WALTHAM CASES

Mr. Q.     617.391.7437
 
FAILED ALL 3 FIELD SOBRIETY TESTS:
NOT GUILTY, 2ND OFFENSE
'JOE SAVED MY LIFE.'

I've dealt with a lot of lawyers but Joe is definitely the best.  He kept me informed through the entire case with emails and copies of documents.  At Trial, the cop testified I committed 4 traffic infractions, had slurred speech, was unsteady when I got out of my car and failed the one leg stand, walk and turn and alphabet tests. Plus, the booking sergeant testified I had a strong odor of alcohol and saw me sway during booking. Joe was unbelievable at Trial and turned the tables on them both. The jury was out only 40 minutes. Not Guilty 2nd offense OUI.

HE'S THE OUI LAWYER YOU WANT. CALL ME, I'LL TELL YOU WHY.

FAILED BREATH TEST THROWN OUT
2ND OFFENSE

Client was stopped for speeding and arrested for OUI. He failed the breathalyzer at the station a well over the legal limit. Before advising him how to proceed, I insisted on scrutinizing the booking video and discerned that the breath test was not properly administered. I was able to show this to a Judge at a Motion to Suppress Hearing. The Judge agreed and excluded the breath test from evidence at Trial.

See court order excluding breath test.

FAILED BREATH TEST THROWN OUT OF COURT

My client was arrested after a chase by the police and elected to take the breathalyzer at the station house. He failed it over limit and his license was suspended immediately. After viewing the booking video, I could see that the test was not properly administered and recommended my client challenge it. After a full Hearing on my Motion to Suppress evidence, the Judge threw the breath test out of court.


3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION REDUCED TO JUST 6 MONTHS

My client, charged with his 2nd offense, had refused the Breathalyzer and the RMV immediately suspended him for a full three years. I advised him that there was a loophole in the then current statute allowing for a reduction of this to just 6 months through the Board of Appeals. I presented the Board with my Memorandum detailing this and the Board accordingly reduced his three year suspension to just six months.

This saved him two and one half years without a license.
