DAVID;     910.723.3940 QUINCY; 6-8-21
NOT GUILTY 2ND OFFENSE.
JUDGE ORDERS LICENSE RESTORED
James Dunn is master at what he does. He kept me informed every step of the way during the two years it took to go to trial and helped me make all the right decisions from day one. We declined the DA's offers to settle the case and instead fought it. At trial, James was obviously well prepared with motions and arguments and convinced the jury to find me not guilty. Then he immediately convinced the judge to restore my license despite my 3-year breath test refusal suspension. Attorney Dunn helped me get my life back. I couldn't be happier at what did for me.

ALL 6 CHARGES DISMISSED
2ND OFFENSE
Attorney Dunn went beyond my wildest expectations. They were always with me in court, always on time and always prepared. They never gave up fighting for me for almost two years.  I didn't think I had a chance because I failed the field tests and the breath test. But, incredibly, James got the breath test thrown out of court! Then he was able to convince the judge to dismiss all 6 charges. That saved me from a two year license loss, a possible jail sentence, and thousands of dollars in fines and fees.

I WISH I COULD USE ATTORNEY DUNN
FOR ALL MY LEGAL NEEDS
These two men are excellent at what they do.I wish I could use attorney Dunn for all my legal needs. He was personable, protected my money and watched over me. They have a job. That job was to protect me and they did it without the fluff.
THESE TWO MEN ARE EXCELLENT AT WHAT THEY DO

JASON;    781.686.2414 1.28.21; STOUGHTON
6-MONTH REFUSAL SUSPENSION OVERTURNED
I hired Joe and James because of their excellent Google reviews. They were quick with responses to e-mails and calls at any time or day.. They were very clear with every aspect of the process and the steps needed to be taken.. Incredibly, they were able to overturn my six-month refusal suspension so I got my license back much sooner. Also, they reduced some of the fines I was required to pay. Attorney Dunn always took time to actually talk with me and never rushed through any calls.

CASE DISMISSED
DESPITE ACCIDENT & FAILED BREATH TEST
We hired you for my daughter because you were genuinely interested and compassionate. Your answers to all our questions were detailed yet simple to understand. You kept everything on a positive note giving us comfort that we were represented by a knowledgable and professional law firm. Despite her accident and failed breath test, attorney Dunn achieved a dismissal of all the charges against her. Kudos for your efforts, compassion and a job well "Dunn."  Frank C.

JIMMY;     401.533.8787‬ UXBRIDGE & WORCESTER
OUI-2ND OFFENSE AND
3 OTHER CHARGES DISMISSED
"Joe and James went way above and beyond my expectations. They take their work seriously and obviously enjoy what they do. I could tell people in the court respected them both. I was even willing to take a year or two of probation but didn't have to because they got all 4 charges dismissed. Any further delay would have led to the loss of my job. My boss had been patient but that had run out. Now I can focus on my work and family again without this hanging over my head.  You should have total confidence in them."

JOEY;     508.615.9484 CLINTON, FITCHBURG
BREATH TEST .26 - OVER 3 TIMES LIMIT;
BUT NOT GUILTY OF OUI AT JURY TRIAL

I thought I was dead to rights. I blew a. 26 on the breath test which was 3 times the legal limit. Somehow, James got the DA to agree to keep it out of evidence against me at trial. Plus, the civilian caller who followed me  also showed up at trial and took the stand but James pointed out inconsistencies in his testimony. There was even a bad video but James totally turned that around on them. He's a rock star. 

'JAMES IS TOTALLY TOGETHER
HE HAD THE DA SCRAMBLING. I GIVE HIM 5 STARS'

JOHN;     978.518.1287 LOWELL
NOT GUILTY OUI-2ND OFFENSE
LICENSE RESTORED IMMEDIATELY
"Both Joe and James put my mind at ease from the very beginning. They were always available to answer questions and give me guidance, no matter how late I got home from work. They gave me solid advice and helped me make all the right decisions. Should I plead guilty or go to trial? Should I choose judge or a jury trial? They were right about everything."

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

Cop saw Bert cross marked lines 5 times and wrote he had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and a strong odor of alcohol. Bert also told the officer he had his last drink 1 hour before the stop and was arrested after doing field sobriety tests.  At the barracks he took the breathalyzer test and failed it. At trial, attorney Dunn argued he was able to produce both documents without issue showing nothing wrong with his fine motor skills and he exited the car perfectly normally and walked perfectly normally creating the necessary reasonable doubt. Judge found him not guilty.  He was also found not responsible  of the other two charges.

PROFESSIONAL OUI EXPERT.'

STEPHEN;     901.351.5486 CONCORD;
FAILED BREATH TEST & FIELD TESTS;
NOT GUILTY OUI-2ND & NEGLIGENT OPERATION

Cop saw client driving with two tires in opposite lane for 50 yards. When asked for license, he gave cop Walmart receipt. He failed the one leg stand and alphabet test with allegedly "slurred" speech and blew a .13 at the station. First we negotiated the exclusion of the breath test. Then, the booking video we obtained showed him entering the station handcuffed behind his back yet walking and talking perfectly normally. This created the necessary reasonable doubt.

CLIENT'S LETTER:

I thank you and James for all your hard work. Joe is totally no nonsense and tells you the exact truth. If an attorney tells you he can absolutely win your case, do not waste your time. Call Joe. He has fair rates and is the only lawyer I know of that has a payment plan that will not make you feel you have been raked over the coals. I placed my trust in them and you should too. Incredible professionalism. They have a saying, "Don't look back...you're not going that way." Best piece of advice you'll ever get. 

