Experienced Tucker DUI Defense Attorney 

At Lawson and Berry, our attorneys have handled thousands of DUI defense cases in the State of Georgia. We have a history of achieving outstanding results for our clients, so let us make a difference in your case. We achieve these results by carefully examining the evidence of your case and then considering what Georgia DUI defenses we can use in your case. Some of our strategies include:

  • -Analyzing the scientific accuracy of your blood or breath test
  • Exploring the legality of the initial stop
  • Investigating whether field sobriety tests were performed properly
  • Looking into whether any of your constitutional rights were violated before, during, or after the DUI stop

There are a lot of Georgia lawyers out there, and those that do not practice DUI law regularly assume DUI cases are straightforward and simple. Sometimes they even recommend their client plead guilty because there is nothing they can do to negate the evidence. This is entirely false, and that is just one of the reasons why we urge you to hire a Tucker DUI Lawyer that handle DUI cases daily and understands all of the nuances of Georgia DUI law. 

Georgia DUI laws are highly complex and require the expertise of an attorney who has an intimidating knowledge of the laws and understands how the DUI court process works. 

For instance, some people mistakenly assume the criminal case is the only case against them in the DUI case. They do not know that there is also an administrative case that must be resolved, or their license will be automatically suspended. This is separate from the criminal case, and action must be taken within 30 days after the arrest. Our Tucker DUI Attorneys are well aware of these cases and are prepared to take action immediately to protect you and your license. 

DUI Convictions Can Have Lasting Consequences

Pleading guilty to a DUI charge can drastically alter your life. While it is considered a misdemeanor charge, the social implications of a DUI conviction can damage your future. Even a first DUI offense can result in jail time, heavy fines, court-ordered alcohol treatment, increased insurance premiums, and cause drivers to lose their job or jeopardize their professional licenses.

At Lawson and Berry, our attorneys have appeared before DeKalb County courts and prosecutors hundreds of times, and they can advise you of possible penalties before you go to court.
