Do I need an attorney for my first DUI in Colorado?
I got my first DUI and I live in Denver, I have been told not to waste my money on an attorney because it's my first DUI and Colorado's punishment/sentencing is pretty standard across the board for everyone. My blood came back as .23 (I have never been in trouble and am in the healthcare field) I don't want to put trust in other peoples advice and be blind sided when I could have done something to get the best outcome possible. I am not sure what the best course is since I have very limited funds , but will figure something out if it's the best choice. Can an attorney make a difference in my case?
It is always a good idea to consult with an attorney when charged with an alcohol related driving offense. This is...

Question about changes in Colorado Ignition Interlock device laws.
I started my 2 years of Ignition Interlock service in May 2014. It is a handheld breathalyzer device the connects to the battery and internal wiring of the vehicle. Apparently, a recent change in the law is requiring a dash mounted camera in addition to the interlock device. There is an additional fee for the camera. I have been sober for nearly three years now and have never had a failed test or a missed test on the interlock device. I am due to have the interlock removed in June 2016. I am being told that I have until October of 2015 (this year) to have the camera installed. So how can they require this since it was not a condition of the contract when I had the Ignition Interlock Device installed? Also, who would I need to contact to dispute this? Thank you
This requirement is not from the interlock company so it is not a matter that this was not a condition of the contract...
Is this considered double jeopardy at the DMV?
I was cited DUI last April 15 and refused all tests. I requested DMV hearing April 16 which was set June 6th. The officer requested a continuance and was reset to Sept 3. I plead guilty in court on Aug 3 and received DMV license revocation notice Aug 8 for 9 months via mail. At the DMV hearing given 1 year revocation. Can they legally make it 1yr revocation if I already received the original 9 Month before my hearing? They also have two different Case# as well.
No, it is not double jeopardy. With a DUI, it is two different issues. There is the criminal (where you went to...
Are there DUI lawyers who will just do sentencing?
I've already pled guilty to a DUI, but haven't been sentenced yet. My lawyer hasn't answered my calls or emails in the weeks since pleading. I have my sentencing hearing coming up and I'm not sure what to do. Are there lawyers who will help me at just the sentencing hearing? Or can I do it myself? I'd like someone to be able to share with the judge the classes I've already taken and other things to take into consideration. What should I do?
Yes, but it's concerning that there has been such a lack of communication from the lawyer you retained. You can...
