The Best DUI Lawyers Never Give Up!
Atlanta drunk driving lawyer Bubba Head and his Atlanta criminal defense lawyers FIGHT cases 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 LEGAL CANCER. The burden of proof is on the prosecuting attorney, 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 DUI defense strategies exist, including breath tests results and field sobriety test exclusion. A knowledgeable DUI criminal trial expert 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 by way of your acquittal at trial.
Drunk Driving Lawyers Who Vigorously Defend Against Impaired Driving Charges
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 procedures, and the complex scientific and medical evidence that DUI prosecutors will seek to use against you in court, is mandatory for a DUI lawyer. If you go to a DUI criminal attorney who lacks the training and knowledge of what to do and when to do it, potential intoxicated driving defenses to the criminal charges that may be available to you 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.
Police Mistakes Work to Your Advantage
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 are successful. Evidence that a crime has occurred or is being committed 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 traffic stop, or that the officer failed to gather sufficient proof of “impairment” by alcohol or by drugs to make a custodial arrest (i.e., to cuff you instead of letting you go after signing your traffic ticket), your whole driving under the influence case can be thrown out.
How to Beat a Breathalyzer
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 applicable legal limit. These cases are often called DUI Per Se cases. For all drivers age 21 and over who are not behind the wheel of 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.

How To Win Your DWI-DUI Case
The best DUI criminal defense attorneys know dozens of ways to TOTALLY EXCLUDE many breath test or blood test results. Atlanta DUI lawyer William “Bubba” Head co-authored a 1991 book outlining “101 Ways to to Avoid a Drunk Driving Conviction.” If evidence can be excluded, this cripples the DUI prosecution’s case in many instances.
Plus, a skilled DUI attorney knows other critical defense factors that could result in the breathalyzer machine (or even a blood test device) to render an inaccurate or unreliable breath test reading. This may include failure to observe periodic maintenance requirements on the breath test instrument, improper administration of the breath test by the officer, locating calibration check records that are flawed or incomplete, finding that the breath test device has malfunctioned, and discovering that certain medical conditions of the person who “blew” into the breath machine may have caused an additive reading that is a “false positive.”
Your criminal defense attorney, working with an expert witness on breath tests, can determine if any administration, observation, or BAC test results reporting errors likely affected your breathalyzer evidence. This may be an effective, winning defense against your pending impaired driving charges.
A DUI Conviction Means Lifelong DUI Penalties
A drunk driving conviction leads to tough DUI penalties that can last a lifetime, and also impact your family for generations. Read Mr. Head’s list of “97 Consequences of a DUI Conviction” and increase your resolve to seek the best possible DUI attorney for your pending drunk driving case. Remember: You only get ONE chance to win, so why trust this important matter to an inexperienced criminal attorney or unproven DUI attorney?
