Arrested for DUI in Georgia? Georgia Driver’s License Taken? Need an Atlanta DUI Lawyer? – What You Must Do Next
By: William C. Head, Criminal Defense Attorney Atlanta GA and ABA Board-Certified DUI Attorney
A drunk driving arrest can be a nightmare. Most Georgia DUI cases occur within a 25-mile radius of Atlanta, GA. Much of this article deals with DUI Atlanta cases (within a 30- mile radius) and finding the top Atlanta DUI lawyers near me.
The arresting officer sends your plastic Georgia driver’s license to Georgia Driver Services (GA Department of Driver Services), and the DUI officer issues you an interim driver’s license on a piece of paper that is only good for 30 days. Then, you read online that this interim driver’s license is misleading, and that (under Georgia implied consent law) you must appeal your DDS GA license suspension within “30 days” after your DUI arrest or suffer a one-year Georgia driver’s license suspension.
That is when you should search for Georgia DUI lawyers or Atlanta DUI attorneys who are experts in criminal defense law relating to driving while intoxicated cases.
Whether your arrest was for an Atlanta DUI or a drunk driving charge ANYWHERE IN GEORGIA, our DUI attorney specialists will go to court for you. No other law firms near me can match the awards for excellence and legal industry recognitions of our criminal law attorneys.

Some people foolishly try to self-assess their chances of winning the DUI in GA. The operable word here is “FOOLISHLY.” Just reading TRUE DUI case histories with: (1) BAC levels triple the alcohol legal limit, or (2) with a DUI refusal and failing all three NHTSA field sobriety tests, or (3) another drunk driving case report of a DUI checkpoint with a Intoxilyzer breath test double the legal alcohol limit, from two of our previous criminal trials will dissuade you from thinking that you have no chance to beat a DUI in court.
After being arrested for DUI in GA, some people are so depressed that they dwell on their mistake the night before, and not on beating the criminal charges. Fear of the unknown can be a powerful enemy. Our DUI lawyer partners WELCOME comparing criminal attorney comparisons. For example, our law firm has three different law book authors, which is unique in Georgia and possibly in all of America.
A successful defense record for all Atlanta DUI attorneys in the law firm must include possessing the ability to neutralize field sobriety test evidence and finding ways to eliminate breath alcohol test results, especially where the “number” is in excess of the legal alcohol limit. Plus, knowing the LAW is critical, and entails our DUI attorneys being familiar with every prior appellate decision on Georgia DUI laws and especially Georgia implied consent law.
Drugged driving cases have grown by 100% in the last 15 years. Sleep driving DUI cases, after taking prescribed medications for insomnia or pain management are up by 400%. Plus, a conviction for DUI-drugs has more devastating DUI penalties in Georgia that a DUI-alcohol case, due to a more severe loss of driving privileges and other loss of entitlements (e.g., loss of the GA Hope Scholarship due to a “drugs” conviction).
Each DUI attorney in our law office possesses special training on debunking “drug recognition” officers’ training and roadside tests like the “modified Romberg test” and the less-extensive ARIDE protocols which require that our criminal defense lawyers know how to challenge a GBI blood alcohol or drugs test. Each of our Atlanta lawyers is an INSTRUCTOR in the three NHTSA standardized field sobriety tests (SFST), which exceeds the training of most police officers making arrests for DUI in Georgia.
