As criminal defense attorneys we can help you challenge the charges, but it is important to understand the law of DUI is complicated and there are several different ways you can be charged for the same offense of Driving Under the Influence.

Appealing a Criminal Conviction in Georgia

So things didn't go as you hoped they would at trial. What now? In a criminal case, if you try your case and lose, you have an automatic right to appeal your conviction. Although you have a right to an appeal, you must take action to invoke that right and you must do so quickly. A Notice of Appeal or a Motion for New Trial must be filed no later than thirty days after you are sentenced, or you may lose the right to appeal forever.
