Gwinnett County Recorders Court

Posted by Richard Lawson | Dec 11, 2012 | 0 Comments

I am asked every day, what is the Gwinnett County Recorders Court and why is my case starting there.  The Gwinnett Recorders Court is the court where all traffic misdemeanors, such as a DUI in Gwinnett County, begin.  If you were arrested in the unincorporated areas of the county, your DUI case will be prosecuted in the Recorders Court.

If you are arrested for DUI within the city limits of an incorporated area of Gwinnett County, your case will originate in the Municipal Court of that city.  Examples are:

  1. Lawrenceville Municipal Court
  2. Dululth Municipal Court
  3. Suwanee Municipal Court
  4. Lilburn Municipal Court
  5. Snellville Municipal Court
  6. Peachtree Corners Municipal Court
  7. Norcross Municipal Court

Now, if you are unsatisfied with the outcomes available in any municipal court in Gwinnett County or in the Recorders Court of Gwinnett County, you always have the option to send your case to the State Court of Gwinnett County for a Jury trial, or to continue plea negotiations.  This is an absolute right. Your DUI Lawyer in Gwinnett County will advise you how to proceed.  Your DUI Attorney in Gwinnett County can help you decide whether keep your case in Recorders Court or bind the case over to State Court.

If you have been arrested for DUI in Gwinnett County, contact former Gwinnett County DUI Prosecutor Richard Lawson.  I am here 24/7 to help with your case. As a Gwinnett County DUI Lawyer, I can help you get the best possible outcome in your case.  I am a Gwinnett County DUI Attorney dedicated to your fight and your rights.
