How should I proceed after my arrest?

The most important issue for you to be aware of is that after an arrest has been made, you should expect law enforcement and prosecutors to zealously pursue a guilty verdict against you. While in the court of law you are allegedly presumed innocent until proven guilty, this is not the mindset of the prosecution and they will use every small detail to secure a conviction.

If you have been arrested and charged with DUI, follow these tips:

  • Remain silent – Anything that you say could be used against you in court.
  • Request a DMV hearing – You have 30 days from your arrest to preserve your driver's license.
  • Contact an attorney right away – You need a trusted advocate on your side.

An arrest does not mean that you are guilty! Take every opportunity to fight these charges and start working on your defense as soon as possible. Remember, there is no evidence that cannot be fought by a skilled and experienced Atlanta DUI lawyer. That is why our firm is here to help!
