DUI: Driving Under the Influence: Due to Dahlonega Municipal Court’s proximity to University of North Georgia-Dahlonega Campus, and various eating and drinking establishments, local law enforcement makes their share of Driving Under the Influence arrests. Georgia’s DUI Laws are tough and can have lasting consequences. It is important to have a Dahlonega DUI Lawyer that can fight the aspects of: the vehicle stop, the police-citizen encounter and the blood alcohol/ BAC results. Many times an experienced DUI Attorney can spot issues that a defendant did not even know existed.
Under 21 Minor in Possession of Alcohol/ Underage Consumption: In our experience, the college students of the University of North Georgia-Dahlonega Campus sometimes consume alcohol before they are twenty-one years of age. If you have been caught, it is a serious matter and it is treated as a crime. It is important to have a Dahlonega Alcohol Lawyer that can negotiate a favorable Pretrial Diversion or Conditional Discharge or fight the stopping of the defendant, the testing of the defendant or law enforcement’s version of events.
Marijuana Possession: Marijuana is still illegal in Georgia and the penalties and license suspensions can make marijuana possession a serious matter. If not handled correctly, even a misdemeanor Marijuana conviction can suspend a driver’s license or permanently scar a criminal record. It is important for an Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney to review the facts and negotiate alternative sentencing or fight the charges in court by challenging the stop, police procedures, lab testing and credibility of the witnesses.
Traffic Tickets/ Speeding Tickets: A traffic citation not only costs a lot of money with the fines and fees, but the long-term effects of a speeding ticket on insurance and driver license points can make these matters costly. Sometimes a lawyer can get the fines and/ or the charges lowered just by letting the prosecutor know that the ticket may become a trial or legal hearing.
With the Georgia Criminal Defense Lawyers at A. Bishop Law, you can rest assured that your Under 21 Minor in Possession of Alcohol charge, DUI, Speeding Ticket or Shoplifting case will be in the right hands.
