    Contact a local criminal defense attorney with at least ten years of experience dealing with police investigations. Hire them to contact the detective on your behalf and handle the situation for you. You'll stand the best chance of beating this case if you get help from the beginning. Don't handle this yourself and whatever you do, don't make any statements to the police without your attorney present. That includes on this forum.

    He needs to hire a local lawyer that is familiar with DUi laws. This is a tricky situation where the DA can handle this situation in many different ways. He'll benefit from having the guidance of an experienced counselor rather than trying at this himself.

  • Is being detained for 52 minutes without PC for a DUI a violation of Unreasonable Search and Seizure?

    I was arrested for DUI prosecutor dropped charge to reckless. I was unlawfully arrested without PC for DUI. Can I sue under 1983 for being held for 52 minutes before being arrested without PC? This arrest was a violation of my rights.

    Isaac’s Answer

    If you pled, did you agree to any waivers as a condition of the plea? If so, one may have precluded the ability to now sue. Time is not the sole factor in determining unreasonable detention.

  • Can I get my case "re-expunged"?

    Help please. Several years ago I plead to a felony. I had my attorney who I later realized was a DUI attorney expunge my case. I went to look for a job and they said I had a felony on my record still. I found out the attorney failed to reduce...

    Isaac’s Answer

    Unfortunately, once you have the matter "expunged" the Court technically loses jurisdiction over the matter since it has technically been "dismissed." Therefore, unless a ultra rare circumstance, it is unlikely you will be able to "re-expunge" the case. More discerning though is how your potential employer saw the felony if it was "expunged"? It's possible that although your motion for expungement was granted, your DOJ record does not reflect this "expungement" and that is why it is still on your background check. You should immediately get your record from the DOJ and see if the felony was "expunged" from their record. If not, you'll have to get a certified copy of the expungement and send it to the DOJ. Feel free to call a local attorney for a free consult.

    what ARE MY CHANCES OF GETTING OFF TRYING TO GET MY REAL ESTATE LICENSE

    Isaac’s Answer

    You may be eligible to have the conviction reduced to a misdemeanor at the same time. This may help your licensing issue too. Give one of us local attorneys a call for a free consult to find out more about your options. You wouldn't recommend someone buy a house without speaking to a real estate agent, would you?!

    Isaac’s Answer

    You can go to the business office of the courhouse and request to have the warrant recalled. To stand any chance of success, you need to appear in Court before you are arrested on the warrant.
    If you cannot afford an attorney the Judge will appoint the Public Defender's office to represent you. If you can, contact a local San Bernadino attorney now for a free consultation and ask for assistance in getting the warrant recalled ASAP.

  • What Is B+p and CPV

    And what are the differences

    Isaac’s Answer

    I'll venture to guess that B+P means business and professions code. Without further context I cannot decipher CPV. Maybe court probation violation?

  • Is there a specific list of felonies that may be expunged in CA? If so, what is the procedure for expungement?

    Is there a specific list of felonies that may expunged in CA after a certain period of time? The person I am working has two goals: Expungement of her felony and obtaining a driver's license that had been revoked. What is the process of expunging ...

    Isaac’s Answer

    Yes, expungements are governed by CA Penal Code 1203.4 and 1203.4(a). If "your friend" has a felony conviction, they should speak with a licensed criminal attorney to see if the felony can first be reduced to a misdemeanor. Each courthouse has different policies on how to file a motion to expunge a felony or misdemeanor. Typically, a felony motion requires a written motion and notification of the DA's office.
