BAD ACCIDENT, HIT POLE,
KNOCKED OUT POWER TO AREA
NOT GUILTY 2ND OFFENSE
Ryan struck a utility pole, snapped it in half and cut power to the whole area. His car rolled over and three cops had to bend the metal to get him out. He failed the one leg stand test, the alphabet, the walk and turn and the backwards counting test. Then he admitted to the cop he had just had four beers, the last one an hour ago and had nothing to eat all day but breakfast. Plus, he had slurred speech, bloodshot, glassy eyes and smelled of alcohol. Jury: Not Guilty 2nd offense.
CLIENT'S THANK YOU NOTE:
"Joe, I interviewed several attorneys to represent me and NO ONE WAS EVEN WILLING TO GO TO TRIAL! I liked how direct you were with me and never blew smoke or led me to believe there was no risk involved. Your informed advice gave me the knowledge to make the correct decision. I highly recommend you to anyone facing an OUI charge."
"I FELT WELL REPRESENTED ALL THE WAY FROM JURY SELECTION TO YOUR IMPRESSIVE CLOSING ARGUMENTS."
3RD OFFENSE; ACCIDENT MANDATORY JAIL AND FELONY CONVICTION AVOIDED
'The facts of my case were not good at all. I admitted drinking shots and even told the cop I didn't know how many I'd had. On the day my case was scheduled for jury trial, Joe managed to negotiate a deal where no jail was involved and no felony conviction. He's an exceptional lawyer and has obviously been practicing DUI defense a long time. I strongly recommend him to anyone who finds himself in this kind of trouble.'
'JOE OBVIOUSLY KNOWS HIS WAY AROUND A COURT ROOM'
Two troopers saw me accidentally drive into a snow bank. They wrote in their reports that my eyes were bloodshot and glassy and that they had to ask me three times for my drivers license. I couldn't stand in the difficult heel to toe position during the nine step test. They arrested me and charged me with second offense drunk driving, negligent driving, and an open container of alcohol. On the first trial date neither trooper showed up. On the second trial date when neither of them showed, Joe immediately brought a motion to dismiss all charges. The judge agreed. Joe then asked for an immediate hearing to restore my license. The judge did so and overturned my three-year refusal suspension.
