An experienced DUI attorney will work to insure that your rights are protected and navigate you through the legal process to try to obtain the best possible result for your case. Sometimes that means obtaining a favorable plea deal, sometimes that means taking the case to trial.
A charge for driving under the influence (DUI) in Georgia is a serious charge with severe penalties.

An attorney will also help you weigh the pros and cons of challenging your DUI at trial or accepting a plea.
