Follow your lawyer's advise. Do not attempt to second guess your lawyer by seeking online observations that stem from 6 or 7 lines you posted anonymously.
That is not fair to yourself, your lawyer or the person that wades in to your situation with insufficient information to make a tactical decision to lay out the right strategy to follow.
While I do not practice in your state,your question leads me to think that you have questions about trial that only can be answered by your Attorney.Anytime you question the trial decisions made by your Attorney,PLEASE ask him to explain to your satisfaction. His reason for not puting you on the stand to testify is a trial decision that you hired him/her to make. As for getting a license in another state please be aware that license applications are generally made UNDER PENALTY OF PERJURY asking you for any pending suspensions in your home state OR IN THE STATE OF YOUR NEW LICENSE!
Follow your lawyer's advice. Short blurbs such as these may yield incomplete advice. It is likely that your lawyer has more facts than provided in the short description above and therefore is in the best position to advise you of the best course of action to take.
