Stone Mountain DUI Attorney

If you or a loved one has been arrested for Driving Under the Influence (DUI) in Stone Mountain, you only have 30 days from the date of the arrest to submit an appeal letter to stop the suspension of your license. This is known as the 30 Day Rule, and the letter drivers must send is called the 30 Day Letter.

If you have been charged with a DUI in Georgia, you can choose to send a 30-day letter or install an ignition interlock device to save your privilege to drive. It is in your best interest to refrain from making a decision until you have spoken with a Stone Mountain DUI Attorney. The 30-day letter requests an Administrative License Suspension (ALS) Hearing to try and prevent the automatic suspension of your Georgia driver's license. The ALS Hearing is separate from the DUI proceedings. A failure to send in the letter will result in an automatic suspension of your license for up to a year.

Stone Mountain DUI Defenses

We never recommend pleading guilty without hiring a DUI Attorney in Stone Mountain! There are numerous DUI defenses we can use to strengthen your case no matter the situation. Police officers are human too and make mistakes, and we will ensure that your rights were protected before, during, and after an arrest. Some of the Stone Mountain DUI Defenses we can use to bolster your case include but are not limited to:

  1. Failure of officer to comply with Georgia law on blood and breath testing
