Summary

My training as both a prosecutor and defense attorney gives me the ability to know what the other side is thinking and better defend DUI cases. Working for my family law firm familiarized me with civil law but making a foray into criminal law with the City of Atlanta Municipal Court led to my true passion in criminal law specifically DUI, drug and traffic cases.

I have been invited by other county prosecutors to be a guest instructor for DUI instruction courses at both the Georgia Public Safety and Training Center and various county locations. I also had the opportunity to design and teach a DUI class at the Atlanta Police Department Training Center, and assisted in redesigning the current DUI court system with the City of Atlanta Municipal Court. My training at the Georgia Public Safety and Training Center (GPSTC, the same training center where State Troopers receive their training and where all police officers supplement their training) helped me learn what both the police and State Troopers learn to make their DUI cases.

After returning to defense work, I continue to help those in need. My range of skills and training is a deadly combo to assist people charged with a DUI!

Q. Dui less safe drugs ticket, not pulled over,in parking lot of store
A: There is a lot of information you have left out in order for any attorney to give you direction. However, none of it should be posted because if the prosecution finds anything they can use against you they will. You need to start calling attorneys for free consultations to see if the hiring of a attorney can help your situation; especially if you were taking prescription medications.
Q. In a dui ...dring under the influence of drugs do they have to test you for the drug
A: In Georgia, They will usually test under the DRE (drug recognition expert) guidelines for field sobriety examinations. However, They don’t have to test for the specific drug itself as there is no requirement for that.
Q. Do I need to take dui class twice for 2 different citations that were given with in a month of each other?
A: This really depends on the negotiation with the prosecutor but technically yes you would need to take the classes twice.
