Your facts suggest that there may be a problem other than your representation. Since you have not been to trial, you are still able to submit evidence at your trial. The fact that you were denied relief by the court indicates the PD was not ineffective as you were suggesting. You took the right...Read more »

I did everything I was ordered to do no infractions what so ever and had a Interlock device in my car until it was deemed... Read more »
Can you clarify your question? What do you mean by ALEA overriding the judges order? Are you referring to them removing a restriction from your license or have they indicated they believe you still require a interlock device regardless of the judges order?
I am not sure exactly what your question is, if you reply and clarify I would be glad to answer. I assume your question is about how to get your car back. If you know which law enforcement agency impounded the vehicle you can call and see if they will give you release instructions. If you do not...Read more »
For dui case state says I have 14 days to respond to get a blow machine and get a work permit I don’t have court for 2 more weeks or ignore the letters and let my lawyer take care of it just don’t want to hurt myself
You should be asking your lawyer this question. I usually advise people to send in the application and then review the evidence before paying for the device. But every case is different. You should really hire a lawyer if you have a pending DUI charge.
The answers to the interrogatories asked, the documents subject to a document request, the admissions that the parties make in response to requests, the oral answers to depositions of parties and witnesses, and the documents and things that are sought to be examined. What those things are is...Read more »
Hire a competent attorney now. TN has always held if you are capable of driving, whether you physically are or not, then DUI can be charged. If you had any intoxicants in your system, then what you did was a crime. But the State still has to prove it and without a chemical test, it will be a...Read more »
My friend wrecked her car and was taken to hospital by ambulance. Officer came to the hospital to test her for alcohol and she refused. He made sure she understood about losing license and gave her the pink paper He never wrote her a ticket or put her under arrest now she’s hearing she’s going... Read more »
Yes---perhaps the law enforcement officer's investigation is only just concluding so until he concludes it, he is not in position to issue a ticket. Please remember, a ticket is only an accusation and the prosecutor would still have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt each and every element...Read more »
It generally depends on the jurisdiction what the ultimate outcome will be, but it also depends on whether you are charged with gross vehicular manslaughter (which is a 10 year maximum sentence) or regular (which is a 4 year maximum sentence).

Criminal defense attorneys are not technically required to talk to anyone but the defendant. Cheap or court-appointed attorneys are often too busy to talk to the defendant's loved ones. You could hire a better attorney to replace the existing attorney and perhaps get better customer service...Read more »
What i am not understanding though, is when I asked the cop if he had a warrant for the blood test he reply was "I could get one but I don't feel like it" How can I be charged with something when I was not even placed under arrest? Also, when he said that he didn't feel like getting a warrant
You are definitely going to get charged. When you refuse the test there is an assumption that you were under the influence and you will be charged under the general impairment section of the DUI law. Additionally because he did not take the test the law says that your license will be suspended for...Read more »

First, you are not in suspension based on the arrest. Your DUI Suspension begins on the 31st day after the arrest so your legal to drive. It will show up when it goes into suspension. If you want an immediate restriction, and this is a first, get the IID installed, sign up for the alcohol education...Read more »
You need to hire an attorney and get a motion to quash on file. Depending on how long ago the warrant was issued, you may currently have a revoked drivers license. Your attorney can help clear that up through this process as well. Then you need to defend or resolve the DUI.

If you believe this person is a danger to himself/herself or others, you can request an involuntary mental health commitment. This process cannot adequately explained in this forum. Call an attorney in your area. Good luck.
