Atlanta Law

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?
It will be your 2nd in 10 years if you plea or get convicted. No getting around this. You most likely need to speak...
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...

Hire an attorney as soon as possible. Follow your attorney's advice.
I was arrested for DUI while visiting Atlanta in 2005 and never returned to fight the charges due to financial restrictions. I've recently moved from my home state of Michigan and have been told that due to this unsettled charge I cannot get a driver's license in my new home state. I am looking for information on how quickly I will be able to have the case rescheduled so that I can obtain a new driver's license in SC as driving is required for my job. I'll certainly be retaining legal counsel to resolve this matter, but would appreciate any information that the experts here can provide to help me expedite this process. If there are any reputable DUI lawyers in the Atlanta area who can advise me on what to expect, your insight will be greatly appreciated.
It depends on the court. If you were arrested in City of Atlanta, it would be possible to hire an attorney and appear...
My friend got arrested for DUI, driving without license, and trespassing HOV lane all at the same time. He had been tried for driving without license and trespassing HOV lane and he had paid the all the penalties (fees) as asked by the court. But they didn't have any trial on the DUI offense. Can he still be charged for the DUI even after he had been to the court? It seems like the DA didn't file the DUI. Can he get his license back ?Or will there still be license suspension, and if there is how long? This all happen in Fulton county.
Your friend might have a really good issue if the prosecutor tries to go forward on the DUI charge. Your friend needs...
