Atlanta DUI Lawyer William C. “Bubba” HeadAtlanta DUI Lawyer Bubba Head

The Atlanta DUI Lawyer Who Provides You With Detailed, Concierge Service

By: William C. Head, ABA Board-Certified Atlanta DUI Attorney & Criminal Defense Lawyer

Having to locate and hire the RIGHT criminal defense attorney for a DUI arrest in Georgia for driving under the influence is no easy task. Similar to trying to find a surgeon to remove a cancerous tumor, you search “DUI defense lawyers,” seeking stellar credentials for quality legal counsel, and then sort through the various lawyer ratings.

Most DUI stops in Georgia start as traffic tickets. Although shocking to many people, an arrest is almost universally utilized for impaired driving cases, since drunk driving is a serious traffic offense. This type offense calls for an arrest, and (if convicted) Georgia law requires jail time in most cases. This is only one of 100 reasons for fighting your DUI.

If you have found our law office website, you already know how important beating a DUI is to your future. Don’t think that an Intoxilyzer 9000 breath alcohol test, or a blood alcohol laboratory result that is over the legal limit, will prevent our DUI attorneys from being able to attack the State’s case.

Flashy, colorful websites with a DUI attorney that lacks the best credentials can easily divert your attention. Only by making a side-by-side comparison of REAL legal credentials, 5-star customer service reports from clients’ attorney ratings and criminal defense experience as trial lawyers can you make the RIGHT decision. Once hired, our criminal defense attorneys build a strong client relationship, as we endeavor to find a way to eliminate the charge of driving drunk.

How Our DUI Attorneys in Atlanta Take Away the Stress

Being arrested for drinking and driving by police is a jarring experience. The degrading and frightening process of being charged with a DUI and cuffed, fingerprinted, and having a mug shot taken are the low point of many clients’ lives.

The uneasy feeling that arrested citizens have, from their jail and booking experience, is almost universally characterized by STRESS, FEELING GUILTY, and BEING TERRIFIED about what is going to happen in their impaired driving case.

Accused citizens facing driving while impaired (DWI) worry about what is going to happen to their ability to drive. Sleep evades them, and normal functions like eating a meal are of little or no importance. Until a criminal defense lawyer with a “game plan” for winning is hired, these dysfunctional days continue.

At our initial FREE consultation, we tell you how and why your stress must be transferred to our shoulders, so that you can get your life back.

Why Our Atlanta DUI Lawyers Prefer to Meet You Face-to-Face

When you call our DUI law firm in Atlanta, Georgia our DUI defense attorneys’ first step is to send you a massive amount of helpful information, including a PDF copy of one on Atlanta DUI attorney Bubba Head’s drunk driving books. This book will HELP YOU learn about current GA DUI law, and bring you up to speed on what happens next after an arrest for DUI in Georgia.


In our initial email to you we include numerous attachmentslinks and video clips, including a short questionnaire created by our DUI specialists, and our one-of-a-kind grid about Georgia DUI penalties for a first offense DUI, 2nd DUI in GA, or any other repeat driving while impaired offense. Our drunk driving lawyers know how to investigate a DUI in Georgia, and how and when to take a DUI case to trial.

Atlanta DUI Law Firm


As opposed to many Atlanta DUI law firms that want your credit card number on the first phone call, our Atlanta DUI lawyer partners PREFER to sit down face-to-face with you, and help you by answering your questions and listening to your concerns in a FREE DUI lawyer consultation at our law office in Fulton County, GA.

24-HOUR NUMBER – (404) 567-5515

As you can see on the map below, we are strategically positioned, at our main office, to reach the four metro counties (Cobb County, Fulton County, Gwinnett County and DeKalb County, in about 30 minutes or less on most days, unless some glitch in Atlanta traffic delays that a small amount.

William C Head PC Sandy Springs

Our DUI Law Firm’s Busiest Metro Atlanta-Area Courts

Once the center point of Georgia DUI arrests, drunk driving cases originating in Atlanta Municipal Court have diminished to about 20% of the numbers being recorded 15 years ago. This pullback has occurred since the City of Atlanta Police Department disbanded its DUI Task Force about 7 years ago.

