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.
