What steps should I take
I was recently charged with a dui. I just received a letter from the DMV that they are not suspending my license. Due to the fact that on the ticket the officer did not check a box if I passed, failed or denied the breath test. My ticket also doesn't show my blood alcohol level. Not sure what I should do next.
You should immediately set an office conference with a well-respected DUII lawyer. The initial conference is often free,...

How far off can a breathalyzer be?
Hi, I was recently pulled over and had a breathalyzer test, I came out .08 bac. Now on the sheet it has a control sample that came out .08 and the expected value was a .085, basically saying the machine was off by .005, do you think that would hold up in court?
That's actually an acceptable number for the control and doesn't mean the machine was off. It actually, weird as it may...

DUI conviction in Illinois over 10 years ago.
How long can a DUI be held against me from another state? I have been denied getting my license back twice now from Illinois even after seeing evaluators and treatment specialists, and providing all documentation. The reasons it was denied seem to be ludicrous (IE "petitioner does not understand full ramifications of the conviction") what should me next steps be? Can an Oregon attorney help or would I need to get one licensed in Illinois?
In order to get an Oregon driver's license, you will need to clear your status in Illinois and be eligible for...

I'm a Oregon division until end of year about Interlock device
I received a 0.6 in Oregon in December of last year. I have a California license. I have completed my classes. All I have now is to pay court costs and cost of Interlock until end of year. But CA DMV is clear. No notice of arrest; diversion; or interlock system. If I removed interlock from my car or rental car and stay out of Oregon, how would police know? The CA DMV says that Oregon DMV may not even report this to I am out of diversion completly in case I flunk diversion. We don't have diversion in CA. I not even a duii; in CA, I'm a wet reckless. I recently got pulled over in a rental by CHP and that had no notice from my CA driver's license that I was on diversion. This is a hypothetical question only, of course.
I do not follow your question. You may want to rephrase it. If you are told that the CA DMV may receive notice from...
