I need an aggressive and expedient driver license restoration attorney in Tallahassee. Who would you recommend?
Florida DMV has told me that it will NOT accept restitution fees from me until I am in the process of obtaining a hardship license. I live in Alabama now. I am going through a driving-related administrative process through the Alabama Department of Public Safety . They are insisting that I must pay these fees, even though Florida DMV has clearly told me that they will reject such a payment. I need to obtain confirmation of this (written ) asap from Florida DMV.
We're not allowed to make specific recommendations here. Best suggestion is to use the Avvo "find a lawyer" tool....
Is there a way that I can get the amount of time that I have to have the Interlock Device reduced if not suspended completely?

Can these charges be dropped if I had a prescription. What are my chances of the DUI being dropped if I wasn't drinking.
I was at a gas station getting gas & the car hachback was open. The key weren't in the ignition. An officer got his dog out & said the dog smelled Percocet in the car. So he said he had probably cause. Found some of my prescriptions. He arrested me and charged me with carring Percocet that wasn't in the bottle. Went to jail & gave me a field test & then charged me with a dui. He never gave me a breath Elizer test. When I got my court notice he charged me with alcohol. I don't drink.
There are many defensible issues that I see in your case, but the internet is not the place to get real answers. You...
My younger brother and I got MIPs while we were visiting Sandestin, Florida. The officers didn't never saw us with alcohol.
The cops took my fake ID but didn't charge me for it. My younger brother didn't have a fake ID. They saw us walking out of a bar and stopped us. We were both given MIPs. We were never breathalyzed and no other form of sobriety test was performed. Is it safe for me to fight my MIP charge? Or will they just pin me for a fake ID with the evidence that they already seized? My deadline is September 9th.
If you were never in possession of alcohol the state can't prove you were in possession of alcohol (assuming you didn't...
