3RD OFFENSE; ACCIDENT
MANDATORY JAIL AND FELONY CONVICTION AVOIDED

'The facts of my case were not good at all. I admitted drinking shots and even told the cop I didn't know how many I'd had. On the day my case was scheduled for jury trial, Joe managed to negotiate a deal where no jail was involved and no felony conviction. He's an exceptional lawyer and has obviously been practicing DUI defense a long time.   I strongly recommend him to anyone who finds himself in this kind of trouble.'

'A DA TOLD ME HE'S THE ONLY GUY TO HIRE'
3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED

After refusing the breath test, the RMV suspended my license for 3 years. That meant a  2 hour commute each way every day.  Joe guided me through the process of how to fight this and won. I'm happy to speak to anyone who wants to call me to verify this. 

CLIENT'S THANK YOU NOTE: "Thanks for calling today before court. I can't begin to tell you how much easier my life is now that you got my license back. I am in the process of moving closer to work. Without my license it might have taken another month or 2 since I did all the moving myself and had to depend on friends to drive me and a car full of boxes back and forth. With the license I did it in 3 days."

NOT GUILTY; OUI-DRUGS 2ND OFFENSE

Client was seen by off duty cop to cross center line 6-7 times and once go entirely into opposite lane then run through a 4 way stop sign. He admitted to taking Vicodin and according to the arresting officer failed the one leg stand and the nine step walk and turn field tests. Despite the testimony of three officers at trial, he was found not guilty.


BRIAN; 508.485.7525
12.4.13; MARLBORO
HE BEAT MY 2 OUI CASES 10 YEARS APART
ONE WITH A BAD ACCIDENT

In '03, he won a motion to suppress the stop of my car so all evidence was thrown out and the case was dropped. In '13, I was in a bad accident and both vehicles were totaled. At jury trial, the cop testified I had slurred speech, swayed and admitted drinking 3 beers [but a six pack missing 5 beers was found in my truck]. Joe got all my statements after Miranda thrown out, convinced the jury the accident wasn't my fault and asked them to consider why the cops never made a video of me with their cameras at the station or the cell phones in their pockets. Pretty smart.  Not guilty!

BEATS ALL 3 CHARGES:
OUI 2ND OFFENSE, SPEEDING, LANES VIOLATION

'It was really something to watch Joe argue his motions to suppress evidence. He  was very clever and kept out lots of bad stuff.  During my two day trial, when everybody else went to lunch, he stayed at the defense table to prepare his questioning of the state trooper who testified I almost hit a guardrail, had slurred speech and admitted drinking. But when he said I fell down "face first" while telling me how to do the walk the line test, Joe showed the jury he never wrote that in his police report. He's a skillful drunk driving defense attorney and I highly recommend him to anyone facing an OUI charge.  

'HE'S A VERY DECENT PERSON TOO. YOU COULD DO NO BETTER.'

'The passengers in the other car said I crossed the center line and came right at them.  I admitted it was all my fault and they testified I was drunk and acting bizarrely when I approached their car to apologize. I also told the cops I had taken a couple of pills in addition to the alcohol. The days I spent in Court with Joe I was impressed with his intelligence.  He is an outstanding profesional.

Not only did Mr. Waldbaum investigate every avenue to get my license back, he maintained thorough communication with me throughout the entire process.  He quickly answered all my questions and actually hand delivered to me at my  place of work the order reversing my 3 year refusal suspension while the case was still going on!  A truly pleasant experience!

3 YR REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED WHILE CASE PENDING
ROLLOVER ACCIDENT - 2ND OFFENSE
NOT GUILTY: BOTH OUI & NEGLIGENT OPERATION

'You didn't yes me to death like other OUI lawyers I spoke to or give me false hopes we'd beat the case. You actually told me it'd be a hard case to win and presented the worst case scenarios too. I couldn't believe it when you got my license back a few weeks after I refused the Breathalyzer. Instead of suffering through 3 years with no license, I was driving to and from Court legally while the case took 16 months. During trial, you had an answer for everything and even made the DA look silly. Plus you continued working at the defense table when everybody else went out to lunch! It was like watching something out of a movie. I can't thank you enough, Joe.'

