Anthony Overton Van Johnson & Associates, P.C., has represented clients facing their 1st to 11th DUI charge, including felony habitual violator, serious injury while DUI, endangering a child while DUI, vehicular homicide, DUIs resulting in death and dismemberment, and probation violations. Early intervention could positively affect the outcome of your case and could result in a dismissal or reduction of a DUI charge.
Consulting with an experienced attorney, especially if you have just been arrested, could change the outcome of your case, and in many instances, the law permits only ten (10) business days to take action to protect your driving privileges, and this is long before the criminal charge is heard in court.
We can appeal your administrative suspension; however, we only have ten (10) business days to file the request. Accordingly, you must CALL US RIGHT AWAY to discuss your case (evening and weekend appointments available): (678) 882-7355.
