DUI Process

Seventeen years ago in July of 1995, Richard Lawson started his career in the Union County District Attorney's Office. Right away, he was given immediate DUI trial experience. He became an expert in Georgia DUI laws and procedures. If you are arrested for DUI in Union County GA, your case will originate in one of two places. If you are arrested within the County limits, outside of the City of Blairsville, you will have your initial arraignment in the Union County Probate Court. If, however, you are arrested inside the City limits of Blairsville, you case will originate in the Blairsville Municipal Court.

When you are arrested in Union County GA, your case will begin in the Probate Court. This does not mean anyone has died. In smaller counties throughout the State of Georgia, the Probate Court also handles the misdemeanor traffic offenses, possession of marijuana and shoplifting. The reason your Union County DUI case will be heard in Probate Court is a matter of population. It makes perfect sense to have one Judge do two jobs in a smaller county. As a result, your case will be arraigned in the Union County Probate Court. However, you can only have a trial by judge (bench trial) or plea bargain in the probate court. In the event you want a jury trial in your Union County DUI Case, your attorney will bind the case over for a jury trial in Union County Superior Court. Hiring a defense lawyer will insure that your case is properly resolved in your favor.
