By: Atlanta DUI Attorney and Trial Lawyer Larry Kohn, law firm partner representing clients in DUI cases
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.
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 realize their mistake.
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 get panicked calls from people needing help from DUI lawyers near me.
Our law partners offer all callers a FREE consultation since our attorneys in Atlanta know how stressful and confusing this type of criminal charge can be.
Most citizens who are arrested for DUI in Georgia are SHOCKED to learn (from their DUI attorney) that the field sobriety tests given by the police officer were VOLUNTARY, and that their ONLY obligation to talk was to give their NAME and ADDRESS. Plus, because schools don’t teach students their legal rights, most self-incriminate and do EXACTLY the wrong things prior to arrest.
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 promptly.
In a nutshell, the Georgia implied consent statute permits an officer to REQUEST (from an arrested DUI driver) a post-arrest test of your:
(or any combination of these types of tests), to 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.
