The Aggressive Defense You Need
A DUI conviction can result in harsh consequences in Georgia, from fines to a license suspension to jail time in some cases. A DUI may also affect your personal and professional life, hurting your child custody case or causing you to lose your job.
As your law firm, we will work diligently to prevent a conviction and keep your criminal record clean. When we take on your case, we will investigate the following critical elements, among other factors:
- Did police have the right to stop your vehicle?
- Were field sobriety tests administered properly?
- Was the breath test device calibrated correctly?
- Is the breath or blood test evidence admissible?
As we uncover the answers to these questions, we will build the best possible defense strategy to protect your reputation, your future and your freedom.
A recent case proves that drivers can overcome DUI charges
After fierce negotiations, attorney Houston Washburn successfully negotiated a dismissal of a client’s DUI, speeding and taillight charges. In exchange, a plea to reckless driving kept the DUI off our client’s record, keeping our client’s license and saving his new job.
