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 Felony
My fiancé was charged with a felony dui because it was his 4th. However, he was given as part of his punishment so to say that he would have to complete 6 months in an in patient program. We are wondering if there is anything we can do to avoid this since he will loose his job because of this and let's be honest is cutting people off from the ones that love and support them and sticking a bunch of people that have the same issue in a home together a good idea??? But his case was finalized last April and he hasn't had a drink since 2012 when his last dui was. We really need some legal advice and guidance. Thank you for your time.
What you are saying makes little sense. You said that he stopped drinking in 2012....how can that be as he was...
Dui license suspension
DUI license suspension questions. I was convicted of a DUI in January in my personal vehicle. The DMV suspended my license for 6 months then send me a letter to disqualify my commercial class B for 1 year. My questions are 1. When could i start driving my class C regular driving again 2. Will that downgrade my commercial class B license? So how long do I have to wait if I want to receive my commercial license back? Do i have to take the test again 3. do i have to retake the test after 1 year? 4. So if i want my license back right now they will downgrade my class b to class c and if I wait one year i still have to retake the test again. Then what is the difference?
1. It depends. On a DUI there are typically 2 suspensions. One suspension is 6 months from the court conviction, but...