Plus, Uber and Lyft have impacted all driving under the influence arrests by offering an efficient, fast method of driving people where they wish to go. The Georgia State Patrol Nighthawks Task Force still operates in Atlanta, but at a small fraction of the arrests a decade ago.

Our DUI trial attorneys in Fulton County GA mostly see car accident cases involving a drunken driving charge.

By County, these are some of our law office’s busiest municipal courts:

How to Navigate the DUI License Suspension Action and Criminal Case

After our interview process, prospective clients will fully understand the two types of court proceedings (administrative license suspension and criminal DUI court case) that typically must be handled by a skilled DUI attorney on their behalf.

Criminal defense attorneys from our DUI law firm even draw out simple graphics to help our clients comprehend the relationship between the two types of legal proceedings and courts that are involved.

This meeting helps accused drunk drivers assess their legal options, and it lets us create a personalized action plan, for facilitating the lawful return of our clients’ driver’s licenses from Georgia DDS ASAP. Whether your goal is to get the charge reduced, or fight the case at trial, our criminal defense lawyers’ legal representation covers all of that, and more (e.g., motions for new trial and appeals).

Our DUI defense lawyers will also give you some helpful methods of coping with obstacles created by the loss of your plastic driver’s license. You also will receive an “Action Plan” and be instructed to start performing certain tasks for your pending criminal case.

Getting these requirements knocked out ahead of time will help our criminal defense lawyers help you find a GREAT outcome for your DUI case.

The Most Common Client Concern Is Job Impact After a DUI Arrest

At our DUI law firm, our Atlanta DUI lawyers’ initial job in undertaking a FREE lawyer consultation and preliminary legal evaluation of the facts in your criminal case, is to ask you about any employment issues created by your arrest and/or possible conviction.

For many people, a highly-valuable job is “at risk” as a result of an arrest for DUI in Georgia, and an even higher number of clients face immediate termination if convicted.

Related issues like driving a company vehicle or a company-insured vehicle, or traveling abroad on company business, are commonly voiced to our criminal defense attorneys by prospective clients. Finally, virtually none of our clients know or understand defense law for criminal cases, and that includes attorneys in practice and handling other civil or business law matters.

Georgia DUI Penalties - Job Loss

Our Second Priority: Protect Your Right to Drive & Fight the Driver’s License Suspension

After bonding out of jail and getting your personal belongings back, you will notice that you no longer have your driver’s license. Instead you have an 8 ½ inch by 11-inch form called a DDS 1205. This is a temporary driving permit, issued by the arresting officer pursuant to Georgia implied consent law.

This form contains information about a 30-day deadline and what happens on the 45th day after arrest. Panic strikes, because YOU NEED YOUR PLASTIC DRIVER’S LICENSE! You need a valid driver’s license to make certain purchases, to gain access to certain establishments, and to cash a check.

In today’s world, being able to drive is often synonymous with being able to work at a high-paying job. Plus, because most families need two incomes to function, the person arrested for driving intoxicated typically has child care transportation and custodial responsibilities.

These critical personal issues must be part of our “risk assessment,” and factored in when we discuss your pending DUI license suspension based on Georgia implied consent law. At this stage, we are fully focused on how to get your license back after a DUI arrest and booking.

ASK OUR LAWYERS about the 30-DAY time limit following your date of arrest.

GA DUI 30 Day Warning

Meet Three Top Atlanta Criminal Defense Attorneys and Georgia DUI Specialists

Our DUI law firm approaches all DUI cases referred to our Atlanta lawyers the same. First, we determine if our client was lawfully arrested. Did the police officer see our client drive? Did our client remain silent and refuse all roadside field sobriety tests? Did our client ask for an attorney?

Next, our attorneys will ask to see all paperwork from your arrest and jail booking process, particularly the DDS 1205 form (after your driver’s license was taken) which starts a Georgia DDS administrative DUI suspension.

