Driver's License Suspension in Georgia

Paulding County DUI Lawyer Protecting Your Driving Privileges

A DUI conviction will limit your freedoms in a number of ways, including your ability to drive. Even a first-time conviction can result in your driving privileges being suspended for one year. Fortunately, license suspension is not a foregone conclusion after an arrest for DUI.

If you have been charged with driving under the influence, our Paulding County DUI defense lawyers at Henrickson & Sereebutra can help you keep your license. We have more than 75 years of combined legal experience in a wide range of criminal cases. In addition, our attorneys are certified by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for completing a course for DUI detection and administration of the standardized field sobriety tests. When it comes to DUI charges, we can offer the legal guidance you need.

Fight Your Charges from the Start

The fight to keep your license begins the moment of your arrest. After being arrested for DUI, you have 30 days to schedule an administrative hearing with the DDS, where the facts of your case will be reviewed to determine if you can keep your license. If you do not successfully argue your case, you will have your license suspended. Your license will be automatically suspended if you refused to take a chemical test and if you did not schedule a hearing.

A first DUI charge can result in one year of suspended driving privileges. Subsequent suspensions could be longer.

Additionally, the duration of your suspension may be extended for any of the following:

  • Your recorded BAC (blood alcohol content)
  • Underage DUI
  • Refusal to take a chemical test
  • Refusal to take a chemical test

Fortunately, you do not have to face an administrative hearing alone. Our experienced criminal attorneys can accompany you to the DDS and provide the representation needed to ensure that you keep your license. While a successful administrative hearing will not affect your court hearing, it will bring you that much closer to maintaining your freedom on the road and will give your criminal defense lawyer the opportunity to develop a strong defense for your case.
