About Me

There are only four lawyers in Georgia who are board certified by the National College for DUI Defense, and Allen Trapp is one of them. The other three, as you might imagine, are in Atlanta and are much pricier.
He owns an Intoxilyzer 5000, is certified to administer the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests, and has also completed a Drug Recognition Expert program. No other lawyer in West Georgia can claim any of those accomplishments.
