DUI ANXIETY? – CHECK OUR FAQ PAGE

Why are There Separate Charges on My Ticket? DUI stands for driving under the influence, and in Georgia there are six different kinds of DUI. Three involve driving under the influence of drugs, one involves inhalants, and the last two, which are the most common types of DUI we encounter in Georgia, are alcohol related. There are two types of alcohol related DUI charges: “per se” and “less safe.”

How to Hire a Lawyer for a Rockdale County DUI

A Rockdale County DUI is Serious and Can Result in Jail Time, Fines and License Suspensions – DO NOT try to DIY a DUI

Under Georgia law, you can be fined up to $1000.00 with up to 40% tacked on as court costs, spend up to 12 months in jail, do 40 hours of 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 Rockdale County DUI attorney. We specialize in DUI.

Advice as to who you decide to hire as your Rockdale County 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.
