So I really want to know what are the chances of paying a lawyer a Fee for a DWI - 2nd offense in 17 years - - that will come out in my favor - How does a lawyer really get a case lowered- My urine was .185 so before I blow my money I really need to know the chances of hiring a lawyer that will help my case. - Or am I wasting money ?
You have no chance of winning anything or obtaining a favorable outcome without a good dwi attorney. After all, do you...
I still have over two years remaining on a three year probation for a DUI and have decided to sit my time in jail instead. I will be moving once I am released from jail and don't plan on staying in MN. Once my jail time is over I will be eligible to earn my drivers license. My question is, would it be better to pay my reinstatement fee and acquire my MN license before I move to a different state? Can I earn another state license before I have paid that fee, or can I pay for the reinstatement fee in a different state? Hope that makes sense. Thank You
You will need to pay the reinstatement fee to the MN DMV first, plus complete any other requirements such as passing a...
My prosecuting attorney contacted my lawyer and said that she would put it down to a careless driving. He just told me that yesterday and I got my minor the weekend before. I also have not been to my second court date yet. What do you think I should do?
You will be receiving a summons in the mail. The summons will inform you when and where you have court. The first...
My first DUI was in WI 20 years ago My 2nd was 2 1/2 years ago in MN My 3rd a month ago in WI I have a WI attorney. My WI attorney mentioned that i should sit down w/a MN lawyer and discuss ramifications, steps to take, ect. I am a low income individual I've attempted to contact Pro Bono attorney's w/very little luck. I need to sit down w/a knowledgeable MN attorney and go thru some ?'s at an affordable rate. My question(s) is this: Do you happen to have/know of (A) a receptive,knowledgeable pro bono outfit in the DUI arena in Hennepin Cty preferably close to MG, (B) a knowledgeable attorney that i could sit down with for a half hour or so for $50-$100. Sorry, but i am just not having any luck and want to be proactive w/this. I've been assessed and am going to a 48 hour class. tia
Attorneys here do not solicit clients. I suggest you make a few phone calls. Tricia Dwyer Esq.
i WAS PULLED OVER IN ST PAUL, MN BY A EAGAN,MN COP FOR SUPPOSED SPEEDING, RAN MY INFO CAME BACK AND ASKED IF I HAD BEEN DRINKING said I had 2 beers he asked to get out and do a field sobriety test which I passed but then blew a .12 and was arrested for a DWI then 1/2hr later at the station they asked to blow again which I did and it was .10. Pulled my license within week have a court end of month. This is a first for any type of violation. Doesn't passing a field sobriety test count for something, also I thought there was a 2hr window before they did a second Breathalyzer. When the cop first pulled me over he said it was speeding but when I received the police it said nothing there a speeding.. Do I need a lawyer. I live in Minnesota.
I'd recommend retaining a lawyer to help you through this. As you note, you're license has been revoked in addition to...
So here are the details and the latest occurrence. I was convicted of 2nd degree DUI in MN in Oct 2014. The vehicle in the case had its forfeiture case in December and lost (not surprised). The vehicle was worth over $15,000 and in MN statute, it was to be returned to lender. The vehicle was released to my lender on 01/16/2015. I was discussing the next steps on the vehicle and the repossession supervisor with the lender asked me what I wanted to do with the vehicle. I asked him my options and he said I could let it go to auction and from there the remaining balance would need to be settled. He then asked me if I wished to pick up the vehicle pending payment of storage and towing $1500. The paperwork did NOT state "DO NOT RETURN TO OWNER". Would I be able to pick it up? via tow truck?
This is a good question. I don't know that anyone will be able to give you an answer. The statute seems to contemplate...
I have WI counsel. My attorney advised me to speak w/a MN attorney as well. (He didn't exactly say when, but initial ct date is @ the end of Feb) I have parents who live in WI & i grew up there. I've read (Karyn Missimer) posts about the Ntl Dr Register & Interstate Compact so i'm not completely clueless. She (Karyn) suggests that someone in my position obtain a Lic in WI and hope the DA agrees to charge me under the WI license. So my question is, what is your experience with this & is it subjective if I have a WI license? meaning, if i get a WI license and get charged under it, when i go to get a MN license in the future, can they impose penalties? tia.
Call WI DMV, indicate to them you are not a resident of WI, but rather a resident of MN and find out when you're...
