Cherokee County DUI Information
What to know if you've been charged with a Cherokee County DUI
Heading home after a couple of drinks at ICE Martini Bar in Woodstock and you’re stopped for speeding.

How to Hire a Lawyer for a Cherokee County DUI
A Cherokee County DUI is Serious and Can Result in Fines and Jail Time

Your license may be suspended anywhere from 120 days to 5 years. Do not try to handle your Cherokee County DUI without an experienced Cherokee County DUI Attorney.
Advice as to who you decide to hire as your Athens 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 10 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.
