MILFORD CASES

2ND OFFENSE:
NOT GUILTY AND LICENSE RESTORED
JAMES;  617.462.6099

At trial, although the trooper testified my client  appeared "out of it" and moved as if "underwater," we stressed his ability to produce his license and registration with no difficulty menat his fine motor skills were perfectly normal. Also, that his ability to do well on at least some of the field sobriety tests meant reasonable doubt. Judge agreed and then rerstored his license.

3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION OVERTURNED FOR 2ND OFFENSE
JAMES:  617.462.6099

Client wisely refused the breath test at the police station but was suspended by the RMV for three full years for doing so. The fight against this suspension must be begun within 15 calendar days after the arrest and we did so. Judge then reversed RMV decision and restored his license so he will be able to drive legally while the case is still pending thus making his life much easier in the interim.  

See order reversing RMV.

FAILED BREATH TEST TWICE LEGAL LIMIT, 3RD OFFENSE:
NOT GUILTY ....FOR THE 2ND TIME!
PETER;  508.902.8064

Joe represented me in '06 charged with my 3rd DUI and got me acquitted despite the testimony of 2 witnesses. Then he convinced the judge to restore my license despite the years long suspension for refusing the breath test. In 2013, I was arrested again and took the breath test but blew a .15--almost twice the legal limit. He got the breath test thrown out at a Motion to Suppress Evidence. At trial,  the cop swore I failed all the field tests but Joe convinced the jury to disregard them since they were done at 3 AM while facing the flashing lights of two police cars.

TWO 3RD OFFENSE TRIALS - TWO NOT GUILTYS!
 
MANDATORY JAIL AVOIDED TWICE
JOE;  781-710-2515

'I first read about Attorney Waldbaum in a newspaper article. After I called, he reduced my 5 year refusal suspension to just 6 months. Then he talked the DA's office into reducing my 3rd offense to just a 2nd so I avoided a mandatory jail sentence. Then, years later, when I was caught driving after suspension for OUI, I was facing a mandatory minimum jail sentence again. That time he talked another DA in another Court into reducing that charge so I only paid a fine.'

'HE KNOWS ALL THE COURTS AND ALL THE PLAYERS
AND THEY ALL KNOW HIM.'
 
JAIL AND 8 YEAR LICENSE LOSS AVOIDED
.15 FAILED BREATH TEST SUPPRESSED

I was stopped for a lanes violation and arrested. I took the breath test and it was .15--- almost twice the legal limit. After reviewing my case, Joe said he saw a possible way to have the very incriminating breath test suppressed and he was absolutely right. The otherwise tough prosecution oriented judge threw it out. That gave me a fighting chance at trial on my third offense. He won that too.

 
NOT GUILTY: 3RD OFFENSE
5 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION ORDERED REVERSED

Client was facing his third offense, a mandatory jail sentence of six months to two and one half years plus a five year refusal suspension. After considerable effort during discovery, I obtained the booking video from the Police Department. At trial, I was able to show the Judge how he was able to remove his belt and jewelry with no problems, thus showing he retained fine motor skills and there were no signs of swaying or unsteadiness during the 30 minute video. I argued this created the requisite reasonable doubt. The Judge agreed. Then, at a subsequent Hearing, the judge ordered his license fully restored.

 
HERE'S HOW I BEAT A DUI FOR THIS CLIENT:
THIRD OFFENDER NOT GUILTY NO JAIL OR 13 YEAR LICENSE LOSS

A civilian cell phone caller testified that my client had twice crossed into the opposite lane completely. He was charged with his 3rd offense and faced a mandatory jail sentence of six months up to two and one half years. I made a copy of the videotape of his booking procedure and produced it at Trial. For 28 minutes, it showed no unsteadiness on his feet or other signs of intoxication. I argued to the Judge this created the required "reasonable doubt" despite the testimony of the two witnesses.

Result:
No 6 month jail term and no 13 year license loss
