Customer Question
Hi there! I have...

Hi there! I have a court date set for today which I didn't know about until yesterday. I was arrested for a public intoxication back in march.

Lawyer's Assistant: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?

GA

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No, I had been trying to see if a date had been set for months but every time I called I never got ahold of anyone that could help and when I searched it online could t find anything either. Until I checked my mail

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I was guilty of the charge unfortunately but my main concern is getting it off my record for future job applications
