Can a longtime permanent resident get citizenship if he had Felony DUI 18 years ago?
Neighbor is a permanent resident but went to prison 18 years ago for accruing 4 DUIs. No injuries or accidents and no children involved. Spent 14 months in prison. Nothing else before or after that and he has been a responsible business owner. Can he apply to become a US citizen? Or is it hopeless?
He/she should talk to an experienced immigration attorney who understands how criminal matters can impact...
Immigration U Visa. I was a passenger in a car that was being driven by an intoxicated driver. He lost control of the car at
70mph and crashed. I was injured. The driver had criminal charges and was put under arrest. Later I testified against him. My question is if this crime makes me eligible to apply for a non immigrant status U visa. The driver in question was my boss.
Not so simple. Not so fast. You first need to find an interested law enforcement agency to "sponsor" your "U" visa...
Would a DUI attorney that owns an insurance company that specializes in SR-22 be in conflict of interest?
I was recently arrested for a DUI and have been researching for an attorney. I decided to move forward and select this one particular attorney to represent me. It was not until after I had paid him that he disclosed in an email that he owns an insurance company and recommends it to start locking a good rate. Would this be a conflict of interest that he could not fight might case as well to potentially get me as a insurance customer. I signed a contract and I feel that if I release him as my attorney he might end up charging me a lot.
I'm not sure if owning an insurance company is against the State Bar rules but if you feel he is pressuring you to use...
What happens when the chemical test breathalyzer is done after three hours? Can the rising bac argument be strong in the case?
I was in an accident that caused me to be arrested for DUI. The other car hit me (and I recorded him admitting at fault). That happened at 8 pm. He ended up calling his son for assistance for some reason and his son showed up about 20 mins later and he smelled alcohol on me. So he called the coos. The cops showed up 10-15 mins later and I did tell them I had 2 shots and a beer about an hour before they showed up. They started to give me fst which they told me i seemed fine. Later they had me do the pas test. There I blew .13, .10 and .11 which was past two hours after the accident. I was arrested and the chemical test wasn't done until an hour later. There I blew a 0.11 twice. The citation noted 10:30 which I am assuming when they arrested at the accident location.
In general, the longer the time that elapses between the accident and the breath test, the less reliable the breath...
How can I dispute a penalty from my multiple offender DUI program?
I was two classes away from finishing my 18 month DUI program and I stopped going. After two years I tried to re-enroll to finish it up and was told that I need to restart it from the beginning because I exceeded the amount of time they allow to complete it. It seems rather excessive to me and I'm hoping that there is a way to challenge it.
Doubtful- too much time has past .
DOES MY EMPLOYER REQUIRE THAT I REPORT A DUI IF I AM CONVICTED?
IF MY EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT STATES THAT I MUST NOTIFY THE EMPLOYER OF A "CRIMINAL DRUG STATUTE CONVICTION FOR A VIOLATION OCCURRING IN THE WORKPLACE", DOES THIS MEAN I MUST REPORT A POTENTIAL DUI THAT I MAY RECEIVE? OR IS THIS SPECIFICALLY STATING THAT IT MUST HAVE OCCURRED ON THE COMPANY'S PREMISES? FURTHERMORE DOES A "CRIMINAL DRUG STATUTE" THIS EVEN PERTAIN TO ALCOHOL?
Good question. Although alcohol is a drug, that's probably not what is contemplated here. If the case is pending, there...
I am dealing with a DUI felony case in San Mateo county. Is it a bad idea to hire an attorney from a different county?
I'm concerned that San Mateo county is a bit different in its procedures for a lawyer from a different county and we're concerned about how relevant it is to consider an attorney's relationship with the DA of that county. Is the DA more likely to make better offers if they know/like/respect that attorney? How much weight should I put on this aspect vs. just being concerned in finding the best DUI lawyer I can afford?
Generally speaking, for a variety of reasons, it is a good idea to hire somebody with experience in the same county...
