    Jeffrey’s Answer

    While there are many attorneys who would be willing to talk to you for free regarding your brother's case, you might consider saving your limited financial resources and having him talk to the public defender when he gets to court. The services of the PD are free or very close to free. This sounds like a serious case. You are not likely to find the quality of lawyer you need with your limited resources.

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    If you are on DUI probation you will likely be facing a one year license revocation from DMV. Please contact a lawyer who can help you schedule an administrative hearing ASAP. Also, you may be facing jail time as well as potential other problems. Was your license valid at the time of the stop?

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    I would make arrangements to pay the balance owed as soon as possible. The hotels/casinos in Las Vegas don't tend to mess around with this sort of thing.

  • Is it common knowledge that a defendant in a criminal case can't get copy of police report by going down to police station?

    I hired defence counsel and he told me I should go down to police station to get copy of police report. The people down at police station told me only victim can request copy. Shouldn't every experienced lawyer already know this?

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    Even if a report were available to you, what lawyer would send his client to talk to law enforcement by himself? Bad call by the lawyer.

  • What will happen to my boyfriend caught driving while intoxicated in california

    He is 21. Had two friends in the car and he rolled the car and was arrested. No one was hurt. He has no liscence and his blood alcohol was only slightly high... his first offense.

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    When convicted of DUI in California there are certain mandatory minimums which come with any sentence involving probation. First, there is probation for three years, a fine of at least $390 plus the state taxes and fees, an alcohol education school, a driver's license suspension and the requirement in Los Angeles County of an ignition interlock device in order to get his license back. In this case, there is usually an additional punishment for an accident whether on not someone is injured. Likewise, there is often an additional punishment for not having a license. For the accident prosecutors often want Cal-Trans or work service and for no license they often want 48 in jail.

    Please talk to an experienced DUI attorney about your son's case.
