Do I need to hire a lawyer for a DUI? Or is it ok to go with a public defender?
I got a DWI and blew a .14 last week at a State Police check point in Port Chester, NY. Although I've done a lot of research I cannot seem to justify the $3-5K for a lawyer when my case seems pretty cut and dry. I've been told I can most likely plea down to a DWAI and take the necessary classes. Can a private lawyer really do a great deal more than a public defender? Thanks!!
Simply put, no case is the same as another. There are too many variables from the individual facts of the case to the...

Does DMV suspension override Criminal suspension if criminal case is plead out before DMV.
I was arrested for an alleged DWI in NY. I refused the brethalyzer and now face a DMV hearing plus court hearing. I know the arresting officer will not show up at the first DMV hearing, so it will be postponed. If I choose to plead guilty to DWI in criminal court where I would hopefully receive a conditional license, will I still eventually have to go to the DMV hearing or is that dismissed? If I receive a conditional license from criminal court can the absolute suspension from the DMV overrule the criminal court conditional license? My main concern here is being able to drive to work as I live 80 miles away with transit options being a 6 hour round trip.
No, the refusal hearing is NOT dismissed. If you take a plea and are sentenced before the refusal hearing date, a...

coming up on almost a year of dwi arrest in nyc.i have also been without a license from my refusal to blow since last May Finally trial is scheduled for this week. My attorney always said we have nothing to lose by going to trial. So i waited for the COR and the people to be ready..At the hearing a 911 tape was provided that my lawyer new nothing about. but apparently could have gotten way before the hearing. My lawyer just informed me we have a tough Judge and worse case scenario if proven guilty is I could wind up with 3 years probation. i have a clean record and no prior convictions, The video shows the officer stating i have watery eyes and odor of alcohol. When asked if i understood charges i didnt respond
You need to discuss your plea with your lawyer. However, it is likely you will wind up on probation even if you plead.
