Athens DUI Attorney

Time Is Of The Essence After A DUI Arrest

A charge of driving under the influence, also referred to as drunk driving, carries penalties such as jail time, fines, license suspension and increased auto insurance premiums. The mere idea of facing a DUI charge is scary in and of itself.

Time is of the essence after a drunk driving arrest. You only have 10 business days to initiate the proceedings that can protect your license.

If you were arrested for DUI, it is likely you have been provided with a notice of a driver's license suspension. You have only 10 days to appeal your suspension.

At the Law Offices of Adam M. Cain, LLC, we represent students at the University of Georgia (UGA) and individuals throughout Athens who were charged with DUI or other alcohol-related charges. We handle administrative driver's license suspension hearings in addition to the criminal charges.

We Represent Good People — Like You — Who Are Facing Charges

Many people arrested for DUI have no prior record and little or no experience with the criminal justice system. In addition to finding the most favorable way to resolve your charges, we provide counsel and guidance throughout the legal process. We do our utmost to let you know what to expect.

Representing First-Time And Repeat Offenders

In Georgia, a person convicted of DUI or other types of serious driving offenses three or more times within a five-year period is considered to be a "habitual violator."

With each conviction, the sentence imposed is mandated by statute which leaves the judge with little or no discretion on the sentence handed out. If convicted, a habitual violator will have his or her license revoked for five years.

If you have been charged as a habitual violator, you need an experienced trial lawyer to handle your case. You cannot afford to be unrepresented. Contact attorney Adam M. Cain to schedule a free initial consultation. We can be reached through our contact form or by calling 706-395-5480.
