    Martin’s Answer

    Yes you got a DUI. Can you fight it is the question. Most states have an "actual physical control" portion of the statute that covers that as well as driving the vehicle. You should invest in a good local DUI expert to get a good result.

    Martin’s Answer

    The law is if the officer had particularized suspicion to stop you. So, if he suspected your registration was not valid - or if you didn't actually put the new validation sticker on your plate, you may have a tough time. These issues can be worth fighting and every case is different, so look to an experienced DUI attorney to help you out.

    Martin’s Answer

    If you were served and had notice of the hearing and did not attend, you will have a difficult time. However, permanent orders can be undone, but you will likely need a Montana licensed attorney to help you to get into court and get them changed.

    Martin’s Answer

    The reason pay with checks is a bank can track when they were deposited and show you them. Without a receipt that shows the cash was accepted you are going to have a difficult time proving you paid them.
