Can type 1 diabetes affect a breathalyzer ?
Got a DUI, I hadda take a series of 5 blows before it read anything. And I had a feeling it was way inaccurate. I was held overnight without my medication when I clearly told the officer that my house was less than 3 minutes away and that my insulin was there.

Can anyone recommend an attorney in the San Mateo area who specializes in filing the expungement form for a first time DUI?
I got a first time DUI misdemeanor in 2012 in San Mateo County, CA and have since completed all the fines and conditions. I kept a copy of all my records too. By the way, the DUI had no aggravating circumstances etc. I am looking to get the DUI expunged. Can anyone recommend an attorney in the San Mateo area who specializes in filing the expungement form? I'd like to get an idea of cost of this legal service and the filing fee/s. I also no longer live in San Mateo, CA so while I don't anticipate that there may be need for a court appearance in this regard, I need to factor in this possibility that I may need representation by an attorney if the court required an appearance.

Anything I can do to fight this?with my (2) dui's they are saying it's The 2nd time& I'm on probation until Nov this yr!!

(M) thinking it's a traffic ticket & assuming it was i wasn't too worried about it I never recieved anything in the mail,every time I looked my ticket up online on the San Mateo county court traffic website it would say case closed or paid! that wasn't the case...January I end up getting a "warrant" letter in the mail from Burlingame pd.I turned myself in, bailed out and got a court date. At court they had me fill out paperwork, all the judge said was I was approved for "the private defender program and to call next week" which I've been calling everyday since & my "assigned attorney" hasn't contacted me once! I'm frustrated because 1. I did not know my license was suspended 2.
