As with every court, Gwinnett Courts have their own operating procedures so it is helpful to have an attorney who is familiar with the court. If you have been charged with DUI in Gwinnett, it is important to speak to a lawyer who specializes in DUI cases so that you can aggressively defend your case from the start. One of the very first deadlines that you may encounter in your DUI case is the 10-day letter. You may have read about the 10-day letter online. The 10-day letter is the letter that you need to send to the Georgia Department of Driver Services so that you may request the appeal of the administrative suspension of your license. Usually a driver that is arrested for DUI will receive a document entitled "Temporary Driving Permit." At the bottom of the document it should be noted as the GA DDS FORM 1205. One of the most common errors made by individuals that have been charged with DUI in Georgia is to wait until the end of the 30-day temporary permit to speak with a lawyer. Once 10 business days have passed after the date of your arrest, it is usually too late to file for an appeal of your administrative driver's license suspension.
