    • I recommend Joseph Waldbaum.

    I live in New York State and my daughter lives in Medford, MA - Like most parents I felt awful when I received the phone call that my daughter was arrested and charged with a DUI. Her arrest caused hardship in our family and I didn't know what to do next. Fortunately my wife found Joseph Waldbaum on the internet and it was like God coming to the rescue. He immediately put us at ease and explained to us the best way to handle this situation. It was a very complicated case and Mr. Waldbaum handled it to perfection. My Wife, my daughter, and I could not have been more satisfied. On a scale of one to ten we give Mr. Waldbaum an eleven.

    • I recommend Joseph Waldbaum.

    Joseph Waldbaum provided excellent representation for our son, who was innocent of the charge of operating under the influence. His professional expertise in presentation of the facts and proving the charges untrue resulted in a victorious outcome vindicating our son, who was found not guilty. Joseph also challenged the automatic suspension of our son's license to operate by the registry because he refused to take a breathalyzer test and won, allowing our son to regain his license so he could drive to work and not jeopardize keeping his job. My husband and I recommend the high quality of his services to others and give our full endorsement of his qualifications.

    • I recommend Joseph Waldbaum.

    Nobody introduced me to Joe. He responded to my inquiry and most of our communication was via email. He assessed my case, laid out all the options and answered all the questions. On the day we were supposed to go to court and get a date for a jury trial, we ended up having a trial before a judge who found me not guilty of OUI in spite of a 0.08 BAC.

    I recently spent two very stressful days in Woburn District Court at the trial of my son for a second OUI offense. A conviction would have had disastrous consequences for my son, his career, and for his young family. However, it was our good fortune to have been represented by Joseph Waldbaum who is, without much doubt, the best OUI defense attorney in the Commonwealth. Mr. Waldbaum's skill, professionalism, and extensive knowledge of the fine points of the law were all on display during this trial. He effectively countered the prosecuting attorney's arguments, cast doubt upon the testimony of witnesses through cross examination, and clearly explained the concept of reasonable doubt to the jury. It was a masterful performance. After deliberation, the jury returned a not guilty verdict. My son is now free to get on with his life. We owe a very great debt of gratitude to Joe Waldbaum and I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone who finds himself or herself in trouble with the law.

    • I recommend Joseph Waldbaum.
    • I hired Joseph 1-3 years ago.
    • Joseph handled my DUI & DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    This was a 2nd OUI, and Joe was fantastic. He initially got the charges dismissed after several hearings, but informed me that the state had the right to re-instate them since it never went to trial. Sure enough, the state did a few months later. Joe again jumped into action, and we went to trial. He caught the officer in 2 lies during the trial, then gave a great closing statement, telling the jury that I was guilty of speeding, but not OUI. That's exactly what the jury came back with - guilty of speeding (a minor charge), and not guilty of OUI. I got my life back and can't thank Joe enough.

    The best lawyer I had to ever deal with. Very experienced in the field and knows what he's talking about. I put my trust in Mr. Waldbaum and he didn't let me down, kept me updated with the case. Always made sure I knew the date was coming up, what court room, and what to do. If your fighting a OUI charge, call him! He got me off and that's not all... He even waived the last payment so I could go out and celebrate with a few friends, very nice guy!

    • I do not recommend Joseph Waldbaum.
    • I hired Joseph more than 3 years ago.

    Lazy. I hired Mr Waldbaum on a 1st offense OUI. He met me at the court house and told me to take a plea right away. He had a folder of pre fab directions as to what I need to do after court. I ended up on probation for a year and paying through the nose. I would have gotten the same deal with out him.

      Lawyer Comment:

      Note that client did not reveal how high the breath test reading was, performance on all the field sobriety tests, whether we could avoid further RMV suspensions by negotiating a plea, etc. We do three full written analyses of all these for all clients. It is then the client's choice how to proceed.

    • I recommend Joseph Waldbaum.
    • I hired Joseph more than 3 years ago.
    • Joseph handled my DUI & DWI matter.

    Attorney Waldbaum was beyond a superior choice to select for my DUI case. He was well experienced with DUI cases and it showed as all my charges were dismissed after a bad accident. He wasted no time telling me what to expect without giving me false hopes about my case. He quickly responded to the civil charges of the refusal to blow and had the charges dismissed, which earned my license back while I was awaiting the criminal case. The odds of receiving a not guilty verdict on the criminal charges did not seem good, but he attacked the case with a well thought out and rehearsed strategy that weakened the DA's case. I was more than satisfied with his services because now I can get back to my life and support my family with no worries. Attorney Waldbaum's experience pays when you need it most because he knows what to do from beginning to end. He did not leave one stone unturned in his thoroughness of my defense. He gains my highest support after the work he was able to complete for me. Thank you Joe!
