You have 30 days to act!

We can both schedule and represent you at an ALS hearing, and we have assisted over 4,900 clients to resolve a DUI charge over our years in practice.

Our lead attorney, Richard S. Lawson, is not only a former DUI prosecutor - he has trained other DUI attorneys on strategies for winning a DUI case, and is an instructor at the Institute for Continuing Legal Education. The depth of understanding and skill that our firm brings to the table can be of great benefit to you in your case. In all DUI cases, there are two separate issues that must be addressed. The first is the automatic suspension of your driver's license, which is handled through the DMV, not the criminal court system. Even if you are completely innocent of the charges, your license will be suspended if you do not take immediate action. Our firm has years of experience helping clients retain their legal right to drive, and in presenting evidence to in the administrative hearing at the DMV.

The Politics of DUI Charges in Georgia

DUI has become a political hot potato. There is ongoing pressure from groups such as MADD, and lawmakers continue to increase penalties and law enforcement continue to try to increase the numbers in DUI arrests, and many people find themselves in the position of facing charges for DUI and drugs or alcohol related DUI and the suspension of their driver's license as an automatic part of the process. The first and most critical step to take is to get legal representation immediately after your arrest, and prior to discussing any aspect of your case with anyone. You have the right to remain silent, and it is important that you exercise this right, as it may be possible to get your case dismissed and through our actions, retain your driver's license and your legal right to operate your vehicle.
