Hiring the right DUI attorney

Georgia law is tough on drunk driving, even if this is the first time you’ve been arrested for a DUI. Regardless of your specific charges, you are facing a range of consequences, and your best chance of defense against a DUI charge in Georgia is hiring a knowledgeable DUI attorney with experience practicing in the area in which you were charged.
