I hit a semi that a cop had pulled over and was turning it around on a two lane highway at night with no signaling of any type or anything indicating the road was blocked up ahead. I didn't see that semi was stretched across the whole road till last minute. I tried to avoid hitting it but failed doing so after about 15 min of standing around the cop came up and was talking to me he asked if I had bee n drinking. I said no but he asked me to take field sobriety I said I would not submit to anything. He them arrested me took me back to the jail then 5 hrs later took me to hosp with a warrant for a blood draw. I advised them there was no injuries to anyone that this was illegal unless there was a type a injury. End result they still never got my blood because of a illegitimate threat I made..

I received my 2nd underage drinking ticket & my 1st intox in public ticket. Is there anything I can do to not lose my license?
I got these tickets in Davenport but live in Illinois, and since the laws are different from state to state i was told to see what the consequences were for first and second offender of these laws were. I'm wondering what the consequences are and is there anyway I can keep my license?

How to find DUI records
My 6 year old son lives mostly with my ex-wife. She has been on several evening dates recently, and I have heard through the grapevine that she is driving under the influence. Obviously, I fear for my son. How can I find out if she has any DUI's?
Criminal History Records information is only available from the Illinois State Police. Information is located at their...
First DWI offense, in need of help!
I have only been in trouble with the law one time which was for a misdemeanor theft conviction about 10 years ago. I am now facing my first DUI/DWI charge and my head is spinning...Do attorneys accept payments? Free consultations? I obviously would like the best representation for my case and not randomly pick a name out of a book.
You are in the right place. Use the Find a Lawyer feature here on Avvo to profile an attorney to hire for DUI defense.
Are there any attorneys in Cook County (Illinois) willing to accept payments for a first time DUI/DWI charge?
I am scheduled to appear for court in Rolling Meadows courthouse next week for a DUI/DWI charge I am facing. Due to my finances, I was considering going with a public defender however, I would obviously prefer to have an attorney representing my case. I did submit to the breathalyser which came back under the legal limit I am sure and I refused the blood/urine sample. I am fine with having my license suspended for a year (the arresting officer told me this would be the case if I did not submit a sample) - I just do not want this on my record and want to be able to keep my freedom. I know there is a price to pay, choices have consequences, etc. If anyone would be willing to speak with me and can accept payments, I would love to hear from you! Thank you in advance.
Yes, there are many attorneys who will accept a payment plan for your case. But you're unlikely to find one on a free...
I need help concerning my first DUI case.
On Monday, I had two drinks coming from a friend's house. I drove home and parked. I turned my car off as well. I fell asleep in my car in the driver's seat. I woke up to flashing lights. The officer told me to turn my car on, in which I did. I told him I had two drinks and that I was parked at my home. He took field sobriety test and took me to the station. I took a breathalyzer test and blew .99. They kept me for six hours and read me my Miranda rights at the station. I do not have a criminal record, I do not have any traffic violations. My driver's license is in good standing and I have insurance on my car. The report states that I was slumped over the wheel and I was not and it also states my car is silver and it is clearly black. Do I have a case? Will these charges be dismissed?
Why is it always two drinks? Anyway, you need to hire an attorney. That's the only thing you can do right now to help...
