Georgia’s driving under the influence (DUI) laws make it illegal for drivers of all ages to operate motor vehicles if they have blood alcohol content (BAC) percentages of:
- 0.08% or higher, if they’re 21 years old or older operating regular passenger vehicles.
- 0.04% or higher, if they’re operating commercial vehicles.
- 0.02% or higher, if they’re younger than 21 years old.
The penalties for a DUI conviction can be severe and far reaching. Many collateral consequences exist that most people would have never considered. We understand what you are up against, and we will stop at nothing to ensure that your rights are protected.
TEN DAY HEARING
When a person is arrested for DUI the law requires the officer to ask you for a chemical test of your breath, blood, or other bodily substance. If you refuse, your license will be a suspended for one year. If you take the test, and the results are over the legal limits, your license may be suspended for up to one year. You have ten days to request an Administrative License Suspension hearing to challenge this suspension. If you do not make this request you have waived your right to challenge this suspension.
We understand that any legal situation is going to be intimidating and bring added stress to your life. As a result, we are determined to be there for you when you need us most. To schedule an initial consultation call 706-356-0518 or contact us online.
