SALEM CASES

ALL OVER ROAD; BAD ACCIDENT;
NOT GUILTY SECOND OFFENSE
Ms. S;  978.471.0087

Client was seen by a civilian to drive "all over the road" and then accelerate head on into a telephone pole. At trial, the cop testified she showed a strong odor of alcohol, her speech was slurred and she had glassy, bloodshot eyes. I obtained the EMT and hospital records and showed the judge during trial there were no such notations on either set of records. In fact, the doctor noted "her speech was normal," no one noted an odor of alcohol or glassy, bloodshot eyes despite her eyes being examined three times with a flashlight shortly after the accident.

CONFLICTING EVIDENCE PROVED REASONABLE DOUBT.
 
3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION OVERTURNED WHILE CASE PENDING
2ND OFFENSE; 3 CAR ACCIDENT
THEN NOT GUILTY AT TRIAL
JEFF;  978.766.8234

I didn't know I lost my license for 3 years for refusing the breathalyzer until I got the letter from the RMV. Joe said fight this tooth and nail since we only had 15 days to do so. We went to a Hearing in Boston and then appealed it to a Judge in Court. He just kept fighting until he got my license back while the case was still pending. [Incredibly, my job had asked me to give them notice the very day Joe got my license back!]   At trial, he was prepared to cross examine the driver of one of the cars I had hit, showing he had never said I had alcohol on my breath even though I told the cop I had 3 beers.

HE SAVED MY JOB AND JUST KEPT FIGHTING TILL WE WON.

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."

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"
 
"QUICK RESPONSE. GENUINE INTEREST IN MY CASE.
I COULD NOT HAVE BEEN IN BETTER HANDS."
SISCO:  802-236-7331

"Thank you so very much for your help, expertise and DUI support.  The outcome was much better than I could ever have hoped for. After seeing both your in-depth investigation into my situation and then your high level of professionalism in the court room I was left  knowing I could not be in better hands."

 
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.

Salem District Court 
 Peabody District Court trial

 
OVER LIMIT BLOOD TEST
NOT GUILTY DESPITE ACCIDENT

Client was taken to the hospital after a bad accident where his blood was drawn as was that hospital's standard procedure. His blood test was over the legal limit. He also had told the officer he was drinking a beer at the very moment the accident happened. After my pretrial motion to suppress evidence, the incriminating statement about the beer was thrown out. On the day of trial, I successfully managed to get the blood test excluded as well. He was found not guilty of the OUI and not responsible of the open container charge.

Salem District Court

 
5 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED AFTER 3RD OFFENSE

Client wisely refused to take the breathalyzer when he got to the station. However, since he was facing his third drunk driving offense, the RMV suspended him for 5 years for the refusal immediately. After an unsuccessful Hearing at the Boston RMV, we appealed the RMV decision to a judge in Salem District Court. The judge restored his license the very next day.

POLICE TESTIMONY OVERCOME
When an Immigration lawyer was arrested for the first time in his life and unjustly charged with OUI, I achieved a not guilty after a two-day trial despite damaging testimony from not one - but TWO police officers - one of them a Sergeant.
 
NOT GUILTY DESPITE ACCIDENT AND OVER LIMIT BLOOD TEST
My client was in a bad accident and taken to the hospital where a blood draw was performed showing he was over the legal limit. Plus, he admitted he was drinking a beer at the moment the accident happened. At my Motion to Suppress, this statement was thrown out. Then at Trial, the blood result was excluded and we won a Not Guilty on both the OUI -2nd offense and the Open Container charge.
 
3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION LIFTED
WHILE CASE PENDING
'HE JUST KEPT FIGHTING TILL HE GOT MY LICENSE BACK'

I couldn't believe how hard Attorney Waldbaum fought for me in Court. Plus, he never left me in the dark. He kept emailing me about everything he was doing for me. And he just kept fighting till he got my license back. I can't recommend him highly enough. Now I can go back to work.

"HE CLEARED ME OF ALL CHARGES.
HIRING THIS MASSACHUSETTS OUI LAWYER WAS THE BEST CHOICE I EVER MADE"

Facing my 3rd offense and mandatory jail time, I filled out the “Instant Free Consultation” and in minutes my phone rang. Joe knew all about Melanie’s Law and immediately put my mind at ease. He kept me informed and copied me on all the legal documents he filed. Compared to the other two attorneys for my previous arrests he was the hardest working.

Instead of saying plead it out, this DWI Lawyer cleared me of all charges and gave me my life back.
 
'I FELT VERY CONFIDENT THE MINUTE JOE PICKED UP THE PHONE.'

Joe did a wonderful job assisting me in my OUI case. I felt VERY confident the minute he picked up the phone that Sunday morning after I literally had the "worst night of my life." He was even able to get two of the three charges dropped. I was happy with the quick outcome of my case and got back on the road in a few days following his detailed written instructions. I would recommend him to anyone. R.H.

 
LAWYER FOUND NOT GUILTY OF OUI
"I had no idea what effect an OUI conviction would have on my law license but knew the value of specialization in law. I hired Joe, he got me a not guilty and I got my license back the same day of the trial."
- Attorney K. B.
 
REPRESENTATION OF SON
"I would like to express my deep appreciation for your extremely effective involvement in my son's case recently. I was most impressed with your frequent telephone calls to give me feedback and update me on the progress of the case. Your expertise and desire to get results for your client are obvious."
- Mrs. J. - Danvers
 

We want to thank you again for yesterday and all the days before. Turned out better than I even dared hope. I'll drop you an email now and again to let you know how well the boys are doing. -Cathy; 978.500.3798

Cathy watched you get 3 acquittals. I saw the last 2 and was so impressed with your closing argument; how well constructed it was. Irrefutable. Obviously! -Gary. 978-774-0189

 

"I have the utmost respect for you as an attorney. You fight hard for all your clients."
