    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...

  6. I got a ticket saying two charges 22349 /b/vc and 12500 /a/vc , my due date to appear in court is 18th aug 2011 .

    If you plead guilty to the charges, you probably looking at $350-375 for the speeding ticket and about $500 on the 12500-Driving Withoiut Valid License. However, it is not recommended to merely pay the fines. Also, paying the fine for Speeding could cause your insurance to increase, as a conviction for a Speeding Ticket carries 1 point for this violation. Moreover, a 12500 guilty plea may result in a Misdemeanor on your record. As you may have defenses to invoke, it is best to consult and...

    Ideally, the best course of action would be to get the resources to pay for registering the car and proceed to obtain a valid license. Once , you can show current registration in your name, request from the law enforcement agency that impounded your car a release document so you can get the car out of the impound yard. However, the other problem is the police or the impound yard may not release the vehicle without valid registartion and license. If you are unable to obtain valid...

    My fellow attorneys have given you excellent suggestions, I would also suggest that you consult and hire an attorney or request a Public Defender in the Newport Beach Court. It is very important to work with an attorney who regularly appears in the court where your case is filed. I would not recommend you representing yourself where it appears there is a criminal complaint filed. Most of the AVVO attorneys provide a free case review and offer payment arrangements. You need to confer with a...

    This is the down side of Trial By Declaration (TBD) that you have to pay the ticket bail, $350, in advance in order to file Trial By Declaration. The other downside is the TBD are rarely granted by the court in favor of the Defendant. Best to use your resources to hire an attorney and fight the ticket. It is always best to have the assistance of an attorney, as what you state in the TBD can be used against you in a Trial De Novo should you lose the TBD. Good luck and hire the best traffic...

    Our law firm handles these types of cases with pending arrest warrants relating to a failure to appear and the associated traffic violation very frequently. With a retained attorney, the best coure of action would be to have the attorney recall the warrant and request a trial date for the traffic ticket. This course of action should also remove any prior license hold placed by the court that may have supended your license. Please call our office, if further assistance and information is...
