Providing Legal Options Following A DUI Arrest

If convicted, the DUI penalties in Georgia are serious. To complicate matters, you have only 10 days to attempt to avoid a driver's license suspension. It is likely that the Department of Driver Services (DDS) started processing the suspension shortly after your arrest.

To avoid this suspension, you must request an ALS hearing with the DDS. Doing this without the legal guidance of an experienced DUI defense attorney is a grave mistake. There are several layers to contesting or pleading guilty to a DUI charge on the civil and criminal level. Whether it is your first or your third charge, the process should not be viewed lightly, and a knowledgeable lawyer must be consulted.

Choose An Experienced Drunk Driving Defense Attorney

I am Lynne Fleming, and I have nearly 20 years of experience vigorously defending clients who have been charged with a wide range of crimes — from speeding tickets to homicide. When you call the Fleming Law, PC, you speak directly to me. Listening with compassion and without judgment, I take my clients' cases seriously, dissecting the incident in an effort to ensure that their arresting officers followed each procedure correctly.

"Thanks for how you resolved my case. At first I was a little mad because I wanted to get out on that day. But now I realize that this alcohol program that you helped me get into was where I needed to be." — Michael Wilson

  • Around 40 hours of community service
