IPSWICH CASES

NOT GUILTY- ROAD BLOCK
DOUG;  978.436.1890

"I was stopped at a roadblock and told the troopers I had been drinking 3 beers. They made me get out and do field sobriety tests. I was so nervous I didn't do very well and they arrested me. I looked at online videos of lawyers but Joe presented himself the best and was the most professional. I definitely made the right choice: he guided me through the whole overwhelming court process and made all the right calls and got me acquitted.  I was fully satisfied with Joe as my lawyer."

'I AM HAPPY TO SPEAK TO ANYONE
WHO CALLS ME ABOUT JOE.'
 
NOT GUILTY ALL 3 CHARGES
'THE MOST CAPABLE OUI LAWYER IN MASSACHUSETTS'
T.L.:  978.979.5184

At my jury trial, two cops testified that I had a strong odor of alcohol, slurred speech, and glassy bloodshot eyes. The arresting officer said I was "swaying in my lane" for over a mile but as, Joe dramatically pointed out in Court, she hadn't written that in her report. He then demonstrated the field sobriety tests in front of the jury box to show how hard they are and how well I had performed at 2 AM. He took care of everything from soup to nuts.  After the Not Guilty verdict, he even was able to convince the Judge to restore my license immediately.

JOE BEAT JAIL FOR ME IN 2 COURTS IN 1 DAY!
(DESPITE A .28 FAILED BREATH TEST)
ERIC:  978 799 1756

I was still on Probation for OUI-1st in Salem when I was arrested for OUI 2nd Offense in Ipswich and registered an over limit .28. My Salem Probation Officer issued a Warrant for my arrest and asked that I be placed into custody when I got to Newburyport.  The DA in Newburyport was asking for jail also.  Joe managed to talk the judge out of having me taken into custody AND of sending me to jail for my 2nd offense.  Instead, the Judge actually released me into Joe's custody. Then when we went to Salem later that day, my Probation officer was asking for a one year jail sentence on my first offense. Joe convinced the Salem Judge not to do so and I went home that night instead of to jail. Joe is the most intimidating and confident lawyer I have ever encountered and I was blessed to have him on my side. 

"HE WALKED INTO BOTH COURTS LIKE HE PAID THE MORTGAGE!
YOU WANT HIM AS YOUR OUI LAWYER"
 
2ND OFFENSE
JURY ACQUITS IN 15 MINUTES

After our client was arrested for a second-offense drunk driving charge while riding his motorcycle, I convinced the jury that operating a two-wheel vehicle requires a finer sense of balance than operating a four-wheel automobile. Also, getting off of a motorcycle requires raising one leg up very high, which he was able to do without any difficulty or unsteadiness. Essentially, he performed a very difficult one leg stand test perfectly. When the cop testified he had him walk an imaginary line, I then asked the officer, "How wide was that imaginary line?" As he stammered trying to answer, the jury got the point. They deliberated only 15 minutes and then came back with a not guilty.

SPEEDING, 2nd OUI
JURY: NOT GUILTY IN 10 MINUTES
SAM 978-835-6217
After I was stopped for speeding, cops said I failed the roadside tests and failed the breath test with twice the legal limit of .15. Joe argued that I committed no lanes violations, promptly signaled and safely pulled over when cops turned on their flashing lights. Then I showed no difficulty finding wallet and getting license or finding registration, and no trouble getting out of the car or walking. Jury came back with not guilty after only 10 minutes.

CLIENT: "IF I DIDN'T ADMIT I WAS DRUNK, WOULD YOU STILL HAVE ARRESTED ME"
RESULT: NOT GUILTY
Charged with his 2nd offense, client was stopped for speeding 71 mph in a 45 zone and straddling the fog line. After failing 2 sobriety tests and admitting to 4 drinks, he made the above statement to the cop at the station after being arrested.

I got the cop to admit on the stand he waited in that area nightly because "he caught a lot of speeders on that stretch." Then I demonstrated the 2 sobriety tests in front of the jury, pointed out they were done at 1 AM on the fog line of a highway with CARS SPEEDING BY just 2-3 feet away.

(If convicted, my client would have lost his license for 2 years and his dream job as a cameraman at a top TV news station.)
 
'WHEN THE JUDGE READ THE VERDICT, MY MOUTH DROPPED!'

Dear Attorney Waldbaum,

Thank you so much for taking my case and working it as you did. I am
truly pleased with the outcome. After hearing the District Attorney go on for it seemed like a lifetime... I was resolved to the fact that I was going to be charged with a felony. But when the Judge read the verdict, my mouth dropped. I wasn't sure I heard it right, but I guess I did. I hope I showed you appreciation outside the courtroom. I was just so elated I wasn't sure I had. Thank you again for everything!

John W.

 
MY LIFE CHANGED SO MUCH FROM 2 SIMPLE WORDS: NOT GUILTY

"In my field, having a license is the most important asset. Without it, I wouldn't be working for a news station now (or any news station for years to come). You met me at the site of the arrest on a Sunday morning, made a video and took photos and used them all at my Jury Trial. Your hard work and determination paid off ."

"NO EXTRA COST THAN YOU PROMISED"
Dear Attorney Waldbaum,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the superb job you did for us. It is a big relief knowing that we can hopefully put this behind us now, and move on in a positive direction. We had no idea whom to call legally. But with your expertise we were able to close the case within a two month period at no extra cost than you promised. We are so pleased with your expertise, it would be our great pleasure to recommend you to friends, family, and strangers alike.
 
VERY PLEASED WITH OUTCOME
"It was an honor to have you represent me in Court this past Tuesday. I was very pleased with the outcome. You are a very intelligent man and I respect your hard work. If anyone ever needs a DWI Lawyer for a similar situation I will be sure to let them know of your work. My family and I thank you for your help."
