Summary

Born in Britain, Susan F. Fremit emigrated to Canada when she was a young child. As a teenager, she completed her secondary school education while traveling between England, Portugal and Spain. Through being very involved with every community she lived, Susan encountered diverse European and Canadian cultures, which lead to her passion for justice and an interest in law. In 1991, the Law Firm of Susan F. Fremit was established to represent clients charged with criminal defense, DUI and serious traffic offenses in Windsor and Essex County, in Ontario, Canada. Over the course of a decade, Susan represented over 1,000 clients in a variety of criminal, DUI, and traffic charges.

Legal Answers
429 Questions Answered

Q. If you fire your public defender because they are not doing what you ask them to do can you get another public defender
A: My experience has been that rarely does a judge appoint a replacement public defender, even if the defendant has filed a malpractice claim against that lawyer. If you are that dissatisfied with your court appointed attorney, you might want to see if a privately retained attorney you can work with is willing to accept a payment plan.
Q. If you are below .08 can you still get arrested for drunk driving?
A: Yes, you most definitely can be charged, but not necessarily convicted, of having a blood alcohol below .08. The offense is committed if you have a blood alcohol concentration .08 or greater while having control of a vehicle OR you were intoxicated, while while having such control. Many times, an experienced DUI attorney can obtain a good result if the BAC was below .08 and there were no real problems with the field sobriety tests, no slurring of words etc.
Q. How can I drop domestic charges
A: Once you called the police, you lost control of the case. You can tell the prosecutor that you don't want to proceed with the charge, but it will depend on the prosecutor and what you you told the police.
Q. my friend had court date they moved him from jail and they cancelled the court date. what can we do. it was for motion
A: Your friend need to talk to his lawyer to learn what is going on with his case.
Q. What is the consequence of a asap violation/noncompliance with asap. (Original charge was a DWI 1st off. No other priors
A: If found guilty, the Judge could order you to serve all of your suspended sentence in jail. Contact the attorney who represented you on the DUI right away.
Q. Can a felon have his conviction removed or dismissed from his records without the crime being dismissed in SC.
A: If a person was convicted of a felony outside of VA, the person will need to look at the law of that state to see if the conviction can be removed. If the felony was committed in VA and the the person was ultimately convicted, under current VA law, that felony can never be removed from the person's records.
Q. My fiancee has a court hearing for domestic assault and she has sent numerous text messages stating that she has erased
A: If you don't have an experienced criminal defense attorney, you need to hire one now. You have presented some good cross examination information!
Q. How can a false positive on interlock be proven?
A: If you believe you have a false positive, you must convince the judge at your violation hearing what caused mouth alcohol which was not caused by the consumption of alcohol or anything you are not supposed to use, like mouth wash. Generally, for a successful outcome, you will need an experienced DUI attorney and an expert, such as a toxicologist.
Q. What to do for husband he was sentenced to probation 2006 he been in no trouble since . just picked him up What to do?
A: You are not clear on your question, but I suspect that your husband has recently been charged with a criminal offense? If yes, you need to hire a local experienced criminal defense attorney immediately. Click on"find a lawyer" on this website and make an appointment to meet with one.
