Georgia DUI Survival Guide
Allen Trapp, DUI Defense Attorney
Most of our DUI clients have never been arrested before. They are often treated like criminals before going to court, beginning at the time of arrest. And the arrest is just the beginning.
Ask tough questions before choosing a DUI attorney.
How will a DUI conviction affect you? What are the consequences of a first, second, third, or fourth offense DUI? If you rent automobiles at airports, drive a company car, or work for an airline or railroad, your livelihood and your family's security are on the line.
Contact a DUI defense attorney quickly to protect your rights.
If you or someone you know has been arrested for DUI, you need to move quickly. Call Allen Trapp, "the Go To Guy for DUI in West Georgia" who centers his practice on the specialized area of DUI defense. In 2005 he was named DUI Lawyer of the Year by the Georgia DODD (Defense of Drinnking Drivers) Group, and after serving on the awards committee for five years, was named DUI Appellate Lawyer of the Year for 2011 for winning an appeal from the State Court of Coweta County.
You need an attorney who understands DUI laws.
A criminal lawyer who does not concentrate in DUI defense may find it impossible to keep up with constantly changing DUI laws or sophisticated DUI defense strategies.
