What if I am stopped on the road by a Police Officer?
The Police Officer will usually ask you for your driver’s license, registration information, and proof of insurance.  The Police Officer is supposed to inform you as to why you were stopped, and allow you to offer an explanation for any question you are asked. In some cases, the Police Officer may even ask for your permission to search your vehicle for illegal drugs or weapons. Under no circumstances should you allow a Police Officer to search your vehicle without a warrant.  If you are eventually arrested as a result of your traffic stop, do not make any statements to the arresting Officer.  Those statements, if given, could later be used against you in Court.


FAQ ​​

What if I am considering a divorce?
If you are considering a divorce, especially when minor children are involved, you should seek legal advice from an attorney to discuss your rights.  Divorce cases have become much more complex than they used to be, and the Courts require much more paperwork and procedures than ever before.  Even if you think your divorce case will be uncontested, you should get legal advice from an attorney before you file for the divorce, or sign any papers agreeing to a divorce.

What if I am involved in an accident ?
It is very important that you seek immediate medical treatment if you are injured. Also, it is crucial that you seek legal advice from a lawyer as to how to deal with the insurance company. You should not agree to give either verbal, written or recorded statements to any insurance company until you have obtained legal advice from a lawyer.
What if I am charged with any crime or traffic violation?
If you are charged with any crime or traffic violation, get legal advice from a lawyer, even if the offense you have been charged with seems very minor to you.  A lawyer is in the best position to advise you of your rights, as it pertains to that offense.  Some criminal and/or traffic offenses can result in a suspension of ones drivers license, and can also result in certain negative information being reported to the Department of Driver Services or the Georgia Bureau of Investigations.

It is important in each of these situations to seek professional legal advice in order to fully understand your rights. Securing competent legal representation is essential to ensure a favorable outcome.
