About Richard Lawson
Duilawyer12320120906 2 tnwejd

For almost 10 years, Kimberly Berry has successfully represented individuals charged with DUI and other related drug and alcohol crimes in hundreds of misdemeanor and felony cases. She has experience conducting hearings and motions in courts throughout the state of Georgia and maintains an aggressive trial practice defending those wrongly accused of DUI. Ms. Berry is also experienced in defending drivers in administrative driver's license suspension hearings prosecuted by the Georgia Department of Driver Services. In addition, Ms. Berry has handled appeals.

Ms. Berry is a graduate of Vanderbilt University School of Law where she was a Dean's Scholar. She has an undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia and is a graduate of Gwinnett County public schools. She began her legal career as a public defender and was selected into the Georgia Public Defender Standards Council Honors Program for outstanding law school graduates. Ms. Berry is admitted to practice in all juvenile, state, recorders, municipal, and superior courts of Georgia as well as the Georgia Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court of Georgia.

In addition, Ms. Berry also handles criminal defense cases in federal prosecutions in the Northern District of Georgia. In early 2011, she completed a comprehensive training course certifying her in DUI Detection & Standardized Field Sobriety Testing using the NHTSA curriculum. This is the same training that Georgia DUI officers receive qualifying them to stop and arrest drivers for DUI. Ms. Berry regularly consults with the top DUI expert witnesses and receives up to date training on developments in DUI law and detection technologies.

In 2012, Ms. Berry applied for acceptance at the national Trial Lawyers College and was selected from a pool of applicants nationwide to attend the prestigious program in advanced trial law techniques.  She graduated from the college in August 2012.

Most recently she has been honored by being independently rated as “Superb 10.0” by the Avvo rating service, joining a select and elite group of nationally recognized DUI lawyers.  She has dedicated her practice to DUI defense in Georgia and defending the rights of the accused.

Ms. Berry is committed to giving each of her clients personal attention and fighting hard to ensure that they receive the best possible outcome in their case whether that be through negotiating a favorable plea bargain or effectively presenting the case at a jury trial. While Ms. Berry is an accomplished trial lawyer, she is often able to negotiate a DUI down to a reckless driving offense and a trial is not necessary.

Ms. Berry focuses her practice on defending drivers wrongfully and over-zealously accused of driving under the influence offenses as well as cases charging people with Minor in Possession ( MIP ), underage consumption, furnishing alcohol to minors, possession of marijuana or other drugs, open container violations, public drunk, violations of probation, child endangerment DUI offenses, reckless driving, habitual violators, and serious injury and accident cases by vehicle including vehicular homicide. The best lawyers in Georgia recognize Ms. Berry's courtroom accomplishments and her clients are in good hands as her office is the premier DUI defense law firm in Metro Atlanta and North Georgia.
