My son had a car accident in July 2012. The hospital reported it to the DMV as him losing consciousness while driving and are threatening to suspend/revoke his driving privileges. He has never had a ticket or an accident or any medical issues. Ever. Therefore, he doesn't have an existing physician to complete their required medical form. What do I do? I need a referral to a 1) doctor to complete the form; and 2) an attorney to help handle this. I have the medical records from the hospital regarding the accident in question. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
You need a criminal atty who will also handle the administrative matter with the dmv. What county did the accident...

DUI school 6. Victim panel Should I accept this or is this too much?
I would highly suggest you follow your attorney's advice on this one. First blush is some of it is a little steep but...
I was arrested for DUI. But there was some problems with the initial stop. Following is the report of the officer for the initial stop, I observed the defendant operating a Nissan armada at Some state road and some street. At this point I was behind the vehicle west bound on state road, when the driver abruptly applied his brakes and after slowing to a stop began a three point turn in the middle of the state road. After turning around the vehicle abruptly sped on the state road, at which time I attempted to stop the vehicle. Can anyone give their views on my chances of winning this motion to suppress?
A lot more information would be needed to give a fair estimation as too your chances. Consult with an experienced DUI...
My roommate is on probation for 1st dui. He was driving on his suspended license, and received a ticket.
He had already received a ticket, for driving on suspended license, following his dui. Instead of jail time, he was told he was facing week in jail, they put him on probation. He told his officer on his next visit and was told he will violate him at the end of the month and issue a warrant for his arrest. I was wondering how much jail time is typical for violating probation, and also is jail time necessary for getting 2 tickets for driving on suspended license after a dui. Thank you in advance.
He can get up to 6 months county jail on the DUI charge, up to 60 days on the 1st Suspended License Charge (assuming it...
The first time, he was arrested on site, and spent one week in jail waiting for court. He had fines to pay and time served. This time since he only received a ticket, he doesnt believe he is looking at jail time at all. I thought if you never got your license back from dui, and got a ticket for driving on suspended license there is mandatory jail time. Side note, his probation has terminated(he completed it before this event). I was wondering is he looking at jail, or more probation, or is he right that a ticket is just a ticket? Thank you for the help.
Very difficult to answer. He is not facing mandatory jail time. Whatever he is facing will be based on the attitude...

FL will absolutely and unequivocally hold you accountable for your NY DUI, however they will only do so to the extent...
Can a judge arrest me for failure to appear when a waiver of appearance was filed by private counsel?
I contracted a lawyer to help me on a weak DUI case. This lawyer had me sing a waiver of appearance that includes wording from the Florida Rules Criminal Procedures. I later had to appear in court with the attorney who said the judge wanted to see me. In the court the judge was upset and even though the attorney took responsibility he asked the bailiff to take me in to custody. I was Jailed for over 25 days before the Failure to Appear was dismissed. The bond was forfeited and I had to post a new bond. The attorney did not respond to my calls and he withdrew as my attorney . What can I do?
Sounds like the attorney may have done something negligent. Or, he may have made a mistake. I'd contact an attorney...
