Understanding Criminal Charges of Drunken Driving
Being charged with a DUI can be very stressful and confusing. You may have questions that can only be answered by a professional. Contacting a qualified Johns Creek DUI attorney will help you find answers to the important questions. Will I go to jail? Will I lose my license? How much will my fine be? These questions are very common and an experienced DUI attorney will be able to guide you through the DUI process and explain your options concerning your case. Getting legal representation as soon as possible following your arrest is critical for a positive outcome.
If you decide to do nothing and just go through the legal process without experienced representation you dramatically increase the chance for conviction and the harsh consequences that accompany a conviction. If your DUI charge involves injury, death, drug possession, or a minor, you face serious potential consequences. Contacting the Law Offices of Richard S. Lawson will help improve your chances of a good outcome in your case.
