How difficult is it to get a dui trial postponed for 6 months after initial court date?
The reason behind this question is two things...1) It will give me more time to come up with the finances. 2) I am on unsuprivised probation until April 2015. I would like to be off that before the trial.
The criminal justice system will not be bending to suit your needs. Sorry, but you do not get what you want for the...
In regard to my recent dui, should I hire an attorney that practices in the city/county or an out of county attorney?
I have heard different opinions in this matter. I know of an attorney that has a great reputation but works 120 miles away from the city in which I was arrested. I was also told that an attorney that works often with in the jurisdiction that I was arrested would generally bring better results.
It can help to know the local system and the players. However, an out of jurisdiction attorney can find out a lot of...

Can I be convicted in Alabama of a DUI if my BAL was zero and my blood test for drugs was deemed "Not Applicable".
I was involved in a motor vehicle accident in which I bumped into the rear of a car at a stop light. When the police arrived they gave me a field sobriety test . At one point in the test I lost my balance slightly.
Of course you can. If a lack of test results was all it took to avoid conviction, everyone would simply refuse testing.

I have a no-contest DUI from 08/14 in Pensacola, FL - AL DL suspended - What do I do?
AL tells me FL must clear me from the National Registry of suspended drivers license. FL tells me I must go to an approved DUI Program/School. Neither will tell me where I can do this in AL (or in FL for that matter). I have been to the local AL office... no help. I have called, and emailed the FL authority - no help, and no response. My FL probation officer will not help either. He knows nothing, and will not lift a finger to find out what I need to do to clear the suspension. What do I do now?
This is not an uncommon situation. Have your attorney or hire one to get the judge in P-cola to authorize you to take...
