Being arrested for Driving Under the Influence ("DUI") or Violation of the Georgia Controlled Substances Act (“VGCSA”), can be a stressful and humiliating experience. In addition to the indignity of being handcuffed, photographed, and fingerprinted, a DUI or VGCSA charge can result in jail time, fines, community service, court-ordered substance abuse treatment, suspension of your driver’s license, and increased auto insurance premiums. If you have had a prior conviction for DUI, your picture can also be published in the local paper, and you can be forced to surrender the license plate on any car you own. With the stakes so high, it is vitally important that you hire an experienced attorney to protect your rights and give you the best chance of winning your case.
