Don’t Give In and Never Give Up Hope!
Atlanta drunk driving lawyer Bubba Head and his Atlanta criminal defense lawyers FIGHT cases all across Georgia. Don’t make the same mistake as so many others arrested for drunk driving (impaired driving) and plead guilty to the DUI-DWI-OWI-OUI charge. If you went to your physician and learned that you had cancer, would you just quit, without a fight? Being arrested for DUI is like having LEGAL CANCER. The burden of proof is on the state prosecutor, meaning that they must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you are guilty of the crime of DUI for which you are charged. Fortunately, hundreds of successful DUI defense strategies are at our disposal, including excluding breath test and field sobriety test results. A knowledgeable DUI criminal trial attorney knows how to challenge the DUI police evidence against you. In many jurisdictions, a high percentage of driving under the influence cases challenged by a resourceful DUI attorney can result in your drunk driving charges being reduced, dismissed, or possibly be resolved through your acquittal at trial.
Don’t Hire a Criminal Attorney Who Doesn’t Know How to Win DUI Cases
Drunk driving defense is an extremely technical field of criminal law, requiring knowledge of constitutional provisions and statutory DUI laws in your state. Also, a full understanding of police arrest procedures, and the complex scientific and medical evidence that DUI prosecutors will seek to use against you in court, is mandatory for any sought-after DUI lawyer. If you go to a DUI criminal attorney who lacks the training and knowledge to minimize the prosecution’s case, potential intoxicated driving defenses to the criminal charges will never be properly raised and asserted. Any good DUI lawyer will admit that a drunk driving lawyer has to know as much or more about criminal trial practice as a lawyer defending a murder case to be able to effectively handle your drinking and driving case.
Do Not Trust Police Evidence
Some of the most common DUI defenses involve the legality of the initial traffic stop, the voluntary taking of field sobriety tests, issues surrounding the unreliability of the DUI sobriety tests (particularly when done incorrectly), and whether your arrest was legal. Police officers cannot pull you over for no reason. Even in the 38 states that allow DUI checkpoints, many legal challenges have been successful.
Our DUI Lawyers Can Determine if You Were Stopped Illegally
Evidence that a crime occurred or was being committed as a reason to pull you over must be established by the prosecutor at court. Many times, DUI police videos help us get drunken driving cases dismissed. If a top DUI criminal attorney can prove that there was no probable cause for your vehicle being stopped, or that the officer failed to gather sufficient proof of your “impairment” by alcohol or drugs to make a custodial arrest (i.e., to handcuff you instead of letting you go after signing your traffic ticket), your whole driving under the influence case can be thrown out.
Blew Over the Limit? We Can Get Your Breath Test Results Excluded
The best DUI criminal defense attorneys know dozens of ways to TOTALLY EXCLUDE your breath test or blood test results. Atlanta DUI lawyer William “Bubba” Head co-authored a 1991 book outlining “101 Ways to
Avoid a Drunk Driving Conviction.” If damaging evidence can be excluded, this cripples the DUI prosecution’s case against you in many instances.
Plus, a skilled DUI attorney knows critical mechanical and procedural errors that can cause the breathalyzer machine (or even a blood test device) to render an inaccurate or unreliable breath test reading. These include:
- Failure to observe periodic maintenance requirements on the breath test instrument
- Improper administration of the breath test by the arresting officer
- Flawed or incomplete calibration check records
- Breath test machine malfunctions
- Discovering that a certain medical condition may have caused an additive reading that is a “false positive.”
Your criminal defense attorney, working with a top expert witness on breath tests, can determine if any administration, observation, or BAC test results errors likely affected your breathalyzer evidence. This can be an effective, winning defense against your pending impaired driving charges.
The four brands of breath test machines used in the USA are:
How Far Over the Legal Limit Were You?
DUI breath tests and DUI blood tests often are items of essential evidence used by the prosecution to prove that your breath alcohol level (BAL) or blood alcohol content (BAC) was over the legal limit. These cases are often called DUI Per Se cases. For all drivers age 21 and over who are not driving a commercial vehicle, the BAC level is 0.08 or more. Drivers under age 21 are held to a ZERO BAC standard, but the breath test limit can be 0.00, 0.01 or 0.02 under state DUI laws. Use our quick BAC calculator to determine your level of intoxication.
Don’t Lose Your Money, Job, and Relationships Because of a DUI
