are caused by intoxicated drivers. In fact, the numbers are so high that

can sometimes violate individuals' rights and result in drivers being
wrongly accused. If you have been charged with DUI, you need to contact
a Cumming DUI defense lawyer immediately.

Georgia Boating Under the Influence Laws
Georgia law states that any individual who operates, navigates, steers
or drives any moving vessel under the influence of alcohol will be subjected
to a criminal charge. This applies to boating under the influence (BUI)
as well. In addition to driving under the influence, law enforcement officials
are always looking to stop boaters from operating their vessels under
the influence of drugs or alcohol. If you have been arrested and charged
with BUI, you could be facing serious penalties. At my firm, I can fight
to protect your rights and help build a personalized strategy to provide
you with the best possible outcome for your situation.
If you are a college student, underage driver, or any individual who is
facing a DUI charge or penalty, you need to work with Richman Law Firm.
A criminal conviction for
underage drinking could result in fines, jail time, and mandatory alcohol awareness courses.
It could also greatly affect your future. Most universities do not tolerate
underage drinking. You may lose your scholarship, your acceptance may
be rescinded, you could be denied housing, or you may not be allowed to
attend graduation. It is important that you contact Richman Law Firm right
away to protect your future.
