Jessica Towne has been winning awards and critical acclaim for defending DUI and serious traffic cases since 1995. Ms. Towne knows a DUI charge is a serious, life-changing event. Prosecutors in Gwinnett strictly enforce DUI and other serious traffic laws and the mandatory punishments that follow a conviction or guilty plea. Aggressive, effective and thorough DUI defense is a complicated area of the law that is best performed by a local, experienced lawyer who focuses her practice on DUI defense.

The successful defense of a DUI charge requires more legal and technical challenges than most murder trials. The DUI laws in the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (OCGA) comprise forty pages, and growing. Trial courts and appellate courts regularly issue new opinions on a wide variety of DUI issues. The law is constantly evolving. Every year the Georgia General Assembly changes driver’s license, DUI trial or DUI sentence regulations. A DUI attorney must stay abreast of the changes or risk a client’s case.
"The first thing a person with a DUI charge needs to do is appeal their license suspension," says Ms. Towne. "If, when you were stopped for DUI, the officer kept your driver’s license and gave you a temporary driving permit, your license has been suspended and you now have 10 days to appeal this license suspension. Check your wallet or purse now! Don’t bury this paper!"
