Solutions And DUI Defense
Even a first-time DUI has the potential to impact your life in ways you may not have imagined. In addition to possible jail time, there are thousands of dollars in fines, hours of community service and the likelihood you could lose your driver’s license.
It is important you take this charge seriously and work with an attorney who you can trust has the experience and skill needed to fight for your rights and for the best possible outcome. If you are facing a repeat or multiple DUI offense, the sentencing is even stiffer — including up to months of jail time. Don’t trust the outcome to chance or to a lawyer who is inexperienced.
Traffic Violations Can Impact Your Future
While traffic violations may not seem like a big deal to many people, they can quickly create a serious problem. With every violation you get, points are added to your record. If you receive enough points, your license will be suspended or revoked. Reinstating your license is difficult and expensive without the help of a skilled lawyer.
To fight a citation, you must know exactly where the citation was given and where it must be fought. It is important your attorney know these courts and how to work with the correct people to achieve the best possible outcome. Attorney Lanier has spent decades working in local courts and establishing relationships.
Additional License Issues
Child support — Your license could be suspended or revoked for not paying child support. Getting the license reinstated is expensive, adding financial strain on the circumstances that are preventing you from making child support payments.
Underage DUI and traffic violations — College students face additional obstacles in dealing with traffic violations and DUI. A BAC of just .02 will earn a DUI charge for anyone under 21. Even with the best possible criminal outcome, a DUI conviction can create issues at your university or college. Attorney Lanier represents students and faculty facing university (including Georgia Southern University) disciplinary committee hearings.
