I was drunk and fell asleep at the wheel. I wrecked my car into a ditch and totaled it. I got transported to the hospital but was alright, and I got charged with wreckless driving and a DWI. I need advice on what to do next.
He has a court date set for June but can it be moved up or settled out of court sooner?
How do you find a reputable lawyer?
What's the chances of getting the charges dropped and not showing on record?
Should I contact my insurance agent or wait to see the judgement?

Arrange a consult with a local defense attorney. Most attorneys offer free consults.
Attorney said I need to have a bankruptcy att to fight the bankruptcy on judgement. Trustee is saying that judgement just says negligence but police report from accident says DWI from night of accident,
We were all hanging out and talking amongst each other, and a neighbor of ours had gotten completely drunk and decided to choke and slap his wife while arguing with her... A friend of mine and a neighbor that lived at the apartments pulled him off of her, picked him up by his arms and legs, and set him in the hallway. During the entire night, he hit and choked her 3 times. He walked downstairs by the apartment fence, and sat down. When my neighbor and friend went to go and try to calm him down and help him stand up, he kicked my friend in the groin. After awhile, the guy and his wife started fighting again, so we called the police. Police came, got statements and took him to jail. Now the guy wants to press charges on them saying they beat him up when they obviously didn't. Can he do that?
If I have this straight, your question is if the drunken neighbor can press charges against the police for roughing him...
