DUI Ignition Interlock Waiver (Granted)

Sometimes our firm is called upon to do clean up on cases we did not represent clients on when they multiple DUI convictions in Georgia.  Typically people come to us to see if they can get a statutorily mandated requirement for the installation of an ignition interlock device waived by the trial court.  We routinely handle these types of cases and for the vast majority of these types of cases, we are able to have a trial court sign off on an order waiving the ignition interlock requirement.  Each court handles this issue differently.  We were hired by a person who was convicted of two DUI charges within five years of each other that triggered the ignition interlock requirement.  The most recent DUI was in Cobb County.  Our firm did not represent this particular client on those DUI cases and we were brought in to represent him post conviction.  Our client was moving out of state and would not be able to satisfy the ignition interlock requirements in the state he was moving to.  Mr. Sullivan was able to investigate the DUI in Cobb County, file a motion to waive the Ignition Interlock Device requirement, and if need be, conduct a hearing in court.  Mr. Sullivan was able to get the Cobb County judge to sign an order waiving the Ignition Interlock requirement and our client was subsequently able to get a license in the state he moved to.
