Walk in Wednesdays

The Judnich Law Office is pleased to announce our community program of allowing anyone to simply come into our office without an appointment and discuss any legal issue they wish free of charge. We call this, "Walk in Wednesdays". Anyone has the opportunity to speak to a licensed attorney for a free consultation about a legal issue that they would like to discuss. From questions about your rights in criminal cases, to complicated legal analysis of civil issues, our office will attempt to answer any question you like, for free.
As the name suggests, we are offering this program every Wednesday from 9am - 4pm. All you need to do is show up to our office located at 2419 Mullan Road, Suite B, Missoula, MT 59808. You don't need to call first, or bring any money. You need only bring yourself and any paperwork that may assist us. This is on a first come first serve basis, so you may have to wait your turn, but no-one will be turned away. For more information on this program, and others, please visit our website www.judnichlaw.com

DUI and your driver's license

In Montana, you will suffer some consequences if you are pulled over for a DUI. If you are pulled over and you refuse to either of two different breath tests, you will have your license suspended for 6 months. The only way to have this suspension lifted is to file a Petition in the District Court and prove that you were either pulled over illegally, or that you did not actually refuse the breath test. Short of that and you will lose .
If you are convicted of a DUI in Montana, each different conviction means a greater suspension of driver's license. For a DUI first offense, your license will be suspended, but you will have the opportunity to apply for a probationary permit, that allows for essential driving. With DUI second and subsequent convictions, your license is suspended for longer periods of time, and there is no probationary permit to allow you to drive. So, the more convictions you receive, the greater the suspension, and typically the longer you will lose that privilege.
