Can an experienced "DWI" attorney represent me on short notice TOMORROW for a 3rd offense DWI matter?
It is my third offense, and I am trying to avoid the mandatory penalty of 10 year license suspension & *ESPECIALLY* the mandatory jail time. I do have a drug problem and have been attempting to get checked-in to an inpatient rehabilitation center however it has NOT been that easy to get into one on such short notice. I was in court last Thursday & met with the Public Defender for the first time however he did not offer me any type of deal nor try to help me in any way, therefore I informed the judge that I was not happy with the services given to me by the public defender and I suggested to hire my own attorney (the judge was furious with me but thankfully gave me a 1 week extension to return to court with my own attorney the following week). Court's tomorrow & I don't know what to do...

DWI almost a year ago, still no court date. Lawyer hasn't even received the discovery. Does this sound right?
I got charged with a DWI last April, & was given a court date. I hired an attorney who postponed the court appearance and requested the discovery. Its almost a year later and still no discovery and still no court date. My lawyer says to stay quiet and we'll see how it goes. Does this sound normal to everyone? This is the 1st time I've ever gone thru with this, but friends of mine have had DWI cases & they went to court within a couple months of their incidents. I'm hoping the delay in my case going to benefit me rather than hurt me. What could be causing the delay in my case?

DUI ... losing your license.
If you lose your license for DUI, does the Court actually TAKE your physical license, or do you just lose the privilege to drive? When you do lose your privilege to drive, does the Judge order it to begin that very day or for a future day so you can drive home from court?
The Court will require you to turn in your physical license at the of sentencing. If you need to grive home, the Court...

Can I get my dwi case dismissed?
Back in April I got a dwi in which i crashed a vehicle which wasn't mine and damaged some property @ blew a reading of .20. I was given a court date by the arresting officer for the following week. I hired an attorney, who put in for a postponement, entered a not guilty plea & requested the discovery. Its been over 5 months later, my attorney still hasn't received the discovery or a court date. He thinks the court may have lost my case. He's just telling me we should keep quiet & see how it goes, but if there's an chance of it getting dismissed due to the lack of providing the discovery, I'd like to get this over with already. I'm just looking for a 2nd opinion, ultimately I'm going to follow my attorneys advice. Thanks
