Why Do I Need a DUI Attorney?

Why Do I Need a Qualified DUI Lawyer for My Duluth, GA DUI Charge?

Duluth, GA is one of several jurisdictions in Georgia that do not reduce unless there is a legal basis for the reduction. This means that in order to obtain a reduction or dismissal of your DUI charge in Duluth, GA, your lawyer must be able to show the prosecuting attorney why there is a problem with his/her case. Do not hire any lawyer in Duluth, GA that promises you a reduction of your DUI charge based upon his/her relationship with the prosecuting attorney. Any statement to this effect is simply not the truth in this jurisdiction. In order to obtain a reduction or dismissal of DUI charges in Duluth, GA, we generally have to conduct what are called motions hearings, and lawyers have to know what they are doing in order to be successful at motions hearings.

We Need to Raise Challenges to The Admissibility of The State’s Evidence in Your DUI Case

One of the most important aspects of your DUI case is the legal challenges that your DUI attorney should raise to the State’s evidence. Do not hire a DUI lawyer expecting that he/she will only be negotiating a plea or trying your case to a jury. One of the most important aspects of the defense to your case is pre-trial motions hearings. In pre-trial motions, we challenge the State’s ability to introduce DUI field sobriety test and post-arrest DUI tests (blood, breath, or urine tests). It is important to recognize that pre-trial motions must be filed within 10 days from the date of arraignment.

What Difference Does Hiring a DUI Lawyer Make?

Most people do not realize that a lawyer does not need to have any sort of specialized training or certification in order to begin handling DUI cases. A lawyer could graduate from law school, pass the Bar, and take your case a week later. He/she would undoubtedly be incredibly unprepared to actually defend you in the DUI case, but they would be permitted to try to help you. So, how do you know that your DUI lawyer actually knows what he/she is doing? One easy way is to consider only Board-Certified DUI lawyers. Then, you will know that the lawyer has met the rigorous Board Certification requirement established by the National College for DUI Defense. You will know that your DUI lawyer has met the required prerequisite of trials and motions hearings, and you will know that your DUI lawyer has passed the testing requirements to become Board Certified in DUI Defense.
