    I agree with the other two attorneys' answers -- Your brother-in-law definitely needs to hire a lawyer to help him, and you are not hearing the entire story from him (perhaps he just doesn't know why his license was suspended or what he has to do to get it reinstated.) The $5,000 fee sounds like a typical price quoted by DUI lawyers as an initial down payment to get started defending someone with a DUI who has had prior DUIs. The fines will not be reduced. When you hire a lawyer to...

    Judges don't read letters sent to them by defendants, and they don't have time to listen to a defendant tell his or her personal story in court. Tell your story to your attorney. It's up to your attorney to present your case in the appropriate way to most adequately represent you in court.

    There is nothing you can do. You can't get your felony DWI conviction reduced to a misdemeanor at this point.

    Only an attorney who is familiar with all of the details of your case can advise you regarding whether to accept this plea bargain deal. If you plead not guilty and go to trial, you risk being found guilty and sentenced for the felony charge. If you accept the deal and successfully complete probation without any violations, your case will be closed and there will be no conviction on your criminal record. If you are considering going to trial, you need to consult a trial attorney who can...

  5. I have til Monday the 16th to complete 80 hours of community service. I've already completed 69 hours.

    I agree with Mr. Fry -- either have your attorney contact the court to get a continuance to give you more time to complete the community service hours, or contact the court clerk yourself. In some courts, they will not grant a continuance and you would be required to appear in court to explain to the judge why you didn't complete the required community service hours in the allotted time. If you do nothing, your probation is in danger of being revoked, you will have a conviction on your...

    I don't know what the conditions of your probation are, but you may be required to report any new traffic violation. If you don't report it to your probation officer, she will eventually find out and you will look bad for not reporting it. It's possible that only an alcohol-related offense would be considered a probation violation.

    Send a letter to the attorney telling her you are firing her. Send it "certified mail" so you get a receipt showing that she received it. Once your attorney knows that you are firing her, she must file a motion to withdraw from representing you. A new lawyer can't get involved in representing you on these cases if the old lawyer hasn't withdrawn.

    1) In Missouri, depending on which court this is being prosecuted in, your attorney may be able to negotiate a plea-bargain deal with the prosecutor to get a misdemeanor drug possession charge reduced to "Littering." In other courts where the prosecutors are not so lenient, the best deal you'll be able to get is an SIS (suspended imposition of sentence) and probation, plus possibly completion of a drug education class and community service. It all depends on your criminal history, which court...

    The record of your arrest will show up on your criminal background report. When you have an SIS with probation, that means if you successfully complete probation without any violations, your case will be closed and there will be no conviction on your criminal record, but that does not erase the record of your arrest. Missouri law says you can file a petition with the court to ask the judge to expunge your arrest record, but only if you can prove that you were arrested based on false...

    If you want to get your speeding ticket amended to a non-moving, no-point violation which will not affect your driving record or insurance rates, you need to hire a traffic law attorney to handle your ticket. Any details on the face of the ticket can be corrected or changed at any time by the police officer. You can call the court clerk and see if your ticket has been filed yet and see what speed/speed zone is listed on your ticket.
