Palmetto Law

I have a DUI in another state in 2005. I am facing a current DUI in GA and they are trying to make it 2 in 10yrs instead of 1st in 10yrs. Doesn't Georgia law count second in 10 years for anything after 2008 or is it prior arrests also?
It will be your 2nd in 10 years if you plea or get convicted. No getting around this. You most likely need to speak...
I received a Second DUI in GA because it was in a 10 year period. I want to seal the 1st DUI in NV because they allow that within a 5yr period. to make sure that doesn’t affect the outcome of the most recent received in the state of GA.
My guess is that you will not be able to seal the DUI in NY, now that you have a pending charge elsewhere. I'd suggest...
I got a DUI in 2012. The case was moved to Fulton County and I have not been to court for it yet (I have heard this can take awhile in Fulton County.) In 2013, I received a second DUI and went to court and I'm now on probation for it. Although I have not been to court for the first DUI, I was charged with the second DUI like it was a second DUI (They found out about my first one.) My question is: If and when my first DUI comes up, will it be charged like my first DUI or will I be charged like a second DUI twice?
If you plead guilty to the DUI or go to trial and are found guilty of the DUI, you will be treated as a 2nd DUI...
3 nights ago I looked down at my phone because it beeped (I was not texting) on my street and accidentally hit the curb at my house. The officer saw it so he pulled me over but by the time his lights came on I was literally already parking. I am terrified of this DUI charge and if this can somehow ruin my life. When I was taken into custody and put into jail the officer made me blow into a breathalyzer and said if I refused he would suspend my license for an entire year. I blew a 0.13. Is there any way possible for me to have this DUI charge reduced or dismissed? I am completely overwhelmed and lost as how to fight it or what to do in this situation other than hire an attorney. I am wondering what the worst they will do to me and if there is a leniency to first DUIs?
You'll need a good lawyer if you want any shot at getting this reduced or beating the case. There are numerous ways to...
My cousin was pulled over on Monday and charged with a DUI. He does not speak any English so he refused all tests, field sobriety and blood alcohol test. He was taken to jail and released the same night. Since there were no tests administered what could be a possible outcome; it's his first offense. Thank you.
Since he refused all tests and field sobriety evaluations, he has a good chance of beating the DUI. He should speak to...
