I have a family member that was in an accident while intoxicated. There was also a fatality at the scene. B.A.C. was taken.
We are assigned a US Attorney(federal land accident). The attorney is free of charge, but we are afraid the attorney will not be able to help like a private attorney. The federal criminal investigator already collected evidence, interviewed witnesses, family members and visited him in the hospital 2 times.