THE JURY TOOK UNDER 20 MINUTES TO ACQUIT ON BOTH CHARGES.
'IT WAS LIKE WATCHING SOMETHING OUT OF A MOVIE.'

JOHN: 508.446.5147
10-30-13; DEDHAM
'STRAIGHT-SHOOTER; COMPLETELY HONEST.
EARNED EVERY DIME OF HIS FEE'

I was facing four charges. Joe didn't promise me the world or sugar coat anything. He told me he'd fully investigate the case before advising whether to go to trial. He laid out everything in three detailed written reports as clear as could be and told me I had a chance to win. He carried himself beautifully in court at the pretrial hearings and finally at trial.  He was worth every damn dime.

10.22.13; MILFORD, WORCESTER
OVER LIMIT .15 BREATH TEST, 3RD OFFENSE:
NOT GUILTY ....FOR THE 2ND TIME!

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.

3 LANES VIOLATIONS, 4 BEERS AND A MAI TAI.
NOT GUILTY - LICENSE RESTORED 2ND OFFENSE

Cop saw 3 lanes violations, testifed client had slurred speech, bloodshot, glassy eyes, first said he had "4 beers," then later "4 beers and a Mai Tai." I got cop to admit client had no difficulty finding and delivering his license and registraiton, thus his fine motor skills were normal. Plus he had no difficulty exiting the car and walked fine. After the not guilty verdict, I convinced Judge to restore his license despite his 3 year refusal suspension for his second offense.

EVERYTHING WORKED OUT EXACTLY AS I HAD HOPED.'

TWICE ARRESTED FOR 2ND OFFENSE
TWICE NOT GUILTY !

Joe got me a not guilty in 2011 but then in 2013 I caused an accident and got arrested again.  The cops testifed 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.

CHARLES; 978.621.1744
9-12-13; WOBURN
3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION REVERSED AFTER 2ND OFFENSE

Client was charged with a second offense OUI and his license was suspended for three years for refusing the breath test. I advised him how to challenge this within the required fifteen day period and then appealed the RMV's  denial to a Judge in Court. After presenting similar cases decided in my clients' favor from ten other judges, he ordered  the three year suspension lifted and restored my client's license. This saves him the almost three hour commute to and from work every day.

CLIENT: "YOU ROCK, JOE. YOU'RE THE MAN"


ROB: 508.769.4407

NOT GUILTY; LICENSE RESTORED NEXT DAY

Hiring Joe was the best decision I made. He was no-nonsense and straightforward through the whole process. His was able to present his knowledge of OUI law to me in a way I could understand. Going to trial with him was an impressive sight. He was ready for everything and very thorough in presenting my case. When all was done, having him on my side was a blessing and resulted in a not guilty verdict and restoration of my license the next day. I'd recommend him to anybody.

Your rapid succession of clever and thorough questions left the officer off guard and uncertain. (I was struggling to hold back a smirk since I knew it wouldn't look good.)  It's clear you've tried many a drunk driving case and I am very glad I hired you.

2ND OFFENSE, SPEEDING, NEGLIGENT OPERATION
ALL 3 CHARGES DISMISSED

I sped into a parking lot at 40-50 mph, was surrounded by 3 cops, failed the field tests and was arrested. Joe kept me informed about my case from the beginning and his in court presentations were great. When the DA wasn't ready for a Hearing for a second time, Joe asked the Court to dismiss the case. He read aloud from his notes how many times the DA had delayed and which Judge had said what about it. The clerk then told the Judge that what Joe said was "all accurate."  The Judge then agreed with Joe. He dismissed my case. Plus the Negligent Operation and Speeding charges.

