Denton Law

Had the interlock on my jeep as terms of my bond on my 2nd dwi, the case was settled in Nov and I got time served and still have the interlock on there and my attorney will not return my calls!!
I normally would do that on the day of the plea but it's really not the attorney's responsibility at this point. If you...
Convicted of DWI in Dallas County, being transferred to Denton currently because I technically live in Denton County so that took about a month. First meeting (interview) is today in Denton. On the terms of probation paper I received from the judge, both "Submit to periodic urinalysis (is that supposed to be spelled like that?)" and "Do not consume alcohol during probationary period" are NOT checked. If a urine analysis (I think that's the correct spelling) test is requested of me, am I legally required to submit to the request?
Yes, as most probation terms also carry a catch all that states basically do everything probation tells you
I was convicted by Denton county for Class B DWI and lost my license for 365 days. I work full time, and wish to apply for an occupational license. I have called one attorney so far, and he says the service provided (in full) is $1000. Is this a going rate or does it vary by attorney? Do I need to show up in court for the license or can the attorney get it in my absence? Are payment plans available for this service? Finally, I have an insurance quote with SR22 available which is good until November 1st.
Honestly, that sounds about right. I know some attorneys charge more than that...and some charge a little (not much)...
I am currently appealing my DWI conviction in Texas and my attorney has advised me that i did not need to pay the surcharges associated with the conviction since he case is under appeal.My question is the DPS is showing that my license is invalid right now because I have not paid the surcharges. I'm concerned that if I am pulled over I will be arrested. What should I tell/ show the officer if I am in fact pulled over to avoid this. I would ask my attorney but he is in court this week and hard to get in touch with.
There are other questions: Did you request a hearing for the license suspension within 15 days of your arrest. Your...
I just learned that Denton, TX filed D.W.I. Charges against me. I heard about pre-trial diversion programs and would like to explore the idea. I verified that Denton, TX offers the program but I could not find any information about qualifying criteria or how to enter. Is this program something that has to be filed by a lawyer or can I do it myself? Can someone please give me information on how to make this possible? For the record, I am 28 and this is my first offense.
You are right that Pre-Trial Diversion (PTD) must be negotiated for by an attorney, as a ADA cannot negotiate with a...
I was pulled over for speeding, I live in Louisiana and it was at night on a highway so I wasn't too sure of the speed limit. I know it gives the probable cause, I did the sobriety tests, passed one 100% and the other I failed. This was my first offense ever on my record. I'm not trying to get out of probation, or the fines I take all responsibility. My lawyer said that if I take any plea though, the DWI will stay on my record my ENTIRE life. That's Insane to me. I was applying to get into Marine OCS but I can't with a DWI on my record and I am so sick about it. Is there anyway reckless driving is an option? Would a letter sent to the DA stating who I am, the accomplishments I made, or a letter from my recruiter help in anyway??
You need to discuss this with your attorney and he or she can tell you what your options are. Your BAC is high so that...
Want to know the process that will result from a bad urinalysis in Denton probation. Will an arrest warrant need to be issued before being taken into custody? Basically, I want to know if I will be able to see things coming so that I can make plans for family, pets, etc before going to jail. And get an attorney involved too. My nightmare scenario is showing up to report and finding out I am being taken into custody.
The best strategy is to have an attorney on your side prior to facing any allegations of probation violations. In...
