SPEEDING CASE WINS

HILLARY;     478-461-3305
WOBURN
"HE'S PREPARED, LIKABLE, AND CHARISMATIC"
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 OUI 2ND OFFENSE
NOT GUILTY NEGLIGENT OPERATION DESPITE SPEEDING 88 MPH
+
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.

TOLD COP 'I KNOW I SCREWED UP'
2ND OFFENSE - SPEEDING 94 MPH
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.

'I'M GRATEFUL BEYOND WORDS.
JOE WAS MUCH BETTER THAN THE DA.'

NOT GUILTY DESPITE SPEEDING 90 MPH

Client was measured by radar at 90 mph, had strong odor of alcohol, bloodshot, glassy eyes, admitted  drinking from 2 pm to 830 pm and could not recite alphabet correctly. On cross exam, trooper admitted speeding is not a recognized indicator of OUI, he committed no other moving violations in a 2.5 mile stretch and though he said client put his foot down "several times" during the one leg stand and walked "off the line" during the walk and turn test, neither of those observations had been recorded in his report.


JASON;     508.737.7752
WOBURN
FAILED BREATH TEST - SPEEDING 83 IN 50 MPH ZONE
NOT GUILTY - 2ND OFFENSE

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.

THEN GETS MY LICENSE BACK

'It was really something to watch Joe argue his pretrial motions. He  was very clever and kept out lots of bad facts.  During a 2-day trial, when everybody went to lunch, he stayed at the defense table preparing his cross exam of the cop who said I almost hit a guardrail, had slurred speech and admitted drinking. 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"

2ND OFFENSE DISMISSED;
SPEEDING DISMISSED; LICENSE ORDERED RESTORED

I was caught driving 20 mph over the limit, admitted to a few drinks and was arrested for my 2nd offense.  I refused the breath test and lost my license for 3  years.  Once I read about all the people Atty. W. helped and called him, he immediately put me at ease. When the Trooper didn't show up for a pretrial Hearing, he had a Motion ready to dismiss my case and another to restore my license.  The judge agreed with both.

NOT GUILTY 3RD OFFENSE
DESPITE FAILED BREATH TEST (.11)

Client was seen by cop speeding 26 mph over limit and crossing centerline. Officer testififed he had bloodshot and glassy eyes, slurred speech and failed all three field sobriety tests. Once retained,  I Iimmediately filed a motion to preserve the booking video which proved crucial at trial. I also successfully got the breath test thrown out of court.

CLIENT'S COMMENTS:

Joe is absolutely awesome. He gave me good guidance all the way through the representation. He performed professionally at every bend in the road and at trial he brought up all the right points.  I love him!

NOT GUILTY - LICENSE RESTORED SAME DAY

I was pulled over at 1 AM by the Newburyport MA police. At trial, the officer testified I had a strong odor of alcohol on my breath, glassy eyes and a "blotchy face" that was consistent with the use of alcohol. I hired Joe after reading his website and couldn't be happier. He obviously knew the court and the players and got me to trial in record time. Once acquitted, he had the Motion to restore my license drawn up and convinced the judge to do so the very same day despite my driving history of speeding tickets.

NOT GUILTY 2ND OFFENSE
JUST 4 MONTHS AFTER ARREST

I was arrested for my 2nd offense and speeding 61 mph in a 40 zone. I admitted drinking three beers, taking Adderall and that I felt the effects of the alcohol. 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.

OUI CHARGE THROWN OUT OF COURT.
"HE GOT THE LAW ON MY SIDE OVER 2 STATE TROOPERS!"

I was stopped for speeding and a bunch of cops showed up. I was extremely nervous and they said I failed all the field sobriety tests. Joe was in Court for me the very next day AND the next three Court dates which greatly relieved my anxiety. He educated me about the process and was at all times helpful, professional and responsive. 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 OUI charge against me was dismissed and my license was restored immediately.

A GRAND SLAM! JOE BEATS ALL FOUR CHARGES

I was charged with DUI 2nd offense. I was speeding 20 mph over the speed limit and committed lanes violations. 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:

OUI 2nd Offense: Not Guilty
Negligent Operation: Dismissed
Speeding: Not Responsible
Lanes Violation: Not Responsible
No convictions, no fines, no probation, no license loss,
no breathalyzer in my car.


WALTHAM

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.




