NATICK CASES

IN 15 MINUTES, JURY FINDS 2ND OFFENDER NEVER "OPERATED" CAR

My client's girlfriend had been driving the truck and got out after an argument, leaving it in the middle of the road. My client moved over to the driver's seat and promptly fell asleep. On cross examination, I made all 3 officers admit they never actually saw him drive. The Judge had read the police report and said the case was "not triable" due to my client's extreme intoxication. The jury didn't agree: they acquitted him after deliberating less than 15 minutes


.15 FAILED BREATH TEST CASE THROWN OUT
FOG LINE NO REASON FOR STOP

The cop followed Mr. S. one mile and saw him cross the fog line only once. He stopped him and arrested him for OUI. Mr. S blew an over limit.15 at the station, almost twice the legal limit. I advised my client how to fight a DUI: attack the legality of the stop of the car. At my Motion to Dismiss, I gave the Judge cases from 4 other states deciding crossing the fog line is not enough reason to stop a car. The Judge agreed, citing the case I gave him (from Montana!) in his decision.

Result:   ALL evidence -- field sobriety tests, breath test -- thrown out and case dismissed

5 BEERS IN 1 HOUR PLUS ACCIDENT: NOT GUILTY

My client had caused a bad accident pulling out of his driveway and then admitted to 5 beers in 1 hour. I pointed out to the Judge that he was obviously shaken from the crash, there were 4 emergency vehicles present all with their lights flashing and despite this his performance on 2 of the 3 field tests was still adequate. Result: Not guilty after trial.


PROBATION INSTEAD OF ONE YEAR MANDATORY JAIL SENTENCE

Under Melanie's Law, having been arrested twice in one month for OUI, my client was facing a minimum mandatory jail sentence of ONE FULL YEAR every day of which had to be served. I presented the DA with a "Motion with Exhibits" from the RMV showing his license was suspended not for the prior OUI but for the breath test refusal only.

Result: DA dropped the minimum mandatory charge on very next Court date

'YOU ARE A FANTASTIC LAWYER AND AN EVEN BETTER PERSON'

I would be honored if you would use my words on your website. I truly meant what I said. You are a fantastic lawyer and an even better person. You may also use the phone number I gave you. Once again, thank you for everything.

Sincerely,

Dave, 508.473.3085


'JOE DOMINATED THE COURT ROOM AND WALKED ALL OVER THE D.A.'

I was ready to take the First Offender Deal but after speaking with Joe I was convinced he could win my case. He provided me with valuable advice without ever pushing his opinions on me and scheduled a trial just 6 weeks after my arrest on a date he knew the judge on duty to be the most lenient. When two police officers came instead of one, he quickly reacted with a Motion to Sequester so they couldn't speak and tell each other what they said in the Court room.

I was found Not Guilty and had my license reinstated the same afternoon.

Then he followed through and made sure I had all the documents and direction I needed. I recommend him without hesitation. It is so nice to be able to drive again.


RESPECTED BY ALL IN COURT ROOM- MUCH APPRECIATED SENSE OF HUMOR

"If you're reading this, chances are you need a great attorney during a hard time -- Joseph is that and more. He's knowledgeable, efficient, extremely responsive and a kind/honest person. I called him on Sunday afternoon and he was there to represent me on Monday less than 24 hours later. For over 6 months, he was there for me on many occasions including going out of his way to obtain police videos and was always so prepared in court. During very stressful times, his presence (which sometimes even included a much appreciated sense of humor) put me at ease. He explained things every step of the way. He's clearly respected by everyone in the courtroom (Judges, DA's etc). C.K., Lynn, MA

Joe avoided the mandatory jail sentence for my 3rd offense.
I truly recommend him for his expertise and character."

NOT GUILTY LESS THAN 2 MONTHS AFTER ARREST

"After being arrested for OUI and speeding, I wanted to fight it and ran an Internet search to find lawyers that specialize. I interviewed several but none of them seemed as confident as Joe. He got me to Trial in less than two months, which was unheard of by any other lawyer I spoke with. I was found Not Guilty allowing my license to be restored immediately. Because of Joe, I was able to put this situation behind me quickly."


Judge to Attorney W. after a not guilty on a 2nd offense with a failed breath test:

"You did a great job. You’re always right on top of things. I even show your Memoranda to other attorneys and ask them "Why don't you do it like that?'"
