In regards to a DWI in a town hours away from home, is it better to get an attorney from the arresting area, or closer to home?
It happened in a rural town outside of Clarksville, TX (Red River County) and I live in Plano, TX about 2 hours away. I'm concerned that a lawyer here wouldn't have the upperhand in the form of connections that others from that area would. Does this play an important factor?

I was in a wreck in 2008, which resulted in 2 back surgeries, and knee surgery, so I was prescribed pain medication for a few years. After all surgeries, and pain management, I was put on Buprenorphine, to help body adjust, and also for acute back pain management. Every Rx I've had, were 100% legitimate.

Is she allowed (legally) to make decisions for my medical treatment?
Your PO is not a doctor and has no say in your medical care. As long as the medications are prescribed to you and you...
