    Agreed, contact an attorney immediately. Many of my colleagues on Avvo can be of great assistance to you, but you do not want to discuss the facts on the website.

    Yes, this case can, and should be, fought. There are several ways to attack a DWI charge and an experienced attorney can greatly increase your chances in court. Don't try to go at it alone. Remember, you can also challenge the license revocation, but only have 30 to properly file and serve the paperwork. I hope you find this information helpful and I wish you the best of luck.

    Yes, you can certainly fight this charge. As my colleague points out, self defense immediately jumps out as a viable defense. I suggest you contact an experience defense attorney to discuss the specifics of this case. There may be several options as to how to resolve this case, and in the ideal situation you could do so without a conviction ending up on your record. Also, I would advise you to no longer post any specific facts about your case online. These posts are not protected and you...

    Best thing to do is hire an attorney. Sounds like there may be some good defenses to this case. Also, an attorney should be able to negotiate a favorable resolution, which doesn't result in a conviction.

    You certainly have a defense if all the alcohol was consumed after you drive. It would be in your best interest now to retain an attorney who will fight for you and your rights in the courtroom. Also, a cautionary piece of advice, do not post specific facts of the case online. These posts are not protected and you don't want something you typed to be used against you down the road. I hope you find this information helpful and I wish you the best of luck.

    If this person has been charged with CSC, then he needs to discuss this in private with an experienced criminal defense attorney. This is a very serious charge and can not be taken lightly.

    It will likely be 1 - 2 months, depending on how backed up they are at the testing lab. Depending on the results, you can expect to receive a Summons and Complaint in the mail.

    Yes, you should request a court date and not pay the ticket. You may have a chance at meeting your goal without an attorney. You can always schedule an appointment with a hearing officer and hopefully get a continuance for dismissal. If they don't offer that then you can set it for court and retain an attorney.

    You do have a chance to keep a conviction off your record, although it's not guaranteed. What is guaranteed is that if you don't fight it, you won't win (and will be convicted).
