DUI: Driving Under the Influence: Due to Helen having Octoberfest/ Oktoberfest, as well as many tourists during the rest of the year, there are a fair amount of Driving Under the Influence arrests by local law enforcement. Georgia’s DUI Laws are tough and have long-term ramifications. A Georgia DUI Lawyer can challenge the stopping of the car, the police procedures used and the BAC results that could help win your case. Having a DUI Lawyer for your DUI charge helps clarify the issues that the prosecution may or may not be able to prove in court.
Marijuana Possession: Marijuana is still a serious matter in Georgia. A conviction can result in a license suspension, fines, probation and potential jail time. A lawyer can help review the case and either seek alternative sentencing that can save a license or challenge the case in court by attacking the vehicle stop, the procedures used by police, and the testing done.
Traffic Tickets/ Speeding Tickets: A speeding ticket or other traffic citation can cost large amounts of money, and the additional effects on insurance and driver license points can make the matter even worse. Sometimes a lawyer can get the fines and/ or the charges lowered just by letting the prosecutor know that the ticket may become a contested trial or legal hearing. Additionally, many tourists do not want to return to Helen to simply fight over a ticket. Sometimes a lawyer can appear on the client’s behalf to enter a favorably negotiated plea.
