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.

DUI arrest with multiple traffic violations
One of my friend arrested for DUI with several other charges. He is undocumented immigrant so I do not know if some one will help him or not. some one has already pay bond amount 10% for him. but he was put under 'immigrant hold". not sure, he has to face criminal changes or he has to face a deportation charges or both. As a friend , i am LPR so i am afraid that if i go to jail to meet him or if I help him in hiring attorney. will this has any impact on my LPR status and getting my citizenship. Also would like to know that if he does not hire attorney and pled guilty then he got convicted for all the seven charges. and how he requested public defense attorney for his criminal case. He is alerady under the medication of acute psoriasis so i am not sure that he is able to get the treatment for the same in jail.
Your friend has to face both Immigration and the state court system. They are two separate issues that are connected...
