The Penalties You May Face Are Very Serious
DUI charges are taken very seriously in Georgia. Between court hearings for the criminal charge and automatic license suspension hearings, those who are accused of driving while intoxicated face a number of serious penalties. Any one of these penalties can affect your current employment and future opportunities. Without working knowledge of Georgia law and how it relates to the circumstances of your case, you may not be able to effectively defend yourself against the charges.
A DUI conviction results in one or more of the following penalties:
- Serving a jail sentence
- Undergoing a probationary period
- Paying heavy fines
- Participating in community service
- Suspension of driver's license
- Attending DUI school
- Permanent mark on criminal record

However, with the help of our DUI lawyer in Atlanta, you may be able to have your case dismissed entirely. Our legal team has years of experience working as former prosecutors, which means that we have extensive knowledge of the law from both sides of the courtroom.
