Williamsburg Law

What should I expect in court and what can I do to help myself? (VA 19.2-306)
I picked up a DUI in Oct 2011 and a DUI 2nd Dec 2011 in the James City County. I have since then completed my jail and began my ASAP counseling. On Nov 2012, I picked up an "Evading and Eluding" while on Colonial Parkway. I went to court in York Country Feb. 2013 for the charge and picked up a plea deal to drop the Drunk in Public and stick with the Evading and Eluding pending 2 years good behavior and enrolling into a PO program. Since then I have completed my 16 week behavioral course as well as my 4 week ASAP and have been compliant with my Probation Officer on all alcohol/drug screenings. I understand the Evading and Eluding from York brought up the violation of my DUI 1 and DUI 2, they are bringing back 85 days for the first and 9 months for the second. I have received a Show Case.
The Commonwealth's attorney will probably argue that you should do the rest of your time for violation of the "good...
I am on Unsupervised felony probation, I still owe fine but have been paying on them, Can I move out of State?
I was arrested on a third offence DUI in 2009, I was sentenced to 5 years in jail (3 suspended) and 15 years probation. I have served my time, and am now on unsupervised probation for over a year. I would like to move out of state. But I still owe fine. Will I be forced to stay until my fines are paid ?
Let me preface this by saying that I am licensed only in Ohio and generally deal wih only Ohio probation dealings and...
Why would I have gotten a show cause court appearance & what does it mean?
I was convicted of 1st offense dwi and had to do ASAP, counseling & get interlock. I got interlock and had a failed reading in jan, but feb and mar readings were clean. Why would I have gotten a show cause summons? Will they revoke my probation and make me serve jail time? I was never served with a summons for the court appearance. Found out about it when enrolling in ASAP because they were asking weird questions about my address and restricted license so I checked court website
The show cause represents an allegation that you have failed to comply with the court’s order. Compliance with the...
Driving after forfeiture of license ( Williamsburg , VA )
Pulled over tonight for defective equipment . Found out still had restricted license . DUI 2nd in 2010 , arrested February . I went to court in April for that . 1 year revoked . 2 years restricted . I thought my license was reinstated this month come to find out not until April . More than compliant as i have paid all my fines and completed asap . Honestly thought my license was back to normal and all i had to do in April was get a new copy without the code . my charges in 2010 were driving after forfeiture of license ( noble pr ) DWI 2nd ( m 10 days suspended ) refusal / blood breath ( noble pr ) defective equipment

This is my second mip offense how serious will my charges be and will the police contact my college?
Alright so I was at a party that the police busted and my girlfriend and I were breaking up, I was crying on the sidewalk when the police come over and ask for my age. I give them all the information they ask and they gave me a traffic ticket for underage possession of alcohol with a court date. I did not get a breathlyzer. Now my first offense I'm not sure what it was because I was taken to the hospital for non alcohol related purposes by the police, but I had to do 24 hours of community service and had to right a alcohol related paper. I did not go to court for my first offense. So will this be treated as a second offense and will my license get suspended? Also will I be needing a lawyer or will this not be that serious? Will the police contact the college about this infraction?
I need more information. Do you not know if you were convicted of possession of alcohol previously? This is a...
