Highly Reviewed Marietta DUI Lawyers Determined to Fight for Your Interests - Strong DUI Representation You Need:
We have handled thousands of DUI cases, had hundreds of DUI arrests reduced to reckless driving and other non-DUI traffic offenses, and tried over of one hundred DUI Jury Trials. Unlike other Marietta DUI lawyers, we have valuable Not Guilty Jury Trial Experience, which is rarer than you might realize. Ask other lawyers when was the last time they heard a jury say the words "Not Guilty" in a DUI Trial. You will be surprised how many so-called "expert DUI lawyers" cannot give you a straight answer.
There are Two Different Courts, Two Separate Suspensions, and the Ten-Day Letter. After a Georgia DUI arrest, if your breath or blood alcohol registers over .08 within three hours of driving, or you refuse a state administered chemical test of your blood, breath or urine, Georgia DUI law requires that you be issued a Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) Form 1205 as well at a Criminal Court summons or a Uniform Traffic Citation for DUI. The DDS Form 1205 is a 30 day temporary driver's license, but it is also a notice of intention to suspend your driver's license, as the arresting officer has sworn that he had reasonable grounds to arrest you for DUI. more

The proliferation of the Internet
markedly changed and continues to influence how our society uses and
consumes information. Since information can be so
easily collated, as Annemarie Bridy, a Idaho College of Law
professor, notes on abajournal.com, “what's public record is now
not only public, it's going to be publicized,” i.e. your mugshot. more
An Marietta DUI is Serious and Can Result in Jail Time, Fines, and Lengthy License Suspensions - DO NOT Try to Represent Yourself:
Under Georgia law for a first DUI you can be fined up to $1000.00 with 100% tacked on as court costs, spend up to 12 months, do 40 hours community service, be subject to drug and alcohol testing for one year and serve 12 months of reporting probation. Your license can be suspended anywhere from 120 days to 5 years. Do not try to handle your DUI without an experienced Marietta DUI attorney.
Advice as to who you decide to hire as your Hampton DUI lawyer: 1) Don’t hire a DUI lawyer based solely on price. Sometimes the cheapest lawyer--especially if they plea you to a DUI you don't deserve at the first opportunity--can be the most expensive. Cost per hour is the best way to compare lawyers. If a lawyer charges $1000, but only spends an hour on your case, that's $1000 dollars an hour! We, unlike bargain basement firms, spend an average of 15-20 hours on every DUI case. 2) Ask any attorney that you speak with whether he/she has tried any DUI jury trials and how many not guilty verdicts he/she has received in the past 2 years; 3) Ask any attorney that you speak with whether he/she has studied police field sobriety training manuals and breath test machine, owner's and area supervisor's manuals. If not, they cannot adequately cross examine DUI police officers or breath test operators. A DUI lawyer who can't answer these questions is not ready for a real DUI jury trial and is not worth your time and money.
