Georgia Criminal Offense Case Wins

Just because you were arrested for DUI, does not mean that you are guilty—or that you have a drinking problem.

At Kohn & Yager, the majority of our clients just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Many were acting as a Good Samaritan, driving someone else home, or assisting a friend when pulled over. For most people we interview, the DUI arrest is often their first run-in with the law. Our goal at this law firm is to obtain a dismissal or reduction of your DUI charge so you can resume your life and be able to sleep soundly at night.

Quick Answers To FAQs

Is a DUI on My Record Forever In Georgia?

In the State of Georgia, sealing a DUI record or expunging a DUI record is not possible. Georgia has no diversion and does not allow a “first offender” for DUI, but it does allow first offender for virtually all other crimes, including sex crimes. This means that you will go to the grave with this offense of DUI on your record—even if you’re only a first-time offender. The consequences of a DUI conviction can impact your livelihood, your job options and your relationships for years to come.

DUI Arrest? Driver’s License Taken from YOU? Important 10-Day ALS Appeal WARNING to Avoid Suspension

If your driver’s license was taken after your Georgia DUI arrest, then it is 99% certain that you need to file an appeal of the PENDING ADMINISTRATIVE LICENSE SUSPENSION that results from this arrest.

Will I Go To Jail If Convicted Of DUI?

First time DUI offenders are required by law to spend 24 hours in jail. However, judges enforce this differently from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

Will I Lose My Job If I Have A DUI On My Record?

In professions where driving is necessary, being charged with DUI can have an impact on your ability to perform your job. Commercial drivers, chauffeurs and others in driving-related roles could be terminated for having a suspended license.

Can I Afford To Hire Kohn & Yager?

Private attorneys must charge fees to stay in business. The stakes are high when facing a DUI charge—and working with an attorney experienced in obtaining great results for his or her DUI clients is certainly worth the investment. In the long run, a DUI conviction will cost you FAR more than legal expenses to fight your DUI charges.

When selecting a lawyer, it's important to find one who focuses on DUI law and has been trained on field sobriety evaluations, both of Georgia’s breathalyzer devices, and who can also challenge blood tests. This forensic background ensures that your DUI attorney has the background necessary to challenge the police and prosecution's case against you.

Cost is a concern for many people when hiring an attorney. Fortunately, our firm accepts credit cards, and offers a number of fee levels and payment plans to suit your budget.

How Does Kohn & Yager Win So Many DUI Cases?

The main difference between our firm and most is that we do not take a case with the idea it is going to be resolved as a mere guilty plea to DUI. We know the hundreds of ways that DUI cases can be won, even under seemingly improbable circumstances, and we try to leverage the case on those legal grounds. We are not seeking to sign up a client who WANTS to just plead guilty to DUI.

What you should know is that a DUI arrest doesn't have to end in a DUI conviction. We can prove (with expert witnesses) that the field sobriety tests used in drunk-driving cases are highly subjective. We challenge breathalyzer tests every day, and know that both breath and blood tests are subject to having a myriad of potential errors.

In addition, law enforcement officers must follow proper protocol to ensure that your traffic stop and arrest were lawful. Police officers are prone to make mistakes, especially in cases where the officer thinks that the evidence is an “open and shut” case. This means that getting a DUI charge reduced, dismissed or even obtaining an acquittal at trial is something that happens with the majority of our clients year after year. Our attorneys are on-call to answer your DUI questions at all hours - (404) 800-3884. You can also ask us your legal questions online for free here.
