If you are arrested within the City of Atlanta, your case will either begin in the Atlanta Municipal Court or Fulton County State Court. In Atlanta Municipal Court, the case goes on what lawyers call the rocket docket. The entire investigation of your Atlanta DUI case must be completed within only 2 months. Within those 2 months, almost all of the possible decisions of your case must be made. Hiring the best Atlanta DUI Lawyers in the first step.
At that point your Atlanta DUI Lawyer will have to decide whether to enter into a plea bargain in the municipal court, waive jury trial and have a bench trial in municipal court, or bind the case over to the State Court of Fulton County for a jury trial. The decision to go to trial in the Atlanta City Court or in Fulton County should only be made by a skilled Atlanta DUI Attorney.
Since the case moves so quickly, your case must be investigated as soon as possible. Also, your 30 day letter must be filed in order to protect your right to drive. Without the 30 day letter and ALS Hearing, you will lose your ability to drive for up to one year. So, time is of the essence.
