First, just because a Police Officer arrests you for DUI doesn’t mean you’re guilty. We will try to get your case dismissed or reduced to a lesser charge. We can often get State’s evidence thrown out (that is, declared inadmissible). We have also successfully tried many DUI cases. A lifelong Prosecutor recently claimed that it is harder for a Defense Lawyer to win a DUI trial than it is to win a murder or rape trial. You don’t want just any attorney representing you in a DUI. You want a lawyer who not only knows the law inside and out but also someone who knows the judges, prosecutors, police officers and their training, expert witnesses. Don Turner and Manal Chehimi have spent over 40 years combined building reputations and relationships throughout Metro Atlanta and Northern Georgia.
We care about our clients, and we know how to defend every type of DUI case.
Some of Our DUI Success Stories
Client was involved in a one car accident and charged with a DUI, 9th in their lifetime.
Client refused to take a breath or blood test. After carefully reviewing the case DCT & Associates was able to determine several discrepancies in the officer’s account of what occurred. Motions to suppress evidence were filed. Seven court appearances later the DUI was dismissed for lack of evidence.
Client admitted to having two drinks. DCT & Associates was able to prove the amount of alcohol consumed could NOT scientifically result in a breath test of 0.12. Through the use of an expert witness DCT & Associates convinced the jury the Intoxilyzer 5000 registered a False Reading. Jury Verdict: Not Guilty!
Client was stopped for speeding, failed the Field Sobriety Tests and refused the breath or blood test. After careful & detailed review of all documentation received from the Open Records Request & Discovery, DCT & Associates determined the officer wrote an incorrect code section on the Uniform Traffic Citation. The case was dismissed at trial.
Client was charged with DUI and breath test results of 0.18. Careful review of the facts DCT & Associates identified the officer failed to inform the client of their implied consent rights. Motion(s) to suppress evidence were filed and the client was convicted of a lesser traffic charge – Reckless Driving, thereby avoiding jail time.
Client passed a police officer driving in the opposite direction. The officer did a u-turn & stopped the client for allegedly speeding, failure to maintain lane and driving with high beam headlights. Client was subsequently arrested for DUI and submitted to a breath test. After careful investigation and research DCT & Associates requested a Motions Hearing and demonstrated the results of the state administered breath test were illegally obtained. The presiding Judge ruled in favor of the Motion.
