Please Call While Your DUI Case is Pending

Posted by Richard Lawson | Jul 27, 2017 | 0 Comments

Once again, we have had a rash of calls where people have already resolved their case and are suffering collateral consequences.

Today someone called and was having trouble getting a job in his or her field. He wanted to see if there was anything we could do about his closed Gwinnett County DUI Case. He entered a guilty plea. There was nothing we could do to help.

He was so distraught about his conviction he then filled out a contact form on the website. Maybe he thought someone else from our office would contact him, or maybe he thought it was another attorney's office.

The issue is that people do not consider the collateral consequences of their case when they attend court without a Georgia DUI Lawyer.

Many people fail to realize that their DUI case may cause the following:

  • Loss of driver's license
  • Loss of job opportunities
  • Denial of a Green Card 
  • Deportation
  • Denial of a citizenship application
  • Loss of education opportunities
  • Loss of future income
  • Increased auto insurance premiums or cancellation
  • Increased life insurance premiums
  • Potential Divorce or marital problems
  • Denial of the opportunity to drive for Uber or Lyft
  • Revocation of probation being served in another case

This all being said, hiring a top-rated Georgia DUI Attorney, does not assure a dismissal or reduction to reckless driving. Any attorney that promises any outcome in any criminal case is potentially defrauding their client.

Our office will investigate your case for all potential Georgia DUI Defenses. We will also try to limit any potential Georgia DUI Penalties. After our investigation, we will fight for the best possible outcome in your case. Regardless of the outcome, you will rest assured that all legal and factual defenses were reviewed and considered.

Remember you only have 30 days to either appeal your license suspension or install an ignition interlock device on your automobile. Please call us before you lose your driver's license.
