I have to go to pre trail Monday morning but I don't want a public defender how can I get a continuance to hire a private attorney
You were likely arrested over the weekend. The City of Atlanta schedules every DUI, Disorderly Conduct, and similar charges the Monday after arrest. Generally, you will be asked if you would like to have time to consult with and hire a private lawyer. They won't automatically give you a PD, unless of course you ask for one. Feel free to reach out to us or other lawyers on AVVO if you would like more details on how the process works tomorrow morning. Most of us can at least guide you through what to expect tomorrow AM.See question
I have a 2 citations - DUI. & DUI. "less safe" which i obtained from jail . What is the difference between the two?
Under ocga 40-6-391 (a)(1), DUI less safe indicates a police officer believes you were a less safe, less skillful, less capable driver because of alcohol consumed prior to driving. The state will use evidence of driving, performance on roadside tests, manifestations, etc...to demonstrate you were less safe. Make sure to contact an experienced DUI lawyer to discuss your case. Most of us are happy to chat and offer a free consultation. Good luck.See question
