PEABODY CASES

TWICE ARRESTED FOR 2ND OFFENSE
TWICE NOT GUILTY !
STEVE;  978.882.3768

Joe got me a not guilty in 2011 but then in 2013 I caused an accident and got arrested again.  The cops testified I would not roll my window down all the way or look at them, was unsteady on my feet, my eyes were extremely bloodshot and glassy and my speech was thick tongued. I admitted to drinking 3 beers, the most recent 1 hour previously. Joe pointed out the conflicts in their testimony and showed a photo that I was wearing 2 lip studs [which could account for the speech issue]. He argued my excellent performance on the alphabet test created the necessary reasonable doubt. The judge agreed. Then he had a Motion ready to restore my license [another battle due to my poor driving record] but Joe convinced him to do that as well.

NOT GUILTY
FAILED BREATH TEST BUT
DONE ALMOST 1 HOUR AFTER DRIVING
ALINA;  718.600.4549

Client was seen drifting into next lane and straddling line for ten full seconds.  She had a strong odor of alcohol on her breath and admitted drinking.  She stumbled turning on the 9 step test and swayed and hopped on the one leg stand. She then blew an over limit breathalyzer at the barracks after her arrest. I argued the field tests were done at 4 am while barefoot and the breath test was given almost one hour after driving and it could not be proven beyond all reasonable doubt what her blood alcohol was "at the time of driving" as required by law. Not guilty.

 
NOT GUILTY ALL 3 CHARGES:
1. OUI 3RD OFFENSE
2. RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT OF CHILD
3. CHILD ENDANGERMENT WHILE OUI
SEAN:  617.208.9251

While plowing a driveway, my truck crashed into the side of the house causing extensive damage. I said I had 3 beers but they found an open container of vodka on the dashboard and my 5 year old in the front seat so I was charged with Child Endangerment while I was OUI. It was my third offense and got extensive news coverage.  (They dubbed me “Mr. Plowed” on the Internet!) 

Although 2 cops and the Chief of the Fire Department testified I was disheveled and gave their opinion I was under the influence, Joe found an appellate case which had just come down the very week of trial. The Judge said he had read it that very morning, relied on it in issuing acquittals on all 3 charges and actually complimented Joe for finding it. 

Then Joe followed through and convinced the Judge to overturn my 5 year license suspension for refusing the breathalyzer - which got us back in the news papers again! 
"THIS IS THE ONLY LAWYER TO HIRE.
HE’S LIKE A PANTHER IN THE COURTROOM."

CASE DISMISSED DESPITE BAD ACCIDENT
MARK:  781 801 3399

My SUV rolled over and ended upside down on a guard rail. Police report said I had an "overwhelming" odor of alcohol on my breath. I was taken to a nearby hospital and blood was drawn. I saw Joe's website and called some of the clients he represented. They all said I would be in good hands and they were absolutely right.  He obviously knew what he was talking about since the DUI case was dismissed. I would absolutely recommend him to anybody facing these charges.

No criminal record, no fines, no license loss
 
NOT GUILTY OUI-3RD
NOT GUILTY RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT OF CHILD
NOT GUILTY CHILD ENDANGERMENT WHILE OUI
SEAN 617-208-9251

Sean had his 5 year old son with him while snow plowing. While clearing a driveway, his truck hit the side of the house. He admitted to 3 beers and had an open vodka container on the dashboard. The internet labeled him, "Mr. Plowed." At trial, the fire chief and two officers testified he was OUI. I found an appeals case decided the week before trial about "public way." The judge had read it that morning and complimented me for finding it. The judge acquitted him and then overturned his five-year refusal suspension.

MULTIPLE LANES VIOLATIONS
MIKE 617-866-8541

Mike almost hit a police cruiser that had to swerve out of the way. Then, after running a stop sign, he almost hit a median barrier. Although the officer testified at trial about his slurred speech, judge agreed that client did well on the 9-step heel to toe walk and turn field test without losing balance. Not guilty.

'Joe is a very competent and likable lawyer.'

LICENSE RESTORED IMMEDIATELY
JUSTIN 978-853-4168

Client was stopped for speeding double the legal speed limit. He did not pull over for police officer when signaled to do so then finally parked crooked in a parking space. His eyes were bloodshot, red, and glassy. He had slurred speech and an odor of alcohol. I obtained and presented his medical records at trial that explained many of these observations. Judge found him not guilty and restored his license immediately.

'I was found not guilty of both charges.
These are two awesome lawyers.'

3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED
FOR 2ND OFFENSE

Client was charged as a second offender and refused to take the breath test when offered at the police station. (The breath test at roadside does not count.) The Registry suspended him for 3 full years. I guided him through the complex process of appealing this at the RMV and then before a judge in court. The judge reversed the RMV and restored his right to drive while the case was still pending.

See decision reversing registry.

3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED WHILE CASE PENDING

'The first time I spoke to Joe on the phone I could tell he was very competitive and wanted to win. The RMV had suspended me for 3 years for refusing the breath test. Joe guided me through the process of fighting this and he was absolutely right about everything. I couldn't be happier with what he did for me. It's OK to call me to verify this.'
