Hall County has a population of approximately 179,684. Founded in 1818, the county has a total area of 429.19 square miles. The county is located on the outskirts of Atlanta and is a rapidly growing community. Hall County is often called "The Jewel of Northeast Georgia." Located along the shores of Lake Lanier and the Chattahoochee River in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the county is truly a lovely site. Even today it remains very rural. Unfortunately, however, even in this lovely, peaceful place individuals can be arrested.
How the Law Offices of Richard S. Lawson Can Help
After you are pulled over and discovered to have a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08% or higher, you can are charged with driving under the influence (DUI). This offense is either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the circumstances. Being charged with DUI is a frightening experience, and if you do not act quickly, your future can be jeopardized by these charges. The Law Offices of Richard S. Lawson handles all nature of DUI charges, including drugged driving charges (see drugs & DUI).
The firm believes that no one should have to wade through the DUI process alone. Every individual charged with DUI deserves an advocate on their side advising them of all their options and fighting for their rights! Not only does someone charged with DUI need skilled legal representation in court, they also need advice and guidance if they choose to set up an ALS hearing. An ALS hearing must be set up within 10 days of being charged with DUI and is a hearing with the DMV in which an individual can fight to have his/her driver's license suspension overturned.
If you refused to take the breath test you should seek legal help, as this is often considered incriminating. An experienced attorney will be able to examine the evidence and will know whether to opt for a plea bargain or to head into trial. If you have prior DUI convictions, you could especially be in trouble. The court does not take these circumstances lightly. There are also other situations that can make an already confusing and overwhelming time, more complex. When out of state drivers get a Georgia DUI they are often uncertain as to what they should do, since they do not live in our state.
At the Law Offices of Richard S. Lawson, the first thing we do is examine whether or not a third party could have contributed to your DUI charges. If you have a health condition, this could have adversely impacted your field sobriety test or blood & breath test results. Also, sometimes police officers fail to conduct roadside checkpoints in a legal manner, and if this is true, an individual's DUI charges can be dismissed.
