    He needs to talk to a personal injury attorney. They should consult with him for free. If it was a house party, he may be able to go after their insurance company. Might. Further, if he is under his family's home owner policy, he may be covered. Charges can also be filed against the other suspects, if known, and they can be sued personally or he might be able to recover the money through restitution after the criminal case. Best of Luck.

    You need to talk to a DUI/Crim attorney. The officer is going to say that it was a consensual encounter, but if you have witnesses that can testify that you were commanded to pull over, then you may have been illegally detained. But then again, you may have had a front light out to give him a reason to detain you. You may have a shot but you need to be honest with your family so they can help you retain counsel.

    A DUI is a serious matter with long-lasting consequences. You should retain an attorney regardless of how good of a defense you (may) have so that you are properly represented in Court. Further, be careful posting specific information about your case on a public forum.

    No you will not get an infraction for blowing a .12 and a .18. It will be hard to even get that reduced to a "wet reckless". You need to talk to a DUI attorney in your area as he may have the local connections that may work in your favor. If you move an inch, its a DUI.

    A motion can be filed for anything. Will it be granted? 1.) You need to be talking to whoever is your Defense attorney, 2.) Unless you have an expert witness that has the credentials to state that a cell phone would cause significant interference when in the proximity of a datamaster, then no. Further, would you even know how to lay the foundation so that such a person could testify? Contact a local DUI attorney. These things have long-lasting consequences and should not be handled on your...

    Generally if the officers received a specific call about a drunk driver, yes it should be in the report. However, it may not be in the report if they did not get the call and they actually did see you swerve. On the other hand, I have read many, many, many false police reports. Please get a DUI/Crim attorney.

    Did you call the police? Why not? Contact a local attorney. You may have a credible defense with these facts. If you represent yourself, those are the questions the judge will ask.
