You should be prepared to support your medical harship by submitting health care records (only to th Judge because of HIPPA reasons) and make an effort to double up any classes to show that you are diligently working on completing the conditions.
The information presented here is for informational purposes only and does not constitute legal advice. The Goodman Law Group, P.C. recommends that you consult an attorney with experience in your specific legal issue. Please contact us to schedule a confidential discussion of your situation. Such communication does not create an attorney-client relationship of any kind until a formal engagement agreement is signed by both you and the Goodman Law Group, P.C.
You built up a good track record beforehand when you completed some of that programming ahead of time, so that should help the judge give you the benefit of the doubt that you're trying to get the extra counseling done promptly. Like my colleague says, be prepared to provide medical documentation of your work injury and surgery schedule, and keep attending your counseling in the meantime.
As long as you have been working toward your requirements the judge will giveyou more time to completethem.However, it sounds like your previous lawyer didn't prepare you for the alcohol evaluation and further recommendations. Have some of your medical records available to document your reasons for not finishing your counseling. You should be fine.
