Aggressively Defending Your Rights and Freedom
If you were arrested for DUI in Georgia, you driver's license was probably taken and you were given a DDS Form 1205. This form allows you to keep driving, but only for the next 30 days. At the end of that period, your driver's license will be automatically suspended — unless you request an administrative hearing within 10 days of your arrest.
The 10 day rule applies if:
- You are 21 or older and you blew .08 or higher
- You are under 21 and you blew .02 or higher
- You are a commercial driver and you blew .04 or higher
- You refused the breath test
It is critical for you to request the administrative hearing and obtain representation from an experienced DUI defense lawyer. Without a strong and effective defense effort, you could be convicted, resulting in the loss of your driver's license, sharply higher insurance premiums and a possible jail sentence.

Lawrenceville DUI Defense Lawyers
Daniels & Taylor, P.C., is a criminal defense law firm with extensive experience in DUI cases. When you hire us, we will undertake a comprehensive defense effort on your behalf.
By requesting an administrative license hearing, we can prevent the suspension of your license, at least until the hearing and possibly longer. Our firm can also use the administrative license hearing in other ways. We will of course, try to prevent the suspension of your driver's license. In addition, we can use the hearing to get the arresting police officer to commit to certain facts that could be of use in the criminal phase of your case.
Regarding the criminal charge, we will carefully examine the facts, to determine whether the state has sufficient evidence for a conviction. It may be possible to obtain a dismissal of the charge or reduction to a non alcoholic driving offense if these or other factors apply:
- The police did not have probable cause to stop you.
- They failed to follow proper procedures when conducting the field sobriety tests.
- The breath test results are not admissible in court.
- The police failed to inform you of your rights.
In a free consultation, an attorney at our firm can review your case and discuss possible defense strategies with you.
