REFUSAL SUSPENSION WINS

3RD OFFENSE - 5 YR REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED
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.

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.

3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED

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.

3 YEAR MA REFUSAL SUSPENSION OVERTURNED

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.

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 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.

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.

'You didn't yes me to death like other OUI lawyers I spoke to or give me false hopes we'd beat the case. You actually told me it'd be a hard case to win and presented the worst case scenarios too. I couldn't believe it when you got my license back a few weeks after I refused the Breathalyzer. Instead of suffering through 3 years with no license, I was driving to and from Court legally while the case took 16 months. During trial, you had an answer for everything and even made the DA look silly. Plus you continued working at the defense table when everybody else went out to lunch! It was like watching something out of a movie. I can't thank you enough, Joe.'

I didn't know I lost my license for 3 years for refusing the breathalyzer until I got the letter from the RMV. Joe said fight this tooth and nail since we only had 15 days to do so. 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.

The RMV issued a three year long license suspension.  I thought my license was simply gone for three full years and the whole thing was hopeless. But Joe obviously knows this practice area better than anyone else. He actually drove out to my house to bring me the order giving me back my license. How many lawyers would do that?

After talking to him the first time, I knew I was in good hands. Joe is very professional, confident and knows Massachusetts drunk driving defense like the back of his hand.  After I lost my license for three full years for not taking the breathalyzer, Joe filed a civil suit against the RMV. He was very organized and aggressive in court. The judge gave my license back immediately after the hearing! That allowed me to drive legally during the months it took to go to Trial.  At Trial, he was completely prepared for the cross exam of all the officers and got me a not guilty. He saved me my job and precious time with my kids.

I also admitted to one drink per hour for several hours but Joe got that statement thrown out at his pretrial motion to suppress evidence. There were 3 cops and 3 cruisers. They smelled alcohol, said I couldn't walk the line and was unsteady on my feet. At trial, Joe pointed out the inconsistencies in 2 of the officer's stories and showed the cruiser and booking videos to the jury to contradict their testimony. After deliberating over 2 days, they found me not guilty and the judge then immediately restored my license saving me the rest of the three year refusal suspension.

'I first read about Attorney Waldbaum in a newspaper article. After I called, he reduced my 5 year refusal suspension to just 6 months. Then he talked the DA's office into reducing my 3rd offense to just a 2nd so I avoided a mandatory jail sentence.

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:

Plus, there are only 15 days to fight this. I guided him through the complex process of fighting this first at the Boston RMV and then via an Appeal in the court. There, the judge overturned his three year suspension saving him 3 full years with no license.

3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED

This saved him three full years with no license whatsoever because no hardship license is available during the refusal suspension.

When the cop didn't show on the Motions date, I argued to the Judge that the Officer had an obligation to the Court itself and didn't fulfill it. The Judge agreed and dismissed the charges.

After that, I handed the Judge an Order to sign restoring my client's license despite the 3 year loss from the RMV for refusing the Breath test. He signed that too and my client's license was restored the same day.

Result: no 5 year license loss and full privilege license immediately restored

8 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION REDUCED TO 45 DAYS

Client had received an eight year license suspension of his driving license from the Registry of Motor Vehicles based on their 1978 records showing him to have faced a 3rd offense. I researched the old charge and discovered Probation records which showed his guilty finding was revoked later that year but never reported to the RMV. I presented these in a Memorandum with Exhibits to the three member Board and argued for the immediate restoration of his full privilege license.

The Board agreed and restored his license the same day.

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.

A second offender refused the breath test and the RMV suspended him for 3 years. After an RMV Hearing, we then appealed to a District Court Judge using reasoning based on a recent Superior Court decision. The Judge agreed with my argument, finding that the RMV had ‘exceeded its statutory and constitutional authority.’

RESULT:  The Judge ordered his license restored immediately.

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.

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.

MILFORD - WORCESTER

NOT GUILTY: 3RD OFFENSE
5 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION ORDERED REVERSED

Client was facing his third offense, a mandatory jail sentence of six months to two and one half years plus a five year refusal suspension. After considerable effort during discovery, I obtained the booking video from the Police Department. At trial, I was able to show the Judge how he was able to remove his belt and jewelry with no problems, thus showing he retained fine motor skills and there were no signs of swaying or unsteadiness during the 30 minute video. I argued this created the requisite reasonable doubt. The Judge agreed. Then, at a subsequent Hearing, the judge ordered his license fully restored.




