I was just arrested for DUI what should I do now?

Dealing With DUI Charges 

If you have just been arrested for a DUI, you need expert legal help. A DUI bears serious repercussions to your life that you may not realize until it is too late. Based on what you agreed to do at the time of your arrest, you may be facing a license suspension before you ever go to court. 

I was just arrested for a DUI.  What do I do now?

Once you have been arrested for a DUI, your next steps are crucial as they can greatly affect the final conclusion to your criminal charges. Your first actions should be to remain silent and call a lawyer from Gillsville Law to begin criminal defense actions on your behalf. 

Without hard-hitting and knowledgeable representation by an experienced criminal defense attorney, you could face:

  • steep fines
  • community service 
  • suspended licenses
  • probation
  • restitution to alleged victims
  • a permanent criminal record
  • long terms in jail or prison. 

Important Things to Know about DUI

In Georgia you only have 10 days to request a hearing if you did not take a sobriety test or if your results are greater than .08.  If you are under 21, you can be suspended for a .02 test result.

Our attorneys have a complete understanding of the training of law enforcement in Georgia.  This knowledge and twenty-three years of prosecuting and defending DUI in Georgia makes Gillsville Law your solution to handling this significant problem. 

If you or a family member has been arrested for a DUI, contact one of our experienced lawyers immediately.
