Challenging Evidence in Your DUI Case
Georgia enforces strict drunk driving laws. In Atlanta and jurisdictions
throughout the state, impaired drivers are prosecuted and penalized harshly.
This does not mean, however, that accused drivers don’t have options
to defend themselves and challenge the government’s case against
them. Law enforcement officers must have probable cause to stop and arrest
you, and they must comply with proper protocol. Our lawyers investigate
and challenge all aspects of your arrest to ensure your rights are protected
and to secure the best possible outcome.
