Will I be able to get a restricted licence in WV for a second offence DUI received in PA?
I was on pain management for a close to a year and decided to get off of them. I bought a dose of buprenorphine off the the street to wean off it. I was in the final stages of this when I got pulled over and I was taken in for a blood draw and charged with a third tier DUI because I had a measurable amount in my blood. I hired an incompetent lawyer who thought I would get ARD and really did nothing to negotiate my plea agreement or show that the officer didn't have a good reason to preform this blood draw. This is my second DUI, previous one was in 2008. I was offered house arrest and a 18 month driver's licence suspension. My question is if I have a west virginia licence can I apply for a restricted licence to drive to work and/or school or what not?
Best to hire a competent lawyer our guesses won't help and will be worse than the incompetent lawyers advice. Perhaps...
Can I sue the city and get him fired if found not guilty.
I was sitting on a church bench waiting for my girlfriend to get clothes from her moms. I text her & ask her to run me sum cookies out. She did. An off duty police officer approached me & said he was told I just made a drug deal with a woman. I explained to him that it was a bag of cookies. He wanted to search me but said he couldn't because he was off duty. He made me stay there while he called another officer from another city to come search me. I was searched & nothing was found but 2 needles. He wrote me a for drug paraphanalia (off duty) out of another cities ticket book. I went on my way & watched him walk to his house w/ my needles. I'm riding my bike 4 days later, he stops me, says he tested my needles & they were positive for methadone & amphetamines. I do neither, I do suboxone. He tore the ticket up & took me to jail for possession. (6 days I was there). What can I do? He was off duty & couldn't search me, but can make me stay & write s ticket. He took my needles home w/ him (overnight) he could have put anything in them. I go to the needle exchange & had 2 unused needles. He says they tested positive. He failed a drug test for the police dept for marajuana. what can I d

Are there any West Virginia Lawyers out there with enough Guts to take on the crooked State Government ?
I was raised in a Country where when you went to court and the charges were dismissed the case was over. HOW can W.V. DMV hold there own Kangaroo court in their office not a courtroom with no legal Judge present after the legal court dismissed the charges and three years later pull your license? I thought this was America.
West Virginia has a two tier system on a DUI case in that the criminal court and the administrative court are two...

Is there any lawsuits out there against the drug Mirapex?
I've got Multiple Sclerosis and have been on Mirapex for years, for Severe R.L.S. I developed a gambling addiction and have never had an addiction in my entire life. I have lost my good credit, cars, my pride and I'm depressed all the due to all of this. Is there a lawsuit for this drug that helps my RLS but destroys lives?
My advice would be to consult with a civil attorney who has sued a pharmaceutical company before.
