Henry County DUI Defense Attorney

Drinking and driving is a serious criminal offense across the state of Georgia. If you are caught driving with a blood content level of .08 (if over the age of 21), then you could be arrested for a DUI. This number is reduced to .02 for under 21 drivers and .04 for commercial drivers. What this means is that even one small glass of wine with dinner can end up costing you your license if you blow over.

The best defense when faced with any DUI arrest, whether it is happened before or not, is to contact a McDonough DUI defense lawyer as soon as possible. You may think that if you pay the fine and agree to the terms and conditions of the arresting officer,  everything will be fine. However, you could be faced with a 12 month license suspension, jail time and a permanent mark on your record, even if this is your first offense.

Tom Barton can help you with any DUI related charge, from multiple DUI arrests to first time arrests. Whether you are under the age of 21 or over, whether you are from out of state or local, whether you are facing a misdemeanor or felony offense, Mr. Barton can help minimize the damage and the penalty. You have ten days from the time of your arrest to challenge the charges and protect your license.
