Fighting to Protect Your Constitutional Rights

If you have been arrested for a DUI your most important first step is to hire an experienced DUI lawyer as soon as possible!

Ryan Cleveland is one of south Georgia's leading DUI attorneys. He knows how to aggressively build a defense in DUI cases and he will fight to protect your Constitutional rights. He will do the work for you in court, and strive to keep you out of court.

He has the necessary skill and experience to guide you through the entire legal process of handling a DUI. So – if you or a loved one have been arrested for DUI – call Ryan Cleveland. He will be with you every step of the way from start to finish!

Georgia has extremely harsh penalties for a simple DUI, including fines, probation, and driver's license suspension – and that is for a first offense. Even for a first offense, jail time is still a possibility.

The sentences for a second and third offense are even worse, and – depending on what occurred as a result of the DUI or in the process of the arrest – it can escalate to a felony charge!

Ryan Cleveland understands the science behind the infamous "Breathalyzer" test, and he has first-hand knowledge that breath and blood tests – especially field sobriety tests – are not always 100% accurate. Most people have no idea that – depending on a number of circumstances – it may take very little to affect a person's blood alcohol content (BAC) so that they "blow" a .08% on a Breathalyzer test.

There are many extenuating factors that can affect how quickly the blood alcohol level rises in a body, and this can and will be taken into account if your case goes to court, so you need a lawyer who knows how to turn those factors in your favor in order to avoid the devastation that a DUI conviction can mean.

Sometimes a person will just "give up" and plead guilty when facing a DUI, figuring that trying to fight the charge is hopeless and they have no other option. Ryan Cleveland wants you to know that this is completely untrue, no matter what your circumstances were at the time of your arrest.

What most people don't realize is that many DUI cases can be fought and won by an aggressive lawyer skilled in criminal defense, and Ryan Cleveland has the expertise to advocate for your rights.

Ryan Cleveland understands Georgia's legal system inside and out, particularly, knowledge of the courtrooms, judges, and law enforcement authorities in South Georgia, so let him put his experience to work for you!
