    Without having an opportunity to review the police report submitted in support of the arrest I'm gonna hazard a guess as to what is in the report; "Odor of alcohol emanating from the operator, admission of drinking earlier, failure to perform the field sobriety tests to standard, bloodshot glassy eyes, difficulty producing documents, agreed to take the tests and failed breathalyzer etc. etc. etc.". That being said, you absolutely need to retain an experienced dwi attorney in your are to explore...

If this is your first offense, some jurisictions are offering minors an opportunity to participate in a prgram sponsored by MADD which will result in the charges being dropped upon returning to court with proof of participation in the MAP program. If the prosecutor does not offer the MAP program, ask for a...

    If you own your own business you probably won't qualify for public defender services. You should consult with experienced defense attorneys regarding your options. There are many excellent ones here on AVVO and most offer free consultations. Also, you should be aware that your license will be suspended by the DMV as a result of the arrest, unless you request an appeal of the suspension and have an administrative hearing and you prevail at the hearing. Public defenders do not represent their...

    You are given a public defender usually because you have requested one due to your financial situation. There is no grand conspiracy. Public defenders are dedicated amd skilled advocates who are underpaid AND underappreciated. They work hard for their clients, but if you feel as though there is a conspiracy then put together the necessary finances to hire yourself a private lawyer. If you cannot afford a lawyer of your choice then stop grumbling and appreciate the fact that since Gideon v....
