Can anyone recommend an attorney in the San Mateo area who specializes in filing the expungement form for a first time DUI?
I got a first time DUI misdemeanor in 2012 in San Mateo County, CA and have since completed all the fines and conditions. I kept a copy of all my records too. By the way, the DUI had no aggravating circumstances etc. I am looking to get the DUI expunged. Can anyone recommend an attorney in the San Mateo area who specializes in filing the expungement form? I'd like to get an idea of cost of this legal service and the filing fee/s. I also no longer live in San Mateo, CA so while I don't anticipate that there may be need for a court appearance in this regard, I need to factor in this possibility that I may need representation by an attorney if the court required an appearance.

Underage DUI for 0.01 BAC. Im just about 3weeks away from 21, and im a student. i was driving a company truck, and slipped which it caused i hit down a traffic light.

Anything I can do to fight this?with my (2) dui's they are saying it's The 2nd time& I'm on probation until Nov this yr!!
Ilicense suspended due to 2 dui(s) & off prob this nov! I was pulled over in October for exp registration (exp sept) was given a driving on a suspended ticket. (M) thinking it's a traffic ticket & assuming it was i wasn't too worried about it I never recieved anything in the mail,every time I looked my ticket up online on the San Mateo county court traffic website it would say case closed or paid! that wasn't the case...January I end up getting a "warrant" letter in the mail from Burlingame pd.I turned myself in, bailed out and got a court date. At court they had me fill out paperwork, all the judge said was I was approved for "the private defender program and to call next week" which I've been calling everyday since & my "assigned attorney" hasn't contacted me once! I'm frustrated because 1. I did not know my license was suspended 2. Yes the dmv told me I was sent I notice about it in July that I never received guessing since My mailboxes were broken into multiple times (I have letters from landlord) 4. I've done everything (OHS DUI CLASSES, IID FOR ONE YEAR, PAID ALL FINES,ETC)) to get my license back & every time I get a temp one I never get it in the mail from the dmv!
