    First, I will not assume that your friend was drunk, had a BAC over .08 or that it was his drinking and driving that caused the accident, but know that if he was drunk, and had a BAC of .08 or higher, he is looking at felony charges in a county notoriously hard on DUI offenders. He's going to need a criminal defense attorney on his side. As for your questions about insurance/medical bills, I would consult with an attorney who handles accidents/injuries to better understand how to best protect...

    Consult with several local attorneys and find one that you can trust, have confidence in and can afford. Without the blood results, it's hard to predict an outcome. There might also be motion issues that could help you out in this case. Make sure that you contact the DMV within 10 days of your arrest as well. They'll start a suspension of your license before you're ever convicted if you don't schedule a hearing. Again, the driving being just slight speeding within the normal acceptable...

    You seem to have a pretty good understanding of the law here. Generally, infraction petty thefts are for when the value of the items taken is under $50. Still, if there are some holes in the government's case, you have no record and the prosecutor is agreeable, you may be able to get an infraction. You may need to push your case closer to trial to get the deal you're looking for. As to whether the sale price would apply, that depends on what evidence of the sale is available. The seller's...

    Lawyers and judges speak a different language. Granting your petition is what the judge did. Your petition was for a finding of factual innocence. To the judge, it would be redundant. Law enforcement agencies and the DOJ must seal and eventually destroy your arrest record. That's your exoneration.

    Assuming a misdemeanor DUI, there is a lot that can be done by an attorney without your husband having to attend court. Six years is a long time to evade justice but hiring an attorney shows the court that your husband wants to confront this problem and move on. He won't get any more chances after this, though.

    Worst case scenario: up to a year in jail and Fines of over $2000. DUIs are treated more seriously when there's an accident, and the hit and run is a separate misdemeanor. That much jail time would be unlikely unless you hurt someone or other factors of the offense were really bad. You need an experienced attorney to fight this case. It sounds like you weren't charged with VC23152(b), so either they did not do a breath/blood test, your results were below .08 or they suspected that you were...

    So long as you are off probation on the 2011 DUI, you may apply for a 1203.4 dismissal. We cannot quote legal fees on Avvo, and prices do vary from attorney to attorney. I would also add, if your motivation for the expungements is to be able to get professional licensing, you may wish to first discuss these options with an administrative law attorney, who has experience with nursing licensing and the nursing board. 3 DUIs, though all misdemeanors, could certainly hold you back, even if "...

    First, try not to blame yourself for this event. It's not going to do anything but make you more anxious. It might be possible to avoid a conviction on this third DUI, but your dad will be up against a new case as well as at least one probation violation. Because of LA jail overcrowding, it might be possible to get him a deal with very little actual jail time. Talk to some local attorneys experienced in DUIs immediately and let them get started fighting for your dad. Best, Nicholas M....

    Sounds like a unique situation, and there might be a way to use your time abroad to your benefit regarding any possible license suspension. Contact some local DUI attorneys for a free consultation in discuss your case in greater detail. You may even be able to enroll in a comparable program overseas or online if you are not in California.
