    Based on the age of the case there will be a court appearance required. The judge will likely inquire what the cause of the delay in resolving the case.

    It is altogether possible that a case as old as ten years can be disposed of without you coming to court. The attorney would need to contact the prosecutor's office to try to find out if the case is still viable. Depending on the prosecutor's investigation then the case can be added to the court's calendar and disposed of. This will take a considerable amount of work and still may necessitate your appearance in court. Good Luck-

    As expected your friend would be facing the original DWI charges. The prosecutor may also have to decide whether to charge bail jumping. Ordinarily bail jumping would not be charged. Good Luck

    In order to change attorneys the judge will have to approve it and appoint 18b. You should inform your current attorney as to your concerns which you can then tell judge that you have done so. In the end, if you do not hire an attorney of your choice the switch will be in the discretion of the judge. Good Luck-

    It is possible that the court tomorrow will know about the warrant. You should try to clear up the warrant if possible before going to the court. If not try to have some additional cash on hand or have someone to call to post the bail on the warrant if it should come up.

    Yes you should consult with an attorney ASAP. Based upon the consultation with the attorney you may or may not meet with the police. I strongly suggest you speak with and hire an attorney in your area as soon as possible and certainly before you meet with the police. Good Luck-

    An attorney has the duty to protect your constitutional rights and to communicate with you in order for you to make informed decisions as your case progresses toward trial. Ultimately as the client you are the one that must decide which direction your case takes. Try to communicate with your attorney so that both of you mutually understand each other and that you fully understand the consequences or your decisions.

    Thank you for sending such a sincere plea for help. The criminal justice system can be overwhelming especially to those going through it for the first time. I am certain that there is a local attorney in the county that this case is pending that will be willing to work on this case and help your friend. I see that your post is from Buffalo, NY so I am assuming that this is a Buffalo case. I hope that you are contacted by a local attorney willing to help. In the meantime if you wish to reach...

    The Municipal Court system in New Jersey entitles everyone that is charged with a traffic infraction to conference their case with the Municipal Court Prosecutor before appearing before the judge. Take advantage of that opportunity and see if you can resolve your case to your satisfaction with the prosecutor.
