Can I get this public intoxication ticket dismissed in court?
I admittedly was drunk when I hitched a ride with my friend to another friend's place where I would reside for the night. We were following behind the aforementioned friend where my driver ran a red light. Shortly after we were pulled over (I in the passenger seat) about 3 blocks from our destination. My friend was asked a series of questions and then arrested for running a red light and "being rude to the officer". I was communicating with the officer and she told me that I may walk to my friend's place but that changed when her lieutenant arrived. I was given a field sobriety test and then arrested. I had given the officer the address of my friend's house a couple of times letting her know the proximity of the destination but it was to no avail. Neither of us were read our rights. Help?

DWI Attorney is nonresponsive - getting scared.
I got charged with two dwi firsts within the span of a few months. Was going through a messy divorce. Both had very high BAC's one involved an accident where nobody was hurt. Moved out of state hired an attorney to take the case up. He keeps resetting the case but wont keep telephone appointments or call me back. What should I do? Is he going to drop the case? Have been seeing an alcohol treatment counselor and going to meetings hoping that may help my case. Thanks. Very worried here. Also any speculation as to what sentencing would be like would be helpful.

Community service(have been completing), SCRAM for a year(because no car) for one year. I have had zero violations, promoted three times in the last year at work, and been a model probationeer. My lawyer has been attempting to get a removal order for my scram as its now been 13.5 months. The judge is now saying that she wants me to come see her, and is "willing to" remove my scram but keep me on monitoring via soberlink. I'm so confused and quite honestly depressed by all of this. I don't know what else I had to do to comply, is this normal?
Something about your case, which I am sure is not mentioned here, makes the judge think that she may not want to...
Do I need a experienced DWI lawyer in Texas?
My daughterpled to a DWI in 2008 (TEXAS). She received a second DWI in July 2011 went to trial before the judge and was sentenced 250 days on Oct. 13th, 2013. While out on bond awaiting her trial she received another DWI on August 2013 before the trial was up for the second one. The one she received July 2011 (which would have been her second one is still up in the appeals court). She is now having to face pleaing to the (second one) which is actually her third one (if that makes sense) or going to trial. My husband and I want to get her another attorney because the one we currently have has advised her to take the plea for the one she received Aug. 2013. We are scared if she does take the plea how will this affect her appeal if it comes back affirmed. Please HELP!!! TEXAS DWI
