    You should hire an attorney to follow up on this for you. You should not be attempting to contact the DA yourself. Hiring an attorney will save you from having to make the drive and the attorney can attempt to convince the DA not to file the case. You can hire an attorney simply for the purpose of "pre-filing negotiation" to convince the DA not to file the case which would likely mean a substantially lower price than one would have to pay an attorney to defend a DUI once it is filed in court....

    Your boyfriend needs to hire an aggressive attorney ASAP to fight the DUI. The attorney should work to minimize any future immigration consequences your boyfriend might face if eventually attempts to gain legal immigration status through marriage to you. Good luck.

    She should certainly fight this case. Much will come down to what she told the officer. If she admitted she was driving 5 minutes before the cop arrived that is different than if she made no statement. Driving can be proven circumstantially (with some difficulty) but the timing of the driving is also critical given the relatively low .08 bac. She should hire an attorney asap

    No do not do this, it will surely hurt you. The judge likely will not even read the letter you sent him and if he does read it he'll be obliged to share the contents with your counsel and the DA. If you wish to withdraw your plea based on something your attorney did or failed to do, you should request a Marsden attorney. At this hearing, the judge will empty the courtroom and DA will leave. You can then speak freely to judge about why you want another attorney to file a motion to withdraw...

    Defendant statement elicited through custodial interrogation is not admissible unless preceded by a Miranda advisement. You need a lawyer ASAP to thoroughly examine and challenge you charges. Best of luck.

    You need an attorney to handle this for you. Your Insurance will only defend you against claims made by others. If you're claiming other party was at fault and owes you money for property damage and personal injury, you must go after opposing insurance. It is best to use an attorney

    Nobody here can provide better advise than your attorney can, have a long talk with him/her. Ultimately you decide whether to take a plea deal or exercise your right to trial. If you are not happy with your attorney, hire another one. Cease putting potentially incriminating material online.

    Whether a DUI conviction will affect your job entirely depends on your employer's policies and practices. Some employer's human resource departments do conduct periodic background checks, others only conduct the initial background check, still others will only conduct a background check if they want to terminate you (for some other reason) and will use information of the DUI conviction as one the basis essentially as a pretext to terminate. A wet reckless may or may not be treated any...
