Franklin County DUI Attorney

(404) 816-4440

If you or someone you love has been arrested and charged with DUI, you have real reason for concern. The penalties for DUI are extremely harsh in our state, and even a first DUI offense can lead to expensive fines (up to $1000), jail time (up to 12 months), and the requirement to serve 40 hours minimum community service. You will also be facing higher insurance rates, once your period of license suspension is over. This can be up to 1 year without the legal right to drive. Our legal team is exceptionally qualified to take action for your defense. Whether this is your first DUI, or you have had DUI's in the past, it is important to hire an attorney as soon as possible. You only have 30 days from the date of your arrest to file a 30 day letter to save your drivers license. If you do not file your 30 day letter, your license can be suspended for up to one year.

Our founding attorney, Richard S. Lawson, is a former DUI prosecutor, allowing us to have a deep understanding of the DUI process and how to best navigate the justice system for our clients. Our firm is focused exclusively on DUI defense, and we have resolved over 46,000 DUI cases.

A DUI has both the criminal issue, which is handled in court, and the license issue, which is addressed in ALS hearings. We represent our clients in both issues. We are very familiar with the potential areas of challenge in blood & breath tests. We represent individuals accused of child endangerment, charges involving drugs & DUI and DUI under 21, and all other DUI-related charges. Our founding attorney is certified as an instructor in field sobriety tests and can easily identify the common errors in administration of these tests. We can assist in defending a Georgia DUI by out of state driver, marijuana cases, as well as charges involving minor in possession of alcohol, and help visitors to the Franklin County area in out of state DUI charges.

If you have questions about a plea bargain vs. trial, you deserve straight answers. Allow us to evaluate your case and we can advise you about the consequences and the different choices you may have in your case. We can help you defend against accusations involving prescription drugs & DUI, defend those with prior DUI convictions and are accused of refusals/alleged refusals. We defend people who were charged at roadside checkpoints, and can help with the issues surrounding the automatic suspended license. We also fight for the defense of clients who are accused of committing a violation of probation, and in the most serious of felony DUI offenses, vehicular homicide charges. Whether you are facing a 1st DUI, 2nd DUI, 3rd DUI or are facing felony charges, you have the right to an attorney. Make it a good one.
