Whether you are facing a first time offense or have been charged with multiple DUIs, our experienced attorneys can fight for the best possible result for your case. We understand the serious DUI penalties that are involved if you are convicted, so we will stop at nothing to defend you. In cases of DUI manslaughter, leaving the scene, or of a third or subsequent offense within 10 years, you could face a felony DUI charge and possibly be sentenced to time in prison.
Our Atlanta DUI lawyers have experience with all kinds of DUI cases, including representing out-of-state drivers charged with DUI in Georgia. We can build a strong defense against your charges based on police misconduct, poorly conducted field sobriety tests, or faulty breath and blood tests. DUI cases also involve administrative DDS Department of Driver Services issues. If you need to pursue driver’s license restoration, our attorneys can represent you at your ALS (Administrative License Suspension) hearing.
Even before being convicted or pleading guilty in criminal court, drivers accused of driving under the influence face an administrative license suspension from the Georgia Department of Driver Services. This suspension may occur regardless of whether the driver tested over the legal limit or opted to NOT be tested, thereby refused to take a chemical test of breath blood or urine altogether. The accused driver has ten business days to request an administrative license suspension (ALS) hearing to appeal this automatic license suspension.
The State considers being on probation in Georgia a privilege. However, probation can be a blessing and a curse. If you are on probation in Georgia and get charged with an addition crime, you could face serving the remainder of your probated sentence in jail or prison in addition to the penalties associated with a new charge.
When probation is granted, it is important that the probationer follow all requirements outlined in their probation conditions carefully. Failure to follow these general or special conditions may create serious complications. Whether you are serving probation in replacement of a jail sentence or your probation is a part of a split sentencing, it is important that if you are being accused of probation violation, that you contact an attorney. At Jonathan W. Johnson LLC, we can untangle the mess created by probation violations in conjunction with new charges. We will make sure that your rights are protected!
