Law enforcement in the Johns Creek area has been given the specific task to get "impaired drivers" (people suspected of DUI) off the road and to assist prosecutors with gathering evidence to convict them. These officers are highly motivated, and the prosecutors involved carefully track their “conviction percentage.” You are definitely “just another number” when it comes to DUI arrests. The goal is to get convictions, not to insure justice. Determining your actual guilt or innocence is not the main goal of the police and the prosecutor.
You have been arrested, and now they want to convict you of the charge. Never attempt to face a DUI charge without assistance from an attorney. You are facing jail time, fines, community service, a suspended license, and the personal damage to your reputation. You are facing the humiliation and embarrassment of a lifetime criminal record. At The Law Offices of Richard S. Lawson the legal team is exceptionally qualified to provide you with skilled legal representation to defend your right to drive and your freedom. Your best defense begins here.
The Defense You Need
Many law firms offer DUI defense to potential clients. However, most of these firms are not exclusively focused on DUI defense, and may just advise you to plead guilty. They will charge you for that advice though very little actual legal service is involved. Our firm is focused exclusively on DUI defense and has 20 years of dedication to fighting for the rights of clients charged with all types of offenses!
Don't try to navigate your way through the DUI process alone, we can help you with any questions, concerns or uncertainties that might be plaguing you! Whether you want someone on your side to help you fight to overturn your suspended license in an ALS hearing or are unsure of what will happen to you next if you refused to take a breathalyzer test, we have the answers you are looking for!
DUI cases are very complex and sometimes it is better to pursue a plea bargain rather then head into trial. Also, whether or not you have prior DUI convictions can significantly affect your case and change the penalties you might face.
If you received a DUI as an out of state driver, this can especially be a headache. The Law Offices of Richard S. Lawson will do everything within its power to represent you, so that you do not have to make any unnecessary trips to Georgia.
Did you fail your field sobriety tests or blood & breath tests? Do not fear, there could still be defenses that could prove effective! A health condition or a mechanical error could have caused you to fail these tests, and we can help reveal this in court!
Were you charged with DUI in a legal roadside checkpoint? Over the past year, more and more cases have been thrown out in court because police officers were cutting corners or failing to carry out proper protocol during a DUI checkpoint.
While a drugs & DUI charge is similar to a regular DUI charge, it is less objective in the sense that you are not considered impaired because of a set-in-stone blood alcohol content (BAC) level. Nonetheless, many of the same penalties apply, so it is imperative that if you are suspected of smoking marijuana before driving, or if you were found in possession of drugs while driving that you seek legal assistance immediately!
A suspended license can significantly impact your life- from getting to school, to getting to a job, to picking up your kids. With a skilled DUI defense attorney on your side, however, you can fight to have your driving privileges reinstated. You have 10 days after being arrested for DUI to set up an ALS hearing and to convince the DMV that your suspended license should be overturned.
Were you charged with a DUI and under 21? Charges pertaining to a minor in possession of alcohol are serious offenses that could affect your educational and employment opportunities and thus your future. Or were you charged with a DUI while violating your probation terms?
Whether there are aggravating factors, such as you committed vehicular homicide, child endangerment or caused an accident and serious injury, or not, any DUI charge is serious and requires expert, aggressive legal representation.
