    There are no definite convictions in our court system. Otherwise the officer would be your judge and jury and the court would only sentence you. I have seen many people who blew higher than you acquitted of DWI charges. You should take advantage of free consultations and discuss the complete facts with a skilled and experienced DWI attorney. There may be mistakes with paperwork or testing procedures that an experienced attorney can use to your advantage. I tell prospective clients that if...

    You need to hire an attorney in Cumberland County to handle it for you. The orders for arrest need to be recalled and the cases recalendared.

    Yes you need a lawyer now. Don't speak to anyone about your case, especially an investigator without your attorney.

    This is definitely a landlord-tenant question. From the little that I remember in this area your landlord may have that option but I would definitely consult an attorney who practices in that area.

  5. Is there a statue of limitation on misdemeanor traffic fences?

    Answered 12 months ago.

    No the statute of limitations is from the date of offense until you are formally charged with the offense. If you have charges that are 13 years old, you will need to address those and get them resolved. You should consult an attorney in the county where you were charged. In most cases, an attorney can help you get the charges resolved in a much better way than you can by yourself. Good luck!

    In the long run, what you are attempting to do may cost you more money than hiring a good traffic attorney to handle them for you. Depending on the county, the District Attorney may not want to give you a deal since you have two unrelated incidents that are pending. Another consideration is what will you do in the event that you get another citation for a moving violation. I always try to resolve traffic tickets so that there is wiggle room for future violations. I think you should hire a...

    Yes they can do it and will if the prosecutor believes that the case against you is strong enough to get a conviction. If they charge you hire an attorney.

  8. A cop pulled me over last week and said I was going 81 on a 65 which wasn't true. I argued with him about the citation.

    I know it was the heat of the moment and all but my experience is that for traffic tickets you never benefit by arguing with the officer. The only thing that usually results in is you maybe make one comment that you otherwise might not make. Then the officer writes it down on the original citation with a notation to the District Attorney that you were insulting or difficult. That usually does not help you at all. With that said, the charge can result in a suspension of your license. You may...

    Of course there is a chance. However, it is very very small. First you need to consult with local attorneys to determine the local process for bond reduction hearings and the likelihood that the bond would be lowered. Secondly, you need to hire the best criminal defense attorney that you can afford to attempt it. With all of that said, you need to keep in mind that this is a victim's rights case and a certain amount of weight will be given to the victim's opinion on your release. I think...

    Yes hire an attorney in the Brevard area. A local attorney who deals with the District Attorneys' office in the county where you received the citation usually has a better rapport with the prosecutor or at least knows what to expect. Not all counties handle matters the same so it is important that you go local. Beyond that the attorney can examine your driving history and make a decision about the best solution for your problem. Good luck.
