    Your focus aught to be on NOT incriminating yourself and NOT providing fodder for the State Attorney (who apparently intends to lock you up... again) by publically posting information about yourself or your case. My advise is for you to get OFF-LINE and into an experienced Broward County criminal defense lawyers office. If you cannot afford to retain private counsel then delete this post, zip your mouth, tie your fingers and wait until you are appointed counsel with whom you can...

    It seems as though you are attempting to make your previously posted (and answered) question a little clearer. Like I explained before, your case cannot have been expunged unless you assisted your lawyer to do so. At least 3 notarized signatures from you were required, as well as going and getting a new fingerprint card to submit together with your application (and money order). With those indisputable facts it is not possible for your lawyer to have done this without your knowledge and...

    As sentencing is a VERY complicated issue in Florida this is, by default, a complicated question. Rather than typing chapter and verse here and now I will ask that you take the time to read my Avvo Legal Guide on Sentencing in Florida. It is chock full of relevant information and sources and will provide you with a detailed (and hopefully easy to grasp) understanding of this complex area of the law. For your convenience the link follows: Please see: see: http://www.avvo.com/legal-...

  4. If a d.u.i case is won on the criminal side of the spectrum, dose the d.m.v has the power to invalidate license ??

    Both of my colleagues are correct. DMV-BAR is not court (unless you want to argue that its a Kangaroo Court) and the rules of evidence do not apply at DMV-BAR hearings. It is not a constitutional arena and you are not dealing with rights; rather it is an administrative arena which focuses on privileges (thus, due process applies, but man-o-man is it ever limited in scope). And, just like with Las Vegas, what happens at DMV-BAR stays at DMV-BAR (that is to say that winning or losing at DMV-...

    You are well-advised to physically sit down with a lawyer and discuss the facts and circumstances of your case with an eye toward the various possible courses of action and outcomes. My office is in Miami, 3 blocks west of the Marlins' Stadium (the old Orange Bowl site), and you are welcome to make an appointment and come in for such a consultation. As every case and client are unique, I do not quote fees based upon charges; rather, in my practice fees are quoted based upon the amount of...

    Lawyers are licensed (in FL anyhow) to practice law. They are not restricted as to any particular area of the law by the Bar, only by their own decision and respect for their own limitations. For example, I am a criminal defense lawyer and do not engage in practicing any other legal work whatsoever. I can, technically, but I do not. Why? Because not withstanding 22 years of litigation experience it would be malpractice for me to take on a transactional real estate matter (I get hives just...

    Respectfully, your question is complicated, cryptic and lacking in sufficient detail to give you a case specific answer. The generic rule for VOP's is that you can be violated for any act (or proscribed omission) that you are alleged to have committed during the time that you were on probation. If you are noticed of an impending arrest while on probation, but the facts and circumstances which led to the arrest preceded the probationary term, then you cannot be violated for it even though...

    Unless he's a really bad guy (not your average probationer) then odds are that your brother will face the music if and when he gets caught. As for you, can you be charged with a crime for essentially aiding and abetting your brother's continuing probation violation? Conceptually, yes you can. Several misdemeanors come to mind. My advise: Don't rat out your brother but you also don't need to be lying for him.

    You've detailed a fine question; sadly you've posted it in a forum where you are extremely unlikely to get a competent answer. I am a criminal lawyer (as will be the vast majority of attorneys who see your question as posted) and you really should address this issue with an immigration lawyer, so I suggest that you remove and repost this question. When you do so you should not identify "criminal defense" as a practice area as yours is not a criminal defense question. Instead you...

    You buddy can do what ever he chooses, and no matter what here will be consequences for his choice. He can tell the truth and face the fire or he can lie and run the risk of being caught. Your buddy should run this by an employment lawyer but I think that he will get the same advise that I just gave. Florida is an "at will" employment state. Unless you have an employment contract which delineates procedures then he can be fired at any time and for any reason, provided it is not an...
