About Richard Lawson

Have you been arrested for a 4th DUI in Georgia or Felony DUI in Georgia?

If you have received a 4th DUI in Georgia (since 2008) you are facing a serious felony offense.  You are facing mandatory jail or prison time.  You are facing high fines and loss of your drivers license for 10 years.  This suspension will be on top of any other suspension you are already serving.  Richard Lawson is a Former DUI Prosecutor with more than 20 years experience defending DUI Cases in Georgia.  

However, an arrest for DUI does not mean you are Guilty of anything.  Never assume guilt.  There are defenses to DUI in Georgia.  No person in Georgia is presumed guilty.  In fact, you are presumed innocent if arrested for 4th DUI In Georgia.  There are defenses to your case. There are alternative sentences.  

Those DUI Defenses can include challenging the reason that your were stopped, the probable cause for your arrest, the violation of of your implied consent rights, the actual arrest procedure, and the challenge to the accuracy of the chemical test given in your case ( blood, breath, or urine ).  We can also challenge the accuracy and interpretation of the field sobriety tests used in your case.  Those subject "tests" can be challenged and should never be assumed to be judged accurately.
