    From what you are saying, it sounds as if the officer only had one witness to talk to at the time and may have not been presented with all of the facts. Make sure that you have a complete copy of the report. See if there are any witnesses, were there any photos taken, and whether or not a complete accident investigation was completed. Given your injuries, you should contact a local personal injury attorney and discuss this matter in person.

    The first issue that you're going to have is whether or not you gave a recorded statement to your insurance company. It is one reason why you're probably going to want to hire an attorney, given th potential criminal charges. The insurance company may not respect the fact that you have the right to remain silent with regard to your criminal charges unless you have an attorney. A smart prosecutor will attempt to get a copy of a recorded statement or any written statement that you gave to your...

    Contact an attorney in Cobb County, Georgia to discuss the Violation of the Protective Order with the DA. You may qualify for a court appointed attorney but you will possibly have to go to Cobb County and turn yourself in on the Violation, before you can apply for the court appointed attorney. Additionally, while it is fortunate that the charges were dismissed in the matter involving your girlfriend (or ex-girlfriend), there may be other issues leading to the violation of probation. Sometimes...

    You have asked a question that requires a lot more analysis than you will be able to get here. It is why you have hired an attorney. Your attorney probably has a good grasp of the facts and applicable law, and the ability to advise you, beyond what you can do for yourself. However, if you are not comfortable with the strategy in place (with no disrespect meant to your current counsel), contact another attorney and have them review it.

    Yes, the law is any detectable amount if alcohol. However, if they don't give you a breath test or blood test you may be able to beat out the ALR suspension.

    Contact the court and notify them of your boyfriend's transgression, so they are not hearing of it for the first time at the hearing. Is there any way for you to get the picture for you to show the Judge. The Judge will most likely just want to admonish you and see what happens. The ignition interlocks don't work sometimes, which is why he may not have just violated you right away. Also, send a copy of the photo to your PO as well. The camera on the ignition interlock may not always work....

    You will not be able to get a conviction expunged or non-disclosed. If you can appeal it or get a pardon (long shot), you may be able to do something. If it is dismissed; jury/judge finds you not guilty; or successfully complete a Pre-Trial Diversion you can get the case expunged. If you successfully complete a deferred you can get that matter non-disclosed.

    Contact an attorney to file a motion on your behalf for the modification. Make sure enough time has passed for the Judge to feel that you have learned your lesson. In other words, contact someone who has been in this court before. The Judge is probably not concerned about drugs but trying to punish/teach you a lesson with regard to compliance. An alcohol violation on the probation for a DWI 3rd probably has said Judge quite upset. The focus of your argument should address the fact that you...

    Actually, it depends on the State of Record, in other words the state reporting the DWI/DUI! I am guessing it is not Texas since you are referring to it as DUI, instead of a DWI, unless you were under 21 at the time. In which case, why didn't you take the DADJ. A DUI for a minor is a misdemeanor C and will have a different time period most likely. Depending on charge, state, and time frame you might want to check on purging your record. Once purged it should not be available. See about getting...

    You will not face criminal charges as a result f this matter. Depending on what paperwork you signed with the bonding company, if you did sign paperwork with them, you may face civil liability. In other words, the bonding company may come after you for the remainder of the bond, should your friend take any action that causes a bond forfeiture, which can include failing to call/check in. If his bond is forfeited, a warrant is usually then issued for his (your friend) arrest. Your friend needs an...
