I got a dui on Friday night, and I was wondering what I have

I got a dui on Friday night, and I was wondering what I have to do now to try and lower it to reckless driving or if its even possible, I blew a .125. I just want to know if its possible I have been going through a lot I just gave birth two weeks ago and placed my daughter up for adoption I started taking depression pills and seeing a counselor because I need a lot of help I felt like my world is falling apart. The reason why I got a dui was because I was talking to the father of my baby and things got out of hand I accidently hit him and he started bleeding so I got off the car because I couldn't take it I was so overwhelmed and I didn't want to make things worse so his brother called the cops and then I was drinking when I was with him because we went to go eat at a restaurant/bar. when I got off the car I walked home it gave me time to calm down and think so I wanted to go and apologize and without thinking I drove to his house but the police officers where there and they saw me so they went and pulled me over. Do I have a chance at reducing it to reckless driving ?

My son had totaled his car back in december 2015 when he

my son had totaled his car back in december 2015 when he bought the car in march of 2015 he purchased GAP insurance i was against him buying because i heard nothing but bad reviews however the dealership assured us he was 100% covered.Well CNA NATIONAL is refusing to pay because he got charged for reckless driving he was not under the influence of alcohol or drugs we feel like we were misled by the dealership & that CNA NATIONAL is taking advantage of him due to his age 23 years old.Other than reckless driving he was not charge for any illegal activity.MY question is do we have a case or is he screwed? The dealership never supplied us with a binder & told us that they are not required to. Thank You Marshall Field

This past Wednesday I was charged with "reckless

Hello,This past Wednesday I was charged with "reckless driving due to speed" in the state of Virginia. I have retained an attorney here who specializes in traffic related charges and we plan to pursue a reduction in the charge to speeding, improper driving, or dismissal based primarily on the fact that I have a clean driving record and no criminal record. I have a PhD and work in a field with many collaborators in Canada and the UK. Because I anticipate that I may need to travel to the UK in the near future, I am looking into the possible impact that this charge may have whether it is reduced and whether it is not reduced.Thank you for your assistance.

Okay, this will sound a bit weird but just hear me out:I

Okay, this will sound a bit weird but just hear me out:I was driving in the turning lane and a truck was turning onto my street, being an inexperienced driver with good reflexes I put it in reverse and backed into the person behind me. So we went to the side of the road, it did not look like much damage, I gave them my info, took pics of my car and their car, and then they left. (No police report filed cause I guess none of us called.) Then 5 days later they called me saying they will get estimates, then another few days later got a few, and then another week goes by and they say $1700.short version:-I backed into them-said sorry, gave insurance info (I know, i shouldn't have, my dad says it was not a good move.)-took pics of both cars (they took pics of just theirs)-I didn't get their info, just a name and phone number (I'm inexperienced sorry... first time incident...-no police report-So far none of our insurances have been contacted yetIs their anything I can do? Or do I just go pay the $1700?
