Ecleynne started her legal career as an indigent defense attorney in Clayton County. Later, as an associate with the Cochran Firm, Ecleynne was devoted in representing clients in their pursuit of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

Legal Answers
119 Questions Answered

Q. is it legal to buy CBD (Hemp) oil THC FREE online and have it shipped to my home if I live in Georgia?
A: The Georgia House just approved a bill that would allow medical marijuana oil to be sold to registered patients, giving them a legal way to obtain a drug that they’re already allowed to use. https://www.ajc.com/news/state--regional-govt--politics/medical-marijuana-dispensaries-bill-passes-georgia-house/TiRIqJOF7ogWvhe8sK0JaO/
Q. Can police search your home before you are presented with copy or proof search warrant, how long can they detain someone
A: The notice requirement for a law enforcement officer entering an occupied residence for the purpose of executing a search warrant may be dispensed with by a no-knock provision in the warrant or by the presence of exigent (emergency) circumstances. Police can execute the search warrant at the residence without announcing their presence, when there is a “no-knock” provision. U.S.C.A. Const.Amend. 4; West's Ga.Code Ann. § 17-5-27. Poole v. State, 266 Ga. App. 113, 596 S.E.2d 420 (2004)
Q. So if I accidentally hit and knocked down my exes mailbox. I knew I bumped something but at 1st thought it was the curb.
A: Accident is a defense to criminal charges but the attorney will need more information to see if that would be a viable defense in your particular case. Now the fact that it's your"exes" mailbox may pose a little bit of an issue (especilly if you don't live close by)
Q. In the State of Georgia, would having multiple felonies disqualify you from becoming a Medical Assistant?
A: Generally, individuals who have been found guilty of a felony, pleaded guilty to a felony, or had a professional license, registration, or certification denied, revoked, suspended, or subjected to probationary conditions by a regulatory authority or certification board are not eligible for the CMA (AAMA) Exam. However, the Certifying Board may grant a waiver based upon mitigating circumstances. If you wish to request that the Certifying Board permit you to take the test, you must submit a Request for Waiver form and written evidence that demonstrates your felony conviction or plea should not prevent you from taking the CMA (AAMA) Exam. Link to the waiver is below http://www.aama-ntl.org/docs/default-source/cma-exam/cma-exam-request-waiver.pdf?sfvrsn=18 Good Luck
Q. I got a dui in 2015 and i was put on probation for it and i havent reported or paid the fine yet what do i need to d
A: Get an attorney. You will need to know if there is a probation warrant, then whether your probation tolled, and etc. An attorney will be able to review and tell you what is best for YOUR specific case, with YOUR specific set of facts, in the COUNTY, that it happened and YOUR actual probation office.
Q. I have a limited permit (2nd dui, interlock). I got a speeding ticket. If I plead guilty will my license be revoked?
A: I would need more information. I think your biggest issue may be if your probation would be affected. Make sure of that first. In addition, the amount of speeding will definitely be needed to answer whether or not your license will be revoked.
Q. Is it possible to get a resteicted license or some form of license to get to work if DUI was recieved in Georgia
A: If you plead guilty to DUI, and it is your first conviction in Georgia within five years, you are immediately eligible for a Georgia temporary driving permit. DUI driving permits known as a temporary or limited driving permit in Georgia will be valid for 120 days from the date of the conviction. In order to get a Georgia temporary driving permit, the court should complete the official DS1126 form (First DUI Conviction Court Affidavit). Heres the application https://www.columbusga.gov/Courts/StateCourtDockets/JudgeRichardson/Application%20to%20DDS%20for%20First%20DUI%20Limited%20Permit.pdf
Q. Does a limited or restricted driving permit as a result of a DUI include the use of a motorbike if you don’t own a car?
A: Mopeds A moped is defined as any motor driven cycle with an engine not exceeding 50cc (3.05 cubic inches). Mopeds are exempt from the provisions relating to the registration and licensing of motor vehicles. Rules to operate mopeds on Georgia roads and highways: 1. Must be at least 15 years of age and possess a valid driver’s license, instructional permit or limited permit. 2. Must wear protective headgear (U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) compliant motorcycle helmet). 3. No tag is required. 4. Must obey the same traffic laws governing drivers of motor vehicles. 5. May not use limited access highways or other roadways where the minimum speed limit is above 35 mph.
Q. Can you pass a car impeding traffic
A: “All drivers of vehicles using the highways are held to the exercise of due care. A leading vehicle has no absolute legal position superior to that of one following. Each driver must exercise ordinary care in the situation in which he finds himself. The driver of the leading vehicle must exercise ordinary care not to stop, slow up, nor swerve from his course without adequate warning to following vehicles of his intention so to do. The driver of the following vehicle, in his turn, must exercise ordinary care to avoid collision with vehicles, both those in front and those behind him.” Atlanta Coca-Cola Bottling Co. v. Jones, 236 Ga. 448, 450, 224 S.E.2d 25 (1976).
