Did you get arrested or charged for a DUI and have questions? Check out these 3 DUI tips for guidance, then give our Georgia lawyers a call to get started.
1. Timeline for a DUI Case
A friend of mine called the other day. His daughter got a DUI ticket, and he was wondering how long it would take, because this particular child was looking to go to school and leave the area. There really is no typical time for a DUI. Every case is different. If it is one that doesn’t require motions to suppress or other complicated litigation, you should be able to have your DUI resolved anywhere from three to six months. Again, every case is different. I would love to talk with you about your specific matter.
2. Defending Yourself in a DUI Case
I was recently talking with a client who had some pretty significant financial problems, and he asked me if he could defend himself in a DUI case. I certainly would not recommend that. DUI law is very technical and, believe it or not, it changes sometimes every six months, depending on what the Supreme Court or the Court of Appeals is doing in that area of law. It would not be advisable to represent yourself in a DUI, and I would love to speak with you about this.
3. Cost of a DUI Attorney
We often get questions about how much it costs to hire a defense attorney in a DUI case. The cost can vary depending on the exact situation, but, in general, a DUI will cost anywhere between $2,500 and $3,500.
