DUI: Driving Under the Influence: Jackson County’s location near I-85, makes for a fair amount of Driving Under the Influence arrests by local law enforcement. Georgia’s DUI Laws are tough and can have very long-term ramifications. A Georgia DUI Lawyer for Jackson County can challenge the stopping of the car, the police procedures used and the BAC results. Having a lawyer helps clarify the issues that can be fought over and potentially won in court or through negotiation.
Marijuana Possession: Marijuana is still a serious matter in Jackson County, Georgia. A drug 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 for an out-of-state driver can be a major hassle. Traffic tickets can cost a large amounts of money, and have additional effects on insurance and license points. Sometimes a lawyer can get the fines and/ or the charges lowered just by letting the State Court prosecutor know that the ticket may become a contested trial or legal hearing. Likewise, an out-of-state driver can sometimes have a matter concluded without the need to appear in court.
