Posted by Richard Lawson | Jul 02, 2012 | 0 Comments

College Park GA has long had its own court system and police force, but within the past year now has a prosecutor on behalf of the city enforcing DUI and MIP (minor in possession of alcohol) offenses. In the past, if you were charged with DUI in College Park, you could attempt to work things out with the police officer. Now, there is a prosecutor who is a lawyer trained in DUI law and enforcement. There are certain statutory requirements associated with even a first College Park GA DUI including 12 months of probation, 24 hours of jail at a minimum, DUI school, a drug and alcohol evaluation and any recommended treatment and a suspension of your drivers license. A College Park GA DUI lawyer can help you unravel these items and get the best possible results. Sometimes, our lawyers can get the DUI charges reduced to reckless driving or dismissed if there was no probable cause to arrest or a legal basis to stop. Each case is different so if you feel that you have a defense, call our law office today to discuss the options. Even if you know you were DUI and you just want to avoid jail and keep you license, our College Park attorneys can help you get the best results.

Though we are a law office focusing on aggressive DUI defense, we also have helped thousands over the years with traffic offenses such as hit and run, driving on a suspended license and reckless driving. For CDL drivers especially, even a traffic ticket for something like failing to maintain a lane or anything that results in an accident can be deterimental to your job and may even cause suspension or termination. Let us help you. If we cannot negotiate a favorable outcome in the City of College Park Municipal Court, we will demand a jury trial and bind the case over toFulton County State Court for motions and trial.

If you have already resolved a case and have a friend or loved one in trouble with their probation officer, our DUI lawyers can help. Probation violations are not to be taken lightly as they can result in serious jail time.
