I was stopped at a road block. I first provided a blood sample and later asked for the Breathalyzer as an independent test about 45 mins after my arrest. If it was reduced to reckless driving, would I be able to have the DUI arrest expunged from my record? This is a first offense with no previous record.
It is a possibility that your case can be reduced based on the limited information that you have provided. What the...

I have 2 DUIs and required having an interlock device installed into my car. Had it for 3 months now with no issues. Early Saturday morning, I gargled mouthwash as I was getting ready to leave for Athens to get some work done and make it to community service (I reside now in Kennesaw). I waited a few minutes before trying to start the car. It failed me, so I freaked out, shut off the car and went back inside. I tried again 4 hours later, and it failed me for a 2nd time. Again I shut it off, tried calling the service provider to see what can be done. Still haven't gotten a response. I passed the 3rd attempt 3 hours later after replacing the mouthpiece. No issues with the retests. My next service date is coming up June 20th, and I am extremely worried about the 2 fails. What next?
Realizing this is mere speculation, contact the Lawyer that represented you on the DUI's, possible violation of...
I am a first offender m.i.p and I had a drug test on wednesday, but I consumed alcohol on Saturday so I have the potential to fail. I got sentenced to straight probation instead of pretrial like my friends who I got arrested with. Will I be arrested on my next appointment on Wednesday or what will the consequences be?
That is really up to the probation officer and the judge, but generally if you fail a screen they will usually revoke a...
My husband was arrested in Lavonia, GA for DUI. Your website says to get an attorney in the county of arrest, there are none. What is the closest city or town to hire a reputable attorney who will know the layout of local law in Lavonia? My husband has a previous DUI in 2000 in Tennessee. His court date is 5/19/14. He is charged with DUI .217, open container and failure to maintain lane. We will need to make payments on an attorney. His NC license was taken and he was given a 30 day permit.
Just search on Avvo for lawyers in that area. There are a lot of good lawyers around there (make sure they are licensed...
I didn't blow and also passed sobriety tests.
If you went to trial and won, I would discuss your proposed lawsuit with your attorney who apparently did an...
I got a DUI in Athens about a year ago. I live in AL, so the judge allowed me to file "e-reports" every month instead of reporting in person. I filed my last e-report in February (I paid off my fines sooner), so I thought I was through with probation. However, I went to get my license reinstated, and the DMV clerk told me I had a warrant out for my arrest in GA. It was issued in January, it is now April.. I had no idea about the warrant. I apparently violated probation for failing to prove community service, classes, ect. I did the community service and the classes, but I did not send in the papers before they were due. Is there any way to get the warrant cleared if I prove I completed everything?
Maybe. You are going to have to contact an attorney in GA to look into the warrant for you and find out if your...
