Our client was charged with DUI-Alcohol, DUI-Drugs, and DUI-Multiple Substances in Coweta County, Georgia. Although the client admitted to smoking marijuana earlier in the day, admitted to drinking 3 or 4 beers before driving, and performed poorly on field sobriety tests according to the arresting officer, we obtained a "Not Guilty" verdict on all charges.
Our client was charged with DUI-Less Safe and operating a vehicle without headlights more than 30 minutes after sunset. After we introduced evidence of the official time of sunset from the U.S. Naval Observatory, Cherokee County State Court Judge Alan Jordan entered a directed verdict of "Not Guilty" on the headlight charge. Although our client admitted to drinking wine before driving, a Cherokee County jury deliberated only 15 minutes before returning a "Not Guilty" verdict on the DUI-Less Safe charge.
Our client, an over-the-road truck driver, was arrested for DUI-Per Se and Hit and Run after he allegedly sideswiped a parked car while entering his neighborhood during a torrential storm. Despite being offered a plea deal that would have avoided jail time, we took the case to a jury trial in Bartow County Superior Courtand received a Not-Guilty verdict on the DUI-Per se charge
Our client was arrested by Cobb County Police for DUI-Less Safe
and Hit and Run after striking another vehicle at a traffic light andthen driving approximately one and a half miles. We defendedthe case by attacking the arresting officer's performance ofstandardized field sobriety tests based on his failure to properlymedically qualify the client for the tests. As a result, theDUI-Less Safe charge was reduced to Reckless Driving, andthe Hit and Run charge was reduced to Failure to Report anAccident. Accordingly, the client's driving privileges were preserved and he avoided jail time.
Our client, who was under the age of 21, was arrested for DUI-Per Se by Alpharetta Police. Since the client had a history of chronic acid reflux, we argued that the test result was not reliable. Specifically, we argued that he suffered an acid reflux attack prior to the administration of the breath test, thereby introducing unmetabolized alcohol from the stomach into the esophagus, thus tainting the breath sample. Accordingly, the DUI-Per Se chargewas reduced to Reckless Driving.
