Los Alamitos Law

The school apparently don't accept direct court statements, instead they need an actual referral form from the court? I am confused because the judge told me to re-enroll and finish by February and I only have two class sessions left... I went though LA superior court.
A statement won't be acceptable. You need to take the court paper known as the minute order which you received from the...
I was arrested on suspicion of first time DUI on the 4th of July in Orange County, CA after hitting a parked car on a residential street. Nobody was injured and my insurance covered the damage to both vehicles. I was not speeding. I refused a chemical test so the police obtained a warrant at the jail. The blood results came back at .17 BAC. I was also age 20 at the time of my arrest? My court date is coming up in a couple weeks and I need to avoid jail time. I am a full time college student and I have been going to AA since the arrest and have documentation to prove it. I also cannot afford an attorney so i will have to stick with a public defender. What do you think the outcome will be?
It is difficult to ascertain what the likely outcome will be without having a chance to review your police report, etc.,...
My license was suspended by the DMV. I would like to file a writ of mandate. Is it possible for me to file a motion to augment?

If you can prove he lied, it may help at DMV. If he lies at DMV and you can prove it, it could help in court as...
My attorney was given a deal which involved pleaing to 23152(b), with 23152(a) being dismissed. However, when the judge was asking his questions during the proceedings, he asked about the 23152(a) charge and I was told by my attorney to plea guilty to that as well. Am I now stuck with both charges on my record or will one be tossed? He told me they will be merged for the purposes of sentencing, but I'm concerned that it will look like two convictions.
It depends on what really happened in court. It is far more preferable to plead to ONE DUI than to two different...
On May 18, 2014; I was pulled over for DUI in Orange County, CA. I blew .15 and .13 at the police station. I hired a lawyer who represented me at the DMV hearing. The lawyer won the DMV hearing and i was given a set aside order in October 2014. It was done by arguing, and subpoenaing the officer, that in the police report he wrote that I was swearving and straddling; however, he admitted that i actually never crossed the divider. My lawyer argued that swearving and straddling within my lane is not against the rules of driving. Not only that she argued that there was a violation of Title 17 because the officer failed to properly watched me for 15 minutes. I mean the arrest was obviously illegal as there was no probable cause since the DMV agreed with us.In trial,can i win with the DMV win?
At trial, the issue of whether the officer had reasonable suspicion to conduct a traffic detention is irrelevant - that...
