DUI Defense Representation in Statesboro

The firm can represent individuals facing virtually all types of criminal charges including DUI. If you have been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or higher then you face an administrative license suspension (ALS). It's important that you understand that after a DUI arrest, you have just 15 days to schedule your DMV hearing, this is the hearing where the future of your license will be decided upon. If you want to retain your driving privileges or at the very least minimize your license suspension, it's critical to have legal representation at this hearing as well as your criminal hearing.

Contrary to popular belief, when you are arrested for DUI, you don't have to give up and take your punishment. The firm's attorneys are extremely good at challenging every aspect of a DUI case including the field sobriety tests, the breath & blood tests and the traffic stop. Whether this is your first DUI ever, or if you are facing charges for a multiple DUI, a felony DUI or an underage DUI, the firm can provide you with a top-notch defense. Although most DUIs are prosecuted as misdemeanors, there are certain aggravating circumstances that can enhance your DUI penalties and incur felony charges.

Criminal Defense Services in Statesboro

The firm's attorneys have been working in the field of criminal law for over 40 years. Over which time they have personally handled minor misdemeanor to serious violent felony cases in both the state and federal courts. If you are facing criminal charges for assault or battery, or domestic violence, then you need an aggressive and meticulous criminal defense attorney fighting in your corner. These crimes can be prosecuted as misdemeanors or felonies, so don't be fooled into believing that facing an assault charge or a domestic violence charge will simply go away. Due to the fact that there are often no eyewitnesses to these types of charges, it will be your word against your alleged victim's. Even if you're completely innocent or were acting in self-defense, sometimes alleged victims can display a rather convincing testimony – one that could put you behind bars for something you didn't do.

In Georgia, drug crimes are punished severely and many of them are prosecuted as felonies. For example, while possession of an ounce of marijuana in many other states is a misdemeanor, in Georgia marijuana possession of 1 oz or more is a felony offense! Drug crime penalties depend on the type of drug, the quantity and what you intended to use it for. Typically, possessing a small amount of a drug for personal use incurs lighter penalties than possessing a large amount for distribution, or manufacturing something such as methamphetamines with the intent of distributing the drugs.

When an economy is in trouble, it's not uncommon for people to commit more theft crimes for the purpose of survival. While being unemployed doesn't make it right, it's not a bad idea to have your defense attorney explain your side of the story. Theft crimes include: shoplifting, auto theft, burglary, robbery and many more. How one is prosecuted depends upon the value of the goods stolen, whether or not they used a weapon to commit the crime, whether or not anyone got hurt and also whether or not they have a criminal record. These are all factors that will go into criminal sentencing, and no matter what you are being charged with, it's absolutely vital that you hire a good lawyer to cross-examine the eyewitness testimony and question any evidence against you.
