NEWBURYPORT CASES

SAM;     978.835.6217 9.12.18; NEWBURYPORT-IPSWICH
FAILED BREATH TEST [.15]
SPEEDING, 2nd OFFENSE
JURY: NOT GUILTY IN 10 MINUTES

Client was stopped for speeding, failed the field tests and blew twice the legal limit. I stressed that he committed no lanes violations, promptly signaled when cop's blue lights went on, pulled over safely into safe area, no difficulty finding wallet and extracting license or finding registration in glove box, no difficulty exiting car or walking to rear. Jury acquitted him in 10 minutes.

'JOE WAS THROUGHLY FLAWLESS AND PROFESSIONAL'
 
ELIJAH;     978.490.0514 5.8.18; IPSWICH-NEWBURYPORT
FAILED BREATH TEST
JOE USED BODY CAM FOOTAGE
NOT GUILTY 1ST OFFENSE

I crossed over the centerline and cop stopped me. I admitted to drinking and smoking marijuana and they found a pipe and pot in the center console. Two cops testified I failed all the field tests. Joe made sure to preserve the body cam footage. It showed both cops were wearing heavy winter clothing, hats and gloves and I had on only a sweat shirt and no gloves in freezing weather. Plus it showed i didn't do as bad on the tests as they said. 

Joe was very patient with our questions and answered them all.

JOE IS VERY CONFIDENT
AND A GREAT PUBLIC SPEAKER
 
MITCH;     781.929.9509 4.10.18; HAVERHILL-NEWBURYPORT
COP TESTIFIED I SAID
"I'M DRUNK"
JURY: NOT GUILTY 3RD OFFENSE

First day in court, Joe reduces my bail by $3000. Then he beats my 5 year refusal suspension at the RMV. At jury trial, he convinced the jurors not to believe the cop who testifed I said "I know I was speeding and I know I'm drunk." If they had believed him, it meant a felony conviction, mandatory jail time, the loss of my job of 33 years and my pension. I knew as soon as I spoke to him on the phone he was the real deal.

'HE'S THE REAL DEAL. ONE HELL OF A LAWYER'
 
CRAIG;     603.391.6646 NEWBURYPORT
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.

See acquittal + license restored.

NOT GUILTY- ROAD BLOCK

"I was stopped at a roadblock and told the troopers I had been drinking 3 beers. They made me get out and do field sobriety tests. I was so nervous I didn't do very well and they arrested me. I looked at online videos of lawyers but Joe presented himself the best and was the most professional. I definitely made the right choice: he guided me through the whole overwhelming court process and made all the right calls and got me acquitted.  I was fully satisfied with Joe as my lawyer."

'I AM HAPPY TO SPEAK TO ANYONE
WHO CALLS ME ABOUT JOE.'
 
T.L.:     978.979.5184 NEWBURYPORT-IPSWICH
NOT GUILTY ALL 3 CHARGES
'THE MOST CAPABLE OUI LAWYER IN MASSACHUSETTS'

At my jury trial, two cops testified that I had a strong odor of alcohol, slurred speech, and glassy bloodshot eyes. The arresting officer said I was "swaying in my lane" for over a mile but as, Joe dramatically pointed out in Court, she hadn't written that in her report. He then demonstrated the field sobriety tests in front of the jury box to show how hard they are and how well I had performed at 2 AM. He took care of everything from soup to nuts.  After the Not Guilty verdict, he even was able to convince the Judge to restore my license immediately.

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.

'JOE WAS A MAJOR HELP FROM DAY ONE'

JOE BEAT JAIL FOR ME IN 2 COURTS IN 1 DAY!
(DESPITE A .28 FAILED BREATH TEST)

I was still on Probation for OUI-1st in Salem when I was arrested for OUI 2nd Offense in Ipswich and registered an over limit .28. My Salem Probation Officer issued a Warrant for my arrest and asked that I be placed into custody when I got to Newburyport.  The DA in Newburyport was asking for jail also.  Joe managed to talk the judge out of having me taken into custody AND of sending me to jail for my 2nd offense.  Instead, the Judge actually released me into Joe's custody. Then when we went to Salem later that day, my Probation officer was asking for a one year jail sentence on my first offense. Joe convinced the Salem Judge not to do so and I went home that night instead of to jail. Joe is the most intimidating and confident lawyer I have ever encountered and I was blessed to have him on my side. 

"HE WALKED INTO BOTH COURTS LIKE HE PAID THE MORTGAGE!
YOU WANT HIM AS YOUR OUI LAWYER"

JURY ACQUITS SECOND OFFENDER IN 15 MINUTES
My client was arrested for his 2nd offense while riding his motorcycle. I argued to the jury that driving a two wheeled vehicle requires a finer sense of balance than driving a four wheeled one. Also, dismounting requires raising one leg up very high and he was able to do so with no difficulties or unsteadiness. The Sergeant testified he had him walk an imaginary line heel to toe so I asked him "How wide was that imaginary line?" As he stammered to answer, the jury got the point. They came back with a not guilty in 15 minutes.
 
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.)

'WHEN THE JUDGE READ THE VERDICT, MY MOUTH DROPPED!'

Dear Attorney Waldbaum,

Thank you so much for taking my case and working it as you did. I am
truly pleased with the outcome. After hearing the District Attorney go on for it seemed like a lifetime... I was resolved to the fact that I was going to be charged with a felony. But when the Judge read the verdict, my mouth dropped. I wasn't sure I heard it right, but I guess I did. I hope I showed you appreciation outside the courtroom. I was just so elated I wasn't sure I had. Thank you again for everything!

John W.

MY LIFE CHANGED SO MUCH FROM 2 SIMPLE WORDS: NOT GUILTY

"In my field, having a license is the most important asset. Without it, I wouldn't be working for a news station now (or any news station for years to come). You met me at the site of the arrest on a Sunday morning, made a video and took photos and used them all at my Jury Trial. Your hard work and determination paid off ."

We had no idea whom to call legally. But with your expertise we were able to close the case within a two month period at no extra cost than you promised. We are so pleased with your expertise, it would be our great pleasure to recommend you to friends, family, and strangers alike.

'IMPRESSED BY YOUR KNOWLEDGE AND FRANKNESS ON THE PHONE'

Hi Joseph,

I spoke with you earlier on the phone today looking for Massachusetts drunk driving defense. Thank you for your time and help. I was so impressed by you and your knowledge and frankness on the phone, and after reading the countless testimonials from your previous clients I would like to hire you if you would be so willing to help me in my case.
Thanks.

 
5.8.18; NEWBURYPORT-IPSWICH

My son was arrested for OUI and we were considering a CWOF. The arresting officer was very convincing when we picked him up that that was the way to go. We hired attorney Waldbaum and he took the time to answer our many questions and met with us to view the badge-cam video. We then decided to move forward with a trial. Again Attorney Walbaum was very patient and accommodating with our questions and concerns. My son was found not guilty of the OUI and two other violations, saving us over $5000 in fees and surcharges. We can't thank him enough! Do not hesitate to hire him.
