Many people arrested for DUI in Georgia are convinced that they cannot win their drunk driving case. Just from the degrading experience of being arrested for DUI, cuffed, put in jail, searched, and given commands of what to do, where to sit, and told when they can use a phone, they feel “guilty.” So, their attitude is that their DUI case cannot be won.
This web page is here to tell you that no DUI case is impossible to win if the required work, investigation, and effort necessary to prepare the case for the trial are done, and DONE BY an expert in DUI defense. Our three DUI law firm partners all have the training to fight ANY DUI case when a client simply has to win their DUI case.
In an atmosphere of aggressive law enforcement actions against drunk driving, such as the establishment of DUI checkpoints in both nighttime and daytime, very few DUI lawyers actually go to trial against a breath alcohol test or a blood test. We do. We are trained on how to beat a DUI, no matter if you attempted to perform field sobriety tests or not, and no matter if you took the Georgia implied consent law test or not.
Two of the most important aspects of beating a DUI case is to have the arrested DUI driver immediately follow two basic rules. First, don’t talk to ANYONE except a lawyer, because no one else except a spouse has immunity from being required to testify against you. Second, write down and provide ALL DETAILS of the circumstances of your arrest. In 72 hours, most people arrested for DUI will have forgotten key details.
Our DUI attorneys ask that this be done within 12 hours after release from jail. Make clear copies of all paperwork (bonding papers, towing receipt, administrative license suspension form that replaced your driver’s license, breath alcohol results, jail inventory of your property stored while you were in jail) — EVERYTHING — for your criminal defense attorney, or make high resolution scans to send via email attachment.
This is a checklist of 8 things you should do before coming to see our DUI lawyers in Atlanta, or discussing your case over the phone or on Facetime. The list of the 8 things we need from our prospective clients includes:
Our three DUI lawyer attorneys cover the entire state when hired to fight a DUI or other criminal case, but the DUI metro Atlanta area is where over 80% of all of our clients’ driving under the influence cases are pending. These local Georgia DUI attorneys are invaluable when we travel to a distant city because these DUI lawyers know the local community, as well as the prosecutors and Judges.
Most Georgia DUI arrests (over 50%) are made within 50 miles of the State Capitol in Atlanta, simply due to the high number of residents who live within that area. Plus, metro Atlanta has a vibrant nightlife, and rural areas typically have little to do between 10 PM and 4 AM. That is why our DUI lawyer Atlanta offices — all of them – are within that area. Atlanta, Sandy Springs, Marietta, Alpharetta, Duluth. Over the last several decades, our DUI attorneys in Atlanta have made statewide connections with skilled, local DUI lawyers in 20 other Georgia cities, and we either work DUI cases in conjunction with them, or (when people cannot afford for one of our partners to handle their pending DUI in GA) we will refer a criminal case to these able criminal defense lawyers.
DUI lawyer Atlanta Bubba Head, in his 40 years, has been to 86 different Georgia counties for a variety of criminal cases ranging from murder to embezzlement, drug possession, and speeding. But 90% of his cases are for alcohol-related offenses and drug crimes. The awards, recognitions, accolades, and words of praise received by Bubba Head for excellence in DUI defense exceed all others. In 2017, for the second time, he was named DUI Lawyer of the Year, as a DUI lawyer, by Best Lawyers in America. The Atlanta criminal justice attorney also received this recognition from Best Lawyers in 2012, when he was featured in an article about his DUI lawyer law practice.
Partner and 2017 Super Lawyer Larry Kohn is a DUI attorney in Atlanta who focuses mostly on metro Atlanta drunk driving arrests but has traveled up to 100 miles outside Atlanta to help clients. Mr. Kohn has been with Mr. Head for almost 20 years and has handled many other types of criminal law cases, from domestic violence, simple possession of marijuana, animal abuse, sex crimes, underage possession, and probation revocation.
DUI attorney Cory Yager, another partner, and Super Lawyer in our DUI law firm, has handled DUI and criminal law cases in over 60 Georgia Counties. Mr. Yager’s prior experience as a police officer and as a police field training officer (FTO), along with his 1000+ DUI arrests serves him well in DUI defense.
