Should I pursue a lawsuit against a 22 year old female that hit my car while drunk driving and uninsured?
9/26/15 - 22 yr old female hits my car while parked in my drive way. She fled the scene and hit 5 other cars close by. Got the police report on 9/28/2015 and the notes showed she was driving intoxicated and hit 5 cars and 1 of those cars hit another. So in total 7 cars were damaged. I missed two days of work, my husband missed 5 days due to this accident. I was charged late fees for child care as we didn't have money to pay for it because my husband missed work. She was uninsured so her company could not provide a rental car & I spent a total of 3 weeks with no car. Now my 2015 Nissan Altima is repaired, but it no longer has the value as it should have at this point. It's also a lease, so if I get it evaluated by the dealer & something is wrong, it's going to come out of my pocket.
If you believe she has some money or assets you could get, then it may be worth it, but suing poor people is generally...
Can I file a motion to terminate my DUI probation on my own? OR do I need a representative?
I want to file a motion with the court to terminate my probation, my lawyer who did not win the case is asking for more money which I cannot afford, can I file such motion myself?

In 2003 I had my drivers license suspended for 10 years for motor vehicle homicide, while driving drunk and negligently.
I tried to get my drivers license back in 2012 and had a hearing at the Board of Appeals. The BOA upheld the RMV's decision to keep my license suspension in effect. Are there any other avenues for me to take to try to get my drivers license suspension rescinded? I need to drive to support my family. I have been without my drivers license since 2003. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Why isn't your suspension over now? I am missing something because the ten years should have expired two years ago. I...

"Is it possible that the defendant could of consumed alcohol after the car stopped and before you arrived at the defendants broken down car before you arrived"? If not is there another way to ask this. My attorney is not very experienced. Thanks.

Lost my license (DUI-first offense) in Utah. How do I get it reinstated in my current state of residence (MA)?
Hi, I lost my license due to a first time misdemeanor DUI in Utah 10 months ago. At the time, I agreed to a sobriety test and breath-a-lyzer, but asked for a warrant before agreeing to a drug test. As a result, I automatically lost my license for 18 months. In MA, the mandatory punishment for this would be a suspension of 180 days not 18 months. So, is there any way to get a new license in MA now? I really only want a hardship license for my job. If not, at the end of the 18 months, do I have to go to Utah to have my license reinstated before applying for one in MA? The MA RMV seems to imply so, but to Utah would require me to apply for a new license and, therefore, prove residence. Please advise.
Because your license was suspended in Utah as a result of a DUI which occurred in Utah, the 180 day suspension which...
Got 2nd DUI last Sept. in California but have moved to Boston. Didn't get a restricted license. How can I get LI in MA.
I got convicted for my 2nd DUI in Redwood City CA last September (first one 6 years prior in Santa Clara CA), and have moved to Boston MA. I got my DUI classes transferred to online by the court and did not opt for a restricted license while in CA. Can I apply for a license in Boston through Termination of Action in CA? When can I do that -- I was told after a year but when I called the Mandatory Actions Unit, the clerk told me it was a 2-year suspension and that I could not apply for Termination of Action for 2-year?!?! Is this correct? How can I obtain my license in MA now? Please help.
