Pulled over for DWI but the video contradicts the officers report and no reason for the PBT. Talking to my lawyer I guess up to the judge to convict or dismiss the case but the attorney offered a plea which was lower than the original conviction. I'm confused why they do not want me to contest the license revocation. Should I take the offer or not.
If you fail to contest the revocation, it will become final, and can be used in the future to make another DWI more...
I recently hired a dwi lawyer, of course this is my first time and I do not know much about how laws or lawyers do there job. My lawyer that I paid half already says just wait till court date and we will go on from there. I don't know if he even investigated my case nor did he gather any information about my case. Is that really how it works that my lawyer waits till court date and never informs me about anything else?
Every lawyer has a different approach, but above all you should be comfortable with how your case is being handled. I...
I missed my Implied consent dates since the courts/ DMV sent my revocation to an old address, however I won my Criminal case, Can I appeal the impled consent?
You can always try. The 30 day filing deadline is a very strict requirement, but if you never received a notice, and it...
The drunk driver’s insurance company is totaling out my car. There is a lone on the car. They are telling me that I have to come up with the money to pay off the loan before I can retain ownership of the car. I want them to pay off the loan, deduct the value of the car from the settlement, and give me a check for the remainder with a salvaged title. There reply has been that there’s a MN state law saying that they can’t pay off the loan on the car without taking ownership of the vehicle. They will pay off the loan only if they get to keep the car in other words otherwise I have to come up with the money to pay off the loan before I can keep the car and receive a check from them. Why do I have to come up with money to pay off the loan before I can keep the car? FYI: the driver was arrested.
You may want to check your loan documents and see if you have GAP insurance. GAP covers the difference between what...
I had a .11 DWI,Improper line usage on my ticket and started talking with all the lawyers on this website and other website but I am having a hard time choosing the best one for my case to dismiss the case or convert it to much less effective like Careless Driving or CONTINUANCE FOR DISMISSAL.I don't mind spending some money but not able to choose

Depends on the lawyer. Let me tell you what EVERY lawyer hears, all the time: "for criminal cases, get your fee up...
I was asleep in the driver's seat of the car with the key in the ignition in a parking lot for a few hours before the cop showed up. I told the cop that I had a few beer to drink and pull over to the parking lot to sleep because I was feeling tire. He gave me the field sobriety test and did a 2nd breathalyzer test at the station. I ask for the blood test instead but he refuse that. I felt that my BAC was so high with the breathalyzer test because I blew very hard and with all my breath. Any chance I can use the Probable cause defense to win this case? I feel that the cop did his job and it will be hard to find error on his part. Any advice would be helpful other than to hire an experience DWI lawyer. This is also my first offense with no prior criminal record.