With sincere admiration, Stephen Jackson

SETH;     617.866.9985 MALDEN, BOARD OF APPEALS
NOT GUILTY OUI-2ND
DID ONE LEG STAND AT 3 AM

Client was reported as an "erratic operator." Cop approached him, was overwhelmed by an odor of alcohol, his eyes were glassy and bloodshot and his speech slurred. At trial, attorney Dunn argued he was able to produce his license and registration with no difficulty and performed well on the one leg stand test at 3 AM.  Judge quickly found him not guilty and ordered 3 yr. refusal suspension removed. When RMV refused to return license, attorney Dunn went to Board of Appeals who ordered RMV to do so.

'THEY SAVED MY LIFE'
FAILED ALL FIELD TESTS,
NOT GUILTY 2ND OFFENSE

Client was found sleeping in his car which was parked facing the wrong way on a one way street. He took a full three minutes to find his license, was unsteady on his feet when he exited and failed all the field sobriety tests, including the one leg stand and the 9 step walk and turn. I argued that the lateness of the hour and the extremely cold weather created reasonable doubt. The judge agreed and then restored his license, overturning his three year refusal suspension so he can now drive legally again and support his family.

'BOTH JAMES AND JOE ARE OUTSTANDING ATTORNEYS'

   JUDGE REVERSES 3 YR. REFUSAL SUSPENSION   

COLIN;     508.930.7045 WAREHAM
2ND OFFENSE- NOT GUILTY
3 YR. REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED BY JUDGE

Atty Dunn: Thanks so much for your patience, knowledge, professionalism and support. You made the process so much less intimidating for us. So glad we had you on our side at jury trial.

Atty Waldbaum: Thank you for your thoroughness, candor, responsiveness and for always letting us know our next steps and what to expect.

'YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST.
WE SURE PICKED A GREAT TEAM'

MICHAEL;     779.456.1777 QUINCY
NOT GUILTY 1ST OFFENSE
LICENSE RESTORED SAME DAY

Client drove over a 12 inch curb and did not stop when police flashed their lights at him. He accelerated to 50 mph with a flat tire. Cop testified he was unsteady on his feet, had an odor of alcohol and his speech was thick and slurred. We immediately filed a motion to preserve the booking video.  At trial, attorney Dunn played the video showing him standing normally and speaking normally and argued there was a "disconnect" between the police report and the video. The judge agreed, acquitted him and restored his license immediately.

'ATTORNEY DUNN WORKED HARD FOR ME.
THEY'RE A GREAT TEAM. 'I'M THRILLED!'

    ORDER RESTORING LICENSE   

CARLOS;     617.642.7062 LYNN
FAILED BREATH TEST (.15)
BAD ACCIDENT
NOT GUILTY 2ND OFFENSE

Client totaled his car and another. He then failed the field tests and the station breath test with a .15 -- almost twice the legal limit. I immediately drew up and filed a motion to preserve the booking video. This showed the officer failed to observe him for a full 15 minutes immediately preceding the breath test. After four hearing dates addressing this, the judge threw out the breath test. Then, at trial, despite otherwise damning testimony, the trial judge said that the client's excellent appearance on the booking video created reasonable doubt and acquitted him.

WERE ULTIMATE PROFESSIONALS THROUGHOUT"

'James Dunn is a great lawyer. He was diligent and communicative throughout the whole process. He  always advised me to take my time and think through all the options and outcomes. He worked hard to win my case and made me feel like I was his only client. I wholeheartedly endorse him. A great and patient lawyer will work hard to get you the outcome you hope for.'

CHRIS;     413.244.9733 SPRINGFIELD
FAILED BREATH TEST (.12), FIELD TESTS
NOT GUILTY - 1ST OFFENSE

"Attorney Dunn was thoroughly professional from start to finish. I was worried about how it would turn out but he put me at ease. He did a great job at jury trial and dramatically caught the trooper in not just one but two lies. The jury didn't like that at all!  They found me not guilty of OUI and not guilty of reckless driving. I couldn't recommend them more highly. Feel free to call me if you are thinking about hiring the firm."

"ATTORNEY DUNN KEPT ME AT EASE THROUGHOUT.

JAMES;     781.697.5281 CONCORD-NEWTON
3RD OFFENSE
FAILED BREATH TEST (.17);
OVER TWICE LEGAL LIMIT

"I was sure I was going to jail but Joe proved my first OUI shouldn't count against me. His associate attorney James Dunn had to go back to the other court three times before the clerk finally found it in the basement. That made all the difference at trial. The DA wanted to give me a two year jail sentence but Joe talked the judge out of it. I can't believe how hard they both worked for me (and how early in the morning Joe got up to send me emails). They're both fantastic. It's OK for people to call me if they want."

MANDATORY JAIL & FELONY CONVICTION AVOIDED

DAVID;     508.737.8939 FALMOUTH
3RD OFFENSE REDUCED TO 1ST

I can't believe how hard attorneys Waldbaum and Dunn worked for me. First, they got my 5 year refusal suspension overturned. Then they went back to the other courts where I had at least 2 OUIs from 30+ years ago. They found my old records and convinced the judge to treat me as a first offender instead of a third. Here is what they avoided for me:

  • a felony conviction
  • six months in jail
  • 13 years with no license

All potential clients are welcome to call me to verify this.

13 YEAR LICENSE LOSS REDUCED TO 45 DAYS

DO YOURSELF A FAVOR:
HIRE THEM.

Both Joe and James are thorough professionals, They showed me how to get back on the road again in just a few days.  Everything they told me turned out to be absolutely spot on. Do yourself a favor: Hire them!

FAST THEY WORKED FOR ME.'
