Carrollton DUI Defense Lawyer

Evidence Is Everything

Carrollton DUI defense attorney Robert Duffee has represented a wide range of people charged with alcohol-related offenses such as DUI, DWI and MUI.

Whether you are a truck driver or a soccer mom, being charged with a DUI or DWI can be life-changing. There have been cases of people being falsely charged due to problems with the Breathalyzer because it is susceptible to error.

Breathalyzers measure alcohol levels by having people blow into a mouthpiece. An incorrectly elevated reading is possible for many reasons:

  • Menthol smokeless tobacco
  • Mints, mouthwash or gum
  • Denture adhesive
  • Use of an asthma inhaler
  • Blood in the mouth due to a fight or accident
  • Increased body temperature due to illness, exertion or stress
  • The unit shares an electrical outlet with a microwave, radio or other device that may cause fluctuations in power

You need a skilled lawyer to review the evidence against you. Contact Duffee Law Firm immediately. Evidence is crucial to enforcing Georgia drunk driving laws. Attorney Robert Duffee has training in Field Sobriety Testing (FST), and knows how to challenge an arresting officer's alleged findings. Depending upon your circumstances, we may be able to negotiate with the state to get your charges reduced or dismissed.

Can You Keep Your Driver's License?

If you have been charged with driving under the influence, the arresting officer will file paperwork to have your license suspended. If you take no action within 10 days from the date of arrest, your license will likely be suspended.

It is very important that you contact us at 770-884-6402 (toll free at 877-284-4979) as soon as possible so we can take steps to prevent or delay that.

Even if your license is eventually suspended, we may be able to help you secure a limited or probationary license for you.
