Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'm an attorney. I’ll be happy to help you in any way I can. This site is for educational purposes only. Sometimes - although certainly not always - experts have to give you what you deem “bad news” but that should not be a reflection of how satisfied you are with the assistance your expert provided. My goal is to make sure you are completely satisfied before you submit your rating so please let me know if you have additional questions or you need me to clarify anything If there is a delay in the time it takes me to respond it is because I am working with a customer or I am not online - but rest assured I will respond to your follow up question, if you have one. Also, occasionally I will respond from a mobile JA unit, which automatically asks you to submit a rating once I submit a response - but please don't feel like you need to do so until we are done speaking.

Hello. I noticed you have not yet submitted feedback and therefore the question remains "Open" on my end. I was wondering if you need any additional information or need me to clarify anything first. I’d be happy to do so. If you have additional questions please feel free to ask them in this thread. I want to make sure you are completely satisfied BEFORE you submit your feedback.
In Marin County, if you are on Probation, you will face a probation violation hearing. Since it is another DUI, the judge may sentence you to jail time on your violation and on your new case. You are entitled to a hearing for the violation of probation.
If convicted of this new DUI, you will be considered a multiple offender, and you will definitely be facing an 18 month DUI program, which you will have to pay $1,619.00 for. Here is the website for this program: http://www.dui-marin.org/programs/multiple-offender-dui-program.