2ND OFFENSE; 3 CAR ACCIDENT
THEN NOT GUILTY AT TRIAL

I didn't know I lost my license for 3 years for refusing the breathlyzer 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.

I was stopped for multiple lane violations. I told the Trooper I had smoked a joint and had 2 beers 20 minutes ago. He noted a "blank stare" on my face and that I was unsteady on my feet. He said I failed the 3 field sobriety tests and arrested me. I never had any doubts in Attorney Waldbaum's abilities. He was always on time and prepared for every Court date for the year it took to go to trial. He wrote full reports every step of the way to  help me make all the right decisions. (Obviously.) Call me.  I'll gladly tell you.

NOT GUILTY; 2ND OFFENSE; LICENSE RESTORED

First I told the cop I had two beers, then three. Then after the field tests I admitted drinking "Like, six beers." Joe somehow managed to get that final very incriminating statement thrown out at a Motion to Suppress so we then had a fighting chance at trial. Then when he got in front of the jury he totally debunked the field tests the cop said I failed. After the not guilty verdict, he convinced the judge to order my license restored immediately. One very persuasive fellow.

FAILED BREATH TEST AT ROAD BLOCK
CASE DISMISSED

Client smelled of alcohol, had glassy bloodshot eyes and admitted drinking 4 beers an hour ago. He was shaking badly during the sobriety tests and as a result was arrested. He failed both breath tests over limit at .09 and .10 but could not accept a CWOF due to his job so we fought. On the Motions date, the cops were not summonsed so I asked the Judge to mark the Docket "No further continuances." On the 2nd Motions date, the breathalyzer operator could not attend and the DA asked for yet a third date. I argued vigorously against giving the Commonwealth 3 bites at the apple and the second judge agreed. Case dimissed.

OUI AND DRUG POSSESSION CHARGES DISMISSED

Client was in a bad accident. The EMTs reported to the police they thought he had been drinking and the cop noted a strong odor of alcohol on his breath as well as an inability to understand questions he was being asked.  He was taken to the hospital for testing and then was charged with OUI-Alcohol and Illegal Possession of Drugs. During the one year the case took, I conducted painstaking discovery and convinced the DA to drop all three charges on the date of the Motion to Suppress Evidence.

I was arrested for my second offense and refused to take the breathalyzer test when I reached the police station. The RMV issued a three year long license suspension.  I thought my license was simply gone for three full years and the whole thing was hopeless. But Joe obviously knows this practice area better than anyone else. He actually drove out to my house to bring me the order giving me back my license. How many lawyers would do that?

FAILED BREATH TEST BUT
DONE ALMOST 1 HOUR AFTER DRIVING

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.

At my jury trial, two cops testified that I had a strong odor of alcohol, slurred speech, and glassy bloodshot eyes. The arresting officer said I was "swaying in my lane" for over a mile but as, Joe dramatically pointed out in Court, she hadn't written that in her report. He then demonstrated the field sobriety tests in front of the jury box to show how hard they are and how well I had performed at 2 AM.

.15 BREATH TEST - CASE THROWN OUT OF COURT

I was arrested for a Boating DUI and blew an over limit .15 and failed the field tests.  If I had gone with anyone else I would have just pled it out but, boy, am I glad I chose Joe as my Attorney. I knew he was good as soon as I spoke to him. He's extremely well-spoken and very impressive in Court. Plus, he got the cop so messed up he ended up red-faced on the witness stand. I swear, you could have heard a pin drop during his cross-exam. Every one in the Court room was hanging on his every word.

.19 BREATH TEST, FAILED ALL FIELD TESTS, 2ND OFFENSE

Client waved to a passing cop with his keys in his hand and told him he was having trouble starting his car. They stopped, noticed slurred speech, and he failed all the field tests. At the station, the breath test registered .19, almost two and one half times over limit!  At trial, although 2 cops testified, I argued neither could attest that he had placed the keys in the igniton or when he had done so. Plus, I was able to prove the battery was dead and thus he had the additional defense of "factual impossibility." Not guilty 2nd offense.

