Driving Under The Influence

Every driver in Georgia makes mistakes from time to time. While a speeding ticket on I-285 will get you a fine and can even raise your insurance rates, a DUI charge can be a life-changing event that involves time in jail, loss of license, fines and other penalties. Some drivers think that they are guilty as soon as they see the flashing red lights in their rearview mirror, but DUI suspects are like any other suspect — they are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

With so much at stake, it is important to find an attorney who has experience working on DUI cases here in Georgia. The Law Office of Miya Griggs has vast experience representing clients facing driving while intoxicated charges. Even if you tested over the legal limit of .08 blood alcohol content (BAC) or deemed under the influence of drugs, there is still hope for a positive outcome. Attorney Miya Griggs has worked in the courts both as a prosecutor and as a defense lawyer, which gives her a unique perspective for handling litigation. She works closely with clients as she aggressively pursues the best possible outcome.

Looking At The Charges

We also understand the protocols and processes involved in these charges to make sure that law enforcement observed them. Some questions an attorney can explore include:

  • Did the officer properly maintain the testing equipment so the reading is accurate?
  • Each field test follows a different protocol. Did the officer follow the correct one?
  • Did the officer have probable cause for pulling over the driver?

Fighting The Charges

As an experienced DUI lawyer, Ms. Griggs will recognize any irregularities in the arrest or charges. Instead of judging her clients, she sits down and listens to their side of the story. She examines the arrest report and conducts additional investigation to help build the strongest case possible. Depending on the circumstances, the charges for DUI can involve time in prison, fines, additional classes and a license suspension. An experienced attorney can be a tremendous asset, particularly in helping drivers get a hardship license, which must be done within 10 days of the arrest.