This tells us a great deal about what the officer is claiming you did, in response to being asked (under GA implied consent law) to do. This involves being asked, after the DUI arrest, to take a breathalyzer (Intoxilyzer 9000) or blood test.

Exactly What DUI Georgia Charges Are You Facing?

Our DWI-DUI defense attorneys want to see exactly HOW your case was charged: alcohol only, drugs only, alcohol and drugs, or child endangerment. Plus we want to see if only a DUI less safe is accused, OR if the client faces an additional DUI per se (for being over the legal alcohol limit) because of a “failed” breathalyzer or blood test. In accident cases, we always ask about possible serious injuries to another person, or a fatality that can lead to vehicular homicide GA felony charges.

Our criminal attorneys assess each of the Georgia criminal charges cited in the traffic tickets issued by the municipal, or a university police department, or by a federal, county, or state police officer, such as the Georgia State Patrol.

DUI cases are (by far) the most common impetus for a person to call our law offices in Atlanta (Sandy Springs), but our criminal attorneys handle all criminal charges in all counties in Georgia. Because Georgia DUI laws are the same, the specific court system makes little difference to our DUI lawyers.

FREE Legal Advice for Your DUI Case and Meet with You – IN PERSON

Our DUI defense lawyers also must know the date and TIME of your arrest (printed on your traffic ticket), plus the first court date (arraignment) given to our prospective client after being released on bond. If you are one of the lucky few people who still have their plastic driver’s license (about 5%), we need a copy of that too.

Our drunk driving lawyers calculate and calendar potential administrative license suspension deadlines to ensure that you don’t lose your driver’s license in GA, or from any other state. Our job is to protect your ability to keep driving and fight the criminal case, with the objective to win, or secure a reduction of charges, such as DUI reduced to reckless driving.

Careful DUI Case Analysis May Get a DUI in Georgia Dropped

Because the DUI defense investigation that our Atlanta criminal defense attorneys provide is so thorough, our criminal lawyers prefer to meet in our law office, face-to-face, with every prospective client. While some Georgia DUI attorneys are quick to ask for your credit card number in an initial phone call, we always prefer to act less like a car salesperson and more like a trusted advisor who will take this legal burden off your shoulders.

Mr. Head even gives prospective clients a FREE 430-page drunk driving book (PDF version), one of the leading criminal defense books on fighting DUI-DWI charges. (See a copy of the cover below, and other state DWI-DUI versions that Mr. Head has co-authored for other states.) No other DUI attorney in Georgia does that.

Bubba Head DUI Book Author The DUI Book by William C. Head

This allows our three Super Lawyer partners to assess both the quality of the DUI case, and each client’s likely courtroom abilities and personal credibility, if ever asked by one of our DUI specialists to testify at a pre-trial motions hearing.

Rarely do our clients have to testify at trial, but that is primarily due to how the DUI defense attorneys at our law office endeavor to firmly dominate the evidence in the case – before any trial takes place.

Client Reviews For Atlanta DUI Attorney Bubba Head

I am sure your other clients tell you this all the time… but I’ll repeat it. You are AWESOME! Your great communication gives me a lot of confidence….and I need that right now. I really think you believe in me and that makes a world of difference in my outlook. Thanks again, Bubba. Thank you very, very much!

– Recent Client Review

Mr. Head was a tremendous help in our child’s DUI litigation. He was referred indirectly to me by another lawyer. I needed a lawyer but had no clue on who I should use. I began going through the phone book seeking the right attorney. As I interviewed each one on the phone, my frustration mounted. They all seemed the same.

My frustration must have shown through because one lawyer said, “Who do you want, Bubba Head?” I asked him who was Bubba Head and he said supposedly the best DUI lawyer in the state. I hung up and called Mr. Head. I could not have made a better choice!

The journey through the court system is convoluted and perilous. Mr. Head and his team were invaluable in navigating the system. They were supportive and informative as they presented the possible courses of action. It was a long process but they never waivered in their support. Mr. Head was truly a gift from God. I firmly believe the verdict in my child’s favor was an answered prayer from God and that Mr. Head was the messenger.
