Green Card renewal after DUI conviction
My green card expires in January of 2017. I am getting ready to apply for a renewal, I had a DUI conviction back in 2007 and 2013. What are the chances that my renewal will be denied or that I will be deported?
Yes, I know I made a mistake so I am not looking to be crucified for them, just looking for some help.
A green card renewal is not likely to be denied for 2 DUI convictions several years apart.

What happens when you get a 23152 (a) and a 23152 (e) on one violation ticket?
I got a DUI a week ago. I am over 21 years old. I am a first time offender. The officer put me in handcuffs but did not read me my rights because he did not take me to jail. He gave me the option to be taken to First Chance, which is a private clinic, where they took a blood test and housed me for 7 hours, releasing me the next morning.
I am wondering if I have two DUI's because there are two citations on the ticket, one for DUI and one for DUI DRUGS?
I am not very familiar with legal proceedings, as this is the first time I've ever come in contact with law enforcement. Admittedly, I am quite terrified.
It sounds like the arresting officer thought you were under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or both, so he cited you...

Can anyone recommend an attorney in the San Mateo area who specializes in filing the expungement form for a first time DUI?
I got a first time DUI misdemeanor in 2012 in San Mateo County, CA and have since completed all the fines and conditions. I kept a copy of all my records too. By the way, the DUI had no aggravating circumstances etc.
I am looking to get the DUI expunged. Can anyone recommend an attorney in the San Mateo area who specializes in filing the expungement form? I'd like to get an idea of cost of this legal service and the filing fee/s. I also no longer live in San Mateo, CA so while I don't anticipate that there may be need for a court appearance in this regard, I need to factor in this possibility that I may need representation by an attorney if the court required an appearance.
