Athens Law

My husband was arrested in Lavonia, GA for DUI. Your website says to get an attorney in the county of arrest, there are none. What is the closest city or town to hire a reputable attorney who will know the layout of local law in Lavonia? My husband has a previous DUI in 2000 in Tennessee. His court date is 5/19/14. He is charged with DUI .217, open container and failure to maintain lane. We will need to make payments on an attorney. His NC license was taken and he was given a 30 day permit.
Just search on Avvo for lawyers in that area. There are a lot of good lawyers around there (make sure they are licensed...
PO tomorrow. Is jail a probable. Outcome if he cannot pay. How. Long? The DUI took place in Oglethorpe co. 1 car accident in which he sustained serious injuries.
No, if he does everything probation asks of him and his only problem is with paying the fines, they will usually work...
2nd DUI in 5 years. Was told to surrender all tags under my name but the car I drive is owned by my mother. Do I surrender the tag to the car I drive though it is not under my name? How does this affect my ability to attain a limited permit? In the process of getting an interlock device installed. Already completed DUI classes and evaluation and in a treatment program now.
You only would be required to surrender tags in your name, so don't worry about it.
I got a 2nd DUI last May and should be eligible to get a limited permit by now. I have completed the 20 hour DUI classes. I have a few concerns about attaining a limited permit: I have not surrendered my tag yet; was told to hand it to my probation officer. Do I have to turn it in before I have the device installed? I'm not sure how this works. Do I have to apply for a new tag before I can have the interlock device installed? How long will this whole process take?
That delay may cause your suspension/ reinstatement date to be extended. Get back with your skilled DUI attorney and...
What is the best way to go about handling the situation? What is the best thing that can happen? If he pays these tickets can he still be brought to court?
Your friend should confer privately with an attorney at this time so that she/he may counsel your friend on the wisest...
I took a drug test last month and my next appointment is in 3 days. I had taken an adderall a few days before being tested. I've been on probation 7 months and it was my first drug test. Will they immediately arrest me when I show up to my appointment?
If you are prescribed the medication, then you should not be arrested. However, if you were taking this prescription...
Best friend recently got 1st DUI in Georgia. Resides in Georgia. No priors of any kind. Refused roadside breathalyzer. Took all roadside field sobriety tests. Was arrested. BAC measured at the jail. BAC registered .21. Athens. She has already hired an atty to submit appeal letter to DDS, and it will be submitted within the 10 days. I'm a paralegal. I know that DDS automatically suspends your license, based on roadside breathalyzer refusal and .21 BAC. What are her odds of prevailing at DDS admin hearing and obtaining a permit to drive? I read that Senate Bill 236 (effective Jan 2013) will even help 2nd in 5 convictions, using Interlock Ignition device and alcohol treatment as leverage to obtain a permit for work, court, comm. serv., etc. Odds at DDS AND in Superior Court case?
The lawyer is in the best position to answer these questions. However, you are incorrect -- the roadside refusal has...
