Atlanta DUI arrests are a very rude awakening for those facing their first DUI in Georgia. The process of being pulled over or unexpectedly being required to drive through one of the many Atlanta DUI checkpoints causes many to start searching for an Atlanta DUI law firm near me. Our firm’s downtown office is at 235 Peachtree Street, Suite, 400, Atlanta GA 30303, which is about 1/2 mile from the Atlanta Pre-Trial Detention Center and the courthouse.
This page is dedicated to answering frequently asked questions (FAQs) about Georgia DUI law under OCGA 40-6-391, the upcoming arraignment, license suspension, the court process, obtaining any video or body camera footage from the arrest scene, and understanding the options for appearing at the Atlanta DUI court. Many out-of-state visitors or business travelers want to know if their appearance is required or whether the judges in the Municipal Court of Atlanta Georgia require clients to appear at every court date.
Virtually all internet surfers want to know about what Georgia DUI penalties are required on a DUI plea if the case is reduced from DUI to reckless driving or the underlying traffic ticket that led to a police pullover. Others want to know how long a chemical test of their blood will take before being reported by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
