I had a DWI driver at 2:30 am that damaged my property, and vehicle (no injuries to myself or family). Now his insurance company does not want to pay me the estimate amount I received for the property damage work. Adjuster says that the estimates are too high. I want to tell the adjuster that when the Police knock on your door at 3;00 am, and you have older children, that your mind wonders if they are injured or dead. I do not like to sue, but if the company keeps messing around for $1,500.00 I will have to make them spend a lot more in Court costs. Is this something that can be pursued in the Court?
Absolutely No Point. Contact the DA who is prosecuting the DUI driver and turn your damages over to him. The judge...
Was visiting Ruidoso, went to eat a burger and fries and had 3 beers during the timeframe of 10:00 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. -- got pulled over for going 40 in a 30 (did not know the speed limit this being first time there), officer proceeded to do sobriety tests and blood test charged me. Girlfriend was also in the vehicle -- she ate/drank everything that I did. I am 5'9 and weigh about 205 lbs. She is 5'2 and weighs about 130 lbs. The officer did one test on her and proceeded to allow her to drive in order to follow as he took me to the ER for a blood test and then to the police department. I do not believe that I was intoxicated and moreso, don't understand how he could think that I was, but yet not think she was looking at her weight and size. Seems a little bogus to me.
You are going to need a New Mexico attorney to represent you on the DWI. It is a fact of life that DWIs in today's...
I was arrested on dui. in 2001 while visiting the state. I went home (out of state) never to return.

I was convicted of dwi first offense in January 2005. My license was revoked for one year but I never obtained an ignition interlock in order to have my license reinstated and it's been revoked ever since. It's been more than 9 years and I have not been convicted of another dwi/dui since. Am I able to just reinstate my license like normal since it's been so long? Thanks
No. The revocation period is a "floating" time period. It will only start when you 1) have an ignition interlock...
Trying to keep him for a month or 2 til he sees the judge won't release him til he sees a judge is that possible?
A judge can impose up to 90 days on a first dwi offense in New Mexico under Nmsa 66-8-102. I would talk to the attorney...
License was revoked in 2007, I want to go to DMV and get my license will an interlock be required since it has been 7 years since I have had the conviction
Your best place to ask this would be at the NM DMV. Generally you cannot just wait out an IID requirement but there may...
Had a 1st offense DUI in PA back in 2007. Accepted into and completed ARD, (Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition), program where the charges are dismissed without a "conviction" or admission of guilt. Arrest record is expunged and only record of violation is on PENNDOT records for enhancing a later DUI charge. There was NO CONVICTION. Moved to NM. MVD said only eligible for interlock license under statute 66-5-5e. It states "(person) who was CONVICTED on or after June 17, 2005 of driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs pursuant to the laws or ordinances of any other state". I plan to challenge the NM MVD because I was NOT convicted of DUI under PA state law. Penndot will send a letter stating that there was NO conviction. Thoughts?
I think.... That it will cost you more money, heartache and misery to fight this than it would be just to get the IID.
