I was pulled over for suspicion of DUI on Ventura Blvd. in Studio City...
After quickly retrieving my license and registration, being polite to the officer and completing a "follow the finger" fst on the sidewalk the officer said to return to my car. He then told me I was free to go. Am I completely in the clear? (No breath test was given at all.)
No arrest. No snaching of your license. You are safe.
First time DUI with accident and property damage. What are my options?
I got into an accident on Sunday, making a left turn onto a freeway ramp and hitting a freeway sign and fence. While the tow truck was removing my car, a CHP pulled up and gave me a field sobriety test after asking if I had been drinking that night. (I told them I had, but not for over 2 hours). I blew over the .08 limit and was arrested. I blew under the limit at the courthouse when booked, and thus my license wasn't relinquished. After a night in jail and dealing with the accident itself, I am looking into legal representation. What are the possible enhancements with this charge (because of the accident) and what should I be looking for in order to not have this momentary lapse in judgement affect my long term job and employment opportunities? (I am a working actor in Los Angel
Please contact an experienced DUI attorney immediately. This is a serious charge and you need aggressive...

Do I have grounds to report the attorney I hired for my DUI case or get my money back?
I hired a lawyer (and paid a lot of money) to have him represent me in my DUI case. I have a fulltime job and have to leave the country soon so I hired him to be my representative in all matters of my DUI case. After the initial court date (where all he did was plead guilty) he refuses to go to the courthouse anymore to hand in my proof of completion documents, etc stating that its not his problem anymore. He's also extremely rude when we are communicating and says that I need to work around his schedule - he pretty much treats me as if I am employed by him rather than the other way around.
I'm not really certain this attorney did anything which warrants you getting your money back. I'd imagine you signed a...

DUI and house arrest
I had a DUI eight years ago. I recently got a DUI and I have been told by the District's Attorney that I face jail time. I have a job and wish to continue to work and also begin attending AA meetings. Would requesting house arrest be appropriate in my situation, given that I had a DUI 8 years ago?
Sure, that's an appropriate request, but one that's best made by your lawyer. Don't try to do this yourself. Retain...
