Drivers License Suspensions

Nearly all traffic violations in Georgia can be classified as a criminal offense. Contact Georgia Traffic Attorney Adam D. Brown to have your traffic ticket reduced or dismissed. Not only can a Georgia traffic ticket be expensive, it can also suspend your license or privilege to drive in Georgia.

Traffic lawyer Adam D. Brown is frequently asked what offenses will result in the suspension of a Georgia driver’s license. There are several types of license suspensions, but all result in a person’s inability to operate a motor vehicle on Georgia’s roadways. The length of license suspension, and the conditions of the license suspension vary greatly. In some cases you may be eligible for a limited permit, or ignition interlock limited permit. Contact Atlanta Traffic Lawyer Adam D. Brown today. (404) 883-8893.

***If you are an out-of-state driver, take comfort in the fact that Georgia is not able to suspend your home state’s license. However, Georgia can suspend you privilege to drive inside Georgia. Moreover, Georgia may report your Georgia conviction to your home state licensing authority, and then your home state may take action against your driver’s license. Traffic Attorney Adam D. Brown has extensive experience defending out-of-state drivers charged with Georgia traffic offenses. If you are an out-of-state licensee, Adam will consult with attorneys in your home state at no additional expense to you, just to make sure that your Georgia traffic ticket is handled with the most up-to-date knowledge of your home state impacts. Adam has an extensive network of attorneys to consult in every state, known through Adam’s commitment to the National College of DUI of Defense and other far-reaching bar associations.
