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.

Underage Drinking

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 You may lose your scholarship, your acceptance may be rescinded, you could be denied housing, or you may not be allowed to attend graduation.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.
