DUI And Drug Crime Defense
Drunk driving and drug offenses are among the most widely charged crimes in Georgia, but if you are the person being charged, there’s nothing routine about the experience. Drug crime and DUI penalties are harsh, and a conviction can negatively affect your life for years even after you have paid your fines or served any jail time.
Never forget that you have the right to a defense. It’s wise to seek out help from an experienced criminal defense attorney to make sure you have the strongest, smartest defense you can.
Experienced In Defense
I have been practicing as a lawyer for nearly 30 years, and have helped many clients defend their rights, their licenses, their finances and their freedom. With my office, Blalock & Everhardt Law Firm, in Cartersville, Georgia, I help people in cases involving issues such as:
- First offense DUI
- Repeat offense DUI
- Felony DUI
- Accident-related DUI
- Suspended license
- Drugged driving
- Drug possession
- Drug possession with intent to sell
Conviction on these charges can cost you your license, your car, your job or even your family. With this much at stake, it is crucial that you seek out help from an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
More so than any other crime, DUI charges can involve people from all walks of life. For many people, an arrest on DUI charges represents the first time they have ever experienced the criminal justice system up close. The experience can be overwhelming, and it’s easy for someone in that position to make a mistake that will have lasting consequences.
It is imperative that you speak to a criminal defense lawyer as soon as you can after you are arrested. If possible, do so before you speak to the police.
I defend the rights of people who are accused of drunk driving offenses, giving them honest, informed advice, and representing them at hearings in court and with the Georgia Department of Driver Services.
Drug Crime Defense
Drug charges often come about as a result of DUI arrests or other traffic stops. When police find illegal drugs in the car during a traffic stop, something that might otherwise result in a traffic ticket can develop into a serious case. If they find more than a specified amount in possession, the law assumes that the person intended to sell it, bringing distribution charges on top of other charges.
The penalties in these cases can be extreme. If you are facing drug charges, it’s urgent that you seek out help from a criminal defense lawyer.
