FRAMINGHAM CASES

RUSS;     781.502.5945 9.20.18; FRAMINGHAM-NATICK
OUI 2ND; NEGLIGENT OPERATION
BAD ACCIDENT, FAILED BLOOD TEST,
NOT GUILTY ALL 4 CHARGES

Client crashed into back of truck, totaled his car, went to hospital. admitted to drinking and failed the blood test. I successfully kept the blood test out of evidence at trial where I argued that although the trooper obtained the contact info of the truck driver, the DA did not summons him so there was absolutely  zero evidence on how the accident happened. The judge agreed.

  1. OUI-2ND: NOT GUILTY
  2. NEGLIGENT OPERATION: NOT GUILTY
  3. SPEEDING: NOT RESPONSIBLE
  4. FOLLOWING TOO CLOSELY: NOT RESPONSIBLE

    ALL FOUR NOT GUILTY VERDICTS

    • 2000:  I proved the stop of his car by police was illegal and the case was thrown out of court.

    FRANCIS;     508.244.0919 9.7.17; FRAMINGHAM-NATICK
    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:

    "They are absolutely awesome, gave me good guidance all the way through the representation, performed professionally at every bend in the road and at trial brought up all the right points. I love them both!"

    'A THOROUGHLY PROFESSIONAL TRIAL PERFORMANCE'
     
    RENATO;     617.337.7121 FRAMINGHAM - NATICK
    SPEEDING 94 MPH
    TOLD COP 'I KNOW I SCREWED UP'
    NOT GUILTY 2ND OFFENSE

    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.'
     
    K.K.;     978.467.5593 FRAMINGHAM-NATICK
    NOT GUILTY: OUI
    NOT GUILTY: CHILD ENDANGERMENT WHILE OUI
    NOT GUILTY: OPEN CONTAINER IN VEHICLE
    NOT GUILTY: LANES VIOLATION

    I had never been arrested before and this was a terrifying situation for me. The DA's office wouldn't reduce the charges despite my clean record so Joe recommended we go to trial. During the year it took, he left no stone unturned in my defense. At trial, he faced an obviously tough and experienced DA, but, boy, did Joe pull through in the clutch:

    A GRAND SLAM
    ACQUITTED OF ALL 4 CHARGES​
     
    MIKE:     781.475.8656 NATICK-FRAMINGHAM
    FAILED BREATH TEST; 2ND OFFENSE
    NOT GUILTY AT TRIAL

    I was arrested for my 2nd offense. The arresting detective said I had very thick and slurred speech and was unsteady on my feet. Plus, I admitted drinking two gin and tonics and one 16 oz. beer shortly before driving. The booking sergeant testified I had red, glassy and bloodshot eyes and in his opinion I was under the influence of alcohol. I even admitted I felt the effects of the alcohol! I took the breath test at the station and failed it over limit. Joe won the case and avoided a two year loss of license and thousands of dollars in fines and fees.

    'JOE WAS RESPONSIVE TO ALL MY QUESTIONS AND HAD A GREAT COURT ROOM PRESENCE.'
     
    DAVE;     860.833.5880 FRAMINGHAM-NATICK
    FELONY CONVICTION AND MANDATORY JAIL AVOIDED

    I was facing my third offense and a mandatory minimum six month jail sentence and felony conviction. At trial, Joe found  defects in the DA's paperwork and avoided both for me. He really knows his stuff.  I didn't even ask him many questions because I felt so comfortable with him every step of the way. It's perfectly OK for prospective clients to call me.

     
    JOE;     781-710-2515 MILFORD & FRAMINGHAM
    MANDATORY JAIL AVOIDED TWICE

    '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. Then, years later, when I was caught driving after suspension for OUI, I was facing a mandatory minimum jail sentence again. That time he talked another DA in another Court into reducing that charge so I only paid a fine.'

    'HE KNOWS ALL THE COURTS AND ALL THE PLAYERS
    AND THEY ALL KNOW HIM.'
     
    JOSEPH:    413-455-7775 FRAMINGHAM - NATICK
    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.

    See judge's order restoring license.

    YOU SHOULD HAVE TOTAL CONFIDENCE IN HIM.'

