Do I need a attorney/lawyer for my dui case? It's today
I got a dui last year on November 2014 and it's June 2015 and I'm finally going to court for it. My charges were dui, tag light violation, failure to maintain lane. Two of these charges never happened, especially failure to maintain lane. I know i was maintaining my lane, and my tag light I know it worked but the dui I'm guilty of. Is their anyway I can say not guilty and battle those two charges? But it's also saying I'm not guilty to the dui? I don't have a lawyer or attorney, I need help on what to do? Or what to say? It's my first offense and i don't have money for a attorney or lawyer right now
If you can't litigate the case yourself seek the help of the public defenders office or appointed counsel. If this is...
Can my dui charge be dropped if I still haven't been to court?
I got a dui literally in front my house, ALMOST, made it in my driveway. I know it was the dumbest mistake to drive like that but it happened. This happened on October 2014 and its May 2015 and I have not been to court once. They told me on November 2014 through mail that my court date was gonna be on February 2015, well when it got to January they sent me another mail saying "your court date has been delayed" but I still haven't got anything through mail and its May 2015. They gave me a 180 day permit to drive but that time is already up and I need to get to work. I'm driving risky and I have no choice. I got bills that need paying and this dui.

What kind of test is used for a normal alcohol/drug screen in Hall County for misdemeanor DUI probation?
I have recently found out through a coworker that a test called Etg exists that can be set off by Listerine and hand sanitizer. I was never told about this test or told to avoid certain products. Is this test being used on me? Should I avoid eating food cooked in wine too? My wife uses it all the time. If it's just an ethanol test I won't be worried, but if it's this Etg test, I've researched it and read about a lot of false positives.
I do not know about Hall County, but the ETG test is more of a zero tolerance test that measures levels over a longer...
Do I have a strong case if I refused a breath test?
I was pulled over in November. The officer said he smelled alcohol and asked for a field sobriety test but I refused. He then placed me under aresst ? I was charged with dui and failure to maintain lane. What are my chances or options?
Hire a lawyer immediately. The fact that you refused, while good in that you did not provide evidence that could be...
What kind of alcohol test is used normally on probation for a DUI in Hall County? Is it an Etg test or just an ethanol test?
I am very curious as to which tests my urine is being subjected to.
As a defense attorney, I recommend that you stop trying to figure out ways to beat the test.
Can I get a refund if no ALS hearing date is scheduled?
DUI REFUSAL - After my plea entry of Not Guilty, my court date could be some time out. Should I wait until AFTER my jury trail to request the refund or is their a Statue of Limitations for ALS hearings?
What type of refund are you talking about? Are you wanting a refund from your lawyer, your bondsman or what?
Kids reporting my ex husband has been intoxicated during visitation -please help
I am the primary, physical custodian of my 2 children, ages 11 and 12. My ex husband has court ordered visitation 2 wknds/month. Over the past few months I have noticed both my kids saying they don't want to spend the wknd with their dad. Recently, they tell me he is constantly drinking alcohol around them, stumbling, talking strange and vomiting, etc. The kids also tell me they were made to ride in his car while he was driving drunk. With this information being relayed per my 2 kids, how do I protect them? I have no proof that any of this took place. My ex has a long history of alcoholism, but of course, I can't prove that either. Please advise.
You need to hire a good attorney and file a Modification of Visitation asap, alleging that he is intoxicated during hi...
