Plea Bargaining in Atlanta Municipal Court

Posted by Richard Lawson | Jan 19, 2013 | 0 Comments

I am often asked about the possibility of a favorable plea bargain after an Atlanta DUI arrest. The short answer is that most cases are settled by a plea bargain, and the Atlanta Court system is no exception.

The Atlanta City Prosecutors have an incentive to work out cases due to the sheer number of DUI arrests in Atlanta. To close all the cases, prosecutors throughout all of Georgia provide those accused of DUI an incentive to enter into a plea bargain.  This incentive can include waiving jail-time, reducing jail time for multiple offenders, and offering shorter drivers license suspension.  This is the concept of alternative sentences.

These potential incentives and favorable plea bargains do not happen on their own.  This is where the skill and knowledge of top-rated Atlanta DUI Lawyers come into play.  Your case will not resolve itself.  You need the skill of a qualified Atlanta DUI Lawyer on your side.  A qualified Atlanta DUI Attorney will help negotiate the best possible plea bargain in your case.

So, it is important to hire the Atlanta DUI Attorneys who know and work in the Atlanta Court System on a daily basis.  Call now for immediate legal attention.  We are here 365 days a year, 24 hours a day!
