Have any of you had the chance to work with Attorney Charles D Christmas in Amite , La
I'm interested in retaining Mr Christmas as my lawyer for my DUI case but I can't seem to find any information on him as to any of his accomplishments, cases won, client reviews, etc. I'm curious to know his track record so I'm hoping maybe some of you have worked with him or know something about him. If so, I'd love to know more about it. Thank you
These are fair questions to ask counsel. May I suggest you pose your questions directly to him?

What are the best ways to argue my license suspension at my administrative hearing?
I want to be able to argue my case but I'm not sure how. I have evidence that my SFSTs were done incorrectly and also a portion of the police report that makes my stop confusing. I was stopped for speeding by one officer but the report claims that the second officer(arresting officer) was the one who caught me on radar. I find that difficult to understand seeing as how he was down the road, around the curve, and through the woods.
You should consult with a lawyer in Louisiana as to your defense strategy. Depending on the procedures of your hearing,...
Can you be arrested at your home and given a DWI?
I was involved in a minor fender bender with no injuries the car I bumped had minor scratch and she waved that it was ok. I came home and had 3 drinks.

This is not unheard of, unfortunately. The most reliable way to fight it is to hire an attorney, who should file a...
