Can I Have A DUI Conviction Sealed Or Expunged From My Record?
In Georgia, DUIs cannot be expunged.
What Questions Should I Ask When Looking For A DUI Attorney To Represent Me In Georgia?
When looking for a DUI attorney in Georgia, a person should ask where and when they received their law degree, how many cases they have tried, how many DUI cases they have handled in the jurisdiction where their case will be held, and what type of reputation they have in the area. An individual should also look online for reviews and ratings of any DUI attorney they are considering hiring.
Not all attorneys are created equal and not all attorneys carry the same reputation; those who have a reputation of always pleading their cases out and never taking cases to trial won’t likely receive good plea offers from prosecutors, while those who have a reputation of taking cases to trial will likely receive more respect from prosecutors and obtain better offers for their clients.
When looking for a DUI attorney, it’s also important to look for someone who has a good bedside manner, good values and values strong communication with their clients. A defendant should be able to rest assured knowing that if they call their lawyer’s office or send an email, they will receive a response. Lastly, any DUI attorney should be very knowledgeable and truly care about their clients.
What Sets You And Your Firm Apart In Handling DUI Cases?
We’re obsessed with our customers. While many other attorneys are focused on what their competition is doing, we’re focused on helping our customers get through their DUI cases with the best result legally possible, which means at the end of the day, our goals are aligned. At my firm, people are in the office from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM Monday to Friday, which means anyone who calls during those hours will speak to a real person. On the weekends and at night, we have an answering service, which means anyone who calls during those hours will also speak to a real person. In addition, we typically give clients our cell phone numbers and personal email addresses. Clients of ours can expect to receive a response from us within a few hours, or 24 hours at the most. We work with our clients to get the best result possible because we truly care and want them to succeed. If a DUI conviction is inevitable, we try our best to minimize or mitigate any punishment. If there’s a way to factually and legally fight a DUI, we will find it.
