Do I need a DUI lawyer for first offense, out of state?
I had not had a drink for about 3 hours when I started driving. A man stopped me at a toll both, said I drifted lanes and was drunk, took my keys and threatened to punch me. He called the police, I passed the field sobriety test. The police said I passed but thought I might be on the edge of legal intoxication. They said they would like me to take a breath test. I told them I didn't want to since I passed the field tests, but said if I didn't they'd make me take a blood test at the station. So I did and blew .13. Said they wanted to take me to the station for the blood test, and once there, I said I didn't want to take any more tests. My court date was transferred and set for July 29. This is a first offense. I'm only in Delaware for the summer and live in Georgia.

Wife was glanced by a drunk driver, which caused a larger accident
She was hit on the back left side of her car (drunk had gotten into a turn lane, then decided she didn't want to turn, so tried pulling back into traffic) which caused my wife to careen out of control and into oncoming traffic. Thankfully, the accident wasn't as bad as it could have been, but the car is totalled. The driver and passenger were both legally drunk, driver arrested and taken away. The car is in the tow yard now, and both it and driver are from out of state. Not sure what insurance will cover, but another car hit my wife's when she crossed into oncoming traffic, so we are without a car and may have to pay damages to that driver and for a fence that was damaged. My wife was cited for inattentive driving, but I got photos today of both her car and the drunk's car, as well as the

Daughter got a DUI in GA and has a delaware license. Her GA attorney is telling her to get a GA license bc it easier to defend?
My concern is now the DUI will be on her GA license forever as they never takes it off and on any future state she will reside in. If GA is not part of the driver compact will Delaware ever know she got the DUI in GA. I know she has to do the penalty's and pay the fines imposed by GA but I have concerns about her getting a GA license.
I don't know Georgia law or why she is being advised to change her license. It may be because the terms of a first...
