We Handle DUI Cases of All Kinds
Individuals may be charged with DUI in a number of different situations. Depending on the circumstances of an arrest, the DUI may result in a misdemeanor or felony charge. However, even a misdemeanor DUI conviction can have serious consequences on an individual's future. The key to success in your DUI case is understanding the charges you are facing.
Some of the common DUI charges include the following:
Helping Individuals with Driver's License Suspension
One of the most common punishments for DUI is driver's license suspension. When citizens refuse to submit to a chemical BAC test after they are arrested for DUI, the Georgia law of implied consent allows police officers to automatically suspend the citizens' drivers' licenses. If your license has been suspended, you have ten days to schedule a hearing with the Georgia DDS and appeal the suspension. Our DUI lawyers are able to represent our clients in DDS hearings and criminal trials to prevent their license from being suspended, and to help them restore their driving privileges.
Understanding Your Rights During a DUI Arrest
The circumstances of your arrest plays a vital role in your DUI defense. Everything from your actions to the actions of the arresting officer may be used in your defense. However, individuals may not know if the officer followed correct police procedure. The fact is, improper police procedure and mishandled evidence may give you the edge you need to protect yourself against a conviction.
