Aggressive DUI Defense Representation
The prospect of losing your license when charged with a DWI/DUI or another traffic offense in Georgia obviously comes with a number of questions and concerns; therefore, it’s critical to know the ins and outs of the process, so you can work toward an ideal outcome. Too frequently those charged don’t understand their responsibilities and as a result take actions that substantially impair driving privileges.
At Arnold & Stafford, Attorneys at Law, we’re committed to aggressively defending or brokering a bargain in each case, regardless of whether a client is a multiple or first-time offender.
Accused Of Drunk Driving?
- A person charged with a DWI is forced to schedule an arraignment where his or her attorney makes an appearance prior to an actual court hearing to resolve the offense or take it to trial. An experienced attorney can talk to the prosecuting attorney about negotiating less severe penalties if the case isn’t going to trial.
- In addition, there’s a limited time to schedule a hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). After the hearing is scheduled, drivers receive a provisional license. At the DMV hearing, an officer hears the story, reads the report and questions witnesses, if necessary. The officer, however, is not a lawyer, judge or police officer and the proceedings don’t function with the same standards as in a criminal court.
In both of these scenarios, the right lawyer can make a significant difference in the types of penalties.
We’re also prepared to take on any number of traffic offense cases, including those involving:
- Reckless driving
- Careless driving
- Moving violations
