Our Sandy Springs DUI law firm has three DUI specialists, to be able to handle any violation of Georgia DUI laws, traffic tickets, or local ordinance violations. Our legal team handles cases all the way up to serious felony offenses or serious misdemeanor traffic offenses, like driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Some of our Sandy Springs DUI cases also involve a hit and run, which is also a very serious driving offense (like drunk driving).
If the traffic ticket arrest was made by a Sandy Springs officer or Georgia State Patrol trooper in the city limits of Sandy Springs, your case will be assigned to Sandy Springs Municipal Court. Our lawyers in Sandy Springs handle everything from super speeder GA, to attempting to elude an officer and leaving the scene of an accident.
The Sandy Springs Municipal Court is located in the Morgan Falls Business Park just north of the intersection of Roswell Road and Morgan Falls Road. The address is 7840 Roswell Road, Building 500, Sandy Springs, Georgia 30350. 770-730-5600, is the Court Administrator number.
The court building for Municipal Court of Sandy Springs is behind the Sandy Springs Police Department. Several office buildings not connected to Sandy Springs government share the same parking lot. Our Sandy Springs DUI lawyers have represented many tough misdemeanor cases in this courtroom, ranging from prostitution, noise ordinance violations and misdemeanor vehicular homicide.
In almost every case, our Sandy Springs attorneys have worked with the city prosecutors to achieve favorable outcomes for our happy clients, but we always have the ability to demand a jury trial and transfer the case to Fulton County State Court.
The current Sandy Springs Municipal Court judges are Candiss Howard, Donald Schaefer, Sharon Dickson, Marcie Ernst, and Joseph Burford. If your case reaches the jury trial phase, your case will be moved to State Court of Fulton County in downtown Atlanta. If your case is moved downtown, your attorney will continue to represent you.
At your first Sandy Springs court appearance, called an arraignment, the charges against you will be announced, and you must enter a plea of guilty, not guilty, or no contest (nolo contendere). If a new date for court is needed, ask our criminal defense attorneys about this scheduling issue.
A top lawyer from our Sandy Springs law office will appear on your behalf and enter a not guilty plea for you. Ex-cop Cory Yager, Bubba Head and Larry Kohn have collectively handled in excess of 20,000 cases. In criminal law, experience is paramount. Plus, we have two former Judges acting in an “of counsel” role, former Roswell Judge Maurice Hilliard and former Suwanee Judge Mickey Roberts.
On or before the day of your arraignment, we will file motions to obtain the State’s evidence that the prosecutor plans to try to use to convict you of drunk driving and any other traffic offenses you face, like impeding the flow of traffic, an open container violation, or Georgia’s Super Speeder violation
Some people foolishly try to self-assess their chances of beating the State’s accusation of a DUI in Georgia. The key word here is “FOOLISHLY.”
Just reading these THREE driving under the influence case histories will tell you that we are serious criminal lawyers: (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 DUI case report of a DUI checkpoint with an Intoxilyzer breath alcohol test double the legal limit, from two of our previous criminal defense trials will dissuade you from thinking that you don’t have a chance to beat a DUI in court.
Being taken to jail in cuffs depresses most people, who have never been in legal trouble in their lives. Do not waste time dwelling on “water under the bridge.” That mistake happened the night before, so NOW turn your attention to beating the criminal charges.
Fear of unknown consequences can be a powerful adversary. Our Sandy Springs DUI attorneys WELCOME your criminal attorney comparisons. Whether it comes from client reviews, attorney ratings, of accomplishments in the Georgia legal community, we will be at the top.
For example, our law firm has three different law book authors on criminal trial subjects, which is unique in Georgia and possibly in all of America.
A successful criminal defense record for all Sandy Springs DUI lawyers in the DUI law firm includes track records of success, and each lawyer for DUI possessing the ability to neutralize NHTSA standardized field sobriety test evidence.
Our job is to find ways to eliminate breath alcohol numeric results, especially where the “number” exceeds the legal alcohol limit.
Plus, knowing the LAW in DUI in Georgia is critical, and this entails our Georgia DUI lawyers being familiar with every prior Georgia appellate decision (and some decisions from other courts) to be able to help you take advantage of your opportunities to win, under Georgia DUI laws.
Implied consent laws often is that pathway, which we will explain when we meet. The implied consent law in Georgia is currently being considered by both the Georgia Supreme Court and the Court of Appeals of Georgia.
Drugged driving cases (DUI-drugs) have grown by 100% in the last two decades. Mr. Head is a national expert on sleep driving DUI cases, which occurs when a person is not aware that he or she has gotten behind the wheel, after taking prescription medications. These drugs for insomnia or pain management are being dispensed in record numbers.
Be aware that a conviction for DUI-drugs has more devastating DUI penalties in the state of Georgia than a DUI-alcohol case, due to more severe loss of driving privileges and other loss of entitlements (e.g., loss of the Georgia Hope Scholarship due to any “drugs” conviction).
This is just one unseen pitfall that can catch you off-guard, when a DUI is put on your criminal history.
Each DUI defense attorney in our Sandy Springs 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 require that our criminal defense lawyers know how to challenge a GBI blood alcohol or drugs test.
