    There are a dozen different reasons why you should hire an attorney in this case. Most offer a free consultation. Meet with several and get different opinions from them. Decide which one you like because you will be investing money in their opinion.

    You should hire a qualified DUI expert to help you with your case. Any time you want to mount a technical attack as opposed to a factual attack, you better have someone by your side who knows more than the cop, the prosecutor, and the judge. Our office can handle just such a defense, as can several of the other attorneys who are likely to respond to this post. Be sure to interview several and hire someone you feel comfortable representing you.

    There may be an error in your history. Ultimately the solicitor will pull your official driving history as part of the process. You may want to go obtain a copy now, so that if there are any errors you can begin working towards a correction now.

    It sounds as though you have a very complex case, the kind that are nearly impossible to answer in these small spaces. Most of the lawyers here offer free consultations to evaluate your case in person. I would suggest you look through some of the profiles and choose a few you are comfortable with and talk to them in person. You clearly need the help of an attorney. You must file your claim within one year of your accident, so don't wait!

    Yes, he will look at it. From a sentencing standpoint, you would still be looking at your 1st DUI. You should hire a lawyer immediately. You will not be given any benefits if you go by yourself. Only a qualified and experienced attorney can give you any insight into how you should proceed with your case.

    He has to read from a GA implied consent card that he will read in a plain monotone voice. You might have missed it. The only way to know is to obtain a copy of the video and see what it shows. I recommend you retain an experienced DUI attorney immediately.

    No. You will be deemed a habitual violator. There was a change in the law this year to allow a permit for second DUI convictions, but you will have a hard suspension on your third conviction.

    Only if you filed a claim within one year of the date of accident. If you haven't filed anything yet with the State Board of Workers Compensation the Statute of Limitations would prevent you from filing a claim now. I would recommend you speak to an experienced comp attorney to evaluate your case in person. We provide free consultations and would be happy to go over your case with you.

    Lawyers are a lot like cars. You can get a practical Honda civic all the way up to a Bugatti. Most will get you where you need to go and both can have mechanical issues and break down. The more experienced attorney is a more finely tuned machine and is more reliable. Every case has a chance of winning and you increase your chance of winning with a better, more experienced attorney. You pay for time on a case, not results. If you have the money for a trial, you should hire an experienced...

    Just in case you may have used one term thinking it meant something else, I would just add that you are eligible for a "certificate of first conviction" which allows you to obtain a limited driving permit. First offender status is reserved for felonies and misdemeanor drug charges.
