If you’re like most drivers, you know driving under the influence (DUI) is against the law—and in light of the number of motorists who are injured or killed in alcohol-related traffic accidents, it’s easy to see why. Yet despite the dangers associated with drunk driving, thousands of individuals are charged with the offense in Union County, GA alone.
Consult With An Attorney After Your DUI Arrest
Unfortunately, although many of these arrests are unwarranted, those who are arrested face penalties ranging from a fine to jail time. In light of this fact, it is more important than ever for you to discuss your arrest with an attorney immediately—and as one of the most successful DUI defense attorneys in the nation, no one’s better equipped to handle your case than William C. (Bubba) Head.
When you retain Mr. Head as your attorney, you can rest assured that he and his team of legal experts will launch a thorough investigation into your case to determine whether the charges against you are valid. Remember, the only way you can be convicted of DUI is if the prosecution proves you are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt—and by conducting an independent analysis of the evidence in your case, the Law Offices of William C. Head can ensure any illegally obtained evidence will not be used against you in court.
Checking The Validity Of Your Breath Test Results
In many cases, Mr. Head may even evaluate your breathalyzer test results to determine whether you were actually in violation of the state’s blood alcohol content (BAC) laws at the time of your arrest. Georgia’s breath testing methods have been under attack by Mr. Head for the past five years. In fact, research has shown that certain medical conditions—such as diabetes and acid reflux disease—can falsely inflate a person’s BAC. Likewise, using certain products, including mouthwash, breath mints, and even chewing gum, can also produce false results.
Although you may be concerned with the cost of hiring an attorney, it is important to realize that, with all of the expenses you may incur if you are convicted of DUI, obtaining legal aid may be a wise investment. Indeed, with the right defense strategy, many drivers are able to get their charges reduced or even dismissed completely.
