    It is a very, very reckless move to contact the police yourself. The FBI is involved. It take a lot to get the FBI involved. Do you think you can just talk yourself out of this and walk? You need to find a competent criminal Defense lawyer right now to run interference.

    It is not just some of the older attorneys who do this. There are a great any attorneys who advertise heavily, and then when hired, pass off your case to someone younger and less experienced. You SHOULD get a guarantee in writing specifying exactly what is it he will do and what it is that any associate attorney will do for you. As for your 25 minute consultation, please understand that we attorneys have many, many people calling us all day requesting free consultations. 20-25 minutes is a...

    Let me answer this differently. Suppose you go to an doctor because the lab results indicate you may have cancer. Before the doctor examines you or sends you out for any other tests, you ask him, "Doctor, what are my chances." What do you do? Do you take the risk of dying of cancer because you don't want to spend the money on the treatment, or do you spend the money on the treatment knowing if may, or may not, work? That's your answer. No competent attorney will provide you with an estimate...

    I handle federal DUI's all the time. Who told you to plead guilty? Bad idea. They are charging you with DUI, where you blew .00 and yet didn't have you take a blood or urine test? Without knowing more, I'd say you have some really viable defenses there. Besides the fact that they will not be able to prove you were under the influence of drugs because there is no drug test, I have found that the MP's who administer the field tests are completely inept and almost never come with the proper...

    If you hire a bail bondsman to clear the warrant, the court will then set a future date for you to appear for arraignment. When you walk into court, the warrant will have been cleared and you won't be taken into custody. At arraignment, the court can raise bail. But if you've taken action to recall the warrant first and then walk into court, that may not happen.

    Yes. The statute of limitations has not run. However, if you had not previously been charged, and the DA's office just filed now, you might prevail on a Motion to Dismiss called a "Serna" motion. I have won these before. Contact me if you wish to hire an experiences attorney. I have been successfully representing people accused of crime for 21 years.
