Have you been arrested for Driving Under the Influence?
You may only have 10 DAYS to save your driver’s license!
Your license could be suspended if:
- You refused to take the State blood, breath or urine test requested by the officer,
- You took the State’s test and the results were .08 grams or more, or positive for drugs, or
- You get convicted for DUI
YOU MAY HAVE TWO SEPARATE CASES PENDING IN TWO SEPARATE COURTS
If you refused to take the State’s test, or you took the test and had results of .08 grams or more, the arresting officer most likely mailed your license to the Georgia Department of Driver’s Services, for you license to be suspended – a suspension that could last up to a year and which allows no driving permit of any kind. If this has happened, you have ONLY TEN (10) DAYS from the date of your arrest to request a hearing to stop the State from suspending your license. This hearing is completely separate from the criminal charges that are pending as a result of your arrest. Hiring an attorney as soon as possible after your arrest ensures the best possible chance of keeping your license. Call now to schedule an appointment.
DUI CASES ARE AMONG THE MOST COMPLEX CRIMINAL CASES
DUI investigations involve detailed, scientific evidence, which must meet the same rigorous standards as DNA testing or ballistic matches. The State will need to bring in experts with years of training and experience to testify against you. You need an attorney who fully understands the various scientific tests that the police and GBI use, as well as the science behind the tests. Hiring an attorney who can recognize the weaknesses in the State’s case, and negotiate with the State’s attorney, can help you get a reduce sentenced, a reduced charge, and sometimes an outright dismissal or acquittal. Call now to schedule an appointment.
DUI CAN RESULT IN SEVERE CONSEQUENCES
In addition to the suspensions listed above, you also face possible jail time, probation, community service and many other conditions of probation. On top of the punishment imposed by the State, you can also face personal consequences, such as increased insurance premiums, cancelled insurance, and even loss of employment. Considering the severe consequences, you need an experienced attorney who will fight for you and your rights. Call now to schedule an appointment.
