I missed my recorders court date for a DUI yesterday. What should I do?
I had made a honest mistake by looking at the wrong continuance of arraignment sheet from a previous date.
Contact the court clerk asap! Depending on the speed of the clerk there may or may not be a warrant for your arrest....
Charged with DUI less safe in Gwinnett, GA and have some questions....
I did my field sobriety tests, blew in the breathalizer the officer gave me at the scene, and was read the complied consent card. I was never told my BAC before being arrested or given a test at the station for that matter. I also did not receive a form 1205 to suspend my license so Im not sure if I need to go through that step before court. I did send the ALS form to the DMV just in case though with the $150. I also do not currently have a lawyer and am hoping to get a public defender at my arraignment. If my income is too high to qualify, will I be sentenced that day without a lawyer? Anything I can do on my own before my court date to be better prepared?
You should have the opportunity to get a "reset" -- a new court date to allow you an opportunity to speak with a lawyer....
Got a DUI less safe on post and going through the GOMOR process, what should I expect and do?
Got charged with the DUI charges on a military post on 2AUG14 to include failure to report, failure to stay in lane and flee from scene of accident (not sure if they are the correct phrases). Court date is not until November. It wasn't a situation where I went out partying/drinking with buddies. I was in my room drinking dealing with personal issues and I just blacked out and only remember flashes of what happened. I don't know if I need to add anymore details in this section. I have never been in any situation of this sort and do not even know where to start.
Can you first tell us exactly in WHICH court you are to appear? Generally, all charges occurring on military/federal...
I'm 19 years old. . Trying to join the military. How should I handle my first D.U.I.?
I was drinking Thursday night and decided to drive. The officer said I was going 95 and he smelled alcohol to make things short I Took a breathalyzer got 0.74 at the station. Also charged with speeding, and minor in possession.
I strongly recommend you hire an experienced attorney to help you minimize the ramifications that you are facing....
Would it look bad if the mother of my child gave up her older child last year and got a D.U.I this year?
I'm trying to fight for full custody for my child which I just found out she had an D.U.I this year. Plus she had gave up her older child to her mother. Shes even allow other men to sleep with her while baby is in the room. On top of it her parents are going through an ugly divorce which the mom and dad were both found unfit parents through the state. Which their son got taken away from the state.I have been helping out supporting the child now the mother is stopping me from seeing her after she knew I was fighting for custody. Do you see a good chance?
Yes, DUIs aren't exactly good things for a persons record. That said, If you haven't heard from an attorney on Avvo,...
How do I meet with my prosecutor before my appointed court date?
I was recently arrested for first-offense DUI. After consulting with several attorneys, I have decided against legal counsel for financial reasons, and plan to plead guilty pending a pre-trial meeting with my prosecuting attorney. As I understand it, this meeting would take place at Recorder's Court on the date of my hearing, as it would be near impossible to contact the prosecutor before then. I just want to have all of my bases covered and know what I should do/expect when I arrive, or if I should make arrangements before hand so I can take care of it before my court date. Thanks
Since you are entitled to a lawyer if you are unable to afford one, why would you represent yourself? Request a court-...

It is. It all depends on the facts. Feel free to reach out to my office and lets chat about the details.
