Whether you have taken the breathalyzer or blood test given by the local police, state trooper, or military police, or not, no DUI charge automatically results in a conviction. There are legal challenges to a charge of Driving Under the Influence of alcohol or drugs many of which relate to whether the arresting officer acted within the law during the traffic stop, arrest, and subsequent testing. There are procedures that the arresting officer MUST follow properly in order for the DUI charge to stand.
The law firm of David Roberts has helped many people arrested for DUI to successfully contest the charge. We provide DUI defense in Muscogee County and surrounding counties of Georgia, including military personnel of Fort Benning or out-of-state drivers arrested for DUI and related misdemeanor offenses.
With Mr. Roberts’ military background, he specializes in DUI and associated driving charges which occur on military installations. Civilians and Military Personnel who are apprehended for DUI and related traffic offenses on a military installation, even those just driving through on a U.S. Highway, are subject to prosecution in federal court. Those charges are prosecuted in the United States District Court or Magistrate Court, rather than a State of Georgia court.
Act Within Ten Days to Protect Your License & Rights
In addition to the State of Georgia DUI charge itself, the State of Georgia’s Department of Driver Services may revoke your driver’s license or privilege to drive on Georgia’s highways unless you file a request for an administrative hearing within 10 days of your DUI arrest and win that administrative hearing.
You must act quickly to protect yourself and your driver’s license. Even if you are licensed by another state, Georgia can still try to revoke your right to drive on Georgia highways. So in either case, requesting the hearing is essential and time is of the essence.
Time is critical and the arresting officer is not likely to advise you about the 10 day issue to request a hearing. The sooner you contact David Roberts, the quicker he can take action to protect your rights and driving privileges.
Your initial consultation with Mr. Roberts will be conducted at no cost to you. During this consultation, you will have the opportunity and time to discuss the details and facts of your case in detail. Your concerns and questions are critical to a defense, so David Roberts spends the time necessary to help you.
