DUI Lawyer Athens AL - Criminal Defense Attorney - Harlan D Mitchell Attorney at Law - 1
Recently, Alabama has instated harsher DUI laws with substantially increased penalties. If you have a drunk driving charge, you are facing serious consequences that will affect your family, employment, standard of living, and your way of life—even if it is your first offense. Under Alabama law, there is no work permit or limited privilege driver’s license available during suspension. You will not be legally permitted to operate a vehicle for any reason.
 
 

If convicted, the consequences for DUI are severe and long-lasting. They can include:

  • Potential jail time
  • Mandatory license suspension or revocation
  • Substantial fines
  • Ignition interlock installation
  • Mandatory probation
 
When facing severe legal consequences like these, you need an equally aggressive defense on your side. With years of experience in defending those accused of DUI and over a decade of experience as a police officer, Harlan Mitchell knows how to thoroughly cross-examine police officers and successfully contest even the toughest prosecutors.
