Arrested for DUI in Marietta?

Retain a Cobb County DUI Lawyer with Prosecutorial Experience

When alcohol or drugs impair a driver's ability to operate a motor vehicle, and individual could face a DUI charge for getting behind the wheel. A blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 percent counts as an automatic DUI. Lower BAC percentages may also result in a DUI if the driver demonstrates impairment in their ability to drive. This is why it is so important to retain the counsel of a trusted Marietta DUI attorney for your case.

Contact our firm if you are ready to start strategizing your defense.

Blood alcohol concentration is measured by a breath, blood, or urine test. The level of your BAC can also play a factor in the penalties you will face for DUI. Drivers who refuse to take a BAC test may have their driver's license suspended for a year under the Administrative License Suspension law. With such high stakes, you cannot afford to go through this time alone.

Administrative License Suspensions — The 10 Day Rule

After being charged with DUI, your driver's license and privileges will be suspended. To request a new driver's license, you will need the legal assistance of an experienced DUI defense lawyer. An attorney from our firm can guide you through the process as well as provide legal defense to fight your DUI charges in a criminal case.

If you are arrested for DUI in Georgia, you have 10 days to file a notice that you intend to appeal the Administrative License Suspension ("ALS") and request an ALS Hearing. If the request is not filed within that timeframe, then you have waived your right to an ALS Hearing and your license could be suspended for up to one year. It is critical to file this request within 10 days of your arrest for DUI in order to fight your suspension.

Penalties for a DUI depend on the specific circumstances of the case, including the number of former convictions, BAC reading, and if any injury or aggravating factors were involved. First offenses are charged as a misdemeanor with a minimum of 24 hours in jail. Second, third, and further DUI convictions carry more severe penalties.

In addition, the Risk Reduction Program, more commonly called DUI School, is ordered for all DUI convictions. This is an intervention program which aims at changing the drinking or drug use of the driver involved. This program is mandated by Georgia law for individuals convicted of DUI, for underage individuals guilty of possessing alcohol while driving, and for those who are boating under the influence.

All of these consequences can adversely affect your future. That is why it is so important to contact The Glasgow Law Firm for trusted legal assistance.
