Port Chester Law

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.
Husband is being sentenced on Monday for a DUI do judges most of the time grant time served.
My husband is currently in jail for probation violation and DUI running concurrentlY. I am confused because on Monday he is being sentenced for his DUI and they are trying to get him time served.

Whether the sentence runs concurrent or consecutive is up to the Judge. Did the Judge make a promise at the time of...

What state DMVs will a NY DWAI - drug conviction be reported to?
A few months ago I pled guilty to a DWAI drugs in NY. I was a CT resident and licensed in CT @ the time. I just moved to FL. Ironically the same day I arrived here, a letter from the CT DMV was sent to my CT address advising me that my CT driving privileges will be suspended in a couple of wks. If I were to obtain a FL license and no longer hold a CT license, will my FL license eventually be suspended? ALSO, should I have to have an interlock device installed in my car for the CT DMV if it was a drug conviction and no alcohol was involved?

I was approved for DACA IN September 2014. Weeks later I charged with. Dwi.
I was charged with dwi, no license and criminal mischief in 4th degree this was due to police argue I damaged to me kicking the door from the inside, no damaged was done but the police just wanted to go harsh on me. My plea deal was conviction on Dwai and driving with the music too loud. Both are consider to be traffic infractions, not misdeaminors, can I renew my daca, or will it be denied. Guidelines for daca don't say anything about DWAI, that I know regular dwi is consider misdeaminor.
Since you plead only to infractions it should have no consequence to your immigration status. However, when you apply...
