DUI Attorney in Gwinnett County
During the ALS hearing, a hearing officer will determine the following:
- Were there reasonable grounds at the time of the arrest to believe that the client was under the influence?
- Was there any injury, accident or fatality that occurred at the time?
- Was the client informed properly of implied consent rights and what would happen if the client refused to be tested for alcohol or drugs?
- Did the client refuse to be tested for alcohol or drugs?
- Did the test register above the legal limits (.08% for adults, .02% or above for 21 years of age and .04% for a licensed commercial driver)?
If police procedures are not correctly followed in the arrest or in the testing or if the testing equipment was not used or maintained properly, there may be grounds for challenging the suspension of the client’s driver’s license. An attorney from the firm can bring these matters before the hearing officer.
