Should I move my case to motions hearing or Should I take the plea of DWI and get Careless removed?
I have been charged with a third degree DWI, careless driving. My lawyer who cost me over $5k went to court twice with me for pre-trial where she worked up a deal with a prosecutor for me to plead to the DWI and that the careless driving will be taken off.

I also somewhat believe my attorney who charged me all that money should try and work a better deal since she did not have to do much apart from talking to the prosecutors. Please advice?
