I need a modification to reduce a felony to a misdemeanor. Can I get a form to do this myself to save an attorney fee?
I was convicted of 2 DUI's within a 5 year period, which is a felony in my state. The judge said after my 18 month probation and community service was complete and all fees paid, I could petition the court to reduce the felony to a misdemeanor. I have completed the terms of the judgment, but do not have $250.00 to pay an attorney to write a modification. The attorney that represented me for the conviction 18 months ago, said he would do this for $100.00. Now he says he doesn't recall saying that and wants $250.00. I am working full time and trying to get a lot of old debt paid. I just can't afford this right now but desperately want the felony off my record. I have been sober for almost 2 years now!!! Thank you.
It is not recommended, but you can certainly try. If the reduction was included in the plea agreement and you have...

I was involved in a single car accident with no damage to vehicle or property. I was intoxicated and had my four year old son in the car.

What can happen if I don't sign the plea?
I have court tomorrow morning to sign a plea bargain for repetitive DUI charges. I currently have a lawyer but am considering using different representation. If I go to court tomorrow, terminate my current lawyer and refuse to sign the offered plea agreement, can they send me to jail right then and there or will they give a trial date?
The only person qualified to answer this is your attorney. Ask he or she. This is a matter best considered under the...
What’s the worst case scenario for a driving while intoxicated accident with a minor in the car
I had a single car accident with a child in the car. I was taken to the hospital and released without arrest. The doctor only said my blood alcohol was very high. A social worker talked to my husband and said they would be in touch. I have a previous DUI in another state. I know I need serious help and plan on rehab, but what consequences could I face both criminally and with CPS. Why haven’t I heard from anyone. How do I find a lawyer to take care of both aspects?
The "worst case scenario" for a second DUI involving an accident with a minor child in the car is that you can go to...

I am hoping that Indiana will not suspend my license after Tennessee suspends my license for my DUI I currently have a Indiana driver's license now.. I do not know how that works.. will Indiana suspend my license also?
If you license is valid in the state you're driving in, you're legal to drive in that state.
What should have I done when a school bus with flashing yellow lights passed me?
On my way to work I stopped when I saw a school bus approaching from the opposite direction with yellow lights flashing. The bus continued to proceed stopping with it's front bumper roughly equal to my rear bumper. In retrospect I realize that any time a bus is involved the safest thing to do is stop. At the time I felt somewhat confused and worried that I was obstructing the driver's view. I honestly thought the safest thing to do was to proceed past the bus. A second vehicle followed behind me. As far as I recall the stop arm had not came out yet. The driver honked, but I'm not sure if it was at me or the truck behind me. I am concerned both with the possible legal ramifications for me. And what the appropriate thing do would be in the future. I have been unable to find any reliable information for this specific situation.
