  • A DUI charge is one of the most heavily used and frequently received charges in the City of Clarkston. Many people receive a DUI who have never been in trouble.
  • This charge is also the most inadequately represented charge in criminal law for clients. A DUI Criminal Defense Attorney MUST have proper training to assure that the client receives the representation for which they are not only looking but for which they are paying.
  • That is why you need to find a DUI Criminal Defense Lawyer who has the proper training to help you. If handled improperly, a DUI can affect your license, your criminal history, time spent in jail, community representation and many other issues with your life.

The most typical, and frequently used, charge for a DUI is alcohol. Officer’s should have extensive training to properly investigate a DUI charge. A DUI attorney should have the same training as the officer (or more) to properly represent you. This training assures proper representation for you and is another reason that YOU need an experienced DUI Criminal Defense Attorney.

Whenever someone is arrested for a DUI, the officer is required by law to arrest them and retain their driver’s license. The officer then issues a DDS 1205 form. This form is the officer’s notice to you of the officer’s intention to suspend YOUR privileges to operate a motor vehicle. You must write a 30 day response letter to stop the suspension.

Arrests for a DUI charge are made by either the City of Clarkston Police Department or a special division in the Georgia State Patrol called the Nighthawks. These charges are heard at the Clarkston Municipal Court. The Clarkston Municipal Court is located at 3291 Church Street. The charges would be heard in the main courtroom in Clarkston Municipal Courthouse. The judges who would hear that charge is Steve Nicholas or Joe Weeks. A charge for DUI in Clarkston is prosecuted by the City of Clarkston Solicitor Josie Stevens.
