It depends on the specifics of your sentences / situation.
I just got charged for a DUI. My first offense. What are my chances of getting it knocked down to a Reckless Driving Charge?
I was stopped at a roadblock. I had drank two or three beers several hours earlier in the night. The officer asked me to submit to multiple field sobriety tests. I agreed. I feel I performed the tests with little to no struggles or stumbles. However, when given the eye movement test, the officer seemed unsure whether I was under the influence. I refused the Breathalyzer test. After confirming with another officer, they decided to charge me with a DUI. It's my first ticket, other than a couple of seat belt violations. I kept a respectful and courteous demeanor through the entire night. What are my chances of getting the charge reduced, and what kind of punishment and penalties should I expect?
Your chances of a reduction are entirely dependant upon a review of the State's entire case file against you. If this...
What type of lawyer would be best to fight my case?
I was pulled over for allegedly swerving, I did swerve once due to a passing car's bright lights, but by no means was I swerving. I honestly only had 2 beers, over a span of 4 hours.. The officer gave me a breathalyzer test at the seen, did not tell me the result, then did the other sobriety test even after I told him I have a torn ACL in my left knee and that we were on a slant. He then just put the hand cuffs on me and said I was being arrested for DUI... He proceeded to take me to the jail where another officer gave me 2 more breath test to which I blew a .00000, a blood test and a number of other test over the next 3 hours.. I was never told why I was arrested but I was charged with DUI Drugs, held for 8 hours and then was allowed to get bailed out. The tickets I was handed said nothi

What's my risk for and how to avoid a DUI?
I suffer from debilitating back pain that requires percocet at a minimum as well as soma or baclofen to literally sometimes not just be in tears from pain. On my last visit to my pain dr they had me sign something that stated driving and taking percocet was an automatic dui. First off, I don't and haven't drank in over 20 years because I take pain pills, but I also don't take a pain pill and drive but obviously they stay in my system. So there are days that I will be in incredible pain but know I have to drive and I just grit my teeth and sometimes literally cry until I can get home. What I want to know is with taking pain pills how can I avoid any question of a dui short of not driving which is not an option in my situation at the moment. I've not had any tickets in 17 years and my mother was permanently disabled from a car accident caused by someone who was high on marijuana and I don't want anyone else to have to suffer the childhood I did. So I'm not looking for loopholes but what I have to do to not put me at risk legally.
You avoid a DUI by not driving when you have meds in you which could affect you. The fact that your medication is...
