Blood sample was taken in Pa for suspected dui. almost two weeks later it is still at the police station in a cardboard box.. I am concerned that it will not be valid. Consulted an attorney he advised me that he can do nothing until I am charged. I am concerned that this sample will not be accurate. I WAS not under the influence of anything other than being tired. My eyes were red and that gave the office cause to give me a breathalyzer, which I refused and ask for a blood sample. I am concerned that my attorney is not being proactive on the blood sample. Should I find another attorney. I had a DUI in college 3 years ago. Stupid, I know but I did learn a very important lesson .
I am not aware of any rule or requirement that it must be stored in any particular way. If charges are file and the...
4years ago I was hit by a drunk driver head on and he had a rental car that was in his fathers name and insurance.
I have recently been informed my law firm cannot sue the rental car company of the car that hit me head on in a drunk driving case. The man driving committed suicide two years ago. The case has been pending for 4 years. My lawyer is getting very pushy and nasty towards me as I am losing faith and questioning why they did not know 4 years ago that they would not be able to sue the rental company. I am very confused and have many questions but I am strongly advised to sign the check portion of of the estate and then will have to sue my insurance company. I have so many questions for my lawyer but her main concern is that I sign this check that I am so reluctant to sign. I have a neck injury that I am still treating and a pinched nerve in my right arm.
Unfortunately, other attorneys are not able to give you advice because you are represented already. Also, with every...

I am a pa resident who was recently in Florida on vacation. During that time I was arrested and charged with a dui. My bac was over .15. As a part of my plea agreement I have pleaded guilty to criminal dui over .15 and will have my drivers liscence suspended for 6 months among other consequences My attorney in Florida says Pennsylvania will suspend my liscence. However I have discussed this with a few police officers in Pennsylvania who believe penn dot will not suspend since this is my first dui. But it will be on my pa record. I'm confused and concerned Will my pa liscence be suspended? Should I retain a pa attorney to protect my interests here in pittsburgh? Input is appreciated
There is likely nothing that a local attorney can do. Either PA is going to see and respect Florida decision or they...

My son got a DUI (spice, not alcohol) and also was driving his car with expired inspection sticker and expired drivers license.
He did have a small amount of "spice" and a pipe on him. Was taken for a blood test. What will happen now? 1st offense. Thank you!
Typically, a first time offender will get probation, but there are many consequences beyond the criminal case. You need...
If someone gets arrested for a Highest Tier DUI (combination of legally prescribed drugs and alochol) in one PA county and then within 48 hrs gets arrested for a Highest Tier DUI (alcohol only) in a different PA county would they still be eligible for ARD in either or both countries if they have no prior record? Would one county D.A. and Court be able to transfer jurisdiction over on the DUI to another county (if they county were willing to accept it) to be combined for an ARD, or is such transfer outside the couty of the offest to another county even legally possible? If not, would one be considered a 1st offense and the second be considered for sentencing purposes.
I'm not sure what Scranton Pennsylvania courts do, but in New York, they would certainly be considered two separate and...