LAWRENCE

RUNS RED LIGHT, DRIVES OVER LAWN, HITS GUARDRAIL: NOT GUILTY OUI

Before the accident, client was seen speeding 20 mph over the limit and weaving in and out of traffic. Cop followed him and saw him run a red light and shut off his headlights as he entered a residential section. The cop then found him after he had driven over a lawn and hit a guardrail. He testified he was unsteady on his feet, smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot and glassy eyes, slurred speech and many open containers of alcohol in the vehicle. Verdict: Not Guilty of OUI




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.




WORCESTER

OUI CHARGES DISMISSED

My client had been arrested for speeding and OUI. On the day of Trial, the cop did not appear. The DA simply wanted to re-schedule trial for another date. I asked the Judge to inquire if the cop had ever actually even been summonsed by the DA's office. The DA sheepishly admitted he had not. I then made a Motion to Dismiss for lack of prosecution. The Judge granted the Motion. Case dismissed.




WESTBORO

91 MPH AND .16 FAILED BREATH TEST: 4 OF 5 CHARGES DROPPED

Clocked by radar speeding and tailgating at 91 mph. my client blew an over limit .16 and an .18. With 5 infractions already on his license, if responsible on all 5 of the new charges, he would have triggered an additional 60 day suspension for which no work license is available and lost his job. I negotiated a plea deal where 4 charges were dropped outright. Result, the additional 60 day suspension was not triggered; he got a work license and kept his job.




E. BROOKFIELD

4 OF 6 CHARGES DROPPED ON 1ST COURT DATE & GETS WORK LICENSE

He was charged with OUI; Reckless Driving; Speeding; Open Container of alcohol in vehicle and 2 additional moving violations. Despite a criminal record, I arranged a deal where four of the charges were dropped outright on the first Court date, allowing him to get a work license three days later. His driving record was so bad that if he was found responsible of even one additional charge he would have had no chance for a work license.




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




AYER

FACING THIRD OFFENSE, ENDS UP WITH HARDSHIP LICENSE

My client was stopped for speeding and charged with her 3rd offense. Before appearing in Court, I went to the RMV and obtained her complete driving history all the way back to the beginning. After presenting it to the Judge, I was able to convince him that one of her priors was an error and since the other was over ten years old, she was entitled to be treated as a first offender all over again. Instead of mandatory jail, she was able to get a hardship license immediately.




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



WRENTHAM

ALMOST HITS COP CAR, ADMITS TO 4 DRINKS:
NOT GUILTY

A single mom went speeding out of a night club parking lot and almost hit a police car. After being pulled over, she admitted to the officer she had four drinks. At trial, we admitted her medical records showing a back condition explained the unsteadiness on her feet and difficulty exiting the car. Result: Not Guilty after trial. Plus, she was found 'not responsible' on the charge of 'Failure to Yield at an Intersection' after I presented the Judge with a Supreme Judicial Court case deciding an intersection is the crossing of 2 streets (not a parking lot and a street).




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.)




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.

"ARTICULATE, RUTHLESS DEFENDER, NEVER MISSED A BEAT IN THE COURTROOM"

"Thank you for giving me my life back with the not guilty on the OUI after the cop caught me speeding. You are magnificent in the courtroom and it is easy to see that this comes from your hard work and dedication outside. You are the most passionate and articulate lawyer I have ever met. Your attention to detail and high motivation kept you ten steps in front of the DA at all times. This, combined with the respect and professionalism you show towards everyone in court makes you a most effective defender. I will continue to recommend you to anyone in need of a Mass DUI Lawyer."

Sincerely, M,B.

‘HE WAS FAR MORE INTELLIGENT THAN ALL THE OTHER ATTORNEYS I SPOKE TO’

I was clocked speeding 100 mph in a 40 mph zone and searched the Internet for lawyers. In addition to his fine website, Joe called me right back and gave me more valuable information – much more of it – than all the other attorneys I spoke with combined. Hiring him was a no-brainer.

He cleared me of doing 100 in a 40 mph zone
which saved me over $600 in fines!



NATICK - FRAMINGHAM


NOT GUILTY LESS THAN 2 MONTHS AFTER ARREST

"After being arrested for OUI and speeding, I wanted to fight it and ran an Internet search to find lawyers that specialize. I interviewed several but none of them seemed as confident as Joe. He got me to Trial in less than two months, which was unheard of by any other lawyer I spoke with. I was found Not Guilty allowing my license to be restored immediately. Because of Joe, I was able to put this situation behind me quickly."
