Can I get a license in another state if I was stopped for a dwi but my license is not yet suspended?
Okay if I got a dwi making this the 3rd one in 3 years. Can I get a license in another state if my license is still active and I haven't been to court and got a conviction? I know that opens me up to getting the new license revoked by the new state if I was convicted but if I don't go back to court I won't get convicted. Would this allow me to safely keep the new license? I also know that opens me up to a warrent out for my arrest but my state doesn't extradite across state lines for misdemeanor offenses. I'm just worried about keeping the new license.

Moving from NC to Texas on a limited driving privilege, due to a DUI. What's the way to go about getting my license in Texas?
I was convicted of my first DWI in North Carolina. I blew .10. I was given a suspended sentence. North Carolina law requires a one year suspension for first DWI and the judge gave me a limited driving privilege which is in effect until August 2016. I am moving to Texas in October. How can I drive legally in Texas? Alternatively, I may not completely move but will definitely spend some time in Texas, will my North Carolina limited driving privilege be valid?

My DUI was dismissed; can the DA re-file charges in the future?
In July of 2013 I rear-ended a car at a stoplight and was charged with failure to reduce speed and a DUI (this is in North Carolina.) After two years of this being continued by the state, due to cops not showing up and blood results not being back yet, the DA dismissed the DUI and I pled guilty to the accident. I started thinking though; when my blood results do finally come back from could the DA re-file the charge? Also, how would I go about getting the charge expunged from my record? Would I need to hire a lawyer again?
In NC, it's a DWI. Get a lawyer to check to see if your case was voluntarily dismissed "with leave" or not. If...
Do I need a criminal defense lawyer?
I got an underage drinking ticket at a traffic stop, blew a .03. I am 20 years old and I was wondering if I should get a lawyer to help with the process or if I should just go to court and plead guilty. Here are the numbers (G.S. 20-138.3) and (G.S. 18B-302(B)(3))
I would strongly recommend that you do speak to an attorney before just admitting to the crime by pleading guilty....
