Criminal Defense Overview

A charge of Driving Under the Influence, also referred to as drunk driving, carries penalties such as jail time, fines, license suspension and increased auto insurance premiums. The mere idea of facing a DUI charge is scary in and of itself. However, time is of the essence.

At TW, we represent people charged with DUI. We are aware that many people arrested for DUI have no prior record and little or no experience with the criminal justice system. In addition to finding the most favorable way to resolve your charges, we provide counsel and guidance throughout the legal process. We do our utmost to let you know what to expect.

Please contact us today. We offer a free consultation to discuss your case.

Protect Your License and Your Freedom

One of the most immediate issues you face after a DUI arrest is the suspension of your driver’s license. If you have been arrested for DUI, it is likely you have been provided with a notice of a driver’s license suspension. You have only 10 days to appeal your suspension. We handle administrative driver’s license suspension hearings in addition to the criminal charges.

Representing First Time and Repeat Offenders

In Georgia, a person convicted of DUI or other types of serious driving offenses three or more times within a five- year period is considered to be a “habitual violator”. With each conviction, the sentence imposed is mandated by statute which leaves the judge with little or no discretion on the sentence handed out. If convicted, a habitual violator will have his or her license revoked for five years.

If you have been charged as habitual violator, you need an experienced trial lawyer to handle your case. You cannot afford to be unrepresented.

In every case, whether this is your first offense or if you have multiple violations, we will thoroughly investigate the facts and carefully explain the legal procedures. If the case against you is weak, we will fight to seek a dismissal of the charges, or an acquittal at trial. If a dismissal of the charges or an acquittal at trial is unlikely, our experienced trial lawyers will work to negotiate a plea agreement with the best possible terms. It is essential to remember you are not alone.
