  • Dui dmv hearing question.

    Hi, I've read you must request a dmv hearing within 7 days. Well here is my question, I did a blood test. The results never came back to me, until I went in for court ( the 8th of July). I was offered a plea but instead chose to go with a public d...

    If the result was over .08, the officer was supposed to fill out Express Consent paperwork and send it to DMV, which would then mail you a notice of revocation, which would give you a few days to request a hearing. If you have received no notice, and you have learned that your rest result was over .08, you had better check with DMV to make sure that the notice was mailed out to your actual address, as the revocation is effective even if you did not receive it.

  • If DUI case is dropped by the court, can driver get his/her license reinstated even tho refused BAC? Hearing date has been set.

    Are probationary licenses available? Thanks.

    Scott’s Answer

    No, you still face revocation for refusal, so long as the officer had probable cause to request the test and properly advised you of the consequences of refusal.

    Scott’s Answer

    Such lawsuits are difficult to win and uneconomic enterprises, because of how hard it is to convince jurors that the claim is legitimate, and the absence of long-term permanent injury. Personal injury lawsuits are expensive to prosecute, and small claims such as yours can be economic disasters for everyone involved. Good luck, though...

  • Can you change and existing will by writing on it and signing it or do you have to draft a new will?

    Scott’s Answer

    To be safe, if no new will can be prepared, you must at least prepare and sign in your own handwriting a codicil, changing whatever terms you wish to modify. The document should be handwritten, dated and signed by , and should express a clear-cut and definite intent to change the original will. Attach the codicil to the will, and keep them together. Good luck.
