My car was hit by drunk driver driving parents' car, her insurance refuses to cover accident. What can I do?
My car was hit by drunk driver driving parents' car, her insurance claims she is on 'excluded list' and won't cover. The police report lists her as fully responsible. What can I do?
You are in a horrible spot. If you don't have collision coverage or uninsured motorist property damage (which covers...
Can I record my roommate being drunk in the living room, conscious or unconscious to build a case to have him evicted?
My roommate destroyed his room while in a drunk rage and now spends 90% of his time in the living room. He sleeps most of the day to my knowledge, and he is prone to having night terrors; he screams and shouts VERY loudly during the day, night, and its very disturbing(for hours). Can I record him to build a case against him to my landlord of his drunken behavior and that he is unsuitable to keep living with us? He does this for a week every few months and I've have enough. And he bangs on my door while drunk for various reasons while I'm trying to mind my own business. Student going to college close to campus, he is a student at a neighboring school.
Why don't you just talk to the landlord and ask to leave? You may not need to video your roommate at all. If that...

Is it usually better to hire a private attorney than to be appointed a public defender?
I had a public defender when I was charged with wet and reckless driving and he had so many clients in the court room that I spoke to him for about 10 minutes total from the start of the proceedings to the end. He basically said "Plead guilty and take the plea bargain", he showed up to court late, he forgot paperwork that would have helped my case (such as the fact I blew a 0.00 BAC on the breathalyzer) and he mumbled and stuttered. Normally I NEVER would have taken the plea bargain but I just didn't feel I had a chance in heck of winning in a trial, simply because I felt my public defender didn't have the experience or professional demeanor to put up a satisfactory defense. So would a private attorney be a better choice?
Some public defenders are really good, others are not. The same is true of private attorneys, though. The difference...
In California does a wet & reckless count as a first strike under the Three Strikes Law?
I plead guilty to DUI a few years ago in return for the DA reducing the charge from DUI to wet & reckless, and I was wondering if that counted as a first strike? The judge never said anything to the tune of "This is your first strike", but I am not sure if he has too, or if it is assumed that the lawyer is supposed to tell me (which he didn't - public defender). Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
No. A wet is not a strike. Only certain crimes rise to the level of a strike. Visit this page for a list of CA...
I have two DUI's one 2005 and one 2007 . i had a commercial license class a when i got them.
i was not driving a commercial vehicle but was in my personal vehicle. they are telling me that those dui's will both be on my record for 55 yrs. and the 4 points associated with those offenses will remain for the same amount of time. I am currently in the process of obtaining my class a again as i gave it up after the second one and am afraid that i will never be able to be hired because of the points. is there any action i can take legally to fight those points or a possible hearing that i can get with DMV to see if i can get those points removed for the sole purpose of employment. i want to drive for a living if possible. i definitely respect my license more now . please help. i was just issued my commercial permit yesterday so i know i have not lost it for life
Second time DUI usually means that your commercial driving privileges are suspended for life. Given that your cases...
