ACQUITS 2ND OFFENDER IN 15 MINUTES
With a lengthy record, this 2nd
offender motorcyclist was likely facing 180 days in jail
plus a 2 year license loss. The officer made him walk an "imaginary line" without
stepping off. At trial, I asked the officer, "Exactly
how wide was that imaginary line?" As he stammered
to answer, the jury got the point. They found my client
not guilty in 15 minutes.
"IF I DIDN'T
ADMIT I WAS DRUNK,
WOULD YOU STILL HAVE ARRESTED ME?"
= NOT GUILTY
A 2nd offender was stopped for going 71 mph in a 45 zone
and straddling the fog line. After failing 2 sobriety tests
and admitting to 4 drinks, he made the above statement to
the cop at the station after being arrested. I got the cop
to admit on the stand he waited in that area nightly because "he
caught a lot of speeders on that stretch." Then I demonstrated
the 2 sobriety tests in front of the jury, pointed out they
were done at 1 AM on the fog line of a highway with CARS
SPEEDING BY just 2-3 feet away.
(If convicted, my client would have lost his license for
2 years and his dream job as a cameraman at a top TV news
"WHEN THE JUDGE READ THE
MY MOUTH DROPPED!"
Dear Attorney Waldbaum,
Thank you so much for taking my case and working it as you
did. I am truly pleased with the outcome. After hearing the
District Attorney go on for it seemed like a lifetime...
I was resolved to the fact that I was going to be charged
with a felony. But when the Judge read the verdict, my mouth
dropped. I wasn't sure I heard it right, but I guess I did.
I hope I showed you appreciation outside the courtroom. I
was just so elated I wasn't sure I had. Thank you again for

2 OUI'S IN 10 DAYS - NO COMMITTED
"When you returned my call at 6 AM, I instinctively
knew I would not be alone in this. I watched people's reactions
to you in Court -- all seemed in agreement with you. You
don't waste time and you're courteous to the point of professional.
After all, how often does a Judge compliment a lawyer on
the handling of a case as he did you?"