BARNSTABLE

FIVE YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED

Facing his 3rd offense, client had refused to take the breath test and suffered a five year license suspension. I prepared an Affidavit and Memorandum for a Hearing at the Boston RMV claiming that his refusal had not been witnessed properly on the required "Statutory Rights and Consent Form." When the RMV denied our claim, I appealed it to District Court and convinced the Judge otherwise.

The Judge found the RMV "made an erroneous interpretation of the law and exceeded its constitutional authority."



NEWTON

THREE YEAR RMV LICENSE REFUSAL SUSPENSION OVERTURNED IN COURT

In a bad accident, my client lost control of the car, struck a traffic signal, crossed the center line and ended up in the opposite lane of travel with heavy front end damage. The RMV then suspended him for three years for refusing the breath test. I then appealed the license suspension to a Judge in District Court and convinced the Judge to reverse his suspension so he got his license back while the case was still going on.

The Judge ruled the RMV "acted in an arbitrary and capricious manner."



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.




5.28.15; WOBURN

RMV REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED

My client suffered a 180 day license suspension for the breathalyzer refusal. She needed to be able to drive to continue her job as an EMT. We instructed her exactly how to challenge this suspension at the Boston RMV within 15 days of her arrest. We then appealed the RMV denial to a judge in Court who lifted the refusal suspension.

See order reversing registry.




CLINTON

3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION OVERTURNED

Client was a second offender and refused to take the breathalyzer test when he got to the police station. Because of his refusal, the RMV suspended him for three full years. I appealed the RMV's decision to a judge in Court and convinced the judge to restore the client's license. This saved him three full years with no license whatsoever because no hardship license is available during the refusal suspension.

See judge's order restoring license.




10-15-15; FALMOUTH

3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED

Client was arrested for his second DUI offense and refused to take the breathalyzer when he reached the police station. The RMV suspended him immediately for three full years. We guided him through the complex process of fighting this at the Registry which must begin within fifteen calendar days of arrest. We then appealed it to a judge in court who restored his license after a court hearing. He was then able to drive legally while the case was still pending.

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.

See judge's order restoring license.




TAUNTON - BOARD OF APPEALS

3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION REDUCED TO 180 DAYS ON SECOND OFFENSE

My client had been charged with her 2nd offense. The Registry of Motor Vehicles suspended her for a full three years for refusing the breath test. I brought the case up to the Board of Appeals in Boston and convinced them to reduce her refusal suspension by a full two and one half years.




DUDLEY - E. BROOKFIELD

NOT GUILTY 3RD OFFENSE DUE TO ODOR OF SOLVENTS

My client was stopped for a minor lanes violation and charged with his 3rd offense, thus facing mandatory jail time and a thirteen year license loss. He had been working in a small bathroom all day using solvents to remove floor tile. His clothes reeked of this and caused his breath to mimic the smell of alcohol. I called the homeowner for whom he had been working to testify at trial to verify these unusual facts. The Judge gave us a "directed verdict" of not guilty. Plus, he then reversed client's five year refusal suspension so he got his license back.




BROCKTON

BREATHALYZER REFUSAL OVERTURNED

An out of state resident volunteered to take the Breathalyzer but, due to her asthma, could not produce enough air to get a reading. The police hit her with a refusal suspension, resulting in a 180 day suspension in Massachusetts (and an even longer one in her home state). I asked her doctor to write a letter, presented it with my 10-page petition to the RMV and, after a 30 second Hearing, her right to drive in Massachusetts was reinstated.

BOSTON


'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!

WORCESTER - UXBRIDGE


JOE WALDBAUM WORKS MIRACLES AS A MASSACHUSETTS DUI ATTORNEY!

"My husband was stopped for his 2nd offense, refused the breathalyzer and automatically suffered a three year refusal suspension. Mr. Waldbaum worked tirelessly. He went to Court, filed and argued Motions, gave us expert advice, visited the scene of the arrest himself, took photos and shot a video. All this resulted in a "not guilty." My husband's license was fully reinstated. We now have our life back. Thank you again, Joe."
