License suspension because of DUI/DWAI
I am waiting for my DMV hearing (submitted the request in writing, not in person). I have not received my temporary permit yet. I am assuming my license will be suspended at the hearing for 1 month (1st offense DUI (.09). Can my lawyer apply the time I have been without a license (waiting for the hearing, and not yet received my temporary permit) to the time when it will be in all likelihood taken away? For example, after my 7 day period, I have been without a license for about a week. If it takes another week to get my temporary permit., can these 2 weeks without the license be applied to the suspended period, so that after the hearing, it would be 2 weeks without (2 weeks prior + 2 weeks after) hearing? Kind of like time served?
I agree with the way you have analyzed the time period and it definitely sounds correct to me but you need to contact a...
Colorado DUI failure to appear warrant
About 2 years ago in Colorado at a routine traffic stop I was charged with a DUI and let go. I returned to washington because the police officer told me I could do my hearing over the phone. A couple days before my court date I called the court to find out how to do this hearing. I was informed this was incorrect and I needed to be in colorado in 2 days. So I spent all my money on a bus ticket to colorado for my pre trail hearing (not sure what its called) and excepted a plea deal that involved probation and a reduced charge. I was unable to complete this due to lack of funds. I was homeless with no job. I now have an FTA warrant and just want to know if a lawyer might be able to help with the situation, and what kind of jail time I'm looking at. I blew a .081 if that helps.
Yes a warrant is likely active. Depending upon the jurisdiction and judge, a lawyer can sometimes quash the warrant...

Is there a chance this will count as a second DUI?
5 years ago, my fiancé was arrested twice in a week for DUI. The second was deferred and closed as it was right at the legal limit and the first was a standard conviction. He was charged with another DUI after being pulled over for a broken tail light. Will this be treated as his second or third DUI? Is there any possibility for leniency as his govt job rests on it? As well as the closure of our pending home purchase etc. I've seen the man drink less than a handful of times and can't imagine how derailed our lives could get over such stupidity.
He needs to hire a local lawyer that is familiar with DUi laws. This is a tricky situation where the DA can handle...

Can you be fired for a DUI for a non-driving job in Colorado?
My girlfriend works for a county. She was pulled over because the officer was not sure why she put her blinker on to turn and then changed her mind (turned off her blinker and went straight). After pulling her over, he smelled beer on her and asked her to take a breath test. She blew a .089. Could she be fired from her job? She has an attorney for the DUI. My company, which is private, says yes, if you have to drive, but case by case if not driving. This is her first DUI (and she already signed up for the alcohol classes).
Yes, a person can be fired from her job, especially an at will employee
