Macon Criminal Defense Attorney

Warner Robins DUI Lawyer

I am attorney Lori Obenauf, and I represent individuals facing criminal charges throughout Macon, Georgia, and the surrounding areas. I am experienced in handling a variety of criminal matters, including drug charges, traffic offenses, misdemeanors, felonies, DUI, and underage drinking defense.

In my 25 years of combined business and legal experience, I have handled cases in the superior, municipal, state and federal court systems. Today, much of my criminal defense practice is devoted to DUI defense for underage drinking, as well as DUI defense for other individuals. In addition to criminal defense matters, I also handle cases in family law, business law, estates and probate.

DUI Defense From a Knowledgeable Macon Criminal Defense Lawyer

A DUI can drastically affect your day-to-day activities, and it can include repercussions such as:

  • Suspension of your license: For underage drinkers, you could be looking at a six- to 12-month suspension
  • License revocation
  • Jail time
  • Fines
  • Probation
  • A permanent mark on your record
  • Loss of income from a job

If you are charged with DUI in Georgia, there are two components to the charge; criminal and civil. If you, your child or a loved one has been charged with drunk driving, timing is off the essence. It is imperative you seek legal counsel immediately. Acting immediately and speaking to a lawyer will likely minimize the negative consequences of the charge. I can represent you or your child in both the criminal and administrative proceedings, and I will work swiftly to protect your rights.

Why Work With an Attorney?

A DUI charge does not require an attorney's assistance; however, it is a very smart idea to retain counsel. Having handled many of these cases, I understand the defenses to DUI and will work efficiently and aggressively to build your case. I will scrutinize evidence, such as the Breathalyzer test results and any issues present at the time of the arrest, and I will determine the best strategy to pursue.

I will work to protect your license and minimize the costs and impact of the charge. As your attorney, I will assist you with all aspects of the charge, including working with your insurance company and dealing with issues concerning your employment. Additionally, I have particular knowledge in handling military DUI, and I fully understand the defense to these charges if you are a member of the military.
