Do I need to get a lawyer, or will it be cheaper to take the DUI?
I recently got a DUI, I am under 21 years old and had a beer and a sip of a mixed drink at a club. Two hours later I drove a friend home who had too much to drink, and got pulled over for failure to dim brights. I didn't refuse anything and cooperated with it all and got taken to the station for a breathalyzer, I blew a .116 which was a lot higher than I thought. I had taken NyQuil that night from a cold and didn't know it had that effect. But I didn't know it had an effect till the next day so I couldn't tell the officer about it.

DUI, lost in the system ... help
I got a DUI back in August of 2014 in the Denver area. I have been on probation since Jan 2015. Back in september I moved from Fort Collins to the Denver area and was suppose to have them transfer my probation but I guess I got lost in the system. I haven't had any contact with them since September. I have received a letter twice from the courts only regarding my court fines being late. I have aided all my court fines but I have not finished my community service or alcohol classes. My probation period ends mid July. I was wondering what I should do since I've pretty much let this ride out all these months and still no contact from courts or anything

How can I find out if I can get my interlock device out early?
I have had an interlock for a drug related DUI for a year now. I reinstated early last year but have to have it until 2018. I'm unsure if the courts imposed the sentence or if it was up to the DMV. My car insurance keeps going up but with the interlock device my choices of who will insure me are limited. I have had one fail but am otherwise in compliance with my contract.
