  • Can my attorney win a DUI less safe? I was also charge with Reckless Driving and Maximum limits(Speeding)

    My BAC was .077%, I was going 95 mph on a 55 mph speed limit highway. I told the officer I have had five beers in the last 5 or 6 hours. I did good in the Field Tests, but refused to say the alphabet which I really do not know even in my own lang...

    William’s Answer

    Yes, your attorney can win your case. He could also lose. You should feel confident in your attorney, since you hired him / her. No attorney wants to go to trial and lose. So the attorney believes in your case if he/ she does decide trial.....or at least, this should be the case.

    William’s Answer

    A pro bono attorney is one who is willing to take your case without payment. There are not many of them around. If you qualify, you can seek defense from a public defender once you apply through the court. Some lawyers here might agree to read the police report / other evidence against you and take your case if they believe in your innocence. Good luck.

    William’s Answer

    You have already been charged. You are wanting to know whether or nor you could be convicted. If you hire an attorney from the WR area, you will likely escape this charge completely.

    William’s Answer

    Yes, it's possible. You have 30 days from receipt of 1205 until your license is suspended UNLESS you mail in the letter requesting an ALS hearing within 10 business days of your receipt.

    Smart idea to hire an attorney, as DUI cases are very technical.

  • Can I legally own a firearm?

    I had a bad conduct discharge from the army in 1998. I served 8 months in county jail. I have gone to different police stations and each station said there was nothing on my records.

    William’s Answer

    Sounds like you don't have any convictions banning you from possessing a gun. Since you live in Georgia, you can even take that gun to church and the local bar!!
