Facing a driving under the influence (DUI) charge is an intimidating experience. A drunk-driving conviction can lead to jail time, a suspended driver’s license, expensive fines, probation, a possible ignition interlock on your vehicle, higher insurance rates and a permanent criminal record. Due to constant legislative changes, DUI law is an increasingly difficult minefield for general practice law attorneys to navigate. When you are accused of violating the law, you need an attorney who studies and understands Georgia DUI laws inside and out. DUI laws in Georgia constantly change. There have been multiple decisions by the Georgia Supreme Court on DUI laws almost every year. It takes a true DUI expert to keep up with all the changes. While many attorneys are willing to take DUI cases, very few study DUI defense like Pete Young.

You have 30 days from the date of your arrest, and failing to request a hearing within this timeframe may result in the loss of your right to challenge license suspension. Early involvement by a skilled attorney can make all the difference in whether an effective defense can be mounted on your behalf.
