    If you are insured in a different state than Washington, the laws (and the likelihood of a DUI crashing your insurance rates or cancelling your policy) may vary. In South Carolina, every "moving" violation gets reported to the Department of Public Safety. By law, every reported violation is also reported to the Insurance company with whom you are insured in that state. This automatically increases your insurance bill.This system of immediate reporting is called an "integrated" system....

    Sometimes people who get arrested confuse some issues relating to "arrest". For example, if you have already admitted facts sufficient to provide legal cause for your arrest, and the officer has captured that information on video tape or DVD, or via a back-up officer, the officer engaging in the search may not ANNOUNCE (verbally) that you are being arrested or put cuffs on your wrists. However, through conduct or actions by the officer, that conclusion is apparent (e.g., the officer tells you...

    Most states now prohibit expungement of a DUI-DWI. For over two decades, the federal agency most involved with highway traffic safety, NHTSA, has pushed states to NEVER expunge an impaired driving conviction. The best solution is to FIGHT the case, because 100% of those who PLEAD guilty are FOUND guilty. Any experienced DUI trial attorney can beat those odds!

    I have won over 60 trials with cases having higher breath or blood tests than a 0.21. Sometimes a SUPER HIGH reading is contradicted by the evidence (this is called a "disconnect" - a description coined by one of America's top pharmacologists, Dr. Fran Gengo) and an expert can pint to the impossibility of such a high reading when the person displays no physical mannerisms or behavior consistent with an aclohol reading that should be profoundly impairing the arrested person. See this outline...

    Another consequence for most second LIFETIME offenders is the mandatory restriction on your ability to leave the state of your conviction during any period of probation, absent completion of some elaborate applications and forms required by the "interstate Compact". A creature of federal law, this "Compact" has been signed by virtually all states, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia, and restricts travel or relocation from the state that has a repeat DUI offender under...

    You may have a means of getting a judge to act on the sentencing, but it involves filing a petition in court to set in motion the steps required to reach a conclusion of the case. For some citizens (e.g., one who wants to join a branch of the military and will not be accepted until the case is totally concluded and all probation ended), this may be an avenue that you desire to take. Speak with your attorney about the wisdom of that, since the lawsuit is basically a petition against the court (...

    You should get a private specialist in DUI-DWI defense. It is best to look in the closest town of any significant size adjacent to the base. The reason for this is that the local attorneys typically have built a rapport with the prosecutors who are assigned to these courts, and have the best chance of finding a decent outcome for you. Don't merely go off a recommendation of a friend of a friend -- research who has the best reputation fo fighting these cases. In today's militarty, a...

    You have a GREAT case, in my opinion. Your best issues are (1) the police coming to your house, likely without a warrant, and rousting you out of bed to make their arrest. Unless you ADMITTED to driving AFTER consuming alcohol, then the State's evidence against you for impaired driving is very questionable; (2) an alleged BOLO caller (be-on-the-look-out) who says he or she SAW you driving cannot [from merely seeing the driving occur] testify about whether or not you even had alcohol on your...

    I was uncertain about WHICH breath test you were referring to in this case. If it was the roadside, preliminary breath test (which is an optional "field sobriety evaluation" in most jurisdictions) your son may have had the right to DECLINE that evaluation. If your attorney filed a motion to suppress (exclude) that screening test, and the trial judge agreed that the evaluation was coerced (i.e., your son was given no option by police but to blow into the device on a VOLUNTARY evaluation that...

    Because current Internet and computer technology allows an employer to pay for background information, your "record" is generally open for investigation. Any false statements made by you on the application can be grounds for immediate discharge from your employment. I always advise accused prospective clients of this "lifetime" issue of dealing with a conviction in encouraging them to fight charges that can be won. To quote a famous Minnesota attorney, Don Nichols, "One hundred percent of...
