Automatic License Suspension (ALS)
Act Quickly to Save Your License — Call (912) 385-0854 Today
If you are pulled over for a suspected DUI in the state of Georgia, you can expect the police officer to eventually request that you submit to a chemical test. While you are curbside, it is likely that you will only be able to take a breathalyzer test but there are also blood and urine tests that could be conducted elsewhere. If you fail your chemical test, you could automatically lose your driver's license through an immediate suspension. You do have the legal right to challenge the legality of an automatic license suspension, however, but statutes of limitation only allow you 30 days after your arrest to file for a hearing.

Temporary Permits and Fighting Suspension
If you have been arrested for a suspected DUI, the police officer may confiscate your driver's license and provide you with a temporary permit. While this may initially seem harmless, this form of automatic license suspension can actually severely damage your freedom of mobility. There may be multiple legal avenues you can pursue to protect yourself, though.

As a former prosecutor, Attorney Schneider knows how to anticipate and dismantle the prosecutor's strategies while always keeping your best interests and legal rights in focus.
