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...
I got a dui 7 years ago in califorina
I had a misdemeanor dui when I was 20. My licence was suspended for a year. I paid all fines but did not enroll in the dui classes. About a year ago I went to talk to court because I had a warrant out for my arrest because the dui classes were court ordered and it became a probation violation. The warrant is taken care of now. I now live in Oregon and my question is can I just go get a drivers licence (redo the testing and everything) or do I still have to complete the dui classes?
I would start with the easiest approach, namely call dmv and ask if you can get s license. They can look you up and...
7 years ago I was arrested for DUI and I didn't do diversion. I just got pulled over for speeding and arrested. What to expect?
I received the DUI 7 years ago blowing a .19. I did all the judge ordered besides the diversion. The # they gave me to call for it never once got an answer or voicemail so I called the police station and they gave me a different # and that number didn't work either, so being a stupid 23 year old I said screw it and didn't pursue it further. Now 7 years later I got pulled over for speeding and was arrested for a warrant. What I was charged with was FTA, I never once got anything in the mail or anything and have been pulled over in that city since the DUI and nothing. Im not trying to pass the blame, I understand it was my poor choices that have got me here. I have nothing else on my record and am just curious what I should expect and an idea of the best case scenario as far as punishment.
First, FTA (Failure to Appear) as a crime requires that one KNOWINGLY fail to appear for a court date. If you didn't...
Will my DUI/DUII be revoked? What can I do to fight it?
I was placed in the DUI/DUII diversion program in Clackamas county by circuit Judge Susie L Norby. Sometime ago, I finally got my license back, got my SR-22 filed, and an IID (SmartStart) breathalyzer installed in my vehicle. My first report went to my monitoring authority (Pioneer Drug and Alcohol Evaluation Services/PADES). I heard from a counselor in my treatment program that the report showed my IID being "unplugged or something". PADES filed to have my diversion revoked. I have spoken with several representatives from SmartStart and the code was "Power Fail" which means my battery dropped under a certain voltage. SmartStart says if I tampered with the device like PADES claims, it would read "Circumvention". How do I prove my innocence?
You'll receive notice from the court to show cause why your diversion should not be revoked. At the hearing you're...
I have a Dui in California but moved out of state is there a way to get my license back
In 2012 I got a Dui I didn't complete the program. I moved to Oregon and will not be returning to California because I received my 2nd strike in 2013. Is there a way I can get my license back without going back to California.
