Fairfax Law

Missouri DWI.
I am an Illinois resident and have an Illinois drivers license. I was charged with DWI in Missouri in August. It was my first time ever being charged with any type of crime or alcohol problem at all. I am 58 years old. I received in the mail today a notice telling me that I lost my administrative hearing that I had on December 18 with findings of fact and conclusions of law. It lists things that I need to do in order to get my privilege to drive in Missouri back reinstated. But, what I want to know is what do I need to do to protect my driving privilege in Illinois? As I understand it, MO will send this violation to Illinois and they will punish me under the laws of Illinois as if the DWI occurred in Illinois, is that true? Additionally, I plan to hire a lawyer to file for a trial de novo in Missouri. Does the trial de novo have any affect on the suspension? So, I need to know how my driving rights in Illinois will be affected, when they will be affected, and what I need to do and what I can do as far as getting a restricted driving privilege to be able to travel for work, etc in Illinois. Can someone please answer this for me thoroughly? Thank you so much!
A MO licensed attorney can try to get you a new hearing/appeal, but the license will remain suspended. IL will be...
Did I get a good deal on my dwi case?
First time offender in Missouri. I did refuse to blow so I was looking at a 1 year suspension. My attorney is supposed to be the best around for this and at $10,000 I expected a great outcome. The 1 year suspension was dismissed. I received an SIS, 2 years unsupervised probation and 40 hours community service. I feel this is the same deal everyone gets.
Sometimes you are just going to get what everyone else gets. it's not always up to the attorney, no matter how much...

After retaining a lawyer, is it normal for a lawyer to wait for charges to be filed before addressing pending charges?
My husband had 2 dui’s within 30 days apart, one in Kansas and one in Missouri with 2 minors in a car driving uncontrollably. The lawyer for the 2nd dui states they will do nothing at this time until charges are filed. Charges are pending a felony do to history of multiple DUIs and the only thing the lawyer has stated to wait until a warrant has been issued. Is this common practice ?
Ma'am, Based solely on the information provided, I can tell you that it is very common for an attorney to await the...

Is there an option to replace jail time with inpatient rehab treatment?
My husband who obtained a DUI in Kansas recently and 30 days later obtained one in Missouri. The 2nd DUI has additional charges with 2 minors in the car under the age of 14 and a BAC of .191 With past history DUI’s from over 10 years ago being in Missouri and now the two recent ones, I am trying to see what possible scenarios may happen with this and options. I know that jail time is apparent but due to the long history of alcoholism, treatment would be needed inpatient to avoid the effects of dry detoxing. I know that alcoholism has its long term mental effects which to me would create the normal rational person to think clearly in being realistic with decisions made over a period of time. Does the courts look at this in considerations of placing someone inpatient for treatment for a longer period of time versus behind bars for serving time?
Missouri will not be able to count the Kansas prior unless your husband had already been convicted prior to his new...
Will the board of pharmacy in Missouri reject my application for a dwi misdemeanor?
A year ago I received a dwi which got dropped to an sis. I provided all documentation along with a detailed written statement on what happened. I’m just scared thinking they will reject it since it is considered substance abuse.
I do not know the requirements for a pharmacist license in MO. You should be able to research this and see if your...
