Every year we get calls around the Roswell Beer Festival where someone has been arrested on a driving under the influence (DUI) charge or a driving while intoxicated (DWI) charge. I wish there was a way to have an instant search the minute blue lights come on behind you, but until that is possible, we will just have to make do with searches after an arrest is made.
More than likely you have arrived at this page because of a DUI or DWI arrest in Roswell. Hopefully, you have searched for Roswell DUI Lawyer or Roswell DUI Attorney immediately after being released. Why is an immediate search so important?
When you were arrested you had the option of taking a breathalyzer test or refusing one. If you refused (or if you blew over the legal limit), then your driver’s license was taken and you were given a DS 1205 form to serve as your temporary driver’s license. But it’s more than that. Much more.
It includes information about you, details of your arrest, the officer’s name, where the arrest occurred, and test results. It also includes a section that reads “OFFICIAL NOTICE OF INTENT TO SUSPEND” which is where you are informed that if you don’t request an administrative hearing within ten (10) business days, your driver’s license will be automatically suspended.
If your spouse can’t drive you to and from work, if your parents can’t drive you to and from college, if your boyfriend or girlfriend can’t drive you where you need to go, how will you get there? Imagine your life without the freedom to drive for one year. Think about how that will impact your life. And that’s before your case even goes to trial.
If you have been arrested for DUI or DWI in Roswell, you need to call Mitnick and Associates right now. Every day you wait can impact your life. If a friend or family member has been arrested for DUI in Roswell, call Mitnick and Associates today. If you cannot or don’t want to be a chauffeur for the next year, this call can be a lifesaver.
If you ask for an administrative hearing within the ten day window, you have a much greater opportunity of keeping your driving privileges. However, the preparation for your DUI case is just beginning.
You need to know that, attorney Dan Mitnick believes you are not guilty. According to our court system, you are “not guilty” until a judge or jury rules that you are guilty. The entire team at Mitnick and Associates will work to see a resolution in your case where you are not convicted of DUI or DWI.

Make no mistake, there can be a long road ahead. Administrative hearings, evidence review, arraignment, and even trial can last up to 2 years. Our goal at Mitnick and Associates is that your case is dismissed or the charges reduced so that your life isn’t ruined and you can get on with family, work, or school. We’ve seen all the tricks used by the prosecutors and police and have the experience to make sure you can enjoy the Roswell Beer Festival (and any other event you want to attend) safely and for years to come.
