El Dorado Law

I received a DUI I told my lawyer to check into my background they never did and theres absolutely nothing on my record I should have been able to divert my DUI but now I will be charged with it because the lawyer never looked into my background when specifically asked him to before we even went to court the first time so should i appeal my DUI conviction or fire my lawyer and file a complaint with the Bar Associationt?
If you are unhappy with your lawyer, get a second opinion (from a lawyer, not a website). No one here knows the facts...
I believe I can beat this case with a lawyer
You really should speak with an attorney immediately. The consequences of a diversion are nearly as bad as a...
Stopped for dui , and possesion of meth, and pot. Never been in trouble before . 54 years old ,
First of all I would contact an experienced DUI attorney in your town. Each jurisdiction handles cases differently.
No, but the consequences are often similar.
I fulfilled all but one obligation assigned by the judge upon my DUI sentencing. I have 20 treatment "classes" to attend and have only been to 4 so far. I'm still going and progressing very well. Fact is i wouldnt have been able to complete 20 classes in 3 months anyhow since they are once a week so i have to reappear next Friday. Unfortunately, being truthful during the evaluation has not worked in my favor since the judge seems to be turning this into more of a marijuana issue than a DUI issue. What are the chances he will give me a UA when I go back to court and what happens if i fail? Before joining the Army 12 years ago it took 86 days to clear from my system and i didnt cheat even once. Will i immediately go to jail? Will he let me continue treatment? Please help
Every judge is different. In order to get the best educated best possible, you should contact a criminal defense...

You're in considerable amount of trouble. Testing dirty on a drug/alcohol test never works out well. Consequences are...
I am aware that this remains on my arrest record. I am also aware that sometimes Canada might see the criminal charges but might not have the updated information that the charges have been dismissed (as per completion of diversion period). I wanted to know if it was safe to make my travel plans. If I carry information regarding my arrest and case, and/or will it be a problem at all? If it shows I was arrested and that the charges were dismissed (not convicted) will they deny me entry anyway? Thanks
Call the Canadian consulate and ask. I suspect it will be no problem as there are no pending charges and no warrant...
