    As a writer who occasionally runs into a struggle to find the right word to adequately convey what's in my head, I have a lot of respect for the importance of word choice. The search for the right word can sometimes involve the good ol' thesaurus or dictionary, or a walk around the newsroom to pick the brains of other word people.

Springdale Law

Will a 4 year-old DWI-1 show up on 3 year MVR (for employment purposes) performed by a third-party vendor?
My employer is running a Driving History Report through a 3rd party vendor (IIX). According to their website, they may only legally look back 3 years. I have run an insurance and commercial traffic violations check through the DFA website, and both have come back clean. It is my understanding that a DWI will not show up on a 3 year driver history, just as it has not shown up on my personal checks. However, my employer has said that sometimes old DWIs show up anyway, even beyond the 3 years. The employer is aware of my driving history, but I can't drive for the company until my MVR no longer shows the DWI. We haven't run it since last year, when it most certainly showed up (within the 3 years).
If they are definitely only looking back 3 years, and the conviction was more than 4 years ago, it should not show up....
My girlfriend and i were in a car wreck caused by a drunk driver. no injury. i owe more than what the car is worth...now what?
the driver hit another vehicle before mine. my girlfriend is considering going to chiropractor. no blood just soreness.?
You will only receive the fair market value for your car, not what you owe (unless you have gap insurance). It appears...
When will we hear about possible dui?
My son was slightly injured in a one vehicle accident in May. Unfortunately, his passenger did not make it. Lab work was taken for possible dui and he was briefly questioned in the hospital. We have yet to hear anything from law enforcement and my son still has his license. What do we do?
Sometimes it can take several months before the lab results come back from the crime lab. Your son needs to consult...
Do I need an attorney for an MIP in Benton Country in the state of Araknsas to get it off my record?
I have had only 1 speeding ticket prior to this ticket and no other legal trouble.
Probably. Depending on which court you're charged in (there are numerous, both big and small) and which agency arrested...
Can I be arrested at the motorcycle test
I had old warrents from years ago then I moved back & got pulled over & I got arrested for them since then I've paid what I could on them I think I have warrents out but need my license to make it too work
If you have warrants, any agency that sees them can have you arrested.
Would out-of-state DWI/DUIs count towards the number of offenses in a new state? Specifically from GA to AR.
I have a valid out-of-state license which was suspended for not submitting to the field sobriety tests. I requested a blood test be administered, but the officer charged me with refusing the BAC tests entirely. I am curious this will be treated as a first offense DUI in Arkansas. The Georgia offense occurred 4-5 years ago.
You are giving some mixed information here. Are you asking specifically about a prior DWI conviction or a prior refusal...
Possible outcomes for DWI and Endangering a minor in the 2nd degree?
My not so intellegent husband was pulled over for DWI and had my 5 year old in the car. His BAC was 0.12%. They arrested him for DWI and Endangering the Welfare of a Minor 2nd. Does he need an attorney for this? He is obviously guilty so should he just plead guilty? What are the possible outcomes for him? Also, he had 2 DWI's 13 years ago, and a Domestic Battery in the 3rd charge 2 years ago that resulted in 4 days jail time.
He absolutely needs an attorney and right away. I would contact an attorney in your area that has a lot of experience...
