1. Can I defend myself for a DUI case?

4 DUI Questions I was recently talking with a client who had some pretty significant financial problems, and he asked me if he could defend himself in a DUI case. I certainly would not recommend that. DUI law is very technical and, believe it or not, it changes sometimes every six months, depending on what the Supreme Court or the Court of Appeals is doing in that area of law. It would not be advisable to represent yourself in a DUI, and I would love to speak with you about this. If you have any questions about your particular case, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.

4. What will happen if I get pulled over for a DUI?

I was talking with a client the other day who called me about getting pulled over and getting charged with a DUI. In Georgia, when you are charged with a DUI and you’re pulled over by law enforcement, they will do field sobriety testing. They will ask to see your license. They will also make requests of you about whether or not you want independent testing of your blood, breath or urine. 

The main issue that you need to be familiar with is the fact that you need to be compliant, that you do need to be respectful to the law enforcement officers – that will go a long way in resolving your case. I would always ask for independent testing, and I would make the request to have a blood test done as your choice of independent test.

If you have any questions about that, that’s very technical, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
