If you are arrested for DUI (drunk driving) in Georgia, you may have only 10 business days to request a hearing or your license will be suspended!

When you need the finest DUI lawyer on your side, call Lon Kemeness!



Georgia’s Driving Under the Influence (DUI) “Per Se” laws make it a crime to operate a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol level of .08% or higher.

Even if your driving ability is not compromised, you can be arrested for being above this “Per Se” limit.



Field sobriety tests are completely voluntary – you cannot be punished for declining to take them.

If you are arrested after failing these tests, it’s never too late to challenge those results!
