Driver's License Suspension in Georgia
Marietta DUI Lawyer Protecting Your Driving Privileges
DUI conviction will limit your freedoms in a number of ways, including your
ability to drive. Even a first-time conviction can result in your driving
privileges being suspended for one year. Fortunately, license suspension
is not a foregone conclusion after an arrest for DUI.
If you have been charged with driving under the influence, the Marietta
DUI defense lawyers at
Henrickson & Sereebutra, LLC can help you keep your license. They have more than 40 years of combined
legal experience in a wide range of criminal cases. In addition, the attorneys are

field sobriety tests. When it comes to DUI charges, they can offer the
legal guidance you need.
Fight Your Charges from the Start
The fight to keep your license begins the moment of your arrest. After
being charged with DUI, you have 10 days to schedule an administrative
hearing with the DDS, where the facts of your case will be reviewed to
determine if you can keep your license. If you do not successfully argue
your case, you will have your license suspended. Your license will be
automatically suspended if you refused to take a chemical test, or if
you did not schedule a hearing.
A first DUI charge can result in one year of suspended driving privileges.
Subsequent suspensions will be three or more years in duration.
Additionally, the duration of your suspension may be extended for any of
- Your recorded BAC (blood alcohol content)
- Underage DUI
- Refusal to take a chemical test
Fortunately, you do not have to face an administrative hearing alone. An
experienced criminal attorney can accompany you to the DDS and provide
the representation needed to ensure that you keep your license. While
a successful administrative hearing will not affect your court hearing,
it will bring you that much closer to maintaining your freedom on the
road, and will give your criminal defense lawyer the opportunity more
time to develop a strong defense for your case.
