Serving Atlanta and North Georgia
Being arrested for Driving Under the Influence ("DUI") can be a stressful and humiliating experience. In addition to the indignity of being handcuffed, photographed, and fingerprinted, a DUI conviction can lead to significant penalties including jail time, fines, community service, court-ordered substance abuse treatment, suspension of your driver’s license, and increased auto insurance premiums.
If you have had a prior conviction for DUI, your picture can also be published in the local paper, and you can be forced to surrender the license plate on any car you own. With the stakes so high, it is vitally important that you hire an experienced DUI defense attorney to protect your rights and give you the best chance of winning your case.
We Are Georgia DUI Defense Specialists
DUI cases are very complex because of arresting officers’ use of Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (“SFSTs”) and chemical testing of blood, breath, and urine. Officers who make DUI arrests have specialized training and knowledge that allow them to qualify as expert witnesses on SFSTs and chemical testing in court. To successfully defend a DUI case, an attorney also needs to have specialized training and knowledge in SFSTs and chemical testing. If you have been arrested for DUI, do not trust your future to a general practice attorney who lacks the training and experience to provide the zealous defense that you deserve. The attorneys of The Dickerson Firm have all completed specialized training in SFSTs and chemical testing. Jeff Dickerson is a member of the DUI Defense Lawyer’s Association, which is the premier national organization of attorneys dedicated to DUI defense. Additionally, Jeff Dickerson has been recognized as one of the Top 100 DUI defense attorneys by the National Trial Lawyers and has achieved a perfect 10 out of 10 rating on Avvo.com.
