Question: I have a DUI charge in San Fernando, but before that I got a 12500 charge in Van Nuys. What will happen now? Do I have to go to both court dates? Should I hire an attorney.

Answer: In my opinion, yes, you should hire an attorney. Either you (or your attorney) needs to appear at the Court dates in San Fernando and Van Nuys unless the Courts combine the cases. It’s possible that you may be able to get charges dismissed, but, I need more info to give a more specific answer. Call me or email me again with more info about what led to the arrests.
