    I'm pretty sure this section is for the purpose of asking a "lawyer." Not your mother, college roommate, or buddy. As I would tell my students, "Google is your friend." From the perspective of a lawyer, I'll tell you exactly what I tell clients: Maybe the best thing for you is to be afraid of getting caught with alcohol in your system. 1 = If you're restricted from drinking, + 1 = And you wind up drinking anyway, - 2 = You probably have a bigger problem out there you need to take care of....

    Can you represent yourself-yes. Should you represent yourself-absolutely not. You need to be more realistic about this charge. When you say that you don't want to charge to be on your record, but you want to represent yourself. To a practitioner who has spent his life handling these type of cases this sounds close to asking, "can I perform surgery on myself without any experience and do it perfectly?" So to answer your question I'm sure you could do it yourself, but that doesn't make it a...

    Depending on the type of violation I would say typically, yes. This is possible through what is called the interstate compact laws. Each state has agreements within another to uphold their agreement. But you can look back to a prior question I answered on probation where I discussed how it is a contract between you and the Judge. Part of the contract says you can't leave the state. So that is why YOU MUST ask for permission to leave the state. Don't simply leave. Many of my clients have...

    You are correct that they will dig deep Schools have to under the regulations placed on them. Many of my clients mistake that they only have one background. Think of two filing cabinets, one has all of your criminal background. The other has your entire traffic background. A DUI, if it is a misdemeanor and you did not go to jail, will be in the traffic filing cabinet. The criminal background is available through the Illinois State police, the traffic background is available through the Illinois...

    Assuming that your case is a misdemeanor, the worst you can receive is $2500..00 fine and 364 days in jail. The problem with back child support and unpaid fines are that you will be able to make a payment plan, however the suspension will not come off your record until everything is paid off.

    You say it should be dismissed. The state says the opposite. Sometimes trial is the only way to figure out who's right. Get a lawyer. Vijay R. Sharma, President, The Law Office of Vijay R.

    There is some information missing, but I'll err on the side of too much rather than too little information. I will assume there is no injury or death The first DUI is a Class A Misdemeanor punishable by: -364 days in jail, or up to two years of Court Supervision, -As well as fines, fees, and court costs up to $2500. -If a BAC is above a 0.16, 100 hours of mandatory community service and a mandatory minimum fine of $500 is added on to the above. -If the driver does not have insurance...

    The first question is whether a court appearance is mandatory or not. If a court appearance is mandatory, it is possible in some courts to get 2 supervisions back to back. If a court appearance is not mandatory, then you should have the option for traffic safety school. However, they may simply mark it as a conviction if you mail it in. You have a greater chance of getting supervision in front of a Judge. Be warned that if you're under the age of 21, two moving violations within a two-...

    It seems like a convenient type of way for the police to arrest you, wouldn't it? A police officer wanted one of my clients to walk in to "pick something up." I told him to give the officer my phone number and that I would speak to the officer from now on. The officer told me the same thing, but insisted that my client show up. I told him that I can speak and act for my client so I'll pick it up. The officer seemed disappointed, I think you can draw your own, very obvious, conclusion why....
