My friend was pulled over last weekend in suspicion of DUI, but when he only took one shot and when he was tested at station, he got below the level of DUI but put in jail for a day anyways( which is possible I hear). My friend asked a lawyer to hear his case and his total lawyer fee amounted to be near 7000dollars. I felt bad for him getting pulled over, because he really was basically giving me a ride, but I don't understand how expensive this is. Is this normal????

My boyfriend lost his license 4-5 yrs ago due to DUIs (I'm pretty sure it's suspended). He is now in the process of getting it back. How can he get the financial hardship waiver for the ignition interlock without having to get a lawyer? Also, are these waivers city or county specific? Because he had a lawyer for a separate case and the lawyer got him a waiver, but it was for a different county. And said if he got the correct city he would have to charge my bf. If that's the case, how can he find the correct city on his own? thank you for all feedback

I was charged a 540.00 fine and now the DMV wants me to take a 355.00 DUI class, 210.00 reinstatement fee and my insurance rate will be high.

I was arrested for a DUI, I was not intoxicated. I took all the test and did the walking and ink pen thing as well. I have never been arrested for anything, never had anything more than a ticket. I Know I was not intoxicated. I am just starting a new job in GA and I cannot pay what a lawyer wants right now, but I need to mail this letter by Friday and today is Thursday. Have not been able to find exactly what should be in a letter of this type. Any information to assist me with the proper way to attack this would be gratefully appreciated. Thanking you in advance.

I got a DUI while in college in GA 1996, never had a GA drivers license. Moved back to SC, had sr22, paid my fine and went to class to reinstate my SC driving privileges. Recently movec to Atlanta & was told by the DMV my GA license is suspended and I have go to DUI school here to get a GA drivers license... I tried not to argue with the DMV rep but I am just not willing to pay any additional $ on top of what I paid 18yrs ago. Seems like a ripoff for double payment. Is there a limit or statue of time passed and why would I need to go to DUI school in Ga when I went in SC?

Conviction was out-of-state. Doctor does not currently practice in GA and is okay foregoing or withdrawing the GA medical license but wants to adequately notify the GA board to minimize disciplinary actions. Is there a duty to notify prior to license renewal? Would any investigation by the Board be made public?
