What should I do?
I was convicted of a dui 5 years ago. As per the sentencing I took part in the idrc program. After the idrc program I was forced into mandatory counseling. I took an evaluation and refused at first. Eventually I went to counseling. I tested positive twice for a substance but after having the levels check it showed it wasn't high enough to prove use. Once the mandatory 16 weeks of counseling ended I was reccomneded for more treatment based off the positive tests. I spoke to the idrc after 6 months of back and forth and they told me all I had to do was be evaluated and if I was recommended for counseling to go if I wasn't then I was good. I had another evaluation and was told that due to my first evaluation 5 years ago that I had to go to further treatment. Should I retain an attorney
The answer is, yes, you can fight this. Hire a competent DWI attorney!
Can an empty bag be sufficient evidence to be charged with dui in if your a minor?
I was driving my truck that is licensed and insured when i got stuck on railway tracks due to ice, mind you that the track itself was covered in a two inch layer of ice . not ten seconds after i got stuck the railway crossings started flashing. The train was moving to fast to stop and pushed my truck into the railway crossing pole and knocked it down. After the police arrived they found an empty bag in the truck. I was never urine tested and they never finished the drug screen. I'm being charged with possession, careless driving, and a charge called "sloppy at railroad crossway" .

If papers cannot be located can we reopen a case to pay for bills for drunk driving case from over 14 plus years ago in NJ now?
My husband was hit by a drunk driver head on over 14 years ago which resulted in a Spinal fusion and his insurance company was and is NJM. He's recently had to have another spinal fusion due to loss of function in his left had in Nov. 2016. We cannot find the info. for the attorney they'd used back in 2002? I think. Is there any hope at all for us to get this reopened to cover all of his medical expenses since then and have his pay replaced for time he couldn't work?
The case is past the statute of limitations, so not getting reopened
Do I need to hire a lawyer for an upcoming court date for license suspension?
I have been pulled over 3 times while driving on a suspended license (2 in PA and 1 in NJ) and I have my first court date (in NJ) coming up. I do not know if I should hire a lawyer or not since I have read that imprisonment can be a possible punishment for the offense (although I am not sure if they are considering it my first or third offense since it's in a different state)
This is your first offense in New Jersey. You face $1250 in fines and surcharges and a 6 month suspension. These are...
Im facing a 2nd dui offense, the first being just under 10 years prior. My lawyer is painting a grim picture but wants me remain
...patient until he receives the discovery... ... I was pulled over for speeding and admitted to drinking 5 hours earlier. I have a witness to how much I drank and when I stopped drinking. I had 7 beers over a 5 hours period and then nothing for 5 hours afterwards, I felt I should be at or about zero and decided to drive the long ride home. I got pulled over, was asked to do the field test, felt as though I passed, but was asked to retake the eye test and he said i failed and arrested, i asked to do a breathalyzer to prove I was sober, was told they only have it in the station. At the station I was completely coherent and compliant to everything asked of me. Was told I had to wait 20 mins before I could test, he took me in the room and said I blew .09 (twice). I asked to see digital readout but was told I had to wait, never got to see it. Every BAC calculator I look at shows there's no way I could have blown .09. How is this possible? How grim is my case? Is my lawyer right to take a wait until discovery approach? Can or should I ask to have a 2nd/3rd, expert on my case? What are my chances/options? ...thanx for any advice
Nothing can be done before your lawyer right gets the discovery. This is the correct approach. After your attorney...
