About Me

If you are charged with DUI or another criminal offense - YOU need an experienced and knowledgeable Atlanta criminal defense lawyer. I have had the same Standardized Field Sobriety training given to the police officer who pulled you over. The same police officer who likely had you perform a series of field sobriety tests that were DESIGNED TO BE FAILED. You want a lawyer with a trained eye in determining whether the police gave you proper instructions for performing the field sobriety tests, whether you performed the tests properly, and whether you were fairly graded. I take advanced seminars every year to keep up to date with the latest developments in breath and blood testing. If you blew a high number or gave a blood sample - ALL IS NOT LOST. The police have very specific rules and guidelines to follow. I know what they are I have helped many clients achieve favorable outcomes.

He is death penalty certified, highly trained in DUI law and procedures and, he applies those learned skills with a natural courtroom flair that cannot be taught. Being a great lawyer has to start be being a great man, and that starts with honesty in his advocacy and treatment of others.
