What's the best approach in getting representation (Lawyer verses public defender). In our financial situation?
My son got his second DUI 4 days ago with an accident, there were no injuries but he did hit a residential fence and gate with approx $5,000 in damages he does have insurance. His BAL was 0.14 breath. he was taken to jail then booked at the station and released to my custody about 2 hours later. His first DUI was in Sept 2011 with a BAL of 0.17 breath. I am retired and he works part time. Lawyer quotes are between $6,000/$7,000
Keep shopping. He needs a lawyer, but those fees are a little high unless the case is going to trial. You may want to...

My car was damaged in my work parking lot because of a drunk patron.
I work at a bar, where my car was parked in the very front of the bar. One of the patrons was asked to leave and a fight ensued involving security, right in front of my car. The drunk patron kicked my car causing over $2000 in damages. He was arrested for vandalism as I pressed charges. My employer advised that I shouldn't have pressed charges and that its "just a car" and no big deal. Its a brand new car, so the damages are expensive. I did open a claim. and plan to go thru my insurance. But my question is whether my job is responsible under any premise liability for the damages. Because now I have to pay my $1000 deductible for something that's "no big deal" to my employer.
You may be able to get restitution for the damage to car through the criminal justice system, including your deductible...
My son is 27 yrs old and just got his 3rd DUI the first one was 2006 the 2nd 2009 and the 3rd was this weekend
we posted bail yesterday he has 2 court appearances for 6/6 and 6/24. I believe this is going to take more than a public defender I am looking for someone who frequents the Orange county courthouse and is familiar with the judge/staff there. looking for an attorney who deals mostly with DUI's. please advise if I am correct in getting a private attorney. One other thing since the time is short do you think the court will give us another date to come back since we need to contact a lawyer? He was arrested in Tustin not driving but actually standing outside the car which was parked when the police arrived but was charged with a DUI because a witness said they saw him driving.
You are on the right track. You want to find a local DUI defense attorney. The date for the 6th may have been an in-...
My son was picked up in orNge county on a DUI it would be his 3rd but the officer said his 2nd does it drop off records?
It has been I think 9 years I believe for his first and about 4 years ago on his 2nd what do you think he is looking at?
A DUI can no longer be used as a prior when 10 years have passed between arrest dates.
On probation for second DUI, got citation for being drunk in public area. And wasn't rude to police. Just lost.
My boyfriend is on probation for his second DUI. He took care of the first one and only needs 11 more days of community service to be done with his second one. On Christmas night we celebrated at his aunts and he drank. We called a taxi, taxi picked us up but dropped us off down the block after we said we only had our card. While walking back to his families house we got stopped. Cop took my boyfriend under custody. And another cop took me back to my hotel.(I passed the sober test) 20 minutes later I call the whittier police station and they say the released him to postpetarian hospital (he vomited in the cop car and cop called ambulance to pick him up.)
