I got a DUI just as I was moving out of CA to MD. CA suspended my license for 6 Mos but I was eligible for restricted home to work or unrestricted with IID. Court found a comparable AB1353 program but CA would not accept that and MD would not issue license while CA had suspension in place so I have not driven in 5+ months. Coming up on six mos and friend is saying to fill out a CA form DL4006 to surrender it and start all over in Maryland. I hate to give it up without knowing what MD will do but my calls to them never produce a real answer.
Hire an attorney in Maryland who can contact the MVA and figure out this issue. Calling MVA will likely get you no where.
I received a DUI in georgia but I live in DC. I plead nolo contendere, which is essentially a guilty plea. However, in my paperwork from my lawyer it stated "I hereby authorize my attorney to enter a plea of nolo contendere/guilty on my behalf and in my absence to all charges related to the above styled matter and sign any and all necessary document regarding same to an ordinance which will not report on my criminal history." what does this mean? I also paid online for a background check on myself and nothing came up. Please advise.
Ask your lawyer. Or a DUI lawyer barred in GA. A DC lawyer cannot advise as to what GA language means unless that...

Management has been retaliating against me for whistle blowing against one of my supervisors that came to work drunk. I work at night and I called the project manger and he did nothing. My supervisor was yelling at me. He carries a gun and I felt threatened. I went to my doctor for being stressed and he put me on doctors care for 2 weeks thats when my supervisor was going to finally leave. when I came back I was written up for not having enough leave. I went to the union to file a grievance and the union the following week told me that the write-up was taken out of my file. A month later I found out that the write up wasn't taken out of my file. The union lied to me and said that she mis-spoke. Can I file an unfair labor practice against the union for lying to me.

I was previously a DC resident and have an expired DC license which was clean. What will DC require me to do in order to get a drivers license? I have not driven or had a license for the 7/8 year period.
Your first requirement will be to satisfy all the requirements of the State of Maine. States share information on DWI's...
I need to take a Level II "DUI Class" per another state and I can't seem to find any in the DMV area. The only thing I have come across is the MD 12 hour AEP, which doesn't seem to have a second level to it. Any recommendations? Thanks!
You need a 26 hour (typically 26 weeks, one hour per week) program, and there are many to choose from throughout the...
AVVO: Earlier in the year I was charged with a 1st Offense Virginia DWI and Refusal. At the time I was a Virginia licensed driver. However, I recently moved and relicensed in DC. I've retained a Virginia attorney to handle the Virginia criminal matter. The attorney believes my case will most likely end in a Refusal conviction, or possibly a "Wet Reckless." There's also a chance that I will be convicted of both DWI and Refusal. I would like a DC traffic attorney to advise as to what action(s) the DC DMV will take against my license in the event of any of these outcomes. How would Virginia-ordered ASAP/probation be transferred to DC? Are there any other issues facing DC licensed drivers facing similar charges that should be addressed? Finally, could any of this be mitigated by hiring a DC traffic attorney? Best Regards
Generally speaking, if you get a DUI out of state and the state that issue your license finds out about it, there will...