NOT GUILTY AT TRIAL
I was arrested for my 2nd offense. The arresting detective said I had very thick and slurred speech and was unsteady on my feet. Plus, I admitted drinking two gin and tonics and one 16 oz. beer shortly before driving. The booking sergeant testified I had red, glassy and bloodshot eyes and in his opinion I was under the influence of alcohol. I even admitted I felt the effects of the alcohol! I took the breath test at the station and failed it over limit. Joe won the case and avoided a two year loss of license and thousands of dollars in fines and fees.

After getting arrested for my 2nd offense, I googled MA OUI lawyers and saw Joe had won 75% of his trials. The officer testified he saw me swerve from lane to lane without signaling and measured  me speeding 30 mph over the limit. He also said I failed all the field sobriety tests: the ABCs, one leg stand and 9 step walk and turn test. Joe argued to the jury that he hadn't written down whether I was wearing high heels. Also that I was nervous due to the presence of 3 cops and 3 cruisers.  I cried after the not guilty verdict.

He recommended I not plead out but instead try the case. At trial, not just one but two officers testified they thought I was "under the influence of alcohol." Joe convinced the Judge otherwise and then convinced him to order my license restored immediately. He thought of everything and did everything. I can't recommend him highly enough.

He was able to explain exactly what will happen with each court hearing and eliminate my anxiety.  His years of experience has helped him build relationships with many contacts in the legal system and he got me a quick trial and a not guilty. When I had trouble getting my license back at the RMV, he was able to help push through my paperwork and get it back the same day.  I strongly recommend him to anyone seeking OUI counsel.

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

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 reverse my five year refusal suspension and restore my license - which got us back in the news papers again!

The police officer followed me 1.5 miles at 45 mph only 2 car lengths behind then stopped me because i swerved over the fog line by a foot or so.  I told him I was nervous because he was so close behnd me. He said my eyes were red and glassy, my speech slurred and I failed all the field tests so he arrested me for my 2nd offense. Joe brought a Motion to suppress the stop of my car and submitted cases to the Court supporting his argument. I never thought you could get DUI cases dismissed but the Judge concluded there was no cause for the stop. Joe then followed through to get my 3 year refusal suspension reversed and the  DA filed this document dropping all charges:

At the Motions hearing, he methodically documented an extensive laundry list  of things the Trooper had done all wrong. Once the Judge allowed his Motion to Suppress evidence, the DA dismissed the case, writing "there is insufficent evidence to proceed with the prosecution at this time."

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.

That allowed me to drive legally during the months it took to go to Trial.  At Trial, he was completely prepared for the cross exam of all the officers and got me a not guilty.

Many, many thanks for your support through it all.  I think had you not done the "Motion to suppress," things could have been quite different.  I know that this Thanksgiving will be a better one once you got the DA to reduce my 3rd offense to avoid mandatory jail for me. Please let me know if you ever need a referral to someone who is looking for a great Massachusetts OUI Attorney (phone is fine).

Kindest regards, Cynthia

2 OTHER OUI LAWYERS SAID I COULDN’T DRIVE FOR 4 YEARS
BUT NOW I’M DRIVING AGAIN BECAUSE OF JOE.
Two other Massachusetts OUI Attorneys said I wouldn't be able to get a license again for four full years.  Joe reduced my three year refusal suspension to just six months and saved me two and one half years without a license. I’m so glad I was recommended to him.  He’s pure gold.

"JOE SAVED ME 3 YEARS WITHOUT A LICENSE.
I SWEAR HE KNEW MORE THAN THE JUDGE."

