Legal Defense for DUI Charges in Brookhaven

The state of Georgia is known to be especially harsh for their criminal penalties and DUI is no different. If you have recently been arrested for DUI, then you owe it to yourself to seek legal counsel from a knowledgeable Brookhaven DUI attorney from the Law Offices of Richard S. Lawson. At our firm, we focus our entire practice on DUI defense and we stay abreast of scientific and legal developments in the field of DUI laws and how they could impact your case.

Our lead attorney at the firm is a former DUI prosecutor who has handled more than 4,900 DUI cases in Georgia. With over 25 years of experience in DUI defense, we have a well-rounded knowledge of the science behind field sobriety tests, blood, and breath and urine tests. As there are many aspects to a DUI defense, and no two cases are identical, it will be critical for us to meet with you as soon as possible so we can represent you before your ALS hearing.

DUI Areas of Practice

DUI cases are time sensitive; therefore, in order for us to defend your case and your suspended license, we will need to begin gathering evidence as soon as possible. At the onset we can explain the DUI process and how to work on restoring your driving privileges. Whether you were arrested for drugs & DUI, or DUI under 21, we can challenge every aspect of your case including the blood & breath tests. Even marijuana cases can pose a threat to your license, as would any chemical test refusals/alleged refusals.

Our firm can handle virtually any type of DUI case ranging from GA DUI by out of state driver, to a minor in possession of alcohol charge to violation of probation or even vehicular homicide. Regardless of the circumstances of your cases, we will pursue reduced charges, lighter sentencing and lighter penalties at all costs. If you are wondering if you need a DUI lawyer, the answer is yes! Whether this is your first time DUI, or if you have prior convictions, hiring a Brookhaven DUI lawyer can make a huge impact in your case.

Aggressive & Compassionate DUI Defense

DUI is one of the most common reasons that normal people get arrested. The sooner you contact our firm, the sooner we can get started building your defense. If you were arrested at a roadside checkpoint, or on your way home, we can explain the difference between a plea bargain vs. trial and if you are facing a child endangerment charge, we will work tirelessly to protect you and your parental rights.

Our mission is to reduce or eliminate the negative ramifications of a DUI arrest and help you to retain your driver's license. As a former prosecutor, Richard Lawson is closely familiar with the strategies used to prosecute DUI cases. His former experience makes him uniquely qualified to defend DUI cases, as well as work towards more favorable outcomes for his clients. To learn more about how the firm can help you, your first step will be to contact us right away so we can inform you on the best way to proceed forward.
