    Contact an attorney to lift the capias. If you can't afford one contact the judges secretary and ask her to set a court date and explain the situation. You may need to put it in writing and send a copy of the letter to the state attorney as you can not have a conversation with judge without sharing with the state simultaneously so you basically cc the state.

    Look at the Lawyers experience, read reviews and sit down with possible attorneys. Make an informed decision. You want someone who has their wits about them as all lawyers are not created equally. You will see as you meet with them. I recomend you meet with at least three different attorneys. We are available 24/7 so feel free to contact. Best of luck

    There is a case on point. Unless there is an accident the police must see you behind the wheel of the car. If you passed out in store then your fine. Never sleep it off in a car. Even if your not driving but are inside the car with keys the state can prove actual physical control and your sunk. Sleep outside car with your keys or inside car but with keys outside the car.

    Ok. I hear this a lot lately " can you just reduce my charges to a reckless driving?" I often wonder if there was an law and order episode about reducing the charge. The only way the charge gets reduced to a reckless, in my experience and I have a lot in DUI cases, is that there is a Motion to Suppress that has a very good chance of winning. After I file my Motions to Suppress, I usually receive a call from the prosecutor and they are willing to negotiate and reduce the charge. If my...

    Its automatic- nothing is requiered the injunction covers you not a place. Read your paperwork, however you can set a hearing if you want jsut to be sure but its not needed. If you work at a gas station and the person comes in then thats not a violation obviously or a bank unless they have notce. Depends on your job.

    You are no longer eligible for the diversion program so you will need to fight the case otherwise you are likely to get a year of probation. Jail is not likely but depends on prosecutor so hire an attorney to fight the charges by looking for a technical argument

    Don King, the boxing promoter, is famous for saying, "Only in America." Yes, only in America can you sue anybody for anything. Odds of winning are slim to none and the money spent out of your pocket will be a ton. The information on that site is public information and can be disseminated freely. Win your case and have your record expunged. If a Judge expunges your record and they do not wipe the information then you may have a case. Still not likely a profitable case as you would have...
