    I agree with the other attorney's answer but I would like to add something to it. The idea behind PTD is obviously to give first time offenders a break so as not to ruin their lives. Most employers know that and usually chalk a PTD dismissal up to a one time mistake by the prospective hire. That being said, your background search will show that there was a charge and then a "dismissal". Have you considered doing a seal and expunge? If you need help with that please do not hesitate to give...

    The program that you are referring to is the "Back on Track" DUI diversion program available in Miami-Dade County. It is important to note that this program is not automatically offered to every first-time DUI offender. It is offered at the discretion of Assistant State Attorney (the prosecutor) that is assigned to your case. That being said, once the program is offered , it can sometimes be specially tailored by the prosecutor to fit the circumstances of your particular case. This...

    This question cannot be fully answered without doing some research first. The first step should be for you to order your official Florida Driving Record. You can do this online or you can call us or any experienced attorney and we/they can order it for you. Based on what we see on your driving record, we can tell you whether you are or are not eligible for a Florida Hardship license. With a Florida hardship license on hand, at least you have a better shot at being able to drive legally in...

  4. Is it possible to actually get charged with D.U.I. even if I was't drinking or doing drugs?

    The short answer is yes, you can be charged. In Florida, If the officer feels that he can prove you were driving while your "normal faculties were impaired" then, in theory, you could be charged with a DUI. It doesn't matter that all you drank was Nyquil.... The standard may be slightly different in SC but generally States have similar DUI laws. I recommend that you contact and experienced DUI attorney in your area immediately.

    You SHOULD NOT pay either of these citations. Especially the one that belongs to another person. Florida Statute 316.1001 is punishable as a "moving violation"... That means If you pay these citations, you are in essence admitting guilt and you could get points assigned to your license (3 points per ticket). That could add harmful points to your license, it puts you at higher risk of getting a point suspension in the future and your insurance rates may go up. My law firm successfully...

    You have every right to be frustrated. You should hire the best (most talented and experienced) DUI attorney that you can afford.... immediately. If you are looking for a silver lining within your situation it is this: Police Officer's memory erodes over time.... Evidence gets lost or degrades over time... Any qualified DUI attorney that you hire will know how to exploit this delay, to your benefit.

    I would need to know a little bit more info in order to answer your question. What is the specific statute number or local ordinance that you were charged with breaking? Based on your answer it sounds like you accepted a plea offer from the Judge. If you feel that you are innocent, based on the statute's specific language (ie. the law your were charged with breaking) then I recommend you speak to an experienced attorney in your area. you may only have a limited time to file a motion to...

    The legal advice that your require is way more complex than what can be answered via this forum. I highly recommend that you contact an experienced DUI attorney in your area immediately. In Florida, Blood testing results can take a while, so sometimes we file a demand for speedy trial if we feel that the State will not have its blood results ready in time for trial. However, this and other legal techniques are complex and can backfire on you if you don't know what your doing. An experienced...

    You should speak with your attorney and/or your public defender well in advance of going to court and ask them this very question. Ask them if they recommend that you take an anti-shoplifting course on your own or do community service as a pre-emptive move showing good faith and regret to the prosecutor, the grocery store and the Judge. Have you returned or paid for the merchandise? Have you offered to work for free at the grocery store for a day to make amends? Your attorney is in the best...

    Hello, I would like to answer your question but I need to clarify a few things first: Who told you that she has to wait one year... Georgia or Florida? Was your daughter ever designated as a Habitual Traffic Offender in either state? If yes, then your daughter's driver's license may be suspended for up to 5 years. If that is the case then it is possible that the person you spoke with told you it would be one year before she could get a "hardship license" which allows her only to drive...
