REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSALS

 
MICHAEL; 8.17.20     HAVERHILL
3RD OFFENSE
5 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED
Client was arrested for his third OUI and refused to take the breath test upon his arrival at the station house. The RMV suspended him for the required five years. We chose to contest this which must be done within only 15 calendar days of the arrest. On appeal to a judge in court we won and the suspension was reversed.

THOMAS; 8.24.20     NEWTON
FIRST OFFENSE
180 DAY LICENSE LOSS REVERSED
Thomas wisely refused the breath test when he reached the station.  However, a first offender who refuses a station breath test immediately loses his license for 180 days. To make matters worse, a citizen has only 15 calendar days to fight this suspension. NOTE: That's 15 calendar days, not business days. Thomas reached the RMV on the 15th day thus making him eligible to contest it. This effort proved worth it because a judge ended up reversing his suspension.

NICK;     978.804.5265 2019 WOBURN
2ND OFFENSE
3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED
Client was a second offender who refused the breathalyzer. The RMV suspended his license for 3 years. This threatened his job as an auto mechanic. We recommended he fight the 3 yr. suspension at the RMV which must be done within 15 calendar days of arrest. The RMV denied reinstatement but we appealed to a judge in court who gave him back his license. He kept his job and has been driving legally during the over one year period it took to get a trial date.

THEY KEPT ME DRIVING ALL THIS EXTRA TIME!"

MITCH;     781.929.9509 2018 HAVERHILL-NEWBURYPORT
3RD OFFENSE
5 YR. REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED

RMV took my license for 5 years when I refused the breathalyzer. Joe guided me through the maze to fight this which must be begun within 15 calendar days of arrest. After the RMV denied me, Joe appealed to a judge in court who reversed the RMV and returned my license. I drove legally and kept my job while we awaited trial. (Not guilty there, too!)

BRENDAN;     508.243.6636 WAREHAM
OUI-2ND OFFENSE,
3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED

RMV immediately suspended his license for a full three years for refusing the breathalyzer. We fought this at the RMV [which must be done within 15 calendar days of arrest] and then on appeal to a judge in court where a judge ordered his license restored.  He was then able to drive legally during the seven months it took to reach trial. Case was then dismissed.  See judge's order restoring license.

JAY;     508.309.8880 FALMOUTH
2ND OFFENSE TREATED AS 1ST
3 YR. REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED

I was arrested for a second offense OUI and was sure my license was gone for five years. After reading Joe's website, I called him and he immediately assuaged my fears by explaining that since my prior OUI was over ten years ago, he might be able to get me treated as a first offender again and get my license quickly. He made good on his word. I am driving to work again and my wife doesn't have to drive me. He was aso able to overturn my 3 year breathalyzer suspension. I couldn't recommend him more highly.

JEFF;     978.766.8234 SALEM
3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION OVERTURNED WHILE CASE PENDING
2ND OFFENSE; 3 CAR ACCIDENT
THEN NOT GUILTY AT TRIAL

I didn't know I lost my license for 3 years for refusing the breathalyzer until I got the letter from the RMV. Joe said fight this tooth and nail since we only had 15 days to do so. We went to a Hearing in Boston and then appealed it to a Judge in Court. He just kept fighting until he got my license back while the case was still pending. [Incredibly, my job had asked me to give them notice the very day Joe got my license back!]   At trial, he was prepared to cross examine the driver of one of the cars I had hit, showing he had never said I had alcohol on my breath even though I told the cop I had 3 beers.

TOM:     774.225.5210 ATTLEBORO
3 YEAR BREATH TEST REFUSAL SUSPENSION OVERTURNED
2ND OFFENSE

I was arrested for my second offense and refused to take the breathalyzer test when I reached the police station. The RMV issued a three year long license suspension.  I thought my license was simply gone for three full years and the whole thing was hopeless. But Joe obviously knows this practice area better than anyone else. He actually drove out to my house to bring me the order giving me back my license. How many lawyers would do that?

MATT:      508.801.2506 BROCKTON ROAD BLOCK
NOT GUILTY IN UNDER TWO MONTHS

I was stopped at a sobriety checkpoint [road block] and  arrested for OUI. Joe answered my early phone call and was in my corner from the start. He was able to explain exactly what will happen with each court hearing and eliminate my anxiety.  His years of experience has helped him build relationships with many contacts in the legal system and he got me a quick trial and a not guilty. When I had trouble getting my license back at the RMV, he was able to help push through my paperwork and get it back the same day.  I strongly recommend him to anyone seeking OUI counsel.

BEN:     508 216 0008 BOSTON - BRIGHTON
FIRST HE BEATS MY 3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION
THEN GETS ME A NOT GUILTY ON MY 2ND OFFENSE

After talking to him the first time, I knew I was in good hands. Joe is very professional, confident and knows Massachusetts drunk driving defense like the back of his hand.  After I lost my license for three full years for not taking the breathalyzer, Joe filed a civil suit against the RMV. He was very organized and aggressive in court. The judge gave my license back immediately after the hearing! That allowed me to drive legally during the months it took to go to Trial.  At Trial, he was completely prepared for the cross exam of all the officers and got me a not guilty. He saved me my job and precious time with my kids.

ADAM:     617-337-6229 NEWTON
FIRST HE GETS MY LICENSE BACK WHILE THE CASE IS GOING ON
THEN GETS ME A NOT GUILTY ON MY 2ND OFFENSE

I definitely got my money's worth during my 2nd offense:

1.  He overturns my three year breath test refusal suspension so I drove legally while the case moved to Trial.
2   At a Motion, he gets the Judge to throw out my incriminating statements;
3.  At Trial, he gets me a not guilty despite a bad accident and the testimony of two witnesses.

STEPHEN:    781 507 4672 WESTBORO
NOT GUILTY!
"JOE IS EXTREMELY IMPRESSIVE IN COURT"

Cop testified he saw me drive up onto a curb and cross marked lanes, was unsteady on my feet, swayed while walking, had a strong odor of alcohol, slurred speech and failed the one leg stand field sobriety test. At my Arraignment, Joe had a Motion allowed to preserve the videos of me at roadside and at booking which ended up refuting what the cop said. Then after getting a Not Guilty, he went the extra mile and  interceded on my behalf with the RMV when they refused to reinstate my license despite the Court Order he had obtained immediately after Trial to force them to do so.

I strongly recommend him to anybody.†† Call me!
 
ERIC:    508 254 6851 ATTLEBORO
2 OTHER OUI LAWYERS SAID I COULDNíT DRIVE FOR 4 YEARS
BUT NOW IíM DRIVING AGAIN BECAUSE OF JOE.
Two other Massachusetts OUI Attorneys said I wouldn't be able to get a license again for four full years.  Joe reduced my three year refusal suspension to just six months and saved me two and one half years without a license. I’m so glad I was recommended to him.  He’s pure gold.

"LISTEN TO WHAT THIS DUI LAWYER SAYS AND JUST DO IT!"

Under Melanie’s Law, the RMV took my license away for 8 years for 3rd offense. I knew Joe had a handle on OUI law because he represented me --very successfully --5 years before. He appealed the new 8 year suspension, went to two Hearings before the Board, presented the records he had found -- from 25 years ago! -- and finally convinced them to reverse the RMV’s decision. He saved my plumbing business from going down the toilet. No joke!

My license was restored immediately!
