Georgia DUI FAQ

What does driving under the influence mean?

In Georgia it is unlawful for a person to drive a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, drugs, a combination of drugs, or a combination of drugs and alcohol to the extent that the person’s faculties to drive a motor vehicle are impaired.  If you are charged with DUI anywhere in Georgia, the State must prove all the elements against you beyond a reasonable doubt.

What evidence is used to convict someone of DUI?

In DUI cases, the police officers gather several types of evidence during their investigation. This evidence includes but is not limited to:

  • Driver’s conduct
  • Driving infractions
  • Results of any field sobriety tests
  • Breath, blood, and urine samples
  • A driver’s own statements

Do I have the right to remain silent?

If you are pulled over on suspicion for DUI, you have the right to remain silent.  You must provide your driver’s license.  You must also step out of the vehicle if requested by the officer.  It always helps to be courteous to the officer, but you are under no obligation to answer any question that may hurt your case. Remember, you are innocent until the State of Georgia can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you are in fact guilty.

Is it important to get a lawyer quickly in a DUI case?

Yes, if you are facing an administrative suspension, you only have thirty days to contest that suspension. The sooner we are involved in your defense, the sooner we can begin preparing a defense.

What can happen to you if you are convicted of DUI?

A DUI conviction can have potentially life altering consequences. If your arrest for a DUI is your first DUI offense, a conviction could result in a fine, jail time, a loss of driving privileges, and new insurance requirements. Legal representation is important to protect your rights.
