Wrightsville Beach Law

What am I facing? I just was charged with a DWI in NC. I have some priors, details below.
My priors consist of a DWI Level 5 conviction in '04, a misc. motor vehicle conviction (DWI under 21) in '09, a DWI Level 5 conviction in '13, and I had a DWI in '11 dismissed due to the arresting officer retiring before my trial. I am now facing my 3rd DWI and from the research I've done my life is over. Ironically, I have an important job and this has helped to lighten my sentencing before. Upon my sentencing for my priors, I've had to complete many substance abuse treatments/probation/fines but never have had an interlock device installed in my car. At this point I am voluntarily installing one now and plan on keeping it forever.
Consider contacting a local DUI lawyer asap for a free consultation.
Need some knowledge of DWI assessments and dwlr assessments in NC?
In NC when you get a dwi you are required to take an assessment and then the number of classes determined by the assessor. As of 2008 they also require you to take an assessment if you get a dwlr and your revocation had been due to a dwi. I had a dwi I was convicted of in 2012 and later got two dwlr conviictions. The dwi was in Brunswick county and the two dwlr were in New Hanover county. So my questions are will I have to take a seperate assessment and set of classes for each charge or can the three be consolidated? and also, can these assessments and classes be taken anywhere in NC regardless of the county of conviction?
How much time separated the two DWIR convictions in New Hanover county? Were they consolidated or handles separately?...
Is there any use in hiring a DUI attorney? Or any advice at all would help, really.
I was recently pulled in Shallotte, Nc and charged with DWI, possesion of marijuana, and drug paraphernalia. I am 17 years old and am aware of NC's zero tolerance policy towards underage drinking. My mother isn't very willing to help me, luckily i have my grandparents to fall back on for support. Any legal advice whatsoever would be an incredible help. I know i'm loosing my license for at least one year, but am more worried about the effect this will have on my grandparent's insurance, and my record.

Is it recommended for him to retain a lawyer foHe states he drove an adult to the ABC store where he stayed in the car as the adult purchased alcohol alone.

Do I have any chance of getting off a DWI arrest bc of a possible 4th Ammendment violation?
I was charged with a dwi in NC(2013) It is a unique circumstance where I was a passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over for speeding. The driver was arrested for a dwi and taken away and I was told not to drive. I was then pulled over for operating the vehicle about 30 minutes after the original driver was taken away. The original driver was let off of her convicted dwi on the basis of the police conducting an illegal stop. My question is do I have a case of getting off based on the illegal stop and evidence obtained whichthen the police used to stop me. Any thoughts?

possible that the DAs will be willing to reduce or dismiss my DWI to avoid a full blown jury trial? the DA in district court told me that they will fire him if he reduces a dwi
