    There are many factors that can go into setting up a trial date including the judge's calendar, the jury pool availability and whether either side has had good reason for a postponement. You should discuss this with your attorney and question them as to whether the right to a speedy trial has been violated. Also, what they think the delay is about.

    You should definitely pick up the misdemeanor warrant, but prior to that you should obtain an attorney familiar with DWI cases. Do not make any statements to the police about the accident or anything without your attorney present.

    No one can answer what a judge will do in any circumstance, however any judge will pay attention to all the information before them. You should discuss this with your attorney.

    You definitely need a criminal defense for serious charges like this. There may well be evidence that the prosecution has that you don't know about yet.

    If the facts are as you stated, you might get the whole thing dismissed without going for an ACD. You should really speak with an attorney or tell the court that you cannot afford one.

  6. Got caught shoplifting at K-mart and got a letter from their lawyers asking for over $100. What should I do to reduce fine?

    If there was no police involvement and you did not have a charge of shoplifting, this is not a fine. This is the company trying to ask for money and the advice most often given by us here on AVVO is to ignore the claim. They will not pursue it.

    Legal Aid attorneys carry a very large caseload so I would assume time is more an issue than a problem with your case. Try to contact him.

    Your attorney should be the person you talk to about this. They will be doing the negotiation, if any.

    Your friend should consult with a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible . Then he should deal with the warrant because as stated it will not go away and the court will be more favorable if he deals with it rather than being arrested.

    You need to hire an attorney to defend you on the domestic abuse charge, if you were arrested and charged with that. You should also talk to perhaps a civil attorney with relation to the automobile and whose name is on the title to the car with intention of getting it back.
