Let us fight against conviction and fight to save your driving privileges.
Communities in and around Atlanta are often given the distinction as some of the most "car dependent" neighborhoods in the United States. For many local residents, the ability to drive is vital for all aspects of everyday life. If you are a driver who has been arrested for DUI, your license is subjected to an automatic suspension, even for your first offense. You have 30 days from the date you were arrested to schedule a hearing with Georgia Department of Driver Services or install an ignition interlock device to preserve your driving privileges.
This process is separate from the arraignment and other criminal hearings required by the Municipal Court. We will handle the administrative license suspension hearing with the DDS as well as all preliminary court appearances for you. Our goal is to minimize the total effect this arrest has on your life, in addition to securing the best possible legal outcome. If you live in a different state, we will take every step possible so that you are only required to make a single court appearance.
