How do I get my license back from an out of state DUI while in another state working?
I was arrested Feb 4 in Wood County, WV for a first offense Aggr. DUI. I am licensed in Oklahoma but currently living in Ohio for work. I hired an attorney that told me he would help with both criminal and administrative hearing. He did not follow through. I was dropped to a Non Aggr. DUI in WV but the WVDMV did not send my information to my new address in OH as requested and after my suspension notice never arrived my lawyer suggested I had slipped through the cracks and not to worry. In August I was pulled over for failure to signal and found my license was suspended in OK - Is there an easy way to get all of my penalties under one state WV requires interlock - OK requires 180 day suspension - both require a DUI class and fines and in neither state I had a Admin hearing. Please Help!?

How long can arizona dmv keep your license suspended?
I got a DUI in 2009 in Arizona. I am now in Ohio , I checked on getting my license back in 2010-2011 and was told I had to get a breathalyzer. I had a breathalyzer for a bread time until I was no longer able to afford it after having my stage 3 cancer removed. I now want to drive again and don't know where to start.
You should hire a lawyer to look into this, and what needs to be done to lift the suspension. No one on this website...

2nd offense OVI arrest (1st conviction 2007). Can charge be reduced if no breathalyzer result?
I was pulled over for left of center. State trooper asked if I had been drinking & I said I had a drink with dinner 4 hours earlier. He said he smelled alcohol & my eyes were bloodshot. He took me to station for FST & breathalyzer. Breathalyzer resulted in 3 invalid samples. I completed FTS walk and turn tests-didn't have to stop & start and didn't stumble. Completed leg raise test without falling or problems balancing. These tests were done one hour after the initial stop. I was cooperative, though crying alot. Since there is no breath test, is there a chance I could get this reduced to a lesser charge even though its my 2nd offense?
An experienced DUI defense attorney will review the police report, the record keeping of the machine, available videos...
