My friend was pulled over last weekend in suspicion of DUI, but when he only took one shot and when he was tested at station, he got below the level of DUI but put in jail for a day anyways( which is possible I hear). My friend asked a lawyer to hear his case and his total lawyer fee amounted to be near 7000dollars. I felt bad for him getting pulled over, because he really was basically giving me a ride, but I don't understand how expensive this is. Is this normal????

I have a DUI in another state in 2005. I am facing a current DUI in GA and they are trying to make it 2 in 10yrs instead of 1st in 10yrs. Doesn't Georgia law count second in 10 years for anything after 2008 or is it prior arrests also?

I got a DUI in 2012. The case was moved to Fulton County and I have not been to court for it yet (I have heard this can take awhile in Fulton County.) In 2013, I received a second DUI and went to court and I'm now on probation for it. Although I have not been to court for the first DUI, I was charged with the second DUI like it was a second DUI (They found out about my first one.) My question is: If and when my first DUI comes up, will it be charged like my first DUI or will I be charged like a second DUI twice?
If you plead guilty to the DUI or go to trial and are found guilty of the DUI, you will be treated as a 2nd DUI...
3 nights ago I looked down at my phone because it beeped (I was not texting) on my street and accidentally hit the curb at my house. The officer saw it so he pulled me over but by the time his lights came on I was literally already parking. I am terrified of this DUI charge and if this can somehow ruin my life. When I was taken into custody and put into jail the officer made me blow into a breathalyzer and said if I refused he would suspend my license for an entire year. I blew a 0.13. Is there any way possible for me to have this DUI charge reduced or dismissed? I am completely overwhelmed and lost as how to fight it or what to do in this situation other than hire an attorney. I am wondering what the worst they will do to me and if there is a leniency to first DUIs?
You'll need a good lawyer if you want any shot at getting this reduced or beating the case. There are numerous ways to...
