    This is a no-brainer. Yes. Get him the best DUI lawyer you can find in the area. He is looking at a posible felony due to the injury. Even if this is a 1st offense, he could spend considerable time in jail.

    I don't handle lawsuits against government agencies, so I can't really comment on your chances wining something like that. I handle DUI cases. What you could do to help others in the future is make a written complaint against the arresting cop. All you really need to establish is that your blood was completely clean from anything an that he still believed you failed the FSTs, and says he saw signs of impairment. This would be used by defense attorneys in the future to show that these tests are...

    As things are now, no. However, you may be able to have the suspension put on hold if you file a petition for writ of mandate and immediately follow that with an ex parte application for a stay under Ccp 1094.5.

    If the HI court convicts you, and CA DMV finds out (an it will - it's just a matter of time as mr. Fremont suggested), then your CA privilege will be suspended for 6 months - just like a conviction here in CA. However, there is another suspension possible. If the HI MVLD administratively suspends Your driving privilege or HI license, and CA DMV finds out (it most likely will find out), CA DMV will suspend your CA license until the HI MVLD clears the suspension in HI. You may be able to avoid...

    The problem is you might have been really drunk when you drove there 3.5 hours before. They don't have to catch you in the act of driving. You still need a good DUI attorney. Good luck.

    I have seen this many times. It actually happens about 5000 times every year. Unfortunately, most people just do what the DMV says without a fight. Others, research ad reach out as you have done and discover there is another way. However, it does usually require hiring an experienced DUI/DMV attorney that has experience filing writs. Me, and a few others do these regularly. Very few do them in San Diego regularly, such as myself. The proper place to file it is in the county you live. Call an...

    The page that really needs to be signed is page 1 of that form. The pink paper you got is page 3 (read the top). So you don't know if page 1 is signed or not. It wasn't signed at the time they handed you page 3, but it may be signed by the time the officer gets ready to send it to DMV. So, it likely means nothing. Business as usual. Speeding in a construction zone could have an impact. Speeding more than 20mph over the speed limit might mean the prosecution will ask for 60 days jail even on a...

    Hire a DUI attorney immediately. Sometimes there are flaws in the pink temporary license they gave you allowing you to still get a hearing past 10 days. You may also be able to get a hearing if the charges are reduced in court. You don't need a hearing if you are found not guilty in court.
