    the case can be continued as many times as the trial court allows. imho it sounds like there should be no hurry to get to court. have you considered treatment for your sister, the court will be pleased if your sister has used this time wisely to correct any issues.

    Douglas’s Answer

    A bar compliant is a matter of last resort. Contact the attorney by mail (certified) explain to him the problem. Make sure you log all calls and consider e-mail contact. Complete records will show the judge that you have been sincere and working hard to resolve your case. Many attorneys will be apprehensive to speak to you until you have discharged your attorney.

  • Unpaid tickets and license renewal

    Can you renew your driver's license if you have unpaid tickets in Georgia?

    Douglas’s Answer

    renewal of your license will not be possible if the unpaid citations are not resolved. the dds records will almost certainly reflect the unpaid citation. also be aware that an outstanding warrant may be issued.

  • Rehab instead of jail time?

    Is it possible for someone to cope a plea for rehab instead of jail time for dui child endangerment charges?

    Douglas’s Answer

    Very very seldom will this procedure ever work. The State would theoretically have to do this for everyone. Georgia is very aggressive when it comes to prosecuting dui cases. Hire an attorney to navigate this.

    Douglas’s Answer

    My experience is that once you have been cited the DMVS may show that the offense occurred while on a limited permit. If that is the case the DMVS can move to suspend your privileges without a conviction. Once you receive notice file an appeal so that you can hopefully argue that the charge was unfounded.
