LANE VIOLATION WINS:

MIKE;      2-12-19; GLOUCESTER & PEABODY
NOT GUILTY 1ST OFFENSE
FAILED BREATH TEST
AND MULTIPLE LANES VIOLATIONS

Client crossed the centerline and cop car had to swerve to avoid collision. Then he ran stop sign and almost hit the median barrier. At trial, cop said his speech was slurred and that he failed a couple of field tests.  I pointed out to the judge he walked 9 steps out and 9 steps back without losing his balance and passed one of the tests with flying colors. Judge agreed. Not guilty.

'JOE IS A VERY LIKABLE LAWYER.'
 
JAIRO;     781.715.9233 LAWRENCE
NOT GUILTY 2ND OFFENSE
NOT RESPONSIBLE LANES VIOLATIONS
LICENSE RESTORED

Cop followed client for one mile and saw him swerving back and forth and pulled him over. He testifed he failed the field tests and arrested him. On the stand, I got the trooper to admit at trial:

  • he never actually crossed any lines, 
  • he pulled over promptly and safely, 
  • into a safe area
  • not blocking traffic
  • produced his license and registration with no difficulty, 
  • had no slurred speech and 
  • kept his foot up and counted correctly for the full test. 

Not guilty. 3 year refusal suspension ordered lifted and license restored.

KEVIN;     978. 235.2853 CLINTON, FITCHBURG
TOLD COP I HAD "4 BEERS AND A MAI TAI"
HE SAW 3 LANES VIOLATIONS
NOT GUILTY 2ND OFFENSE - LICENSE RESTORED

Cop saw 3 lanes violations, testified client had slurred speech, bloodshot, glassy eyes, first said he had "4 beers," then later "4 beers and a Mai Tai." I got cop to admit client had no difficulty finding and delivering his license and registration, thus his fine motor skills were normal. Plus he had no difficulty exiting the car and walked fine. After the not guilty verdict, I convinced Judge to restore his license which had been suspended for 3 years for refusing the breath test.

STEPAN:     617-921-9707 CAMBRIDGE
FAILED BREATH TEST; 3 LANES VIOLATIONS:
NOT GUILTY

The Cambridge officer wrote he saw me cross the center line 3 times, that my speech was slurred, my eyes glassy and bloodshot and that I told him I had two shots and two drinks. Then when he arrested me, he wrote I told my friend "I might be too drunk to remember your phone number." Joe knew Massachusetts drunk driving defense, the Court and the players. He worked tirelessly to keep the over limit breath test out --which he did-- and to get me acquitted.

"CALL ME AND I'LL TELL YOU MYSELF:
JOE CARES ABOUT HIS CLIENTS!"

BERT;     860.306.0107 5.30.19; NATICK-FRAMINGHAM
FAILED BREATH TEST; NOT GUILTY

Trooper saw Bert cross marked lines 5 times and stopped him. He wrote that  Bert had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and a strong odor of alcohol. Bert also told the officer he had his last drink one hour before the stop.  He was arrested after doing the field sobriety tests.  At the barracks he took the breathalyzer test and failed it. At trial, we argued that he was able to produce both documents without issue showing nothng worng with his fine motor skills and that he exited the car perfectly normally and walked perfectly normally creating the necesary reasonable doubt. Judge found him not guilty.  He was also found not resposiible  of failure to signal and the marked lanes violations.

SEAN;     857.249.2130 UXBRIDGE
FAILED BREATH TEST [.21]
SPEEDING, 2ND OFFENSE
NOT GUILTY

Two officers testified client was seen speeding on a curving road, had a strong odor of alcohol, slurred speech, and stopped reciting the alphabet at Q instead of going to Z. I argued he committed no lanes violations, pulled over promptly when the officer's blue lights went on, was cooperative at all times and it was well past 1 AM when no one is at their mental or physical best.  Not guilty.

SAM;     978.835.6217 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.

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.

JOSEPH:    508 365 7475 E. HAMPSHIRE - BELCHERTOWN
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.
 
PETER:    617 880 9060 SOMERVILLE
"MY WIFE SAID JOE COULDN'T WIN IT.
BOY, WAS SHE WRONG!"
NOT GUILTY 1ST OFFENSE

Trooper saw me commit multiple lanes violations and blow through a Yield sign without slowing down. Then he testified I had slurred speech and had difficulty getting my registration out of the glove box, was unsteady on my feet exiting the car and had an ‘overwhelming odor of alcohol’ on my breath. After seeing the Police Report, my wife didn't think he could win it but Joe told me to try the case anyway. He was reassuring at all times and both amazing and incredible at Trial.

I got my license ordered restored the same day the Judge found me Not Guilty
 
WESTBORO; 10.21.19
FAILED BREATH TEST, 2 LANES VIOLATIONS
2 OPEN CONTAINERS
NOT GUILTY AT TRIAL

Client was seen to drift from one side of the road to the other then back again, He failed the  walk and turn test and 2 open beer bottles were found in his door, still cold to the touch. He then failed the breath test at the station as well. At trial, judge allowed my motion to exlcude any testimony about the beer cans and then acquitted him after trial. 

OK to call client to verify: James 508.688.9122​
 
MARLBORO
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.
 
LEOMINSTER - FITCHBURG
3RD OFFENSE REDUCED TO 2ND- NO JAIL TIME
My client was facing his third offense and a mandatory jail sentence of six months minimum after crossing the center line and committing multiple lanes violations. The officer noted in his report that client could barely stand when he got out of his pickup truck. On the date of trial, I convinced the district attorney to reduce the charge from third offense - a felony -- down to second offense -- only a misdemeanor. Thus, I saved my client from a felony conviction and the concomitant mandatory minimum six months in jail.
 
WESTBORO
.131 PBT + ADMITS TO 5 BEERS, NOT GUILTY

The cop followed my client and testified he committed "several lanes violations" and noted a "moderate" odor of alcohol on his breath. Then the client admitted to 5 beers in a short period of time, got out of the car and made several errors on the field sobriety tests.

Result:  Not Guilty after Trial and license restored.
