My driving privilege in NY were Denied by NY DMV. I can send in letter of Appeal, what do I say?Do lawyers usually write letter?
5 years ago, I got a dui, well, I refused the breathalyzer. I'm a CT resident w a CT drivers license. I finally finished paying all my fees this past year to the NY DMV, they said all would be well. I got a letter saying my driving privilege was denied & I have 60 days to appeal. I contacted my original attorney but he's been very hard to talk to, barely responds to my calls or texts. This is the last week so it's up to me.Can I write this letter by myself? What should I say? I'm worried bc I'm enrolled back in college and am to start an internship , both in NY in Sept, so the NY driving privilege is a necessity to me. I waited last minute here and my attorney keeps telling me he will call. Legal Aid society wouldn't even give me advice bc I had an attorney/trial was in 2013. About to write this appeal letter, what should I say? I unfortunately have a bad record- 1 DUAI when I was 17 years old, another when I was 21 or 22 both in CT, and then this chem test refusal in NY back in 2012 5 years ago. 1st one was to be expunged... but they are saying if 3 or 4 alcohol incidents,then they deny privilege.I am sober 5 years,volunteer,going to school to be a substance abuse counselor,Help!

Can i renew my tlc license in westchester County, NY after pleading guilty to dwai?
I pled guilty to a Dwai. My tlc permit was suspended until completing the required 7 week course and any other requirements. Upon completion they handed me back my permit saying i was good to go. I just found out my renewal was denied and was not given an explanation. Is there a way to appeal this?
If I remember correctly, you can't have a TLC license with any type of DWI conviction, even the DWAI violation.
Can I sue NYS department of social services cps for traumatizing my children by telling them that they are being removed?

Also I have been told that I have to take repetitive drug test I believe that my urine is being compromised they gave my husband a drug test but a woman drug tested him and a man drug tested me. I feel that my privacy and my right and my home are being tarnished and I feel like I am a victim I am being discriminated because I am Hispanic and my husband is white and these workers are black I've had previous workers in the past that have gone by the book with their job but with this case it's like they're not giving up the trying to frame me and my husband my husband works a really good job at Metro-North in New York so he gets randomly drug tested and I smoke pot because it helps me I'm trying to get a medical marijuana license but because post Trumatic stress is not under the requirements I have to wait so they're penalizing me because I smoke pot on top of that they're coming to my home to three times a week when it's only once or twice a month I think that they're just doing it too much and are trying to tear my family apart I had a shitty lawyer

Is there a chance to have an ignition-interlock device/IID removed after 6 months instead of waiting the full 12 months, in NY?
I was sentenced as a first time offender (of ANY type of moving violation or crime) to a DWI with conditional discharge in NY. I refused to "blow" so I received an automatic 12 month revocation from the DMV. In criminal court I received a direction to install and maintain an IID in my vehicle for 12 months. I have also received a conditional license (thankfully). I have had my IID for 6 months with zero (0) issues related to failed breath tests. I would like to know if there is a realistic chance to have my IID "sentence" shortened by hiring an attorney to petition the court? If there is a chance at winning, how much is a reasonable fee to pay for this? In other words - would a petition like this be in the $1k range, the $2.5k range or above $5k? I am in a small municipality.
Yes. I just got the interlock removed for a client in Nassau County after 6 months.
