Driver’s License Suspension: Protect Your Driving Privileges With Help From A Local Lawyer
If you have been charged with drunk driving (DUI) in southeast Georgia, it’s important to respond with help from a local criminal defense attorney. Not only will you face criminal charges for allegedly driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, but the Department of Driver Services (DDS) will suspend your driver’s license if you refuse a breath test or were found to be over the legal limit.
At Ashley Miles, P.C., we are a local, Darien law firm with strong ties to the community. We know the local laws, how the authorities enforce them and how to build strong defense strategies that help our clients avoid serious criminal and civil penalties stemming from DUI.
Protect Your Driving Privileges With Help From A Lawyer
The administrative suspension of your driver’s license is a time-sensitive matter. In short, you have 10 business days from receiving the DS-1205 form (ALS Suspension Notification & Chemical Test Report which is usually given upon arrest or once you post bail) to request an administrative hearing. If you fail to meet the deadline, your license will be suspended for 12 months with no possibility of a limited driving permit for refusal suspensions.
We know firsthand how important it is that you retain your driving privileges. Whether you drive for a living operating a commercial vehicle or you need to be able to drive to pick up your kids from school, we can build a strong case on your behalf and pursue opportunities to keep you on the road.
When you reach out to us, we will listen as you explain the circumstances of your DUI. Once we have the facts, we can outline the impact of the administrative suspension and the impact of a criminal conviction. By working together, we can take immediate steps to protecting your driving privileges and building a defense.
