DUI in Georgia – Hiring a DUI Lawyer

By: Bubba Head, DUI Attorney Atlanta

The shock of being arrested for driving under the influence is only exceeded by the fear of what will happen next. Your driver’s license has been taken away, you have had to pay a bail bondsman’s fee to post bond to get out of jail, and you are petrified that you will find your jail picture when you put in your name and search Google for “mugshots.” Plus, you have had to retrieve your car from a disgusting towing company lot, and pay out more money.

You have a growing list of questions and concerns about how a Georgia DUI could change your life and sidetrack your career goals. Because you want to keep your DUI arrest confidential, you hesitate to call anyone to find the best DUI lawyer to assist you, and the Internet seems to be more confusing and contradictory than helpful. On top of all that, you have not been able to sleep, due to the stress of this horrific event.

Top 10 Questions About a DUI in Georgia – ANSWERED

  1. Is a DUI a criminal offense? Yes. Every traffic ticket issued in Georgia is a criminal offense. So long as no serious injury, fatality or repeat offense is involved, the DUI arrest is almost always a misdemeanor DUI in GA.
  2. Is a DUI a felony? Accidents trigger felony DUI consequences for most DUI Georgia cases that result in DUI felonies. However, repeat offenses can be a GA DUI felony or when there are multiple underage children in the car when the driver is arrested can make a DUI a felony.
  3. Should I take DUI classes? Even in cases where your DUI attorney is able to negotiate a reduction of a DUI to reckless driving in GA, courts typically require completion of DUI School. This entails 20 hours of DUI classes. Before starting, however, first talk to your criminal defense attorney Atlanta.
  4. How do I get my driver’s license back? Your driver’s license was taken under the Georgia implied consent law, for either a DUI refusal or for submitting to a breath alcohol test and have breathalyzer test results that are over the legal alcohol limit. WARNING: You only have 30 DAYS to save your right to drive. Call us now at 404-567-5515. The call is FREE.
  5. Are DUI checkpoints constitutional? Not necessarily. Police checkpoints are warrantless, suspicion less searches and seizures that are presumptively a violation of the 4th Amendment. Dozens of legal challenges to sobriety checkpoints are able to be raised by your DUI attorney.
  6. Where can I check a BAC calculator for my legal blood alcohol level? It is very common for people arrested for DUI to search the internet for a BAC level chart. BAC levels can be checked on a BAC calculator over time, and this can be with a BAC calculator that is interactive or a static BAC chart that is laid out in a grid format.
  7. Will I be eligible for a work permit GA? This is one of the most common perplexing of all client questions, after a DUI in Georgia. Under Georgia DUI laws, a DUI refusal creates the greatest risk of total loss of driver’s license, with no work permit GA.
  8. Can the DUI be reduced to reckless driving in GA? Yes, in certain circumstances, this reduction to reckless driving in GA can be accomplished. The 3 most important factors are quality of your DUI lawyer, your prior history of DUI convictions and your BAC level, after arrest.
  9. To hire the best attorney, what is the DUI lawyer cost? First, there is no reason to look up the “average cost of a DUI lawyer,” unless you are satisfied with mediocre representation. Because the DUI defense lawyers with the best track records for winning charge more, and fighting costs more than pleading out, the cost can be high. Our initial professional consultation is FREE.
  10. How long does a DUI stay on your record? In Georgia, FOREVER. Georgia DUI laws prohibit expungement of a DUI. A DUI never ages off your criminal record. No “first offender” or “youthful offender” or “deferral” or other type of diversion or plea alternative can cause a driving under the influence charge in Georgia to be expunged. That is why hiring the best DUI lawyer is your best plan for successfully beating a DUI.
