Dedicated Floyd County DUI Lawyers Determined to Fight For Your Rights – Aggressive DUI Representation You Deserve:

We have handled thousands of DUI cases, had hundreds of DUI arrests reduced to non-DUI traffic offenses like reckless driving prior to trial, and tried over of one hundred DUI Jury Trials. Unlike many Georgia DUI firms, we have valuable Not Guilty Jury Trial Experience, which is very important when defending a DUI charge. Ask other lawyers when was the last time they heard a jury say the words “Not Guilty” in a DUI Case. You will be surprised at how many so-called “expert DUI lawyers” cannot give you a straight answer.


There are Two Different Courts, Two Separate Suspensions, and the Ten-Day Letter. After a Georgia DUI arrest, if your breath or blood alcohol registers over .08 within three hours of driving, or you refuse a state administered chemical test of your blood, breath or urine, Georgia DUI law requires that you be issued a Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) Form 1205 as well at a Criminal Court summons or a Uniform Traffic Citation for DUI. The DDS Form 1205 is a 30 day temporary driver’s license, but it is also a notice of intention to suspend your driver’s license, as the arresting officer has sworn that he had reasonable grounds to arrest you for DUI. more

The Limits of Charging Lesser Included Offenses For First-Degree Vehicular Homicide

The front of the United States Supreme Court The record shows that Otuwa Otuwa was in a single-vehicle accident on a residential road on August 3, 2008. He lost control of his car, crashed through a stop sign and street sign, veered off of the road, and flipped multiple times. Otuwa’s sister and another passenger were thrown from the vehicle and died of their injuries. Otuwa and a separate passenger survived. Reportedly, Otuwa smelled strongly of alcohol and his eyes were red and glassy. A preliminary roadside breath test showed that Otuwa had been drinking and returned a numerical result of .175 BAC. A further investigation showed that he was traveling at approximately 93 mph at the time of the accident. He was arrested and charged with two counts each of first-degree vehicular homicide by less-safe DUI, by per-se DUI, and by reckless driving, and less-safe DUI, per-se DUI, and reckless driving for a total of nine counts. more

Advice as to who you decide to hire as your Floyd County DUI lawyer: 1) Don’t hire a DUI lawyer based solely on price. Sometimes the cheapest lawyer–especially if they plea you to a DUI you don’t deserve at the first opportunity–can be the most expensive. Cost per hour is the best way to compare lawyers. If a lawyer charges $1000, but only spends an hour on your case, that’s $1000 dollars an hour! We, unlike bargain basement firms, spend an average of 10 hours on every DUI case. 2)  Ask any attorney that you speak with whether he/she has tried any DUI jury trials and how many not guilty verdicts he/she has received in the past 2 years; 3)  Ask any attorney that you speak with whether he/she has studied police field sobriety training manuals and breath test machine, owner’s and area supervisor’s manuals. If not, they cannot adequately cross examine DUI police officers or breath test operators. A DUI lawyer who can’t answer these questions is not ready for a real DUI jury trial and is not worth your time and money.
