Knowledgeable Representation Against Serious DUI Charges

If you were arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, you may be worried about your next steps. Should you try to strike a plea deal or work with a knowledgeable attorney to defend your rights and best interests? What will happen if you are convicted or you plead guilty? Will you lose your license, or will you be allowed to continue driving with a restricted license?

At William Long Whitesell, L.L.C., we can answer all of these questions and more. Since 2001, we have been defending drivers throughout Valdosta and surrounding areas in Georgia against drunk driving offenses. We are confident that we have the experience and passion necessary to guide you through your legal case toward the best possible outcome in your case.

Experience Handling A Wide Range Of Issues

Facing a drunk driving charge can feel like the end of the world for some because they can lead to a variety of penalties, including:

  • Jail time
  • Loss of driving privileges
  • Ignition interlock device installation
  • A lasting criminal record
  • Suspended license
  • Community service
  • Probation
  • Alcohol counseling
  • Insurance increases

With nearly 20 years of experience representing people accused of drunk driving, attorney Mr. Whitesell provides knowledgeable, custom-tailored representation in matters of DUI defense.

In addition to his private practice as a DUI defense lawyer, William Long Whitesell has prosecuted hundreds of similar cases in Remerton. Nearly 20 years of experience as both a criminal defense attorney and prosecutor allow him to see every side of a case, and anticipate the opposition’s tactics and respond to them effectively.

Comprehensive Defense In Administrative And Criminal Proceedings

If you have been pulled over for DUI, you are technically facing two cases – a criminal case, which is handled by the state, and an administrative license suspension before the Georgia Department of Driver Services. Mr. Whitesell knows how to resolve these matters efficiently and maximize your chances of success.

Discuss Your Case With An Experienced Lawyer

If you have been stopped or arrested on suspicion of DUI, it is absolutely essential to contact an attorney as soon as possible. If you fail to respond quickly to criminal or administrative DUI charges, it can be much harder to protect your rights, maintain your driving privileges and return to normalcy.

We welcome you to join us for a free initial consultation to learn more about your rights and options. To arrange an appointment, please contact us online or call 229-244-9808. From our convenient office in Valdosta, Georgia, we represent clients throughout the surrounding communities, especially Lowndes County.
