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.

I was arrested for speeding and dui after field test. I took blood test. When released I was NOT given a citation or ticket.
I was instructed I was pulled over for just speeding. Field test went well. I have a fused spine and one leg longer than other.
Here in Georgia, even if you aren't issued a citation, an officer can still take out a warrant to prosecute.
Should I take the first offer?
My friend was arrested for driving on a revoked for a DUI in Tennessee. Her court appointed attorney said she should take the first offer from the DA, which includes jail time. I had a lawyer a few years ago who did NOT take the first offer and I got a better deal in my DUI case. But this is a driving on a revoked case. Plus, to take the first offer also means she will be put on PSI probation, a private company that tries to keep you coming back as long as possible. When I took my case upstairs, I was allowed to be put on state probation, which is much better and not as rigid or rule-crazy. Should she say no to the first offer and get the case taken upstairs? Is that possible in a driving on revoked case?
Ordinarily, the government is required to show that someone knew they were driving on a revoked license. This means...
