There is a big difference between being arrested and being convicted of a crime.
People get arrested every day in Georgia for DUI (Driving Under the Influence) of drugs or alcohol and other criminal charges. But being charged with a crime does NOT make you guilty of that crime!
The phrase “Nobody is Perfect” applies to the police as much as it does to anyone else, and mistakes and procedural errors are common in DUI and criminal cases.
A DUI charge is not something to be taken lightly. If you have been arrested for DUI, then you are facing a SERIOUS AND LIFE ALTERING EVENT!
This is why:
There are only a FEW of the many reasons that a DUI charge should be fought vigorously.
Once you get arrested, there truly is no time to lose in starting your defense. A DUI conviction in Georgia carries with it a mandatory license suspension, and you only have ten days to request an administrative license hearing or your license will be automatically suspended. Can you imagine trying to get to school, doctors appointment(s), work, shop for groceries or pick your kids up from school when you have no driving privileges at all?
If you have been arrested for a DUI in Georgia, there are 2 immediate steps that you should take:
A successful DUI defense is one where either the charges are dropped, you win a trial, or the charges are reduced, so they won’t have a disastrous and long lasting effect on your future.
DUI cases are often won by examining the tiniest details of each case. This requires being up to date on the latest DUI technology such as the CMI Intoxilyzer 9000, knowing and employing cutting edge defense strategies including questioning the validity of the Field Sobriety Testing, and having the experience, expertise, time and knowledge to identify and implement a successful defense strategy.
Experience and Training are the two most important criteria for selecting a DUI Defense Lawyer. It is critical to hire your defense attorney based on their experience and training. Having many years of experience in DUI Defense is an important criterion for selecting your DUI Defense lawyer. A lawyer becomes experienced at DUI Defense by continual and continued advanced training and the number of DUI cases defended over a long period of time. The second most important criterion is the attorney’s knowledge and specific training in DUI Defense and includes specific training in all forms of scientific testing (breath, blood, urine etc.), officer procedures, standardized field sobriety tests (practitioner and instructor), preliminary breath testing machine and GA’s new breath test machine, the Intoxilyzer 9000.
