Not sure if MY DUI attorney is doing a good job.
Preliminary hearing has happened without the video evidence. The cop when asked why he felt I did poorly on the field sobriety test said it's in my notes and I don't have them. My lawyer only asked very few follow up questions to what the prosecutor asked the cop. He also told the officer several time he wasn't trying to badger him. Afterwards the judge scolded the prosecution for not being prepared but bound my case over and took my license for implied consent. I got SR22 insurance for work restricted license and have her nothing from my lawyer. I herd from other lawyers I had 10 days to file an appeal for the decision of taking my license. I brought this up to my attorney he has not returned my calls. Time is running out. What should I do?
If he won't return your calls, then go directly to his office. Or email him. Phone is not always the most convenient...

Can a family member appeal to the judge for a rehabilitation sentence in a DUI case?
My mother committed a 1st offense DUI roughly 3 weeks ago. Last night, she was arrested again for the same charge. I understand the jail time that she's facing and that she'll likely get "the book thrown at her" for two DUIs in 1 month, but my question is this: What are the chances that he'll sentence her to some sort of rehabilitation? Would it be helpful at all if I contacted the judge and appealed to him for this? Thanks so much in advance.
Yes, but only contact the judge in open court and do so through her attorney.

Is possible to be convicted of a DUI and be unaware of it?
Today I received a letter from the Dept of Homeland Security that my license had be revoked due to a DUI conviction in Feb of 2012 and that I could reapply for my license on April 17, 2013. I have never been arrested for a DUI or ticketed for the same. I have retained insurance, renewed my registration and license and obtained a professional healthcare license, and passed background checks for work in a ER past that date. I was just accepted to medical school starting in August and am afraid my status with them will be negatively affected by this. Can I be convicted with a DUI without ever being stopped for an alcohol related issue or ever receiving notification of said offense?
No. This sounds like a mistake. You should call the phone number listed on the letter you received and explain you...
