Is it possible to change attorneys in a DWI case in the 9th hour? Thank you
After 1 year I am now being presented I am unable to get a reduction in the case.
You haven't provided a lot of information and the lack of information makes it difficult to answer your question. What...
Charged w/dui but don't reside in Fl.,here for work but leaving soon.Can I be made to stay on 1st offense dui if given probation
Charged w/dui (1st offense) stopped for "speeding" but wasn't visibly intoxicated,refused tests so I was arrested. 2 questions: does judge consider the degree of intoxification on a dui when deciding punishment & also: I don't reside in FL. & only here for work but leaving within 1-2 months when job is done.Am I a more likely candidate to not receive some type probation,attending classes (AA)or possible jail cuz of the fact I won't be in-state much longer? I realize if judge says I'm going to jail or whatever,that I must do so but is a prosecutor more likely to rather see me gone & fines paid than have me most likely lose my job & be stuck here for 6 mo.- year over misdemeanor dui? (I take responsibility but just curious) I have no prior arrests either & work full time.
Best bet is to talk to an attorney in the County you were arrested. Without taking tests and no visible intoxication, a...
I was stopped for "speeding" & arrested for dui. I'd had 3 beers. If it can't be proven I was speeding can I get it thrown out?
First off,I didn't think I was speeding. It was a undercover car that stopped me so I never knew he was behind me. I have out of state tags & feel he assumed I was on vacay & most likely drinking since The stop occurred close to the beach but I live 1/2 mile from location I was stopped at. I'd had 3 beers all night,wasn't swerving in car or swaying/stumbling once outside the car,took test where u follow the pen w/eyes but refused field tests cuz they are ridiculous so then he arrested me. I was not drunk! Is there any way to get it dismissed on grounds he unjustly pulled me over since he can't prove I was speeding? If they don't have to show proof of speeding,what's to stop them pulling anyone over that they want under pretense of "speeding"? Seems really messed up to me.
The smart thing to do is obtain the services of an experienced DUI attorney to represent you. Don't try to represent...
Out of state dui ticket on Illinois license?
Dui ticket on Illinois license in Florida
What is your question? The answer, no matter what you ask, will probably be, "Hire an attorney to defend you."
I had a DUI on Oct. 2009. 2nd in 10 years.
I completed the DUI class. At that time I required a device attached to car (breathylizer) It's been 3.5 years since I've driven do I still need this device in order to get license and drive?
Unfortunately yes you do. There is no way around this requirement. You are free to call the good folks at DMV...

If a police department fails to have video and blew all 0's on test. Do you feel a private attorney should file for dismissal?
Was driving 9:00AM in the morning. Coughed out with COPD and being a smoker loss sight for a second or so. Police arrest me for DUI. Bumped a rescue vehicle. Cops come and end up with a DUI. Blew all 0's on test. Asked to take a urine test and asked to speak with my lawyer about certain meds I take. They wrote a refusal. Got my license back. They now have no video. I know the officer said to use the field test because I did to good.
You need to talk to a lawyer about your discovery. Did you perform field sobriety exercises? Did the officers "switch...
