Marina del Rey Law

I was convicted of 1st offense DUI. DMV sent me a notice to get an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) for my vehicle for 6 months but I sold my car last year when I received the DUI and have been riding a motorcycle. DMV doesn't offer an IID for motorcycle so I'm forced to get an IID Exemption. DMV says it takes 4-6 weeks to get a decision on the IID Exemption but it has been 10 weeks. Is there any other legal solution since the DMV does not offer IID for motorcycles but it is a requirement?
Unfortunately there is not. At this point there is no IID for a motorcycle and I highly doubt there will be one in the...
The bullet went through her body and the doctors are not sure whether she will survive or not. Keep in mind that it was a complete accident and the other girl, I think, will most likely survive. The other one got arrested and was released on bail and was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Is it possible to point out to the DA that they were drunk and not in the usual state of mind during the incident? Can the charges be lowered in this unfortunate case in any way? What are some possible outcomes? It was an accident, the other person will not press charges and she was under the influence of alcohol. (I'm hoping that the whole alcohol thing could help her out although it probably is my wishful thinking).
Individuals do not make a decision whether to "press charges" or not. The District Attorney reviews police reports to...
If I got convicted for my third DUI in Riverside but im currently in LA, can I pick up the scram here? I have court tomorrow. Also whats the likely sentence if I dont get it? I did 5 months 1/2 time already. Thank you
SCRAM providers are located throughout CA. You really need to consult with an experienced DUI Attorney in Riverside...
No prior criminal record. Currently I'm represented by the public defender. My two attorneys say they don't believe the DA knows about the other case (they both think I have no crim. record with no pending cases). In essence I'm being offered two different first time DUI offenses. Is this right? If I plead in one, will I immediately have a DUI and then when pleading on the second be pleading to a "second time DUI". My attorneys appear not to know the answer to this question. Thank you.
This kind of thing can happen. Generally it happens when the second DUI is on top of the first and both DUI's are in...
I received a DUI on June 30, 2014. Court date was November 6, 2014. I have not received any papers from the Courts to date. Is this common? Has anyone seen or experience a client in my situation and finally did receive court papers? Thank you.
Yes. This is a lot more common than you think. I assume you went to your court date and they told you there was no...
I got a wet wreck less my first charge almost three years ago. I ended up crashing my car into a tree with passengers. I am being tried with five years prison time. Is this really going to happen? I have a current lawyer but I feel like he isn't doing an amazing job on trying to keep me out of prison because of my mothers need of a person at home 24/7. Help? Please.
If you do not feel like your current attorney is doing everything possible to help you, ask to speak to him face to...
For the record I was COMPLETELY sober and am 18. I was at the skate park when officers blocked the exits to the skate park and gave everyone tickets for being publicly intoxicated. I told them I had not been drinking and requested a test, they refused to give me one and still gave me a ticket.
Of course you can sue. Anyone can sue anyone for anything. The important question to ask is, "would I be able to win?"...
