    Taking traffic school now would be the most risk free approach. However, if you hire a traffic attorney and set the matter for trial, the attorney may be able to either have the case dismissed at trial or obtain traffic school at trial. An experienced traffic attorney most often can get you a better result from the court , then one representing oneself. Feel free to call our offices for more information or assistance. Richardl.

    The demand for $325 is for civil damages allowed under California Law for the store to be reimbursed for their internal costs of maintaining security equipment and personnel. This demand has no negative consequences to your criminal case. As such, most attorneys, will advise not to pay it. It is most probable that the Attorney Asen will NOT file suit in California for $325, as his offices is in the New York. Further, he would be only able to get at the most a civil judgment. At this point,...

    Your posted question is something I am quite familar. Recently, I was informed by the Irvine DMV Public Safety Office that one has to wait until there is a gulty plea received, conviction entered, and 90 days has passed after this conviction to apply for a Restricted License as to a Second DUI. I would also agree that Orange County is the toughest county for DUI cases. On a Second Dui, the District Attorney will push for 60-90 days of county jail time. I would highly recommend you consult...

    If this was your First DUI and lost your DMV Hearing, then suspension is for 4 months, not 30 days. Check you license suspension decision notice. Once you are enrolled in a court approved alcohol program for 30 days and license suspended for 30 days, then you can apply for a restrictive license for 5 months. I would also suggest that you hire an experienced DUI Attorney who regularly practices in the court where you case will be heard. Such an attorney can have a significant impact on...

    Unlike driving under the influence of alcohol with statutory limit of .08, there is such no legal or statutory limit with Xanax and other lawwful drug. Hence, the facts of your case will drive your case resolution. As noted in your posting, you passed all of the police tests, and your arrest was based upon your eyes looked strange. Based on the limited information provided, I would encourage you to hire an experienced DUI attorney to vigorously defend and agressively proceed to initially...

    The other posts to your questions are from Los Angeles attorneys are quite informative. However, they may not be closely familar with the current handling of First DUI cases in Orange County, especially in the Newport Beach Court where your case would be heard. First, I am unable to comment whether your case could be dismissed, as I do not have enough information to examine whether there was a valid stop and arrest. If there lacks probable cause and a valid arrest, then efforts by your...

    Both of the above counsel have given excellent reviews and concerns regarding the issue you have presented regarding possible deportation. Again, the Judge will not ask your legal status. I would add to the discussion that there is a significant difference in your case. First, your criminal charges would be a Misdemeanor Petty Theft. As such, I am experiencing that the Orange County District Attorney, so long as this is the first offense, will agree to allow the case to be dimsissed upon...

    You are faced with both the open container infraction plus a Misdemeanor Failure to Appeal that will cause an additional civil assessment/fine of $325 and the court has the power to issue a warrant for your failure to appear. Although you do not have legal cause to avoid the Failure to Appear Fine, an experienced attorney should be able to reduce the civil assessment. Further, you case may be dismissed if the officer does not appear at trial. Suggest you consult with an attorney before...

    Generally speaking and Currently, the Orange County Jail is giving One (1) Day Credit for each actual day served. Hence, your girlfriend could be out in 15 days, or it may be 20 days or 2/3's of the acutal 30 days sentence. Richard Grant Orange County Criminal Defense Attorney 949-582-9394
