Yes, your attorney should be able to negotiate a resolution on both cases that will be better than if you paid each ticket or lost at a trial. What the ultimate resolution will be is going to be dependent on your record and other factors. You have made the right decision by hiring an attorney.

Yes, an officer can chose to send a citation later. It is also possible he was directed to do so by his superiors or the prosecutor. You should have received notice. Was the address on the ticket where you live or receive mail?

If you go to the court to ask you will be taken into custody. Hire an attorney who is familiar with the court system where your...Read more »

As you say you were picking up a toy, however, the officer did not see that and has to go based on what he observed. If he believes he has enough evidence to prove intoxication you have a serious issue on...Read more »
