Don’t Lose Hope! We Offer Effective Defense Strategies in Multiple DUI Situations
If you have been charged with, or convicted of, a DUI in the past, you may think your current DUI situation is hopeless. While a repeat DUI charge certainly introduces additional challenges for your case, and harsher penalties, there are still many ways that an experienced DUI attorney can protect your rights.
Savannah DUI is a law firm that is focused on offering the best possible DUI defense to every client we represent. This experience and passion for this specific area of law allows us to craft a defense strategy that can be effective in your unique situation.
Aggressive Defense Strategies in Repeat DUI Situations
As someone who has been charged with a DUI in the past, it is important to take an aggressive approach to your defense strategy. Our attorneys will work closely with you to go over every aspect of the case so we can get you the results you need. Some of the options we have available include:
- Records Requests – We can request all the records surrounding your case (including dash-cam video) to look for even the smallest abnormality or discrepancy. These can often lead a judge to dismiss the case or render a not-guilty verdict.
- Officer Training – If a breathalyzer or other equipment was used in your arrest, we can look at whether or not the arresting officer had been properly trained on that equipment. If not, it can call into question the validity of the results of the test.
- Events Leading to Arrest – Why were you pulled over? How long did the arrest take? Were field sobriety tests used? At every step in the process there are opportunities for an experienced defense attorney to show why the prosecutor’s evidence is invalid.
- Dispute Evidence – Prosecuting attorneys will attempt to submit evidence to show you’re guilty. We’ll call into question the validity of each piece of evidence to help dismantle their case.
- Much More – As attorneys who are focused just on DUI cases, we have seen just about everything you can imagine. This experience gives us the ability to spot defense opportunities that other people would have missed.
Keep in mind that the state of Georgia actually accounts for several different “look-back” periods when it comes to handling multiple-DUI offender cases. Those with multiple DUIs within a 5 year period will be treated the most harshly, though the courts will also account for the number of DUIs within a 10 year period and within a defendant’s lifetime when determining punishments following a conviction. A second DUI conviction in Georgia will generally still be considered a misdemeanor, but it could be upgraded to a felony depending on the look-back periods and other aggravating factors like causing property damage or accidentally killing someone.
