    And bring more attention to yourself and the unfounded accusations made against you? Not to mention the high burden you'd be faced with affirmatively proving foul play on the part of the complainant and/or law enforcement.

    Since the BAC post-arrest was below .08 your license should (key word) remain in tact pending the results of any court case. But you (or the locally experienced criminal defense attorney you hire) should still request a DMV administrative hearing within 10 calendar days of your arrest. In spite of your admissions of your harmful drinking pattern on a public forum such as avvo.com you still have a shot at beating the case at trial if not negotiating a favorable settlement to a lesser...

    Even if the court were to somehow defy decades of DUI practice and accept it, your daughter would unfortunately still have issues with DMV unless and until the program is completed. Best move might be to try and see if the court can stay the 18 month program for a while until she gets squared away.

    Sliding scale....since your attorney doesn't know you or they should contact CPAC directly and ask.

    You are better off contacting the Public Defender's Office. They might be able to assist in getting your case calendared to attempt to have the warrants recalled and ideally get you reinstated on probation.

    Of course you should "bother with a defense lawyer for a 2nd DUI"!!!!!!!!! You are facing up to a year in jail if convicted and clearly are in the dark with respect to what is and is not relevant in your defense.

    Absolutely. Hire yourself the best, locally experienced criminal defense attorney you can afford. Don't get too caught up on Avvo ratings and years in experience as others have suggested. Rather, focus on the experience as it relates to the number of cases handled and overall client reviews. Many time an "experienced" criminal defense attorney in years in practice is not nearly as skilled as one with less years, but one who has successfully handled more cases in a shorter amount of time....

    While I applaud your proactivity here, the best move would be to hire yourself a quality, locally experienced, criminal defense attorney to assist in hopefully avoiding having to do any DUI related classes (i.e. winning the DMV hearing and resolving the case for less than a wet reckless or obtaining not guilty verdicts at trial).

    No attorney should, even if they could, guarantee anything as it relates to their "estimate of success rate." 2k is relatively cheap for a quality, locally experienced, criminal defense attorney.
