  • NOT GUILTY- FRAMINGHAM

    Practice Area:
    DUI & DWI
    Date:
    May 28, 2010
    Outcome:
    NOT GUILTY
    Description:
    I had an open can of beer in the car, was weaving in my lane, crossed the double solid center line and failed two of the three field sobriety tests. After writing me three extremely detailed reprots about the case, Joe recommended we fight the charges. He walked me through the Trial process every step of the way and completely kept me from getting nervous. I'm extremely happy with the way he handled everything. He wanted to win so badly, he actually gave up an Oral Surgery appointment so my Trial could go forward!

    DUI & DWI
    Date:
    Apr 28, 2010
    Outcome:
    NOT GUILTY: FAILED BREATH TEST, FIELD TESTS
    Description:
    Cop testified my client smelled of alcohol, had slurred speech, failed the backwards counting test, the 9 step walk and turn and the one leg stand test. At the station, my client failed the breath tests as well. I stressed to the Court all the things my client had done right [no problems driving, producing license and registration, followed cop's instructions, etc.] and that the breath test was done over one hour after he was arrested and thus should be discounted. The Judge agreed. Not Guilty.
  • .17 BREATH TEST & ALL EVIDENCE THROWN OUT

    Practice Area:
    DUI & DWI
    Date:
    Apr 15, 2010
    Outcome:
    17 BREATH TEST - 2ND OFFENSE; ALL EVIDENCE THROWN
    Description:
    Call me and I'll tell you the truth: Joe is, quite simply, an awesome Massachusetts OUI Attorney. He always let me know what was going on with my case and was always on time to Court. After reviewing all the roadblock documents and the police reports, he told me he had a good chance to get my case thrown completely out of Court. At his Motion to Suppress Evidence, that’s exactly what happened.
  • NOT GUILTY; FAILED BREATH TEST AT ROADBLOCK

    Practice Area:
    DUI & DWI
    Date:
    Mar 15, 2010
    Outcome:
    Not Guilty at trial despite failed breath test
    Description:
    I told the Trooper I had been drinking and smoked pot. He arrested me after the field tests and then I failed the breath tests too. I hired Attorney Joseph Waldbaum after speaking with him on the phone just once. He was always professional and courteous and communication was excellent. He kept me up to date with detailed written reports and explained all my options. As a result, I decided to fight. At my drunk driving Trial, he did an excellent job cross examining the Trooper –who was no slouch and trains all the other Troopers. "At Trial, he did one hell of a job and made one hell of an argument!"
  • NOT GUILTY- WESTBORO - ROADBLOCK

    Practice Area:
    DUI & DWI
    Date:
    Feb 26, 2010
    Outcome:
    FAILED BREATH TEST AND FIELD TESTS BUT NOT GUILTY
    Description:
    I was stopped at a roadblock and told the Trooper I had been drinking 45 minutes ago. He took me out of the car and I foolishly agreed to do the field sobriety tests. I failed them all and was arrested. Then I –also foolishly—agreed to take the breathalyzer in the trailer nearby. I failed both those too. Plus, at Trial, the Trooper testified my eyes couldn’t focus on him and I was unsteady on my feet. No matter. Joe’s obvious skills during cross-examination won the day. "Put yourself in his hands -- he's a god." -Eric. OK to call me at 508-479-8570
