Does a good DUI attorney know which judges are better to be presiding over a trial?
I would imagine certain judges in a city or county are tougher on DUIs than others. Will a good DUI attorney attempt to have a case tried before a more potentially lenient judge?
There is an old saying in the law. A good lawyer knows the law, a great lawyer knows the judge. Yes, good DUI lawyers...
Will DWI mistrial most likely be retried?
DWI Superior Court Mistrail question. My case is still pending in Disctrict Court but if I'm found guilty and appeal for a Superior Court trial, what happens if there's a hung jury and a mistrial is declared? It is likely the DA would re-try the case? I'm just weighing my options due to the legal costs. Also, do a lot of DWI cases end up with a hung jury?
Asker, many cases in general end in a hung jury... it's difficult to get 12 people to decide on something and there's...

If you have access to 2 vehicles what prevents you from installing interlock on one car while using the other car?
If you have to have an interlock device on your car for a period of time could you not install the device on one vehicle yet use another vehicle for your daily needs? I have heard those things cause engines to stop while you are driving down the highway, doesn't sound very safe to me.
You certainly could do that in order to get the time to start running on the interlock restriction but if you are...
Which state laws are followed after assignment of interlock ignition device?
Because of the draconian NC laws regarding DWI I will have to have an interlock ignition device for 3 years, however, there is a strong possibility I may get a job in another state in a few months. Most other states only have 6 months-1 year of interlock. If I move to a different state before the device is required and establish residency in that state then which state laws apply?
If you are planning on getting a license in another state, you should be fine as long as you have paid the...

Failure to appear for underage drinking: will I go to jail?
Last April while I was still 18, I was cited for 'consumption of alcohol <19' I accidentaly showed up late for court and after sitting there for hours waiting for my name to be called, I was taken into custody, processed, and charged with failure to appear. I was able to make bail and be released that night, but now I am very worried about my next court date in a few weeks. What is the most likely scenario/outcome and what are my best options going forward?
You should get an attorney. It shouldn't cost too much for a small matter like this.
