    Generally, the crime has to be considered a "crime of moral terpitude". Seeing as each state has their own criminal code, they sorta define all crimes a little differently. As such, the test the Feds use to make that determination can yield some surprising results. Some felonies will not subject you to deportation while some misdemeanors will. But, as others have said, this is more of a question for an immigration attorney than a criminal defense attorney. The immigration attorney can then...

    Your father's current attorney will probably put a lien on the case no matter what. And yes, the possibility exists that he will inflate his fees. These fees can be disputed and settled for pennies on the dollar (just like medical liens) by a competent (new) attorney. It's better to get out now than to wait for the fees to continue to accumulate. Get with your father and get a plan together.

    Well, any attorney worth his or her salt is going to want an opportunity to "fix" whatever it is that's troubling you about their representation. I guess the question is, are you interested in fixing your relationship with your current attorney or do you think the relationship is beyond repair? That should guide your decision on how to go about severing the relationship.

    If probation has any reason to believe you've violated the terms of your probation, they can seek a warrant for your arrest. Once the warrant issues, the clock on your probation stops ticking until the warrant is served and you are arrested. So, while in this treatment program, your probation officer could have already sworn-out a warrant for your arrest and you won't be getting credit toward your sentence while in treatment. The only way to know (without tipping off your probation officer) is...

    While I agree with the "MADD" answer, that's only the obvious culprit. The not-so-obvious ones are all the people who financially benefit from changes in the law an regulations which require greater burdens on anyone convicted of the offense. This includes (but is not limited to): the mental health lobby which makes a fortune off the drug/alcohol evaluations, the testing labs which make money off screening you repeatedly, the private probation lobby which makes a fortune off of "supervising"...

    There are a lot of questions any attorney could ask you about your scenario before giving you an answer. First off, it sounds as though the insurance company may be tendering their policy limit. In which case, you really don't have much option but to take it, give them their limited release, and look for another source of funds. The decision to sue (or not to sue) will come when an insurance company decides not to tender their policy limit following a demand letter.

    Well it sounds like you had some real bullies show up to the scene of your accident. The circumstances under which you were subjected to a field sobriety test sound downright awful and, whether or not they're on video, will hopefully outrage any jury. Making it past the DDS hearing unscathed is a good start, but you'll probably need representation for the actual criminal charge regardless.

    If it's a DUI case, it'll probably be in the State Court of whatever county the arrest was in. You should call the Clerk of State Court and ask about pending cases in the person's last name. Some clerks have websites where you may be able to access that information. After that, if you'd like to call the Solicitor's Office for that county, they may be able to tell you which Assistant Solicitor is assigned to that case. He/She may or may not have time to speak with you.
