Your question contains far too facts to be able to give a precise answer. A district attorney MAY be able to refile charges after a motion to suppress but that is a fact based determination based on the facts of your individual case. Yes, if there is a refiling a warrant can issue and your attorney should be standing by with a bondsman ready to bail you out and arrange bail should that occur. If you are having problems with communication with your attorney than perhaps you should consider new...
You're getting way ahead of yourself here. What happened to mounting a vigorous defense to prevent that 2nd DUI!? No you don't go straight to jail, even if you plead on day 1, something you should hardly ever do. Talk to some lawyers before talking yourself into jail.

There is just no way to accurately answer this without a full file review. Id want to look at the complaint and Discovery as well as your prior criminal history which does factor into what could happen to you if you go to trial and do not prevail. I would highly recommend settling on an attorney before your Prelim. This is an important phase of the litigation and if there is an offer on the table, it may go away after your Prelim and you want counsel to have as much time to work out a...
You are putting the cart before the horse. No one here is going to be able to speak about your guilt or innocence or chances of success at trial without sitting down with you and the records of your case and provide an informed opinion as to what you should do with your case. Every case is far dependent. Many of us offer free consults so if you want us to take a look and give you a more informed opinion call any time.
Absolutely critical. You will have no way of knowing whether you have a beatable case. My office is very aggressive and reasonable in taking cases that have a defense to trial. A DUI stays with you for 10 years. If you miss an opportunity to beat it or reduce it, if the $ is the issue consider the cost of 10 years of insurance premiums doubled. Also the PD can do nothing for you on the DMV hearing. You do that on your own, you lose. Call around.
We give a free consult. You might be...
That depends on what charge your friend was convicted of that lead to the Probation. Many charges can be reduced to a misdemeanor. Best to have him call some lawyers to see if its doable. We do a free consult so if your friend wants to call we may be able to help.

Since she will be coming back on an international flight, the answer is very possibly yes. If she can hire counsel to try to get the warrant recalled before she comes back you should definitely give it a try. A judge does not have to recall the warrant without her being present, but with some creative lawyering, especially a family emergency in a foreign country, we might be able to get it recalled before she comes back. We have gotten warrants recalled without the defendant being present all...
Because it's San Bernardino. It's likely charges have not been filed and law enforcement will most always arrest someone on a higher charge to make the bail higher. Its fairly common. He may very well ultimately be charged with just Petty Theft but it's a wait and see game. The D.A makes that call. You *diot son might be well served to get counsel before charges are filed to see if a settlement can be reached. Many of us on AVVO offer free consults. Call around.
Well for starters I am sorry this happened to you. Obviously you should not speak to the police at all for any reason. Your rights need only be read once you are formally under arrest and police ask investigative questions. From what you described that did not happen. An attorney will need more facts to determine what if any defenses you may have to this case. They are often defensible cases depending on the conduct and the words that are used. If you can obtain private counsel you would be...
