DUI Lawyer in DeKalb County
Drugs & DUI cases carry the same penalties as drunk driving. Many drivers who take prescription medications are surprised to find that they may have to defend themselves on
prescription drug & DUI charges. If you have been charged with a first-time DUI, you are facing up to a year in jail, large fines, and a one year suspension of your driving privileges. The penalties for a
2nd DUI or a
3rd DUI offense are more severe. With over 18 years of experience, our legal team has a thorough understanding of how the
field sobriety tests should be administered. Having an intimate knowledge of the science behind
blood and breath tests we know how to challenge the validity of these test results. A 1st DUI defense lawyer at our firm is prepared to use our considerable expertise and resources to expose flaws in the prosecution's case and challenge the evidence. Since every case is unique we provide a tailor-made defense based on the specific circumstances of your case whether you are charged with
