Regarding IOP after DUI case is finished?
Basically, I had left court with a DUI charge. I needed to go to 2 day course, it was 6/8 hours each., After completing that I was told I was required to do a screening and if I had not done well, I would have been placed in an IOP program. So let me start off, I was charged in NJ and currently live there. I had went to the first class, but missed the other one because I walked in literally 5 minutes late, even though I reached there 30 minutes prior. After completing that, I was asked during the class to take the screening. They said due to the fact I crashed my crass during the incident, I was required to take IOP. When I went for a further analysis, because of my past, they told me I was required to attend 2 days a week for 14 weeks. I completed like 5 sessions until they dropped me. I was missing group sessions because of court/work. I now got a full time job working and making a change in my life. The whole point of the treatment was to better my self, and I am, which makes me think they all just doing this for the money at the end of the day. Anyway I was wondering if there is anything I can drive, avoid the treatment, swap for probation, or anything else
It sounds like you need to talk to your attorney.
Obtaining license in another state after DUI in NJ.
I have obtained a DUI in New Jersey and wanted to know if this would affect me from obtaining a license if I were to move to another state in the future? I know I would have to complete all the conditions and I am obtaining my license soon. Also if I were to move to another state where a DUI is considered a criminal offense would the offense here be transferred there as criminal? Only reason I am asking is because a DUI in NJ is a traffic violation and it would be difficult for me if it were to be criminal in another state though I've met all conditions and fines.

Can I sue a restaurant (dram shop laws) for auto property damage caused to me by a very drunk driver?
I was t-boned by a drunk driver who ran a red light and hit me. I do not have any major injuries, but can I still sue the restaurant for serving alcohol/letting him drive in that condition? My car is totaled.

Should I bother hiring a lawer?
I am being charged with a DUI &and reckless driving. Apprently I failed the horizontal nystagmus test so I was arrested and taken to the police station. At the station I provided breath samples and only had .01 but still being charged with a DUI and reckless driving. I was pulled over for having a broken taillight. I believe the court will have a hard time proving that I was too intoxicated to drive. My question is, is it worth hiring a lawyer?
Much more information is needed. However let's see, the State will have a seasoned attorney representing them at trial...
Can I travel to Mexico, Cancun, if I was convicted of a DWI in NJ?
I am planning to go on vacation to Cancun, Mexico, and was wondering if I would be allowed/face issues entering Mexico with a recent DWI conviction on record (past 6 months).
