2000: He proved the stop of my car by police was illegal and the case was thrown out of court.
2013: He demonstrated the accident was not my fault and won a not guilty after jury trial.
2016: I ran a red light and 3 cops were involved but Joe showed it was the cop's first OUI arrest ever and won a not guilty after a judge trial.
2018: I left scene of a minor accident, was caught speeding with a strong odor of alcohol: Not guilty of both OUI and speeding

NOT GUILTY 2ND OFFENSE
'JOE IS SUPREMELY PREPARED, PROFESSIONAL AND ORGANIZED'
Damian was stopped for straddling lines and admitted to 4 beers. He had a strong odor of alcohol, glassy, bloodshot eyes and could not stand on one leg more than 5 seconds in 2 tries. I stressed to the jury he had no trouble producing his license and registration, exiting the car and walking perfectly normally to where the field sobriety tests were done. Though it was midnight, the cop never asked him if he had worked all day, was tired or nervous. After the not guilty jury verdict, I convinced the judge to restore his license immediately.
HE BEAT MY 2 OUI CASES 10 YEARS APART ONE WITH A BAD ACCIDENT
In '03, he won a motion to suppress the stop of my car so all evidence was thrown out and the case was dropped. In '13, I was in a bad collision and both vehicles were totaled. At jury trial, the cop testified I had slurred speech, swayed and admitted drinking 3 beers [but a six pack missing 5 beers was found in my truck]. Joe got all my statements after Miranda thrown out, convinced the jury the accident wasn't my fault and asked them to consider why the cops never made a video of me with their cameras at the station or the cell phones in their pockets. Pretty smart. Not guilty!
'HE ASKED THE JURY WHY COPS NEVER MADE A VIDEO AT THE STATION OR USED THE CELL PHONES IN THEIR POCKETS'
NO CONVICTIONS ON ANY OF CHARGES
My client was seen by an officer commit lanes violations and was stopped. He had alcohol on his breath, slurred speech, his insurance had expired and he did poorly on the field sobriety tests. At the bench trial, I convinced the judge other factors were likely to be just as responsible for his performance (nervousness, lateness of the hour, weather conditions) and thus the DA had not proven beyond all reasonable doubt impairment by alcohol. He was not convicted of any of the charges.
MOTION TO SUPPRESS ALL EVIDENCE GRANTED
Westborough Police radioed that my client was driving into Marlborough possibly intoxicated. A Marlborough cop received the call, followed my client's car 1/4 mile, then stopped and arrested him. At my Motion to Suppress, I cross examined the officer who admitted my client had not committed a single traffic infraction, had signaled a turn properly and shown no evidence of erratic driving whatever. The (prosecution oriented) Judge suppressed the entire motor vehicle stop and all evidence obtained thereafter including three field sobriety tests, observations of the officer and all statements my client made — in other words: their entire case. The charges were completely dismissed on the day of trial.
"PROMPT, COURTEOUS, CARING AND DIRECT"
To whom it may concern:
This letter is written to express my deepest gratitude and utmost respect for Joseph Waldbaum. Mr. Waldbaum displays the highest level of proficiency and knowledge in his line of work. He is prompt, courteous, caring and direct. In times when one needs guidance in a situation that may have serious consequences, his professional standard is unequivocally supreme.
"Joe first avoided a mandatory jail term for me as a third offender but the RMV suspended my license for eight full years. However, he followed up at the Board of Appeals and convinced them to give it back to me six years early. I can't recommend him highly enough. He's a magician."

'FACING A 12 YEAR SUSPENSION, HE GOT ME A WORK LICENSE IN JUST 2 MONTHS. JOE IS WORTH EVERY PENNY YOU PAY HIM''
Don't even bother talking to another OUI lawyer. My wife and I can't express how grateful we are to Joe: he saved my freedom and our livelihood. I had one prior OUI conviction and 3 others where I'd gotten off. The RMV had suspended me for 10 years. Joe found a Judge he said might treat me as a first offender again. Just as he predicted, the Judge did so.
"I HAVE BEEN A PROBATION OFFICER FOR 25 YEARS AND HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYONE GET OFF LIKE YOU DID"
"I was pulled over on July 1, called Joe on July 2, he was in Court on July 3 and had already gone to the Registry to get my driving record. That allowed us to settle the case the very first day. I had all moving violations dropped, he saved me 28 days without a license on the RMV breathalyzer suspension and I am now driving again. The whole Probation Office was stunned."
