He has also successfully argued for and won significantly reduced sentences in non-negotiated plea hearings, despite the State’s demands for more harsh sentences.
DUI cases can be more complex than murder trials. There are usually four governmental agencies involved in a single DUI case: law enforcement, DMV, OSAH, and the court having jurisdiction over the case. Evidentiary issues can involve toxicology, chain of custody, field sobriety testing, or implied consent, to name a few. Fortunately, most matters can and are resolved at the “pre-trial” stage. Having the same training in Field Sobriety as most law enforcement agents, Attorney Robert Duffee is particularly suited for trying these difficult cases. He has also had many cases successfully resolved through efforts of suppressing evidence before trial. This takes a lot of hard work at the investigation phase of the case.
Georgia Insurance Company Defense Lawsuit
A Georgia couple suffered fire damage to their property and filed a homeowner’s insurance claim in June 2006. Despite several requests, the homeowners received no response from the insurance company regarding the acceptance or denial of their claim. After suffering a year of delays and living in a property damaged by fire, the homeowners turned to Duffee Law Firm. We promptly filed suit against the insurance company and eventually had to try the case before a federal jury, which found in favor of our clients. The insurance company appealed the court’s decision.
We immediately responded to the appeal by scrutinizing the homeowner’s insurance coverage contract and identifying areas where the insurance company’s actions conflicted with Georgia law. Our skill at building an aggressive legal strategy combined with comprehensive knowledge of state law resulted in the denial of the insurance company’s appeal.
