Rockmart Law

I approached a road block, odor was smelled but nothing was found. Field sobriety has no physical evidence of impairment. I honestly am innocent and was not impaired while driving! I frequently smoke marijuana and am curious if that possibly has any factor in my blood test results or in the actual impairment level. I basically just want to know if I have a good chance to be found not guilty or not?
Absolutely! That's a very low amount. Bases on the facts you gave you certainly have a chance at being found not...
I was convicted of a D.U.I in 2008 in Cobb County Georgia, no accident involved or anything like that but I am currently searching for employment, and I am honest about this on all my applications and I'm pretty sure it is affecting my ability to obtain employment. I met all the requirements made by the court and have not been in any trouble since. Is there anyway to get this off my record or keep it from showing up on background checks. I don't think it is fair that one mistake is making it impossible for me to find employment.
Sorry, but you cannot get a conviction removed from your criminal history.
I had one drank, went to the store, I came back home the police was there for something else but, arrested , me for a dui after getting out of my car. they were standing on the porch I walk to my door and the police said he smell alcohol and arrested me.

I received a DUI in georgia but I live in DC. I plead nolo contendere, which is essentially a guilty plea. However, in my paperwork from my lawyer it stated "I hereby authorize my attorney to enter a plea of nolo contendere/guilty on my behalf and in my absence to all charges related to the above styled matter and sign any and all necessary document regarding same to an ordinance which will not report on my criminal history." what does this mean? I also paid online for a background check on myself and nothing came up. Please advise.
Sounds like your lawyer did a "plea in absentia" which means he/she enters a guilty plea on your behalf so that you don'...
I am a 60 year old woman who needs to have my license reinstated but can not afford the expense. I live with my daughter who is a single parent of 2 children. She works everyday and has a lot of running around her own self with her children and errands she has to do. After my 2nd DUI 08/18/2011 I completed the Risk Reduction Class... Did the clinical treatment class... Did my court ordered time for community service...and do not have any other traffic violations. I have waited over 4 years to try and reinstate my license just to find out I have to do all of this again. How can I get these expenses wavered?
It may not be possible. Otherwise, as I'm sure you'll understand, there would be no cost to DUI and folks would...
I've been a U.S. Permanent Resident since 1992. I'm married to a U.S. Citizen and we have 2 girls, 1 1/2, and 4 1/2. I have always worked and paid my taxes. I have 3 DUI. 2001, 2009, 2015. I'm waiting to go to court for last one and already have a criminal lawer. What am I facing as far as my green card goes? It expires in 2023. If I'm found guilty for this third dui will I be put in deportation process? Can I still travel outside the country without getting detained on the way back? I went to see a immigration lawer in Jonesboro and he told me I have nothing to worry about as far as renewing my green card but I'm still a little paranoid, scared. Is he right? Please help, I'm losing a lot of sleep over this. I'm a good parent and husband just made bad decisions in my life.
DUIs are not considered crimes of moral turpitude so your green card will not be affected. Concentrate on solving your...
