Why You Should Hire an East Point DUI Attorney
Many people are unaware that a DUI arrest sets two separate cases into motion. The administrative case is completely independent from the criminal case. The arresting officer will issue you a DUI citation with a scheduled court date for the criminal case. However, you only have 30 days to request an administrative license suspension (ALS) hearing to contest the administrative suspension of your driver's license. A successful outcome at the ALS hearing means that you retain your ability to drive in Georgia. Then, your DUI Attorney in East Point will work to reduce the punishments in the criminal case as well. Whether this is a reduction in the charges
An experienced East Point DUI Lawyer can represent you in both cases and will ensure your rights are protected during both.
