    The other AVVO lawyers have expressed what I have said to many people that post questions on AVVO: Your statements on AVVO can amount to incriminating evidence which may be used against you. My hats off to the AVVO lawyers who have said that you should consult privately with your own lawyer at this juncture. We at ABDO LAW are criminal and drunk driving defense lawyers in the Metro Detroit area (Macomb, Oakland, Wayne, St. Clair). I would recommend that you consult with one of the fine...

    You should retain a lawyer in each jurisdiction where these records were created. The lawyer can obtain the court file and file a motion to set aside the conviction (against you) based upon due process/manifest injustice. As another lawyer has mentioned, there will be fingerprints and mugshots which can clarify the issue of identification.

    You said, "fact that I walked through the back yard at Christmas time while we were separated and peeked into the windows and took pictures". In my opinion, this can support a charge of disorderly conduct (peeping tom). Other answers recommend getting a lawyer and so do I! Of course, you do not want a PPO on your record. However, the PPO will expire at some point in time. If you appear at the hearing, you may incriminate yourself by testifying which could lead to other criminal charges. You...

    I agree with our other AVVO attorneys who say the failed test may be your demise on this one. But if you are moving for school or employment, that might fly coupled with your good attitude and otherwise compliant conduct. Even if you move, the court might still want you to test and send the results to the probation department. When our firm files a motion to terminate probation, we look for 100% compliance. A judge may consider terminating probation, reducing random testing or modify...

    Your prior misdemeanors which were dismissed will remain available for the court to view. Still, a first time DUI is usually manageable. You should be eligible for a plea bargain to "impaired driving" since this is a first time DUI, your breath test is below the super drunk range and I assume that there were no injuries or accident. Do not hesitate to request a court appointed attorney to advise you in more detail. ABDO LAW Phone 586-412-5555 DUI AND CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYERS

    You are doing the right thing by trying to avoid points. Points cause your insurance premiums to sky-rocket. You will want to contact an attorney for representation. Michigan has a couple of civil infractions on the books which do not appear on your record and do not carry points. Our firm has negotiated to have traffic tickets which carry points to non-point violations such as impeding traffic, blocking traffic or double parking. The court may still get you for fines and costs with these...

    In my opinion, you dodged one. The legal limit for drunk driving (DUI, OWI) is .08%. Your preliminary breath test (PBT) was just over the limit. I doubt you will hear anything more about this case since you were not arrested, given a chemical test such as a breathalyzer and given the opportunity to take a second test of your own choice. Perhaps the cop got another call for a police run or he was looking for something else when he pulled you over like drug activity. Anyway, you are...

    It sounds like your question is about a license restoration. If not, please re-post and I will respond again if I can help. If your second DUI was in 2001 and it it was your second offense within 7 years, your license is revoked INDEFINITELY. However, you probably had a 1 year revocation and could have appealed to the Driver License Appeal Division after 1 year. Your revocation period is extended each time you get a ticket while you are revoked which can put off your eligible hearing date for...
