Do I necessarily need a lawyer present for my preliminary DUI hearing? Or are there other actions I can take?
In may I had an accident where I failed to perform duties at a stop sign and was therefore struck by an oncoming vehicle. At the time I was overly anxious (I have an anxiety related disorder that has been diagnosed) and failed the sobriety test. In the blood test the found Seroquel, a medication I have a prescription for but failed to mention at the time due to my anxiety at the situation. So now I am being charged with a DUI, howevery, I have a copy of the prescription (with dates proving that it was valid at the time of the incident). What is my best course of action?

How can I get my driver's license back?
I received a two first time DUI, that is what my lawyer said anyway, I have been paying for three years what I can afford every month. I need my driver's license back my mother just can't take me to work any longer. I tried to go to court after 3 years and filed a motion to reconsider my fines to get back my driver's license and the motion court wouldn't even hear it. What else can I do, I still owe over 3,000.00 and I have been paying every month without fail. Please let me know if I can do anything else? Thanks
