Criminal Defense Attorney
As an Atlanta native I can remember when turning at many intersections wasn’t illegal. This city was a smaller, different place. Many laws have changed as well, but unfortunately behavior hasn’t. Blood alcohol levels for drivers are lower, so some wine with dinner might result in a DUI. Behavior that once might have been excused as a teenage “prank” is now often prosecuted. A 20 year old having a beer at a ball game used to be told to leave the ballpark, but now the teen is cited for underaged drinking and may be arrested under certain circumstances. School and job applications used to only ask for previous “convictions” and now applicants must list any arrest. All of these changes have significant consequences which is why you need an experienced attorney who understands the ramifications, how to get you out of jail quickly and how to best represent you throughout the process.
