Wisconsin DUI and Drivers License Compact States.
I was a sales rep. with a company car and have lost my job due to the dui, as a dui is grounds for termination. I am devasted as I am no longer able to get a sales position in the field that I have been in for the majority of my adult life. I am seriously looking at relocating to a non-compact state as I can no longer work here in Wisconsin. To be clear I have not been convicted of the dui yet, but on my driving record it has the PAC etc violation. Is it best to move and apply for a DL in a non-compact state before the conviction? Or could I still move with the conviction on my DL ? I need to have a clean DL report for employment. In either preceding scenerio will the dui transfer if I apply for a DL in a non-compact state? Plz no answers regarding hiring a WI attorney for my dui.
It doesn't matter where you go, odds are good that this conviction will eventually catch up with you. Even non-compact...

CDL eligibility after multiple OWI,DUI
I have never had a cdl , I have three DUI's one in 2012 and two in 2014. It was a bad time in my life and I have then been much more responsible. On the rare occasion if I drink I dont drive period. I dont question how many drinks or how long, its anything and no driving. I am running a successfull construction business but need a cdl to transport my equipment legally. Wisconsin says 3 major violations result in a lifetime cdl ban, even if you were in a passanger car. I didnt have a cdl, does this disqualify me from ever getting one? Expungment is out of the question , wisconsin does not do that. The law is unclear if the driver has never had a cdl to begin with.
The federal regulations are not unclear. § 383.51 ("Disqualification of drivers. (a) General. (1) A person required...

While under arrest and taken to a hospital can a doctor force medical care on you?
I was arrested for DWI and taken to a hospital, after a brief loss of consciousness, secondary to low blood sugar levels. I was awake, alert and responsive when I arrived at the ER. I refused medical care yet the doctor ordered me held down for a blood draw and catheterization. The arresting officer told the doctor it was a first offense and he had no need for a blood test and there was no warrant issued for a blood draw. Being a Registered Nurse I told the doctor I knew what had happened, low blood sugar, and that I did not want any medical care. My struggle to stop the unwanted medical care resulted in my being charged with a misdemeanor. Was it legal for the doctor to do this?
I practice criminal law and not civil law, so I will analyze your fact situation from my viewpoint. If a judge did not...
If I got a DUI in Illinois but am a Wisconsin resident, can I still drive in Wisconsin?
I'm supposed to have my license suspended for 6 months for a DUI I got in IL as of 6/16/16 which was 3 days ago. I contacted the WI DMV and they said my license is still valid until IL reports the conviction to WI. But I thought Wisconsin wasn't part of the driving compact? So can I just pay to get my driving privileges in IL reinstated after the 6 months and just not drive in IL until then? Will I need to follow any process in WI to keep driving? I'm in the process of applying for the BAIID that IL requires but I don't want to start payments until I know I absolutely need it.
I'm going to change your practice area from Government to DUI/DWI in the hopes you get more responses from DWI...
