    Trying to get other attorneys to second guess your attorney's advice, especially with even less information about the specifics of your case than you have disclosed to your attorney, is foolish. And it would be unethical for an attorney to advise someone who they know has retained counsel. If you are unconvinced of your attorney's advice, consult with him or her to resolve your concerns.

    You should take advantage of a free initial consultation offered by any number of DUI defense attorneys to get fact, court and case specific information. There are studies to predict the long term cost of a first life time DUI. If that is not a consideration, the immediate expenses you should expect are a fine somewhere between $600-$1,000 plus court surcharges, 12 months probation with a monthly supervision fee (usually $44 an month), DUI Risk Reduction Course (about $250), Alcohol and...

    A third DUI in ten years has a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 days to serve, 240 hours community service, $1,000 fine (up to $5,000). Conviction will result in a five-year revocation of his license, but he may apply for a probationary license after two years. There are additional requirements, including ignition interlock and clinical treatment and evaluation. As the out of state attorneys above mentioned, you should have him contact a local DUI defense attorney. Most of us offer free initial...

    If your case is before Lawrenceville Municipal Court or Gwinnett Recorder's Court you should have received a court date before you left court unless you bound it over to State Court. If you bound it over to State Court it will usually take between 4-6 months for them to set a new arraignment date and send you notice by mail. If your case is before another court, you will need to contact the court or consult an attorney to assist you in determining the status of your case. Once a case is charged/...

  5. If the dds suspends yours d.l and you win your criminal case, what do you have to do to get license back?

    If your license was administratively suspended for refusing the State test or for having a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) over the limit and you “win” the DUI criminal charge (acquitted or nolle prossed), you should be able to terminate the suspension and have your driving privileges reinstated by providing DDS with a certified copy, front and back, of the original citation as well as a certified copy of the final disposition in the case (you may need to go to DDS headquarters in Conyers to...

    In typical attorney fashion, the answer is maybe. Your son should find a local attorney who offers a free consultation so he can be advised of his options, the likely consequences and any possible defenses. If your son elects to proceed without an attorney, it is still a very good idea to have some information concerning what he can expect and what to ask for when talking with the prosecutor.

    If I read this correctly, you have two pending DUI arrests. One in which you did not do field sobriety evaluations and a 2nd arrest where you did do field sobriety evaluations. You did not indicate whether you submitted to the state requested test of your breath, blood or urine and you did not indicate whether you were charged with DUI alcohol or another DUI charge (like DUI Drugs). I do not know if you are under 21 years of age or whether you have a Commercial Driver's License (CDL). A first...

    You will need to look closely at the order from the Administrative hearing. Often the officer agrees to a consent withdrawal of the administrative "refusal" suspension in exchange for a plea of reckless driving or, if not reckless driving, then guilty to DUI. The ALS agreement will not be binding on the solicitor in criminal court and they s/he may not agree to reduce the DUI to reckless driving. If that is the case, you have agreed to plead guilty to DUI which will impact your license, but on...

    In addition to the above mandatory sentence, your driving privileges in Georgia will be suspended for one year and Alabama has a 90 day license penalty for a first (out-of state) DUI. If the officer gave you a DDS Form 1205 temporary driving permit/notice of intent to suspend, your driving privileges in Georgia will be suspended in 30 days unless you request a hearing (see the back of the DDS 1205 form) within 10 business days of your arrest.

    You need to consult with a defense attorney experienced in the court where you were originally sentenced (Douglas County) to probation (if you hired an attorney to represent you on the original charge, you may want to call him or her first). The probation violation is likely to be much more serious than the penalties for a second arrest for misdemeanor possession, depending upon how much time you have left to serve. Usually a probation violation requires a local attorney who can advise you on...
