If you drive in or near the metro Atlanta area, there are several things you should know about DUI vehicle stops and subsequent arrests. Many drivers are unaware of the rights they have when stopped by police for suspicion of driving while impaired, such as the right to refuse consent for certain tests and the right to have your sobriety evaluated by an adequately trained law enforcement officer. It is important to be aware of such rights not only for possible future interactions, but also if you have been arrested and are facing DUI charges. The consequences to your driver's license, the other penalties you might face and the ultimate outcome of your case are greatly influenced by what happened during your arrest. This section contains information regarding what you should know about interacting with the police as well as how field sobriety and chemical tests work and what may happen to you if you refuse to take one. If you have been charged with driving under the influence, please contact me so that we can discuss your arrest in detail and determine the most relevant issues we might raise in crafting a legal strategy for your case.
