Thorndike Law

Does my daughter need to get a lawyer because a drunk driver caused a bad accident?
My daughter, 43, was hit head on by a repeat offender drunk driver who was arrested at the scene. Both cars were totalled. She was shaken up, went to the ER, and seems OK. However, he was uninsured. We found out today that she has to pay for her rental car as she doesn't have rental insurance.. I am afraid that she will end up with too little money from her insurance to buy a suitable replacement car. She is a single parent of 2 girls and barely makes ends meet. I am nervous about suggesting a lawyer. How would she pay and we know the driver has nothing to go after.
She should consult with a personal injury attorney in ME. Most initial consultations are free and attorneys will...
How long in Maine does it take the DMV to notify you of suspended license after oui arrest?
I was arrested almost three weeks ago for an oui. I was taken to the jail where I blew a .16 and then wasn't able to be bailed out until the next day. The arresting officer gave me a summons with a court date for this Monday. I have yet to hear anything from the DMV about my license being suspended. I have called and checked numerous times to check my status and as of today it is active with no pending suspensions. I am nervous because I know you only have 10 days to request an administrative hearing, but I'm not sure if its from 10 days after my arrest, or when I receive the suspension notification. If it's the former then I guess I'm not sure why my license would still be active. I do not have money for a private attorney and plan on asking for a court appointed one. Any thoughts?
While the law enforcement officer is suppose to file his report with the Secretary of State within 10 days, there is no...

Should I contest a speeding ticket if I already have a DUI reduced to reckless driving in the last year?
I was stopped for speeding. 68 in 50. When officer approached, I did admit that I was going "a little" too fast, but don't think it was that much over.
Sure you should. Just because you were arrested for DUI a year ago does not mean there is no chance for a good outcome...
Can I get charged an oui for driving on my own private property?
Police came to our house on an unrelated issue, I got arrested for oui while moving my truck from the side yard.
While I cannot speak for Maine law, most states have now defined DUI offenses in such a way that a person can be cited...
I banged up a truck, blew a .05, and got driving to endanger, but I'm underaged. At court will i get an OUI?
I was driving and turned to quickly and ran into a post. The cops came and took me to the station to get breathalyzed. I blew a .05 and he wrote on my summons driving to endanger. My friends tell me that ill still get an OUI.
The fact that you are under age 21 makes no difference for purposes of the OUI statute, which requires proof that any...
