Expert DUI Lawyers in Cherokee County GA
Aggressive Representation Against DUI Charges
A DUI arrest is not a DUI conviction! As your DUI defense attorney we will complete a thorough review of your case to aggressively fight your DUI arrest, and keep it off of your record. If your DUI involved other charges, you will be glad to know that the Grisham, Poole & Carlile law firm specializes in all aspects of criminal defense.
From the moment you were arrested for DUI the clock has been ticking against you. In Georgia, your driver’s license will be automatically revoked unless you manage the situation according to the 30 Day Rule (formerly the 10 day rule). This is one of the first things that we address for every client.
Don’t Lose Your Driver’s License!
When you are arrested for DUI, the officer is required to physically take your driver’s license and issue you a temporary driving permit. The officer files a State form named DDS-1205 Sworn Report which starts the process to fully revoke your driving privileges.
If you lose your license under the provisions of the 30 Day Rule (formerly the 10 day rule) you have no ability to appeal or request additional time. As DUI lawyers we can represent you at your civil hearing to request the return of your driver’s license. Don’t lose your license! Call us now at 678-880-9360!
After Your DUI Arrest
Every action you take after your arrest should be to fight and win because a conviction stays on your record for life. If you are convicted of a DUI, your arrest will cause your auto insurance to skyrocket, may cost you your job, and will certainly cause some long lasting issues. After your arrest, the police will work with the prosecutor’s office to build a case to present in court, convict you, and ask the judge for stiff punishments. Hiring a DUI defense attorney allows you to get control of your situation.
DUI Traffic Stop and DUI Arrest
There are both civil and criminal elements to a case based on driving under the influence. The criminal legal process is virtually impossible to navigate without an attorney. There are critical deadlines, specific paperwork, different courts, and the daunting task of reviewing evidence and the arrest procedure. The prosecutor's office is not going to help you, but we will.
After your arrest, your anxiety and worries will increase until you transfer the heavy burden to your DUI lawyers.
After your arrest, the absolute best thing to do, is to contact DUI attorney Ross Grisham or Scott Poole who can explain the DUI process to you, including the possible results, and costs to fight a DUI in Georgia. The Grisham, Poole & Carlile Law Firm will make all reasonable efforts to work with you on payments for legal services, and scheduling convenient times to meet. We accept cash, checks and credit cards.
DUI Sentencing in Georgia
In Georgia, there are rigid DUI Sentencing Guidelines which the court will apply to your case if you are convicted. Georgia has a formal Risk Reduction Program which must be completed by anyone convicted of DUI, BUI, possession of illegal drugs or underage possession of alcohol while operating a motor vehicle. Review of this information will clearly show you why it is important to hire a competent attorney and fight DUI charges in Georgia.
