more info needed.

however, you have to look to what Washington demands.

we are doing the same thing with a Calif DUI with a client living in Hawaii.

the best thing is to check with a company that handles it in your state and see if they can refer to someone.

a class is often ok for the court but not for our DMV.

The DMV is its own separate system from the court and DCSS. You need to contact the DMV to determine the status of your license and reinstate through them. Nothing outside the DMV will automatically reinstate your drivers license.

more info needed.

speeding tix are usually infractions.......unless you are going so fast ie 100mph or so...............then it could be a speed contest or reckless driving.

1-month suspension would be unusual for a simple traffic tix.

this is important enough that i would hire a lawyer in your area could look into it and maybe get the matter removed............maybe remove your plea and have the judge dismiss.

yes, they can change code sections.

they often a not ready at an arraignment and then instead of notifying you they just file as a BW............totally wrong but one all the time.

It is difficult to assess the issues related to your case without seeing the police reports and any body worn camera footage which may exist.

You should sit down with your current attorney to go over all issues concerning possible violations of your constitutional rights.

With that said, in any vehicle stop case the officer must have reason to believe a crime has been committed to stop your car. An obscured license plate could provide the officer with legal justification to...

You have the right to have an attorney represent you, but the majority of the case will be related to your medical condition and what medications you take and what your doctors examination report and recommendation says.

If you would like an experienced attorney guide you with this then call for a free consult and see if you want to hire an attorney for this issue.

YOU WILL AT LEAST BE CHARGED WITH A 14601 DRIVING ON A SUSPENDED LICENSE...WHICH IS A MISDEMEANOR NOT AN INFRACTION.

WHAT HAPPENS WILL DEPEND ON YOUR RECORD AND FOR WHAT THE LICENSE WAS SUSPENDED............YOU MAY GET JAIL SENTENCE BUT YOU CAN TRADE FOR HOME ARREST WITH AN ANKLE BRACELET..........

MY ADVICE IS TO GET A LAWYER ASAP.

was he known by the police? did these officers arrest him in past?

Mr. Hudson Thomas Bair's answer
It's hard to answer your question because you really aren't asking a question. If you were arrested for DUI then you should consult a lawyer as quickly as possible since you have rights that will "expire" within 10 days of your arrest. Despite the fact that your license is expired you can reinstate at any time (unless you are suspended, in which case you have to clear up the suspension before getting your license). It seems likely the stop for swerving was the grounds for the initial contact...

As my parents use to say Life if not always Fair.

a lawyer needs more info. However, if YOU were to set up a consultation I WOULD Bill $750 for one and that would not be fair for you AND I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THAT.

SOME LAWYERS SPECIALIZE IN HANDLING TIX BUT THEY WOULD BILL $800-2500 DEPENDING ON THE COURTHOUSE.

if you broke the law you can either pay your fine, SET THE MATTER FOR TRIAL, OR ASK FOR TRAFFIC SCHOOL TO GET IT OFF YOUR RECORD.

It would seem that you are being sued for causing a collision that damaged either property, other people, or both. You might contact Alliance to find out, or notify your insurer, or the insurer for whomever owns the vehicle your were driving, or hire an attorney yourself if there is no insurance. If there is no insurance at all, you might consider consulting with bankruptcy attorneys.

need more info

if it was just an accident without a dui, then they would only suspend your CDL if you did not have insurance at the time of the accident or you had to many points on your record.

you should be eligible to get your license back so if you went to DMV they will tell you what you have to do and WHEN you can get it back.

YOU NEED TO HIRE A CRIMINAL LAWYER IN YOUR AREA OR THE AREA WHERE THE ORIGINAL INCIDENT TOOK PLACE.

AS A RULE, I SUGGEST THAT CLIENTS USE ME AS A STRAWMAN ...IE THAT THEIR LAWYER TOLD THEM NOT TO TALK WITHOUT THE LAWYERS PERMISSION. MAYBE THE LAWYER SHOULD CALL THEM. YOUR POSITION IS THAT YOU WOULD BE HAPPY TO COOPERATE.

IF YOU ARE ABLE TO RETAIN A LAWYER CALL ME AND I WILL GIVE YOU SOME NAMES FOR THAT AREA.
