30 Day Warning

If you have been arrested for DUI in Blue Ridge GA, you only have thirty (30) days from your arrest to appeal the automatic suspension of your Georgia driver's license. Saving your license is the first step of your DUI defense. This can be accomplished by filing a letter requesting an administrative license suspension (ALS) hearing or by installing an ignition interlock device on your vehicle. Our Blue Ridge DUI Attorneys will walk you through both options to determine what is best for your case. A failure to request the hearing or install the device will result in a license suspension. However, if you refused the State's testing of your blood, breath, or urine, the suspension will be for twelve months.

Blue Ridge DUI Defenses

When charged with DUI, many people think they are out of options. However, this could not be further from the truth. There are numerous Georgia DUI defenses we can use to bolster your case, and with our help, you may be able to avoid having a DUI on your criminal record. Some of the most common ways to challenge a DUI arrest include:

  1. Was there a valid reason to initiate the original traffic stop?
  2. Was the Georgia Implied Consent Notice read correctly?
  3. Were the Field Sobriety tests appropriately executed?
  4. Did the arrest result from a roadblock and did the officer follow procedure?
  5. Did the officer have probable cause to arrest you for DUI?
  6. If a chemical test was done, was there a proper chain of custody for the blood or urine?
  7. Was your vehicle lawfully searched?
  8. Did the breath test machine work properly?
  9. Does the officer have a disciplinary record?
  10. Was the driver informed of their right to an outside chemical sobriety test?

This list is not all-inclusive. These are just some arguments we could make if they applied to your case. However, there are numerous other defenses we can raise after we know the specifics of your case. Every case is different, and we will advise you of your options after we have thoroughly researched your situation.
