Many people have their first contact with the criminal justice system after being stopped for a minor driving infraction or at a sobriety checkpoint and are subsequently charged with DUI. This is usually a very upsetting experience, or even frightening. Law enforcement can be far from friendly when they suspect that you have been drinking and driving. If you have been caught in the system on a first DUI offense, it is imperative that you get help from an Alpharetta DUI lawyer from our firm. Our legal team has over 20 years of experience, and has resolved over 46,000 DUI cases to date. Our lead attorney, Richard S. Lawson, is a former DUI prosecutor and has a great deal of knowledge and experience gained on both sides of the criminal justice system. If it will best serve your interests, we will take your case to trial and fight for an acquittal. We also get involved in early negotiations to pursue a dismissal when the case has serious errors or flaws.
DUI Lawyer Serving Roswell and Alpharetta
Our firm exclusively handles DUI defense, and is not involved in any other area of the law. Our focus on this area has allowed us to gain great insight and skill into how to best defend against DUI charges. In the case of a 1st DUI, it is advised that you contact us immediately after your arrest. The sooner we get involved, the more that could be done to assist you. We will analyze all the evidence in your case, from the moment you were pulled over by law enforcement. Even the initial police stop can be an issue if there was no probable cause to do so. We will then evaluate any testing procedures. Our founding attorney is certified as a field sobriety test instructor by the NHTSA, and can easily identify the errors in administration of the tests. There could also be effective challenges of BAC (blood alcohol concentration) evidence such as breath and blood tests. We are familiar with every aspect of the DUI process, and when we take on a case, we give it our full attention. You may have been falsely accused; there could be mitigating situations such as errors in procedure or testing. No matter what your case involves, we can advise you as to the best course of action.
