Will I need an attorney for a first time DUI?
This is my first offence in anything. My records are otherwise clean. My report reads that I had fallen asleep at a stop light (it was around 4am) with my foot on the break when the arresting officer woke me and proceeded to perform the field sobriety tests. I was compliant throughout the process, but I'm also seeing my BAC was at .173/.172... And I'm not sure of the likeliness of being able to successfully request at least an hardship license before my 10 days are up. Or what options I may be eligible for- because I did see in the DMV handbook that first time offenders do have an option for reinstating a suspended license due to a DUI. I will probably need an attorney anyway if I want to have the incident expunged. So if I plan to do that is it best to just get an attorney asap?
You should definitely consult with and retain an experienced attorney in the Hillsborough County area. There may be...
How can I go about fixing this and find an affordable attorney for something that seems rather simple. Havent been in trouble si
I had an OVI in the state of Ohio in 2011, first time offense. I was finally able to pay the $490 reinstatement fee a few months back, $15 of which the bmv site said was for a warrant block. I was only staying in Ohio temporarily and had a wife and child still living in north Dakota, but due to a rocky marriage, was continually being forced to relocate. I am now in Florida and have been for 3 years. I called them and was told I had a bench warrant, was transferred to the probation office where no one answered, so I left a message explaining my situation to which I never received a response. I am almost certain I am going to need an attorney, just not certain what direction I need to go in to get this off weight off my back and get on with my life, with driving privileges.
I practice in CA, and I don't know what the requirements are for a DUI conviction regarding the license to drive, but I...
Can you have a reevaluation for therapy hours
I'm currently on probation for a dui in Colorado and my origional probation officer passed away which prevented me from getting timely answers. I was sentenced from him 56 hours of therapy that even puzzled my therapist to why I had so many hours. I do not have a problem with alcohol, nor does my therapist think I have an issue with alcohol. Just a bad decision to drink and drive the one time. I was wondering if there was a way to lower my therapy hours or get rid of them altogether. I should have been referred to a therapist but instead he decided to make the decision of my therapy.
You may want to consider filing a Motion to Modify Probation. See if your therapist and probation officer would support...

The answer is "Yes." You were more than cited; the police arrested you. Be honest and upfront about it.
I received two dui's in three weeks and both cases were tried at the same hearing. should i be granted a reduced sentence

I went for my administrative review and was referred for a special purpose supervision license because of 2 dui's within 5 years. This is Florida statute but i was informed that a review judge can take into his discretion the facts of the case and overrule the statute and grant a regular business only license....is this true and can I appeal the decision if it is true and this time go with an attorney.
The 2 DUI convictions within 5 years carries it's own DL suspension and penalties; the DMV (administrative) suspension...
