As a multi-service law office, we provide criminal defense as one of our many services. Criminal defense law is much different than civil law because the possible outcome for the client is incarceration. We offer result-orientated defense for all criminal charges, and promise to represent our clients to the fullest extent.
North Georgia residents charged with driving while intoxicated (DUI) require legal representation. This is a very serious charge and the assistance of an attorney will be able to help in your defense. The State of Georgia takes driving under the influence very seriously, and even first-time offenders can face incarceration as part of their punishment.
The State of Georgia can impose a jail sentence of up to one year for a first time offender. In addition, they can require you to perform 40 hours or more of community service, pay a fine of up to $1,000, and suspend your driving privileges for up to a year. Repeat offenders face additional punishment such as required participation in a treatment program and ignition locking devices.
What Our DUI Law Firm Can Do For You
If you are facing a DUI charge, our firm can zealously represent you before the court. We will evaluate many factors of your case, including the validity of the roadside sobriety test and the arrest report that was prepared by the officer. We will review the entire process to determine if the arrest was in compliance with the law, which could affect the charges being placed against you.
If everything is in accordance with the law, our law firm will look at the circumstances surrounding the arrest and work to make sure that the punishment you receive is just and not excessive.
