Georgia DUI Attorney

Representing Clients Statewide

A conviction for driving under the influence (DUI) has a variety of negative consequences. At McIlhinney Law Group, our Georgia DUI lawyer offers skilled and experienced legal representation to clients who have been accused of driving under the influence. We understand the court system, science behind the breath test machine to show that it can be unreliable, and DUI law to try to exclude, suppress or kick out any unfavorable evidence against our clients.

If you have been arrested for DUI, call (404) 724-5461 for help from a skilled attorney.

Consequences of a DUI Arrest

If your blood alcohol concentration is over .08% or you refuse to take a breath, urine, or blood test, you can be arrested for DUI. At the time of your arrest, you will be given a Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) Form 1205 and either a court summons or traffic citation for DUI. The DDS form is a notice of driver’s license suspension and a temporary driver’s license.

In Georgia, DUI convictions can lead to:

  • Mandatory jail sentences
  • Driver’s license suspension
  • Expensive fines
  • Mandatory community service
  • 12 months of probation

On the back of the DDS 1205 form, there is a place to request a hearing. You must return the form and a $150 filing fee to the Georgia Department of Driver Services within 30 days of your arrest to request an administrative license suspension hearing.

Representation during Administrative License Suspension Hearings

An administrative license hearing will be scheduled between 45 and 90 days after your arrest. During the hearing, a few different things may happen. If the arresting officer doesn’t show up or comes to an agreement with your attorney, the suspension can be dismissed or rescinded. Otherwise, a hearing will be conducted to determine whether your driver’s license will be suspended. Our Georgia DUI attorney can represent you during this hearing and fight to protect your driving privileges.

Please call (404) 724-5461 to get advice from a qualified attorney.
