About Me

Some people simply can’t have a Georgia DUI conviction.  The Atlanta salesperson.  Johns Creek Surgeon.  Athens full-time student.  Lawrenceville small business owner.  Or Marietta professional driver.  There are other members of our community that also must have a valid driver’s license… and a clean criminal record.  


At the Chestney Law Firm, all we do is defend DUI charges.  We represent clients across the state, from those charged with drunk driving in North Georgia cities such as Cumming and Gainesville, to those arrested by the Atlanta DUI Task Force… all the way down to Peachtree City. Our clients are typically individuals that fit the description above.  They come to us because we provide the absolute most vigorous defense available to those facing DUI charges in Georgia.  And in the majority of cases, we are able to protect their freedom, ability to drive, and criminal record.


You may not feel at this time that you have a strong opportunity to avoid a conviction for the charges you face.  But the law provides protections to you that are very important.  Some examples are…



  • Was the initial stop legal?

  • Were the field sobriety tests properly administered?

  • Was the proper advice given prior to a request for a breath test?

  • Was the breathalyzer machine properly calibrated and tested for accuracy within the required time prior to your arrest?

  • Did medical conditions or medication contribute to the facts upon which the arrest was based?


The experienced Atlanta-based DUI attorneys at the Chestney Law Firm will zealously investigate every aspect of your arrest.  If there is something that provides grounds for reasonable doubt of your guilt, we will find it.  And we are prepared to go as far as necessary within Georgia law to protect your rights. 


If you are facing serious DUI or vehicular homicide charges in Atlanta or anywhere in Georgia, you deserve the best defense available.  Call the Chestney Law Firm today at 404-816-8777.
