Morgantown Law

I was arrested a few days ago for a DUI. (less than week) I have an NJ license but the DUI took place in WV (where I live/attend school) Can I get my NJ license quickly transferred to a WV license so I will not face charges in two states?
You need to consult with an experienced DUI attorney. This is a complex issue that you must have an attorney for.
He received the first one (and the first ever run-in he's had with the law) in December, when he was pulled over and blew a 0.12. He was just pulled over again this weekend for running a yellow light and blew a .086. He was put on a deferral program for the first where he would be able to get it expunged after so many months, but now with the second one, we're both a little worried for him. The legal limit in this state is .08 (1 drink per hour), so he was just BARELY over, but we're still really worried about what's going to happen to him.
Possibly. Talk to a locally experienced defense attorney to learn about any defenses he might have and to discuss...
On a Thursday I was heading back from a party walking normally down a hill with my two friends, we had been drinking that night. Me and my one friend were fine, but the third friend was very drunk and knocked over a trash can. Cops stopped us and asked if we were his friend. We said yes and before even getting out of the car the two officers "claimed" they smelled alcohol on our breathe. We handed them out IDs and me being under 21 the officer immediately started writing me an underage consumption and public intox. I started arguing the PI because I was not being disorderly. The cops got fed up and arrested me and I was sent to County Prison for the night and had a video arraignment the next morning telling me my charges of underage and public intoxication.
At trial the prosecutor will have to prove the charge beyond a reasonable doubt. Hire a lawyer and cooperate to make...
It's my first offense and also got a possession of a controlled substance charge.
You need to hire and meet with a local layer in west Virginia and i suggest one who focuses on DWI cases.
At the police station 3 breath samples were inconclusive (I did not blow hard enough to register). I am 51 years old - live in PA and never have been in trouble ever. What to do? Trail is Oct 29th
The first thing you are going to want to do is consult with an experienced, well trained WV based DUI Defense Attorney....
I blew a .106 at the jail, I don't have much of a record outside of this, and was nothing but polite through the whole process.. I have a Morgantown municipal court hearing in July. I would like to enter the deferral program and just do the 90 days of no license without the interlock. I am also moving to South Carolina in July and would like to make that as seemless as possible.
I have a few thoughts. Just about everybody fails the field sobriety tests, as they are essentially designed to be...
He was driving on the interstate and was in a single vehicle accident only injuring himself and getting a DUI. His court court case has been cancelled and rescheduled 3 times since then. This last time for the arresting officer going to be on vacation. he now has to wait til 8/2013. Is there away his case can be dropped due to them continuing to cancel the dates?
Only IF there is the passage of 365 days of uninterrupted scheduling of a hearing would that be legally doable. Any...
