Georgia Blood & Breath Tests
Atlanta DUI Defense Attorney with 20 Years' Experience
One of the most common ways for a police officer to determine if there
is alcohol in your system is by way of a blood or breath test. Unfortunately,
what law enforcement relies upon to provide conclusive evidence is often
faulty and defective. Our firm is passionate about defending those who
believe they were wrongly charged with a DUI based on a blood or breath test.
The most important first step we'll take is to review the evidence
against you. The founder of our firm, Richard S. Lawson, is considered

Georgia's DUI laws like few other attorneys and maintains a trusted
reputation throughout the community.

What variables may affect my BAC level?
According to the state of Georgia, anytime you are driving a vehicle you
have given "implied consent" to be tested for blood alcohol
concentration (BAC). This means that if you exhibit behavior that leads
an officer to suspect intoxication at the wheel, they can pull you over
and administer a blood or breath test.
The breath test is the most common type of BAC test used, but what many
citizens don't know is that Georgia continues to use outdate breathalyzer
technology. Because it can be so inaccurate, there are a number of different
variables which may affect your indicated BAC level.
These factors can include:
- How long ago the alcohol was consumed
- Whether or not you hyperventilated before the test
- Your core body temperature
- If you are on a high protein diet
- Radio frequency interference with the test
- The presence of mouth alcohol from cough syrup
- If you were exposed to substance that mimic alcohol
All of these variables and more have a huge impact on your test results
but are far too often disregarded by police officers. It is our goal to
build a strong defense based on factors that may have caused you to test
with a higher BAC level than you actually had.