    JAMES:    617-319-6114 NATICK - FRAMINGHAM
    ALL 3 CHARGES THROWN OUT:
    2ND OFFENSE, OPEN CONTAINER OF ALCOHOL, LANES VIOLATION.

    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:  

    'AFTER THE MOTION TO SUPPRESS, THE COMMONWEALTH HAS INSUFFICIENT EVIDENCE TO PROCEED.'

    MARY:    508 788 9492 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!"
     
    CYNTHIA:     781-244-5105 NATICK - FRAMINGHAM
    "I'M JUST INSANELY GRATEFUL TO YOU.
    YOU REALLY WERE A GREAT DUI ATTORNEY."

    Many, many thanks for your support through it all.; I think had you not done the "Motion to suppress," things could have been quite different. I know that this Thanksgiving will be a better one once you got the DA to reduce my 3rd offense to avoid mandatory jail for me. Please let me know if you ever need a referral to someone who is looking for a great Massachusetts OUI Attorney (phone is fine).

    Kindest regards, Cynthia

    IN 15 MINUTES, JURY FINDS 2ND OFFENDER NEVER "OPERATED" CAR
    My client's girlfriend had been driving the truck and got out after an argument, leaving it in the middle of the road. My client moved over to the driver's seat and promptly fell asleep. On cross examination, I made all 3 officers admit they never actually saw him drive. The Judge had read the police report and said the case was "not triable" due to my client's extreme intoxication. The jury didn't agree: they acquitted him after deliberating less than 15 minutes

    .15 FAILED BREATH TEST CASE THROWN OUT
    FOG LINE NO REASON FOR STOP

    The cop followed Mr. S. one mile and saw him cross the fog line only once. He stopped him and arrested him for OUI. Mr. S blew an over limit.15 at the station, almost twice the legal limit. I advised my client how to fight a DUI: attack the legality of the stop of the car. At my Motion to Dismiss, I gave the Judge cases from 4 other states deciding crossing the fog line is not enough reason to stop a car. The Judge agreed, citing the case I gave him (from Montana!) in his decision.

    Result:   ALL evidence -- field sobriety tests, breath test -- thrown out and case dismissed

    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.

    PROBATION INSTEAD OF ONE YEAR MANDATORY JAIL SENTENCE

    Under Melanie's Law, having been arrested twice in one month for OUI, my client was facing a minimum mandatory jail sentence of ONE FULL YEAR every day of which had to be served. I presented the DA with a "Motion with Exhibits" from the RMV showing his license was suspended not for the prior OUI but for the breath test refusal only.

    Result: DA dropped the minimum mandatory charge on very next Court date

    'JOE DOMINATED THE COURT ROOM AND WALKED ALL OVER THE D.A.'

    I was ready to take the First Offender Deal but after speaking with Joe I was convinced he could win my case. He provided me with valuable advice without ever pushing his opinions on me and scheduled a trial just 6 weeks after my arrest on a date he knew the judge on duty to be the most lenient. When two police officers came instead of one, he quickly reacted with a Motion to Sequester so they couldn't speak and tell each other what they said in the Court room.

    I was found Not Guilty and had my license reinstated the same afternoon.

    Then he followed through and made sure I had all the documents and direction I needed. I recommend him without hesitation. It is so nice to be able to drive again.

    RESPECTED BY ALL IN COURT ROOM- MUCH APPRECIATED SENSE OF HUMOR

    "If you're reading this, chances are you need a great attorney during a hard time -- Joseph is that and more. He's knowledgeable, efficient, extremely responsive and a kind/honest person. I called him on Sunday afternoon and he was there to represent me on Monday less than 24 hours later. For over 6 months, he was there for me on many occasions including going out of his way to obtain police videos and was always so prepared in court. During very stressful times, his presence (which sometimes even included a much appreciated sense of humor) put me at ease. He explained things every step of the way. He's clearly respected by everyone in the courtroom (Judges, DA's etc). C.K., Lynn, MA

    Joe avoided the mandatory jail sentence for my 3rd offense.
    I truly recommend him for his expertise and character."

    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."

    "You did a great job. You’re always right on top of things. I even show your Memoranda to other attorneys and ask them "Why don't you do it like that?'"
