One Of Northwest Georgia’s Top DUI Defense Attorneys
It’s the moment nobody wants to experience — the flashing lights of a police car in your rear-view mirror. The next thing you know, the officer is placing you under arrest on suspicion of drinking and driving.
If this has happened to you, your next move should be to contact Stagg Law Firm. I am attorney Lawrence A. Stagg. Since 1991, I have successfully represented hundreds of people throughout Northwest Georgia against DUI charges. I will give you your best chance of staying out of jail.
DUI Law In Georgia
Georgia law enforcement aggressively pursues DUI arrests. Even if your blood alcohol level is not over the legal limit of .08, a police officer may still arrest you if he or she decides you are “under the influence” of drugs or alcohol.
A clean record will likely reduce the potential penalties for a DUI. Still, after a first conviction the court can sentence you to up to one year in jail, fine you up to $1,000 and take away your driver’s license for a year. You could also be required to take a DUI education course. Depending on the circumstances of your arrest, there could be certain factors that increase the penalties you will face.
Having The Right Defense Lawyer Makes A Big Difference
An arrest is not the end of the world, and it does not automatically mean you will be found guilty of DUI. I have practiced DUI defense for more than 28 years, and I know how to find holes in the prosecution’s case. With me as your lawyer, you can count on reaching the best possible result to your case and minimizing the risk of a jail sentence.
