Will they drug test me for community service intake in Nassau county?
I have to do 35 hours of community service for CR in 5th,7th and unlawful poss. I've been evaluated by OASAS as not having a drug or alcohol dependence but I want to know if I am going to be tested the day of my community service intake.
It depends on the agency that you will be performing the community service for. In most cases the answer is no. They...
How should I go about this notice from the office of special counsel in Albany?
I received an order of revocation of my approval as a Point and Insurance Reduction Program Instructor through the DMV, via the special counsel located in Albany. I was not present for the alleged charges which resulted in revocation. I don't care about the revocation itself because I found a good job a long time ago in my field. All I did was sign up to be certified as an instructor. I never taught a class or did any of the claims on this notice, but am in violation of teaching a class that did not fulfill the required 320 minute time-frame and falsifying class info. The defensive driving course company is owned by a family friend who knows I did nothing wrong. There is no charge on the notice except a revocation of my certification as a driving instructor. But, I need to know if this will show up on my record, including a background check, because I have aspirations to work for the government. What type of lawyer could help with this matter? And do I have anything to worry about considering I'm not even a driving instructor.. ? Again, no charges are formed against me except notice of a revocation of my instruction certificate. Please help.
Without reviewing the revocation notice and any other info you may have, no one can give you a legal opinion. However,...
BAC pending
Last weekend I had a few drinks, my first drink was at 8:30pm and my last drink was at 12:30am. Within this timeframe I consumed three mixed drinks (vodka). I felt absolutely confident to drive and was pulled over and given a DUI. I blew a .07 at the police station around 2pm, but the results were insufficient and so about 40 minutes later they drew blood!! I can't understand how it's possible I blew a .07 with the amount I consumed, I FELT 100% fine and passed my fst's with no issue!!! I'm a female weighing in at around 112lbs. And I didn't eat much that day. Is it possible my blood could he higher than that ???? My life has been turned upside down.... Should'nt I have burned .01 per hour while drinking ? My BAC should have been .04
I would advise that you take a deep breath, and then speak to a lawyer or three in or near Garden City. There is no...

Do I need to hire a private attorney for a hardship hearing for a dui arrest?
I intend to hire an attorney for my actual court date. It seems like a waste to spend extra money at this point as I do not see the advantages of having my own attorney for the hardship hearing.
It is always advantageous to have an attorney at all stages of a DWI case. There are many attorneys that have a flat...

My lawyer did not show up for my NY DMV hearing for a refusal is this grounds for an appeal?
I was charged with a DWAI/combined. I submitted to a breath test and offered urine but refused blood (due to my anxiety and panic disorder which I take prescribed medicine for). What are my grounds for appeal? I was not able to appear at the hearing because I am a FL resident. My NY lawyer was supposed to show up at the hearing but failed to appear so I was automatically convicted of the refusal. This added an additional 6 months to my revocation. Is failure of my lawyer to show up at the hearing legal grounds for an appeal? Is having a documented anxiety/panic disorder grounds for an appeal? I need legal advice to appeal this decision in writing.
1. Appeals must be filed within 60 days of the hearing decision 2. Failure of Attorney to show will not result in...
