How can I go about suing the PA DMV?
They have wrongfully suspended my license 7 months ago and I have to keep renting a car because I cannot get a Florida License, to take out a loan to get a car, I keep having to fax in documents (I live in Florida now), and they keep saying they never get them, but it costs money from Florida to fax them every time. I told them the fax number and they confirm that is their fax number. But they never get them. I am spending $1,000 per month renting due to I can't buy a car. Do I have rights to sue? I Don't know what lawyer could handle this. You would think I had a DUI. It was a traffic ticket that was PAID but they suspended my license anyway.
Your best bet is to repost this question in the PA criminal or traffic section. A PA lawyer will be in the best...
Plea bargaining a DUI ?
Someone I know has 4 DUIs in a 2 year period. I have noticed in the court docket that there has been a change of plea. Can you plea bargain DUI conviction for a lesser sentence, and just what is the normal penalty for fourth DUI in KY? Isn't there some mandatory jail time there?
You need to post this question in a Kentucky forum. We are Florida attorneys, and it is improper for us to comment on...

Is a first Florida DUI offense considered a "serious misdemeanor"?
I was charged and convicted for first time DUI in Tampa, FL in 2013. No crash, damage or injuries my BAC was 0.13/0.14. Got the minimum sentence (revocation, fines, CS, DUI school) with no jail time (except for the 8 hrs after arrest) and I completed everything within 6 months. I am about to graduate with a PhD and I am applying for faculty tenure track position in a University in California. The online application form asks the following question "have you ever been convicted of a felony or serious misdemeanor?" As you can see my struggle is with the design "serious." Even after reading other online posts i am still not sure how to answer without being dishonest. Thanks in advance.
This is not a criminal defense question; It is an administrative / regulatory / licensing question, and no lawyer can...
Can I drive in FL with a NY conditional license?
I was recently arrested for Aggravated DWI in the state of NY, the state I'm licensed in, and I am planning on plea bargaining down to DWI. I have moved to FL since the arrest. I am planning on applying for a conditional license in NY and I'm wondering if I would be allowed to drive within the state of FL using such a license, assuming I'm following the restrictions set forth by the NYS DMV.
A resident of Florida must have a FL driver's license. I assume from your story you are now a resident so I would...
Miami-Dade County BOT for DUI - interlock and comm svc
I am currently on the tail end of finishing the Back on Track program due to a DUI that occurred this January. I currently have the Smart Start device installed on my car, 6 month period. I had an instance a few weeks back where my vehicle locked out due to not Blowing a retest after the car was parked and I forgot to blow, thus creating a lockout. Smart Start was vague on how to report this - they said to call FL DHSMV, but I am on a pre trial diversion agreement program (BOT) ?? I would like to know who to report to, or how to explain it to Court Options. Also, was wondering if I am able to pay for the 60 community service hours required to complete the program. It's hard to balance work and school and find the time to get the hours in. Thank you for your time and assistance.
These are questions that should be able to be answer by your probation officer (diversion supervisor). They should be...
