Roscoe Law

I got my car stuck in a ditch and I had to ditch my car because I had a few drinks before the happening. It was towed to a storage and towing facility.
It is possible that you may face charges of leaving the scene of an accident, if you admit to driving, but that is...
I have not been convicted. I'm still in a discovery stage of it with my attorney. Just curious if it will show up on my background check considering I have not been convicted.
It should show up that you have been "charged". It should not show up in a check for convictions. The type of record...
I was in a wreck in 2008, which resulted in 2 back surgeries, and knee surgery, so I was prescribed pain medication for a few years. After all surgeries, and pain management, I was put on Buprenorphine, to help body adjust, and also for acute back pain management. Every Rx I've had, were 100% legitimate. I was arrested for a 2nd DWI in 2013, my first DWI was in 2002. My probation officer wants a letter from my doctor explaining the need to be on this medication, and my PO said she wants to make a plan to get me off of this medication. I've have several UA's, and all were 100% clean. So I don't understand what the problem is. If it doesn't fail any of the "testing for" medications/substances, why is it an issue?

It's up to you. Do you want a lawyer who has time to speak to you and spend time on your case? Hire a lawyer. If you...
Got a DWI July 2012 and was found guilty in May 2013. The state I received the DWI in was NJ. Will be moving to Texas in 2016. Since NJ only reports the DWI as an infraction on your license (it is not a misdemeanor or a felony), how will this transfer to Texas that reports it as a misdemeanor? Will I receive a "NEW" misdemeanor? It would be best if a lawyer who is from NJ/TX or has experience with either state's DMV answer this question.
As long as your license is clear you should have no problem getting a Texas license. A criminal background check will...
My case keeps getting pushed back. I of course would like to come to some form of closure but also have heard if its not presented by a certain point it goes away.
Absent speedy trial issues, there is no set time period to close out a DWI case. Attorneys often drag these cases out...
