Should I get a dui lawyer?
I just recieved my first dui this past week in la county. I blew a .20 at the scene and at the station. Is there even a point to hire a lawyer or should I just plead guilty or no contest?
Without a lawyer, how do you know that they're not going to throw the book at you? Without a lawyer, how do you know...
My husband is convicted of DUI
Hi, I am here on behalf of my husband. My husband is convicted of drinking and driving. Last week while he was returning home from an office party, he was caught by the police. In the tests, it was found that there was around 90 mg of alcohol in 100 ml of his blood, which is above the limit. My husband drinks quite often and I always ask him not to drive while he is drunk. Now he has been convicted by the police. And it is a serious issue and a complicated one because all the evidence is against him. I have been told by my friends to hire a DUI defence lawyer to help him out in this case. But I really have no idea regarding all this. Because of the seriousness and complexity of these criminal cases, I have to get a lawyer who knows how these cases are investigated and prosecuted. I have heard about http://www.defencegroup.ca/, a DUI defence lawyer here. Any experiences with them? I have to somehow get him out of this. So what should I do first? I am looking forward to some expert suggestions on this. Please help me. Thank you so much.
He has not been convicted by the police. Only Courts do that. Yes he needs an attorney. You can search here on AVVO or...
How do I get a dui off my DMV record?
My local CHP decided that they were done looking in to my charges after two years. I got a letter in the mail not very long after that said the DA will not be pressing any charges as well.... so my question is why is DMV holding me up if I'm not being charged, I don't get it.
DMV can suspend your license through an administrative hearing process that is independent of the criminal case. The...
Do I have a dui?
I was pulled over by police. I had been drinking. I was already injured from a fight and was trying to get home. The police called ambulance because of my injuries. I was transported to hospital in ambulance. No cops were at hospital. Hospital released me a few hours later. I was issued no citation or was arrested. Hospital did perform alcohol test as well as other test ordered by doctor.
Why would you even ask? Do you think you will be charged? A prosecutor could file on this but a good attorney will...
What is the best advice for a DUI marijuana charge?
My 19 year old son smoked weed and 2 hours later, he drove. After dropping someone off at their house, he did a u-turn and was immediately pulled over for the illegal u-turn. He had a small amount of pot in his car which was detected, and they did a field sobriety test. He said he was not high at the time, was respectful and calm. He showed the police his medical mj card. They took him in and gave him a blood test, and he spent the next 15 hours in a small cell with 12 other guys. Any advice for the court date? Thanks! The charge is 23152 E and the location is southern CA.
I mean the best advice I can give you is what I would do if you were my client I would want to get a sampling of the...
Dui payment
Hello. My dui payments are due every 15th of the month. I lost my debit card and on the 15th I had my payment taken out of my bank account, I accidently put the wrong account number and just found out my account over drafted and the payment was kicked back. I went and paid again as soon as I noticed-three days after the 15th. I am wondering if a warrant will be out for failure to pay? I have both receipts of my payment one being on the 15th. Should I go to the courthouse tomorrow morning to make sure? When I called and checked online the amount I have owed is as if they got both payments. Thank you
Go to the Court right away, or hire an attorney St to go for you, and try to get the payments reinstated before it gets...
What do I do now? Terrorized by a drunk.
A man was on my property near midnight, trying to gain entry through doors and windows, he then went to my brand new truck and began trying to gain entry to it. When he couldn't he got agitated and began scratching at it and banging on it. The police were called and the man was arrested for "drunk in public". the detective assigned to the case told me I cannot get the copy of the report OR the mans name because he didn't get charged with a crime. what do I do now? Do I not have the right to press charges? He terrorized my family for over a half hour. We thought it was a home invasion and we were scared for our lives. The man was cuffed on my property. My brand new truck is scratched up. We didn't see the damage to the truck until it was daylight the next day. these scratches could not be seen at the time at night with dew and the man's vomit on my truck. What are my rights and how do I go forward?
Assuming he was cuffed by the police, you did the right thing. Advise them of the damages and tell the police that if...
