By: William C. Head, Atlanta Attorney Named “Best DUI Lawyer” in 2017
People arrested in Georgia for driving while intoxicated (DWI) immediately search the Internet to how to beat a DUI, since this acronym is the most widely used GA abbreviation for drunk driving. They comb through web listings of DUI attorneys to look for examples of DUI cases won, or tips on getting out of a DUI in Georgia. They have read about celebrities arrested for DUI and getting a DUI dismissed or beating a DUI charge in a trial. Potential clients ask us all the time how to get out of a DUI.
Also, since about four out every 10 Georgia DUI cases are within a county within a 25- mile radius of Atlanta, people who need criminal legal defense look for lawyer ratings on the best lawyer in Atlanta, whose profile proves that he or she knows how to beat a DWI-DUI.
No algorithm or cell phone app exists to calculate who is the best DUI lawyer for YOUR court location, but these 7 factors are the primary influencers in estimating the likelihood that a DUI attorney with high attorney ratings can see a clear path on how to beat DUI charges. These seven factors help estimate the likelihood of being able to obtain (through negotiation) a Georgia reckless driving and not a DUI in Georgia.

Similar to all aspects of life, like in competitive sports or contests, the best trained and most experienced “players” win more often than the less skilled and inexperienced competitors. For beating a DUI, this is a proven fact.
Any DUI lawyers that you evaluate who have not had over 100 contested cases that they have won are still in the learning process. These wins can be through aggressive pretrial motion practice, to get the DUI dismissed, by using an implied consent violation to exclude a high breath alcohol test, or going to a bench trial (judge only) or trial by jury.
