First time DUI with accident and property damage. What are my options?
I got into an accident on Sunday, making a left turn onto a freeway ramp and hitting a freeway sign and fence. While the tow truck was removing my car, a CHP pulled up and gave me a field sobriety test after asking if I had been drinking that night. (I told them I had, but not for over 2 hours). I blew over the .08 limit and was arrested. I blew under the limit at the courthouse when booked, and thus my license wasn't relinquished. After a night in jail and dealing with the accident itself, I am looking into legal representation. What are the possible enhancements with this charge (because of the accident) and what should I be looking for in order to not have this momentary lapse in judgement affect my long term job and employment opportunities? (I am a working actor in Los Angel
Please contact an experienced DUI attorney immediately. This is a serious charge and you need aggressive...

Will I get an extension for my DUI requirements?
I was sentenced in March of 2016 at the LA Metro Court of a first time misdemeanor DUI with aggravating factors and converted fines to community service (can't do labor due to disability). I was given one year to complete my requirements. I still have to complete: 200 hours (out of 400 hours) of community service, 3 months of my 9 month alcohol program, MADD & HAMM classes. I had difficulty with paying for my alcohol program / moving / divorcing, I started all my requirements late due to moving last summer. The lawyer saw in November my progress, and was okay with everything, I'm at the same progress as then because of finally getting a job. The MADD & HAMM classes are not offered where I live (Santa Maria, CA) and it's difficult for me to get to Los Angeles where I was convicted. Will the judge give me an extension? How long can I ask for? Should I contact the court BEFORE my court date?
YES, the judge will probably give you an extension but you should ask for it ahead of time. Be proactive. You already...
Completing dui terms and conditions on time?
I got a dui about 9 months ago. The court gave me 1 year to complete all the terms and conditions of my probation. I have completed the dui class, the HAMM and MADD courses and paid about half of the fine. If I am unable to pay the complete amount of the fine by the last day it is due what should I do? Appear in court and request an extension? Do i have to see the judge? Thanks
Sounds like a trip to court is in order. Either you or your lawyer will need to go. Better your lawyer.
