Fulton County DUI Lawyer

As a former prosecutor, Attorney Kim Frye has unique insight into Georgia’s criminal justice system. She’s taken on all kinds of DUI cases, from first-time offenses to felony offenses, and everything in between. In 2008, she started Frye Law Group, where she uses the experience and knowledge she gained as a prosecutor to defend Georgians facing DUI charges. 

At our firm, we understand that DUI arrests are scary and can leave you feeling defeated. However, we’re here to remind you that being arrested does not guarantee a conviction on all charges. We can help you with jail release, explore your legal options, and pursue the best resolution for your circumstances.

DUI CHARGES IN FULTON COUNTY

Determining Intoxication

Georgia issues DUI charges to anyone found operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Officers may determine intoxication by several methods, including field sobriety tests, breathalyzers, or other blood or urine tests. 

Breathalyzers are used to measure a driver’s blood alcohol content (BAC). Minors with a BAC of .02% or higher, adults with a BAC of .08% or higher, and commercial drivers with a BAC of .04% or higher may receive a DUI charge under Georgia law. It’s also important to know that Georgia is an “implied consent state,” meaning that you consent to a BAC test the moment you begin driving a vehicle on a Georgia roadway. Although you may refuse a breathalyzer when you are pulled over, you may face additional penalties and your license can still be suspended. 

Law enforcement officers use a number of other tests and their discretion to determine whether you are driving under the influence of marijuana or other drugs. Their priority is to arrest anyone who is deemed incapable of properly and safely operating a motor vehicle. 

Fulton County’s DUI Penalties

Georgia has extremely harsh DUI penalties. Specific penalties and long-term consequences may vary depending on the court’s discretion and the circumstances of the case, such as the number of prior offenses, your specific BAC level, whether a child was in the vehicle at the time of your arrest, and whether you were involved in an accident (and the severity of the accident). 

Possible DUI penalties and long-term consequences include: 

  • Driver’s license suspension
  • Prison time
  • Fines
  • Community service
  • Alcohol or drug education courses
  • Treatment programs
  • Permanent criminal record
  • High-risk insurance 
  • Confiscation of your vehicle
  • Ignition interlock devices

I love this Law Group, you can trust their work and words. They will do everything in their power to help you win your case, better yet even dismiss it if can. They also work on my husband’s case and even tho they set a date they got it settled way before the date they give, that’s how fast they work. Truly a fast honest working group. I thank them for their awesome work. Definitely recommend.

These are the people who you want to represent you!! Kim, Michael, Brittani, Sophia, etc. thank you all so much for your dedication to your work and caring for others. This was my second case with Kim as my lawyer and she got both of them dismissed (I only went to court ONE time for two cases and didn’t say a word to the judge). This firm is truly amazing at what they do and I can’t thank them enough. If I could rate 6 stars, I would.
