirm all this: Carol, 781.267.0590

'HE HELD MY HAND EVERY STEP OF THE WAY'





A PARENT'S TESTIMONIAL- WOBURN

My introduction to Attorney Waldbaum was on a Saturday afternoon in February 2010, when my son, an 18 yr old college student, informed my wife and me that he had been stopped for OUI-Drugs (marijuana) the night before. He was due in court at 9am Monday morning and Joe spent a great deal of time talking us through what to expect and gathering the necessary information to represent my son.

While this was difficult in itself, the situation turned worse when my son was stopped a second time less than six weeks later for the same offense – this time on a Sunday evening. Joe again spent the time to inform us of what we would likely face in court on Monday morning and the news was not good.

Due to the first charge being unresolved and now a second arrest, it was likely that the prosecutor would seek jail time for my son because of his bail violation. Joe was able to strike a deal on Monday that kept my son out of jail in exchange for my son agreeing not to drive and being subject to random drug testing until the two cases were resolved. From this point on Joe developed a strategy to seek the best possible outcome for my son. He identified the risks/rewards of multiple strategies and engaged each of us along the way to gain our acceptance and/or objections.

Ultimately, based upon Joe’s recommendation, my son decided (with our support) to accept a CWOF on his first arrest. Joe believed that he had a strong defense for the second case and proceeded to work on a winning strategy. Through multiple court appearances, legal arguments and motions that lasted for over a year, finally in April 2011, my son’s case was going to be heard before a trial by Judge. Joe was confident that he had a strong case, and that it was going to be heard by a reasonable judge, and as my son was being called into the courtroom, the prosecutor asked to speak with Joe.

The nightmare was finally over as Joe came back with the news that the case was being dismissed. I believe that Joe’s frankness and straightforward approach in explaining the possible outcomes to my son, made a tremendous impact on him and has helped him to make the necessary changes in his life that he needed to make. Thanks to Attorney Waldbaum, he will be able to move forward without the added burden of an OUI conviction on his record.

I would recommend Joe to anyone in need of strong representation as it was clear to me that he was knowledgeable of both the complex laws regarding OUI and the process to follow to gain a favorable result.

Signed, an extremely grateful parent, and if needed you can reach me at Dalynews1@gmail.com should you have any questions or doubt about choosing Attorney Waldbaum.
