Before she moves on to another lawyer, I told her I would ask you guys. She young (35) but in Her younger days she got a couple DWIs . She was told she was to lose her license until early 2013. So she went to get reinstated and they said the law changed in 2012 during her suspended or revoked time and she would have to do 5 MORE years.
