    Trial counsel's obligation is to your uncle. The rules of attorney/client privilege may preclude him from sharing this information. Ask your uncle.

    Ask your attorney who is familiar with the particular facts of the case. If you don't have one, then I suggest you get one immediately.

    The officer does not need probable cause to stop you because your vehicle is not moving. The officer may testify that he was merely checking on your well being when he approached. The second issue is whether the state can prove operation of your motor vehicle circumstantially based on your sleeping in the drivers' seat with the keys in the ignition. This may be a basis to fight the case. I suggest you consult with a private criminal defense attorney immediately. Good luck.

    There are too many issues, and your question is too complex, to sort this question out online. You can probably subpoena the tapes if relevant, but your first step is going to be to get some legal advice. Schedule a consultation.

    You're looking at five charges and a very serious criminal offense. Forget that you're poor and focus on your future. You got to fight this thing with everything you got. Get the best private lawyer you can find. That's not a knock on the PD. There is just too much at stake to entrust your case with someone who cannot give this matter his/her undivided attention!

    The insurance company will take advantage of your unrepresented status. They will not make a fair offer. You will end up settling for less than if you had a lawyer. It really makes sense to hire a lawyer.

    The state must prove you were in actual physical control of a vehicle during your intoxication. If you drank after you drove, then you have not violated the statute. Consult with an experienced private attorney to prepare your defense.

    These are very serious allegations. File a private complaint with the PA Disciplinary Board. You can file a private criminal complaint with the District Attorney if she/he has in fact assaulted you. Your hesitance to get another attorney is puzzling, since this is a PI case. Somehow I don't think we're getting the whole story here.

    Mr. Lassen provides an excellent response. You are going to have to show the Night Club had some constructive notice of the spill. (e.g., the spill was on the floor for a while, and a reasonable Night Club would have cleaned it up before you slipped on it).
