Atlanta DUI Court Processes

A DUI arrest in Atlanta unfortunately means you will face what can seem like a fairly complicated court process. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be required to appear before the Atlanta Municipal Court several times. This section provides a broad overview of court processes typically involved when one is charged with DUI. I touch upon selecting an attorney, the types of hearings you may experience, and what the expectations of you will be before, during and after trial. I will also discuss the techniques you and your lawyer can employ to possibly reduce your sentence, including the plea bargaining process, and the various types of defenses that can be utilized during trial. It is nearly impossible to predict exactly what the judicial process will look like for each case without knowing the particular background of the person charged as well as the circumstances of the arrest and the current charges.  If you are facing DUI charges and must navigate the court system, please contact me so that we can discuss what the process might entail for you.