"He was awesome for me. I called him at 3 AM and he called me back at 4 AM! I filled out paperwork online on his website and he met me the next morning in Court.  He had stuff highlighted and was all prepared. I didn't have to say anything to anybody. Though I didn't take the breathalyzer, the Judge ordered my three year refusal suspension overturned. Joe made everything so easy. I have nothing bad to say about him. He's awesome."

3RD OFFENSE
CASE THROWN OUT AND LICENSE RESTORED DUE TO ILLEGAL ARREST

Joe paid attention to every minor detail and followed every possible lead. He brought a Motion to suppress the stop of my motorcycle proving the cop had followed me illegally into Somerville from Cambridge. He then brought another Motion to restore my license. The Judge agreed with both, my 3rd offense was thrown out of Court and I got my license back. I can’t thank him enough.

Instead of 6 months in jail and 13 years without a license I am driving again
all because I chose the right DUI Lawyer.

MALDEN - ROAD BLOCK
NOT GUILTY!
FAILED BREATH TEST AND 2 OF 3 FIELD TESTS
At the road block, I admitted to  the Trooper I had been drinking and smoked pot. He arrested me after the field tests and then I registered over limit on the breath tests too. Joe was always professional and courteous and his communication with me 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.

5 YEAR LICENSE LOSS REDUCED TO 9 MONTHS WITH WORK LICENSE

Thanks for all your help, and especially for your timely and quick responses when I was first faced with this situation. I look forward to many years of violation free driving after you reduced my five year refusal suspension to just 9 months. I've given up both alcohol and tobacco and will begin training for my 21st consecutive Boston Marathon in September. I will be glad to advocate on your behalf as a DUI Lawyer. All the best, Philip M.

'HE SEEMED TO BE THE ONLY ONE IN THE COURT ROOM WHO KNEW THE LAW'

“After my drunk driving arrest, I needed help bad. Facing my 2nd offense and my 2nd drug charge, I was sure I was headed for jail but ended up with only a 90 day license loss. It really was something to see you politely informing the Judge and the Court Clerk about the updated laws. Thank you, Joe.”

I can't imagine what might have happened if I didn’t have such a thoroughly prepared Massachusetts OUI attorney.

"IF IT WASN'T FOR HIM, I'D BE IN JAIL."

"Mr. Waldbaum first represented me in Brighton District Court in Boston and then again in Wrentham District Court when I foolishly drove after being suspended for OUI. Somehow, he avoided an otherwise mandatory jail sentence for me in Wrentham. I don’t know how he did it but I couldn’t recommend him more highly if you ever need DWI help. Feel free to call me for more information.

A very pleased client, Tim D."

"JOE WAS ALWAYS THERE FOR ME, MADE ALL THE RIGHT CHOICES
AND GOT ME A NOT GUILTY"

I was in a bad accident and rode for a while on a flat tire. After witnesses told the cop where I was, the cop first found the tire then found me stopped in the middle of the road. I was unsteady on my feet, smelled of alcohol, failed all the field tests and then fell over to the ground when I bent to tie my shoe lace.

 It was in the middle of the night when I filled out the “Free Consult” form on this website and within minutes I got a call from Joe himself, polite and re-assuring. Even with minimum time to prepare for the case next morning he was there in Court ready to go. He explained my options clearly, did not give me false promises or hopes and did not make decisions for me. He is well respected in Court and knows everyone there. During the entire process he never made me feel like I had to do it alone. 

Result: Not Guilty- Judge ordered my license immediately restored.

"LISTEN TO WHAT THIS DUI LAWYER SAYS AND JUST DO IT!"

Under Melanie’s Law, the RMV took my license away for 8 years for 3rd offense. I knew Joe had a handle on OUI law because he represented me --very successfully --5 years before. He appealed the new 8 year suspension, went to two Hearings before the Board, presented the records he had found -- from 25 years ago! -- and finally convinced them to reverse the RMV’s decision. He saved my plumbing business from going down the toilet. No joke!

My license was restored immediately!

