BRAD;     978.590.3847
S. BOSTON
3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED
WHILE 2ND OFFENSE PENDING

"He did everything he said he was going to do. I can't believe he got my license back while the case was still going on so I could drive legally from Haverhill to my job in Boston. Despite the nightmare that were the facts of my case, he was able to reduce my consequences to the absolute minimum.  He truly knows his practice area and I can't recommend him highly enough. Absolutely OK to call me."

BRANDON;     774.994.3136
BOSTON
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.

BOSTON - BRIGHTON
FIRST HE BEATS MY 3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION
THEN GETS ME A NOT GUILTY ON MY 2ND OFFENSE

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.

PLUS, THE JUDGE SUSTAINED ALL HIS OBJECTIONS!

'HE KEPT ME OUT OF JAIL. I'D RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYBODY'

I was in an accident and registered an over limit breath test at the police station, twice the legal limit, in fact. I had two prior OUIs making this my 3rd offense and thus was facing a mandatory minimum six month jail sentence. Joe managed to negotiate a deal for me which included no jail time at all. I don't know how he did it but I'd recommend him to anybody.


JIM:    802 233 2230
S. BOSTON
'HE SEEMED TO BE THE ONLY ONE IN THE COURT ROOM WHO KNEW THE LAW'

“After my drunk driving arrest, I needed help bad. Facing my 2nd offense and my 2nd drug charge, I was sure I was headed for jail but ended up with only a 90 day license loss. It really was something to see you politely informing the Judge and the Court Clerk about the updated laws. Thank you, Joe.”

I can't imagine what might have happened if I didn’t have such a thoroughly prepared Massachusetts OUI attorney.

12.20.16; BOSTON-BROOKLINE

SECOND OFFENSE 3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION LIFTED

Client, a second offender, refused the breathalyzer at the station and was suspended for three full years immediately. This fight must be started within 15 calendar days of the arrest. We directed him how to fight this first at the Registry and then in court. His right to drive was then restored while the case worked its way toward trial thus making client's life much easier.

See docket showing reversal.




BOSTON-ROXBURY​

3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED

After he refused the breath test, the RMV suspended my client's license for 3 years. That meant a 2 hour commute each way every day. I guided him through the process of how to fight this and won.

CLIENT'S THANK YOU NOTE: "Thanks for calling today before court. I can't begin to tell you how much easier my life is now that you got my license back. I am in the process of moving closer to work. Without my license it might have taken another month or 2 since I did all the moving myself and had to depend on friends to drive me and a car full of boxes back and forth. With the license I did it in 3 days."

See judge's order reversing registry.




BOSTON / WEST ROXBURY

FAILED BREATH TEST SUPPRESSED

My client had been in a bad accident, was arrested, took the breathalyzer and registered over limit. After reviewing the test documents, I saw they indicated he had only been observed for 11 minutes before the test, not the 15 that are required. After an extremely hard fought Motion to Suppress Evidence, the judge called for briefs. I submitted an extensive one, along with a transcript of the Hearing. Two months later, the Judge ruled in our favor: the breathalyzer evidence was excluded.

See judge's order suppressing breath test.




E. BOSTON

CLIENT SAVED ONE YEAR MANDATORY MINIMUM JAIL SENTENCE

My client was charged as a third offender which carries a six month jail term. However, his license had already been suspended for two other OUIs. Then the DA added the dreaded new charge under Melanie's Law of 'OUI after Suspension for OUI.' This carries a mandatory minimum one year sentence which must be served only AFTER all other sentences are completed. Thus, he was looking at an absolute minimum 18 months in jail.

After my negotiations with the DA, I got her to drop the one year mandatory minimum sentence in exchange for a six month jail sentence thus saving him one year in jail.




BOSTON - DORCHESTER

LIFETIME DRIVING SUSPENSION OVERTURNED

My client had his Massachusetts driver's license suspended for life for refusing the breathalyzer test on his most recent arrest. I researched the paperwork on his prior cases from 30 years ago and made copies. I brought him before the Board of Appeals and argued that the handwritten dispositions were ambiguous, at best, and he deserved the benefit of the doubt. The Board ruled in our favor, reversing the lifetime suspension and reducing it to just five years. He now will be able to get licensed again.




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.

See judge's order restoring license.

NO FINES, NO 5 YEAR LICENSE LOSS, NO BREATHALYZER IN HER CAR, NO PROBATION

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.




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.




BOSTON- BOARD of APPEALS:

5 YEAR SUSPENSION REDUCED BY 4 1/2 YEARS

Client, a third offender, had been suspended for five years for refusing the breath test. Utilizing a loophole I found in Melanie’s Law, I appealed his suspension to the Board of Appeals in Boston and convinced the three member Board this was an error. They agreed.

This saved him four and one half years without a license and $5400 in ignition interlock fees.

'A DISTRICT ATTORNEY RECOMMENDED I HIRE YOU'

Now I know I hired the right person for my second offense. I spoke with a friend of mine who is an Assistant District Attorney in Norfolk County. She spoke very highly of you and was very glad I had hired you and not another Attorney. You beat her twice but she still wanted to say hello.




BOSTON MUNICIPAL COURT


'YOU DO GREAT WORK FOR PEOPLE WHO'VE MADE MISTAKES'

On top of all you did for me in the court room, the fact that you continually checked in with the RMV after my final court date was unbelievable This was a hard, emotionally taxing period for me, and the services you provided were top notch. Plus I reached you on a Sunday via cell and how quickly you got me out of court on the first date when I had my fire fighter physical at 1 pm, and all the hard work you put in is a blessing. I will never be able to thank you enough. I thought all was lost for me reaching my life goal of becoming a fire fighter, all the years of hard work gone out the window, and you made it possible for me to keep that dream alive. I hope to see you again but this time outside of a courtroom. All the best to you and your family.

'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!

NO $1400 FINE FOR SPEEDING 120 MPH IN 45 MPH ZONE

OK to email us at Zile6@aol.com

"I couldn't believe how quickly you returned all our calls and e-mails. I have nothing but the highest praise for how you handled my husband's speeding case. You were extremely conscientious, professional, and supportive. The circumstances surrounding his arrest were far from in his favor, yet somehow you managed to get it resolved favorably. Please feel free to post any of the above information on your website."

I recommend Joe to anyone looking for a solid, knowledgeable (not to mention personable) lawyer.

"I'M GLAD I DIDN'T TRY TO DO THIS BY MYSELF"

I was arrested Friday and had to be in Court Monday. I called Joe Saturday, he immediately answered, sent me an email with a map to the Court house, where to go, what to say and then met me there as well. Afterwards, he guided me through the process of getting my work license quickly and I am now driving again. Although I consider myself a smart guy, I am very glad I didn’t try to do this by myself.





BOSTON-CHARLESTOWN

Attorney Waldbaum,

A short note to thank you once again for the very professional job you have done handling our son's case. We particularly appreciate your readiness to take the case in a very short notice and working during the weekend to get everything ready for a Monday morning court appearance. We are very pleased with the outcome given the severity of the evidence against him.

Kind regards,

Jorge and Nidia S.




BOSTON; 'IT WAS LIKE GOD COMING TO THE RESCUE'

I live in New York and my daughter lives in Medford, MA. Like most parents I felt awful when I received the call that she was arrested and charged with DUI. This caused hardship in our family and I didn't know what to do. Fortunately my wife found Joe Waldbaum on the internet and it was like God coming to the rescue. He immediately put us at ease and explained the best way to handle this. It was a very complicated case and he handled it to perfection. My wife, my daughter, and I could not have been more satisfied. On a scale of one to ten we give Mr. Waldbaum an eleven.
