How do I go about finding a lawyer for a boating BUI in Peoria, IL?
There was a sting operation with DNR at the boat ramp. After my boat was loaded and on the trailer, a DNR officer approached me and asked to inspect my boat. I told him sure and my boat passed inspection (life jackets, fire extinguisher, etc). It was close to dusk and I didn't have my navigation lights on when loading. I told the officer that they didn't work and that's why I was loading the boat now, to get off the water before dark. The officer asked me to follow him, assuming I was getting a citation for the navigation lights, I did. I was asked to perform the heel/toe test. I did so with out problems. The officer asked me to stand on one foot and I said no, I'm not balanced enough to stand on one foot in any situation. He performed the eye test with light, he stated my eye twitched slightly. He then asked me to do a blow test, I asked to call my lawyer. I live in the state of iowa. The lawyer I called recommended I decline the blow test. I did. I also started video taping. There were issues with the battery not working on the blow test, 45 minutes later, they issued me a ticket. I need to find a lawyer in the Peoria area to represent me. Thank you

I got a DUI for the smell of pot in my car. I've never been in trouble before. What's most likely going to happen?
I was driving and the police pulled me over for no tail lights. When they walked up to the window they smelled pot and checked the car and didn't find anything.

Driving permit requirements

I have a petition to review on the petition to revoke from a DUI case in 2004. It has been 11 years so how does this effect me?
Got a DUI in 2004 and agreed to a plea. I did not meet the requirements and then missed court dates. I was picked up on the warrant and bonded out in Cook County. What does this exactly mean, is this a hearing or does this mean I am going straight to jail? The original plea was a mistake because my original lawyer did not show up and was forced into a terrible plea. Does the revoke mean the plea of guilty is thrown out and I can plead not guilty?
Your fact pattern is confusing and therefore impossible to answer. However, you would be far better served by...