"GOT ME OUT OF BIG TIME TROUBLE
NOT JUST ONCE BUT TWICE"

My first arrest I blew an incredibly over limit  .32- four times the legal limit!  He arranged to have the case heard on the day before Christmas assuring me it was the best day of the year to get a good deal. He was absolutely right: I got just a slap on the wrist. Then when I got my 2nd offense during the probation period for my first one, he told me exactly what I needed to do to avoid jail time.

He was absolutely right both times. One incredible DUI Attorney.

3RD OFFENSE: JURY ACQUITS IN 10 MINUTES

I faced a possible six months mandatory jail sentence and a license loss of 13 years for a 3rd offense. Joe noted in the report the cop had seen me wearing eyeglasses when he stopped me but told me to take them off before I did the balancing tests. Nowhere in his report did he tell me to put them back on.

He's such a smart DUI Lawyer, he deliberately chose jurors who wore eyeglasses!

Joe asked the cop so many questions he had no idea how to answer. It was just really smart. He even impressed the Judge. They acquitted me in ten minutes and the Judge ordered my license restored immediately. You can't ask for a better Massachusetts OUI Attorney.

“HE'S THE BEST MASSACHUSETTS DWI ATTORNEY.
YOU’RE OUT OF YOUR MIND NOT TO HIRE HIM."

I was charged with my 3rd offense and faced a mandatory jail sentence. On the very first date Joe's in Court, he convinces the DA to charge me only as a second offender. Then, when we get in front of the Judge, he convinces her to treat me as a first offender AND waive the mandatory $1000 fine. Instead of potential jail and an 8 year license loss, now I can get my license back. Even the Judge said, "You made a very good argument, Counselor."

He's the best drunk driving lawyer you'll find in Massachusetts.

"MY WIFE SAID JOE COULDN'T WIN IT.
BOY, WAS SHE WRONG!"

Trooper saw me commit multiple lanes violations and blow through a Yield sign without slowing down. Then he testified I had slurred speech and had difficulty getting my registration out of the glove box, was unsteady on my feet exiting the car and had an ‘overwhelming odor of alcohol’ on my breath. After seeing the Police Report, my wife didn't think he could win it but Joe told me to try the case anyway. He was reassuring at all times and both amazing and incredible at Trial.

I got my license ordered restored the same day the Judge found me Not Guilty

"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 situaiton and then your high level of professionalism in the court room I was left  knowing I could not be in better hands."

I FACED DRUNK DRIVING CHARGES AND 3 FELONIES

I was charged with  DUI and was facing a total of 8 charges including 3 felonies. I was told by another lawyer I was certain to end up with a ‘slew of guilty findings’ and lose my license for at least one and a half years. Somehow, Joe got half of the charges dismissed outright at the very first date and I was then eligible for a work license the same week.

NO JAIL: 3RD OFFENSE REDUCED TO 2ND
"JOE BASICALLY SAVED MY LIFE"

I was 17 and 18 when I got my first 2 OUIs. Arrested again at 35, under Melanie’s Law, I was charged with a 3rd offense, a felony, and faced a minimum 6 months in jail. Joe wrote a glowing letter to the DA’s office, detailing the reasons why the charges should be reduced. He knew exactly how to negotiate with the DA and the judge to reduce the charges. On the very next Court date, that’s exactly what happened.

I received no jail and can continue to support my wife and 3 children thanks to him.

" I HIRED THE RIGHT ATTORNEY"

I was arrested for my second offense and hired a local Attorney. He did nothing for four months and then told me I'd lost my license for three years and there was nothing that could be done about it. But after viewing Atty. Waldbaum's videos and website for two hours, I realized I'd hired the worng man. When I switched to Joe, he pulled my driving record first thing and told me I had not in fact suffered any three year suspension but that my license was still active. He sent me long detailed reports on everything including how to deal with the Registry. I wished I'd hired him right off the bat.
