The attorneys at the firm have garnered a reputation for being some of the most successful trial lawyers in the Hinesville and Savannah area, and they earned this reputation by achieving successful case results on behalf of their criminal defense clients.
You're probably wondering, what sets this firm apart from others? This is a very valid question and one that deserves ample attention. While the firm's lead attorney Cris Schneider focuses on criminal defense and DUI defense, he hasn't always worked as a private criminal defense attorney. His early career began in Atlanta where he worked side-by side with a nationally known and prominent defense attorney. While working in Atlanta for 10 years, he represented many high profile and celebrity clients. After relocating to Savannah, he accepted a position as the lead trial attorney for the District Attorney's Office for both Bryan and McIntosh Counties. What's more, he is also a known educator and speaker for prosecutors throughout Georgia. Since moving into private criminal defense practice, he has been able to realize his dream of helping the criminally accused as well as their families.
DUI Defense Representation: Misdemeanor & Felony DUI
Your driving privileges are essential to your livelihood and your ability to care for yourself and your loved ones. There is no question that if you have been arrested for DUI in Georgia, you face the possibility of an automatic license suspension (ALS). Please, keep in mind that you have just 15 days from the date of your arrest to schedule a DMV hearing with the Department of Driver Services (DDS). This is the hearing where the future of your license is addressed and failure to schedule and attend this critical hearing will result in an automatic license suspension.
While the administrative hearing addresses your license suspension, it is separate from the criminal hearing. At the criminal hearing, your defense attorney will not only work to minimize your criminal penalties, but they will also challenge the accuracy of the field sobriety tests, as well as any breath & blood tests. Since these two hearings are critical and directly affect the outcome of your DUI case, it's absolutely vital that you are represented by legal counsel at both hearings. Whether you are being charged with multiple DUI, or underage DUI or felony DUI, the attorneys at the firm have extensive experience in these types of cases and are extremely knowledgeable in every aspect of the DUI process, as well as the Georgia DUI penalties.
