DeKalb County DUI Attorney

Aggressive Defense for DUI Charges in DeKalb County

If you have been arrested in DeKalb County, it is essential that you select an experienced and knowledgeable DUI attorney to help you through this process. Many lawyers are "general practitioners" and do not have the years of experience found at the Law Offices of Richard S. Lawson. Our focus is exclusively on DUI cases and we are experts on the new scientific and legal developments that may impact your case. You can be confident that a DeKalb County DUI lawyer from our firm will work aggressively to get a positive outcome in your DUI case.

Since our focus is only on DUI offenses, we have powerful resources at our fingertips, such as top expert witnesses, doctors, investigators, and former law enforcement officers who will investigate your case independently. The lead attorney at our law firm has the experience of a former DUI prosecutor, and has handled over 4,200 DUI cases to date. With over 18 years of experience, our legal team understands the science behind the blood and breath test and can use this knowledge to build a defense for you. There are many components to a DUI case; we have provided a review of some of the most frequently occurring events during an arrest that may apply to your case. From understanding the DUI process to obtaining the help you need for your ALS hearing, our law firm is ready to give you the information you need. We can also help you come to difficult decisions regarding plea bargain vs. trial, or if your DUI car accident charges will result in serious consequences. Our team can also provide you pertinent information on the ramifications of refusing a breath test or chemical test.

Challenging the Evidence & Defending Your Rights

If you are facing another DUI and have prior DUI convictions, it is important that you seek the counsel of an experienced DUI defense lawyer before going to court. If convicted, you could face harsh penalties such as 90 days to one year in jail, a three year suspension of your driver's license or up to $1000 in fines. A professional legal mind can help you determine the authenticity of your field sobriety tests or blood & breath tests. If you were charged with a DUI under 21 or a minor in possession of alcohol charge, it is imperative that you contact a DUI defense lawyer to advocate on your behalf. A minor in possession charge automatically includes a one year suspended license penalty and could result in far worse penalties if you don't take action immediately.

If you have been pulled over at a roadside checkpoint and found to be in possession of recreational or pharmaceutical drugs, you could be arrested for a DUI. Drugs & DUI cases (like marijuana cases) or prescription drug & DUI cases can occur even if you have a prescription for the drug in your system, as long as the police officer feels that your driving ability is impaired. If you have been involved in vehicular homicide, you could face felony charges and as many as 15 years in jail. Contact our firm for help regarding these cases and for answers to your questions about GA DUI by out of state driver, violation of probation or child endangerment.
