Georgia penalties for DUI offenses can destroy your life

You may think that getting a driving under the influence (DUI) charge when you didn't cause an accident or hurt anyone is a minor thing. However, you'd be wrong to assume that. Even first time DUI offenders can lose their license, their freedom and even their job as a result of the charges. Getting behind the wheel after drinking or taking drugs is a mistake, but it shouldn't have to completely change your life.

An attorney can present you with options about how to proceed if you've been charged with DUI. Pleading guilty or being convicted can drastically alter your life. Depending on the circumstances of your arrest, you may be able to mount a rigorous defense against the charges. The sooner you speak with an attorney, the better chance you'll have at a positive outcome to those charges.

Prescription pain relievers can be hazardous to your freedom

It's easy to run afoul of Georgia's drug laws for prescription pain relievers such as such as Vicodin and OxyContin.

One mistake such as carrying a friend's prescription can lead to prosecution and a permanent criminal record.
