Dui And Dwi Law Lawyers In Suches Georgia

Suches is an unincorporated area in Union County, Georgia, United States. With an altitude approaching 3,000 feet, Suches describes itself as "The Valley Above The Clouds"' and is one of the highest-elevation communities in the state. It is the birthplace of Arthur Woody, a forest ranger who was a key figure in the early history of Chattahoochee National Forest. Suches is about a mile from the Appalachian Trail (AT) as it goes through Woody Gap. Hikers are seen in town especially in the spring, picking up mail at the local post office and supplies at the general store. The local school is Woody Gap School, the smallest public school in the state of Georgia. The historical marker in front of the school lists it as the homestead of Joseph E. Brown, governor of Georgia during the Civil War. The current businesses in Suches include Budget Propane, the general store, two motorcycle resorts, Mountain Property Limited (the local realtor) and the U.S. Post Office. Because Suches is rather isolated, visitors tend to be tourists, such as hikers, motorcyclists, bicyclists, hunters, and fishermen. Recently, the annual Tour de Georgia bicycle race has gone through Suches on its way to Dahlonega.

What is dui and dwi law?

Driving While Intoxicated is the offense of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Some statutes refer to driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while impaired (DWI) that does not require intoxication. DUI and DWI lawyers represent people who have been arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. DUI and DWI attorneys defend clients at each stage of a DUI or DWI case -- from arrest to an appeal after conviction. A DUI and DWI attorney may challenge aspects of a DUI or DWI arrest or conviction, including breathalyzer and chemical testing procedures.
