Two California Driver’s Get Lucky In Massachusetts
MP, a forty year old man, had default warrants outstanding in criminal cases in Lowell District Court, Somerville District Court, Chelsea District Court and Woburn District Court. The warrants dated back to 1989 and 1990 when MP lived in Massachusetts. In mid 1990 he moved to California leaving all the warrants outstanding in Massachusetts. In 1991 he was convicted of rape in California and then served 16 ½ years in prison in California. In 2008 he was released from prison and tried to get a California license. His driving privileges in Massachusetts had been revoked because of all the warrants. Attorney Lewin filed Motions in all the Massachusetts Courts where he had outstanding warrants to get the warrants cancelled and to get the criminal cases dismissed. Every warrant from each court was cancelled and all the criminal charges were dismissed. After tying up some loose ends at the Registry of Motor Vehicles, MP’s driving privileges in Massachusetts were reinstated on March 23, 2010 and he was then able to obtain a California license. MP never had to come to Massachusetts. Attorney Lewin was able to get all the cases resolved in his absence. MP is now driving around in his 1966 Chevrolet Super Sport!
JM, a fifty-eight year old chemical engineer, resides in California. In 1990 he came to Massachusetts to attend a course in Cambridge. While driving on Storrow Drive he was involved in a collision and did not stop. He was subsequently stopped by the State Police and issued a citation for Leaving the Scene of a Property Damage Accident. When his course in Cambridge was finished in he returned to California and never attended to the Leaving the Scene case. The case went into default status and a warrant issued against him. In 2009 JM went to renew his California license and California refused to renew it because of the outstanding warrant in Massachusetts. JM wrote to the Court (Charlestown District Court) and he called the Court and they told him he would have to come out to Massachusetts. JM retained Attorney Robert Lewin and within 28 days the warrant was recalled and the case was dismissed without JM having to come here. One trip to the Registry of Motor Vehicles cleared his Massachusetts Suspension and on March 25, 2010 California reinstated his driving privileges. JM is a happy camper.
