A DUI conviction will have an immediate and negative effect on your life. If convicted, a DUI can cost you your driver’s license, and also often comes with a steep fine. Your auto insurance premiums will skyrocket. Your reputation will be permanently harmed by the existence of a criminal record, and you could even go to jail.
But not every DUI arrest leads to a conviction. If the police made a mistake when arresting you or failed to follow proper procedures, it may be possible to obtain a dismissal of the charge. DUI penalties in Georgia are too harsh to simply give up. Before you decide to plead guilty, you should speak with an experienced DUI defense lawyer.

You have only 10 days from the date of your arrest to request an administrative hearing with the Georgia Department of Driver Services. If you do not do so, your driver’s license will be automatically suspended.
In addition to representing you in the criminal side of your case, we will defend you in the administrative hearing, seeking to prevent the suspension of your license. If this cannot be prevented, we will work to obtain limited driving privileges that allow you to drive for certain purposes.
