Resaca DUI Lawyer
A DUI offense can occur on the most unsuspecting night. Many people are unaware of the amount of alcohol that can cause them to be over the .08 blood alcohol concentration limit. It usually is lower than they think and causes them to drive impaired. However, it is important to recognize that a DUI charge is not a conviction! There are steps you can take to prevent a DUI charge from remaining on your record. Contact our experienced Resaca DUI Lawyers today for a free consultation if you or a loved one has been accused of DUI.
Defenses for Your Resaca DUI Charge
There are a variety of defenses your DUI Lawyer in Resaca can use to support and bolster your case. After exclusively practicing DUI law for over 25 years, our lawyers know how to make the law work for you.

Some of the issues we will look into include, but are not limited to:
- Whether the initial stop was conducted lawfully?
- If the arrest occurred if an area you are familiar with?
- Whether you have any health conditions that could have affected your behavior?
- Were you correctly read Georgia's Implied Consent Notice?
- Did you consent to a chemical test?
- The maintenance log of the Breathalyzer (if it was used)
- The arresting officer's history with DUI arrests
- Did you participate in field sobriety tests?
- Did the officer tell you that you were under arrest?
- If you were stopped at a roadblock, if the roadblock was properly conducted?
- What did you say to the officer?
