I am 24 years old. I am unlicensed. I was driving under the influence (.089)
Look, the courts are not a game of chance. An attorney would need to sit down and look at ALL the evidence in your case. If you were a .08 you are very close to the legal level which suggests a presumptively defendable case. You should hire an attorney with a good amount of trial experience. Many of us offer free consults, call around.See question

My teaching credential was revoked after 15 years of experience and I lost my job due to the revocation. How can I get my formal probation terminated in 1 year. I also want to get the felony reduced to a misdemeanor and expungement as well. I am ...
You would need to hire an attorney to file a motion for early termination and for expungement. Given that it i a felony this will be no small task, but in theory it is doable. Many of us on AVVO offer free consults call around.See question
I am wondering if anyone can help me with expunged record from ca. Is it possible to find work with the local, state or federal government? What about revoked teacher credential ctc? If the revocation was for ca penal code 245a 4.
I think you need to clarify your question. An expungement in theory means you do not have to report your conviction on any job application with some exceptions. It does not get rid of your arrest record. If you have an expungeable offense you should of course do it. If you need an attorney many of us do expungements routinely.See question
There was no weapon, no video footage, and we both have witnesses. I did not commit this crime, but the police would not take my statement, saying they "did not read me my rights.". The only "evidence" is a bouncer supporting the made up story of ...
It CAN be. The testimony of one witness is more than sufficient to prove a crime occurred. Many times when you have two people with different stories this is when you have to go to trial. Police technically do not have to read you your rights unless they intend to ask you and obtain answers to questions they make after you are arrested. You would be well advised to hire an experienced trial attorney with a good PI. Many of us offer free consults if you need additional information.See question

My friend got arrested for shoplifting and was going to apply to grad school next month. This just happened. Right now he has a court date. He doesn't know how to answer the criminal background question, since they ask for convictions for misdemea...
Since your friend is not a client of any of us we cannot give direct advice as to how to handle this dilemna. If the person was arrested there is not much one can do about that unless the criminal case is dismissed. It is NOT a good idea to lie on any application. The most important thing your friend can do is hire an attorney who can get a result that does not involve pleading guilty to a theft crime and there are ways to do this. Many of us offer free phone consults have your friend call some of us.See question
