Can I sue a drunk driver who hit my park car
I was at work and the dishwasher came and told me a man just hit your car
That he was drunk doesn't add much but yes - his insurance should cover your damage and you can sue him if it doesn't.

Can I get help for having a 3rd and 4th DUI felonies reduced to misdemeanors in hope of regaining my MI Gaming License back?

Reinstating a revoked license after 3 OUIL convictions.
I had my first OUIL in 2006, second and third in 2011. I have been sober since 10/12/11, completed 2 inpatient alcohol rehabilitations, did 7 1/2 months in Oakland Co. jail, and completed 4 years of felony probation. I need to start working on obtaining my drivers license again. I was told to wait until 1 year after the completion of probation with 1 A.A. meeting weekly, a psychological exam, and letters of recommendation from numerous sources. Is there any other advice that can be given to make sure when I go in front of the board I'm not denied?
It's a very complicated and demanding process with one very simple answer: Retain an attorney who handles license...
Can I get help for having a 3rd and 4th DUI felonies reduced to misdemeanors in hope of regaining my MI Gaming License back?
I have a family member who has in the last 6mos received 2 DUI's in the course of one night, which caused him to get a 3rd and 4th DUI all within 30 minutes of each other. This person was on there way home after the 3rd and explained to the officer that he was on route to their house. He was stopped because of the expired paper in his window for having had his plate taken for the second DUI and suspended license as they were on their way home from work. As a result he has lost his gaming license and career. This person has since served 90 days total in jail and a abundance of fees are being paid out. They are now trying to regroup while turning their life around. They are now looking for a good DUI attorney to help get the 3rd &4th DUI reduced too misdemeanors in hopes of regaining their Michigan gaming license back and career, They have received all DUI's in a course of 3 years at the age of 45 with no prior criminal history. They are educated with no prior anything all while living and growing up in the city of Detroit. I would like to see nothing more than for them to get a second chance and their career back.
If fees are already being paid out, and 90 days have been served in jail time, than that would indicate up front to me...

Do I have to do PBT testing even when I move outside of the US, to Europe?
I've been sentenced with an OWVI. Now, after 5 month I filed a motion for an early termination of probation due to the fact that my company send me to Europe (6 months probation left when I have to leave), the court denied to let me off completely. They agreed to write-in reporting AND PBT testing - EVEN when I move out of the country forever??? I figured out that the device is not working in EU. I don't want to cause any violation. I wouldn't have an issue with write-in reporting but I'm concerned about the PBT testing? What can I do to highlight the issue that the device is not working in EU? Thank you
better check with the country where you are intending to reside--they may not allow someone on active probation to...
