New Judge in Atlanta Municipal Court

Posted by Richard Lawson | Jan 15, 2013 | 0 Comments

Do you need an Atlanta DUI Lawyer?

As of January 14, 2013, a new judge is now hearing the DUI Cases in Atlanta Municipal Court. If you are arrested for DUI in Atlanta Georgia, your case will start in courtroom 5A.  Court generally starts at 8:00 a.m.  If you are late, you can be held in contempt.  This new judge has made it clear that he is a no-nonsense person.  In fact, he held an attorney in contempt for his telephone going off in court.

As with before, the cases will move fast in the city of Atlanta.  Your Atlanta DUI Lawyer will have to file for discovery and make all decisions within 60 days of your initial court date.  Then, the case will either have to resolve in the municipal court or be sent to Fulton County State Court for a jury trial. That is why it is important to hire your DUI Lawyer in Atlanta as soon as possible.

In addition, Atlanta DUI Lawyers only have 30 days to file for your ALS Hearing or to install an ignition interlock device.  If your DUI Lawyer in Atlanta Georgia does not request a hearing, you will lose your drivers license. That is why it's so important to hire your Atlanta DUI Attorney as soon as possible.
