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...
Conditional license from DMV?
I was recently convicted of DWAI in New York. I also attended a hearing at the DMV because I refused to take the breathalyzer when I was arrested. After the hearing, the DMV took my license away for a year based on my refusal. Can I get a conditional license? The woman judge hearing the case was really mean.
You can apply for the conditional license in light of the plea.
I am a taxi driver in Westchester. I unfortunately got a DWI last week. It was a refusal. Will I be able to get a conditional?

I have an outstanding Bench Warrant from 1997 for DUI and unsafe backing how can do I resolve this?

there is no way to resolve it without you personally appearing
First offense, upm and dui. Please help.
Got pulled over by state troopers, they saw weed in my back seat (small amount) and they searched my car (no consent to that). Asked me to get out of the car and I ended up performing a sobriety test (without consent as well or even being asked). They told me I failed even though I was sober! And they arrested me, took me to the hospital to get blood taken( I agreed cause I was sober) and then took me to the station to get processed. What do I do? This is my first offense.
I suggest that you hire a good criminal defense lawyer.
I have a DWI form 17 years ago with an Unsafe Backing Ticket I failed to appear and have a Warrant for my Arrest.

Yes, possible jail time. You've been a fugitive for 17 years... the court doesn't appreciate that... however, there...
