Atlanta DUI / DWI Defense Attorneys
60+ Years of Combined Experience on Your Side
The consequences of a DUI conviction can be far-reaching. If convicted for drunk driving, you face license suspension, jail time, required public service, and large fines. In addition, your job could be jeopardized, your insurance premiums will increase substantially and a conviction will appear on your permanent criminal record. The exact penalties will depend heavily on the factors in your case. For example, the higher your blood alcohol content (BAC), the more severe the penalties. Regardless of the exact circumstances of your case, our firm is here to help.
We work hard to minimize the effects that a DUI conviction has on our clients' lives. While each case is different, we may be able to reduce the charges or sentence against you. When there are good reasons to challenge the evidence, we will consult with forensic experts and field sobriety test trainers to expose mistakes on the part of arresting officers or technical problems with the Breathalyzer.
What Is DUI “Per Se”?
In the state of Georgia, DUI can be charged in two different ways. The first is if your BAC is 0.08% or higher, which leads to “rebuttable presumption.” This is known as DUI “Per Se.” However, you can still be charged with DUI even if your BAC is technically below the legal limit. If the police officer can show that you are mentally and/or physically impaired, you could still be criminally charged.
