2nd dui . Not a citizen. Alcohol level 0.09. Alabama. What can you do and what do I need to do plus what is the cost?
You definitely need an attorney. We are not allowed to recommend attorneys on this forum, but if you use the Find a Lawyer tab above, you should be able to find a DUI attorney in your area.
Since you are not a citizen, make sure that you ask the attorney if they are familiar with the basics of immigration law. A DUI can significantly affect your immigration status.
Best of luck!

You need a lawyer. You must negotiate the fee with the lawyer you choose to hire.
Even though Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, it must be clear that any answers are based on limited information and particular circumstances may influence any direct advice. Any information is given strictly for guidance to seek independent legal advice.
Alabama considers Driving Under the Influence a serious matter. It is my opinion that you do need an attorney. You can review the relevant Alabama Code Sections and consider the possible consequences. Alabama Code Section 32-5A-191. I would consult with an attorney immediately.
Good to see Mrs. Mims on this question and this may be out of her footprint, however I recommend both an immigration atty and a DUI atty to represent you in this matter.
