Our Cobb County DUI Lawyers Help You Save Your Driver's License, Avoid Jail, and Avoid a Criminal Conviction
If you have been arrested for DUI in Cobb County, you probably feel worried, disappointed, and possibly angry. If you have never experienced the process of navigating the criminal justice system after a DUI arrest, you likely have questions about the potential long term consequences of a DUI conviction, the effect a DUI could have on your driver's license, and whether you will have to return to jail. If you have previously been through the process, you understand how daunting the process can be, and you likely understand that the potential punishment for a second or third DUI can be much more severe than your prior experience. With the potential for significant jail time, loss of your driver's license for more than one year, and cancellation of your auto insurance, you are anxious to retain an attorney who can help you beat the charge outright or work to minimize the punishment.

What are some possible Defenses to a Cobb County DUI?
If you are facing a DUI charge in Georgia, there are a number of potential defenses that we may be able to raise in your case.
One common defense is that the traffic stop that led to your arrest was unlawful. For example, if the police did not have reasonable articulable suspicion to pull you over, or if they violated your rights during the stop, any evidence they obtained may be deemed inadmissible in court.
Another possible defense is that the breath or blood test used to determine your blood alcohol content (BAC) was inaccurate or unreliable. This could happen if the testing equipment was not properly calibrated, or if the sample was not properly collected or stored.
We may also argue that there were other factors that could have affected your ability to operate a vehicle safely, such as a medical condition, a prescription medication, or even fatigue.
Finally, it is important to remember that the prosecution bears the burden of proving beyond a reasonable doubt that you were operating a vehicle under the influence. If they cannot meet this standard, you may be acquitted of the charges against you.
