Criminal Defense cases begin by seeing What Criminal Offenses are being accused. Hundreds of different problems with a person’s Georgia driver’s license may occur, from a points violation, super speeder GA suspension, underage driver suspension by pleading guilty while representing himself or herself, etc. However, most clients calling our law office are facing criminal cases involving a driving under the influence accusation, or driver’s license reinstatement.

Our Lawyers for DUI Defense Answer Questions and provide Legal Advice. Our attorneys at law offer all callers a FREE consultation since our attorneys in Atlanta, GA know how stressful and confusing this type of criminal charge can be. Call today for immediate attention.

Georgia DMV Issues After a Drunk Driving Arrest and Facing Pending DUI Charges

When Facing Criminal Charges and Administrative License Suspension. Most DUI-related callers need advice about the administrative driver’s license suspension shown on the GA DDS 1205 form. Others may have put a DUI conviction on their record and later realized their mistake when job openings were closed to them, due to their driving history.

If you are trying to unravel one or more issues with the Georgia Department of Driver Services after a DUI conviction or have a pending DUI with a 30-day time frame to act on your breath test refusal or a blood test refusal, our legal professionals can assist you. Our criminal lawyers routinely receive panicked calls from people needing help from DUI lawyers near me.

A DUI on your driving history is forever. These convictions cannot be expunged, diverted or "age off" your criminal record. For that reason, the impact can be devastating.

After every DUI arrest, the officer is SUPPOSED to read a legal advisement, called the “Georgia implied consent law” NOTICE. If you REFUSED this testing, your driver’s license was TAKEN, and a piece of paper was given to replace it. RED ALERT!! You are at risk of being BANNED from ALL driving privileges if you don’t act within thirty (30) days after your arrest date.

In a nutshell, the Georgia implied consent statute permits an officer to REQUEST (from an arrested DUI driver) a post-arrest test of your:

BLOOD

or

URINE

(or both of these types of tests). Breath alcohol testing is no longer mentioned in the initial part of the implied consent warning, after the ruling in Elliott v. State case in 2019.

Blood or urine testing can determine what substance or substances (e.g., marijuana, illegal drugs like crystal meth, prescription drugs like Xanax, Ambien, oxycodone) you have in your bloodstream, or in your breath (which yields alcohol ONLY). Blood tests permit the most precise quantitation of all substances if the blood is tested for both alcohol and drugs.

Top-Rated Criminal Defense Lawyers Near Me

When a DUI accident involves death or serious personal injury, the stakes are very high. State prison time is part of most sentences, if convicted. Never simply select a random attorney from a lawyer directory, without closely examining her or his courtroom qualifications.

Occasionally, a DUI arrest of the breadwinner in the family causes domestic issues. When that occurs, our client may need to consult a family law specialist, and we can make that referral. In a few cases, before our DUI defense can be completed, a domestic violence charge may be lodged. This will greatly complicate any driving under the influence case.

Larry Kohn, AVVO superstar criminal law attorney has been working with William C. Head since 1996, when he was a law student. The Georgia Super Lawyer and repeat annual nominee to the Best lawyers in America, has successfully handled thousands of criminal cases.

Have all your paperwork from the time of your arrest and booking in front of you when you call our DUI lawyers. That will tell our attorneys near me which municipal court, state court, probate court or recorder’s court your case is docketed in. Few DUI cases are every docketed in federal courts, leaving Georgia’s state courts to process this criminal cases.
