    Kimberly’s Answer

    I do not do post conviction relief, but I do agree that a great post conviction attorney could help your friend's mom. Time is of the essence- which means your friend must work quickly to try to get help. I am happy to recommend experienced attorneys who do this kind of work. Please have your friend call or email me so that I have a better understanding of the facts and can recommend the appropriate attorney.

  • My boyfriend was sentenced to 10 years for Voluntary Manslaughter back in 06. His Attorney told him due to the fact this was his

    first crime he would only have to do 6.5 years. That will be 12/2012. But I just checked his tentative parole date & it said 06/2015. He will be 25 in Nov & his counselor told him he will be released by age 25. Also he was transferred to a county ...

    I disagree with the above attorney that advise you to call his original attorney. We can only guess as to the parole guidelines when someone is sentenced because they are changing and can change after the sentence. It sounds from what you are describing that they are preparing to release him from custody to parole. It is very important that when he is released that he complies with all the conditions of his parole. If there was any probation to follow his prison time, he needs to report for that as well. Good luck tom him.

  • Am I able to file a motion to present additional information in support of my case as a defendent on getting my probation

    terminated five months early?

    Kimberly’s Answer

    As attorney, we often file motions to terminate probation early. I often try to negotiate early termination of probation in the original plea agreement. Once the motion to early terminate is filed and a date is set for a hearing, your lawyer is able to present testimony/evidence to support terminating your probation early. Some of the considerations are: length of probation, remaining time on probation, successful completion of all conditions of probation, all fines and fees paid, no additional problems with the law, and the support of your probation officer. All of these play a part in the grant or denial of termination.

    You have some great arguments for why you are not guilty of this ticket. It is your decision whether you want to spend the time and money to achieve a good result. An attorney can help you navigate the situation for a hopefully a better result. An attorney could also save you time by getting you a better result without you missing work to attend court.

    2 DUI convictions are a lifetime ban to a CDL driver's license even if they were not in a commercial vehicle. If you have only arrests and not convictions then you may be able to achieve a CDL license.

    Kimberly’s Answer

    You will need to reinstate your insurance and your tag asap. Then hire a lawyer to negotiate a resolution for you in the county/city where you were charged. This situation comes up a great deal. Unfortunately, if you try to plead to suspended registration, it will further suspend your license for a year. Call our office at 770.919.9525. We have a lot of experience with these types of cases.

  • I have been to court once for my dui and that was a year and 4 months ago.

    Does the court not have a time limit to prosecute me? it qA dui less safe bc i wrecked my car but was not over the legal limit

    Kimberly’s Answer

    While you time delay from arrest to next court date is a little long for our area, it is not completely surprising. The statute is tolled in Cobb as soon as your tickets are filed with the clerk. A DUI has many difficult consequences that continue long after the case. Each cases factual circumstances are different as well. You should have an experienced DUI attorney for your case. An attorney can advice you on the defenses you have and the possible outcomes. They can also advise you about time frames for resolution of your case.

    Good Luck,

    Kimberly’s Answer

    Give it a shot and plead not guilty. You may get your case dismissed or win a trial. Most likely you are only risking a higher fine.
