30 Day Warning

You only have 30 days after your DUI arrest to protect your driver's license from being suspended. To prevent the suspension, you must either file a letter requesting an Administrative License Suspension (ALS) hearing or install an ignition interlock device on your vehicle. Both of these approaches should be discussed with a Rome GA DUI Attorney before you make a decision. However, if you have been charged with refusing the blood, breath, or urine test, your license will be suspended for one year. To protect your Georgia' driver's license, call us now.

Driving Under the Influence in Rome GA

All throughout Georgia, it is illegal to drive a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Due to the danger a drunk driver poses to other drivers, passengers, or pedestrians, Georgia has imposed very strict laws punishing those convicted of DUI. Because the rules and legal procedures related to DUI cases do not favor those accused, it is important to have a skilled Rome GA DUI Lawyer asserting assist with your defense. We will make sure your rights are protected and present a robust defense for your case.

DUI Sentencing in Rome GA

One of the most asked questions our office receives is what punishment will they be facing if convicted. Unfortunately, we cannot predict exactly what consequences you will face. Many factors go into the punishment. The circumstances of your case, the evidence in your case, the number of prior convictions, your BAC (blood alcohol concentration), and whether there were any injuries all play a part in your sentencing. When you contact our Rome GA DUI Lawyers, we will explain all of your possible outcomes and discuss how we will combat every aspect of the prosecutor's case against you. We will work hard to make sure you receive a favorable ruling from the court.

DUI Penalties in Rome GA

There are drastic long-term consequences for DUI convictions. Even though it is a misdemeanor conviction, the penalties are severe. Having a criminal record can impede future employment opportunities. Also, a license suspension is a possible penalty and is a significant problem for most people. Additional repercussions include things such as hefty fines, court fees, ignition interlock devices, or a drug or alcohol treatment program. However, hiring a Rome GA DUI Lawyer who will aggressively represent you can help reduce the penalties you face.
