1st DUI, no priors but on probation
no prior DUIs so this is a first, but on probation through the state supervision unit, no longer through local level. Will they violate and if so, is there a way to avoid jail?
You should set up a free consultation with a qualified DUI Defense attorney to discuss your case.

Do I need a lawyer for a first time offender in a DUI case? and what precautions should i take prior going to court?
I was pulled over on december 23rd at 3:00 am. and i was arrested for a DUI. I am 18 years old, and this is my first conviction of a DUI. I was asked by a police officer to step out of my car to perform several field sobriety tests, and then I was arrested. Once I arrived at the police station I was given a breathalyzer test in which I scored .0348. I was then released on a 500 dollar bail and scheduled a court date for January 7th. I am very concerned about this due to the fact that I am currently in a legalization/naturalization process.
Yes, you should contact a lawyer (or more than one to find the one who is the best fit for you). I would not advise...

DO NOT contact the officer involved. If they failed to file something and intended to, or some other mistake was made,...
