This past year I was pulled over for a DUI, I blew a .109 and the cop failed me on my three fields tests.
His straight talk, experience as a cop, knowledge of the court system/ courts allowed me to have the greatest trust in my lawyer. His experience as a cop, a quality I found to be uniquely helpful, proved to be highly useful.
The 1st plea from the solicitor , would have given me a 1st Conviction DUI and limited driving rights. Trusting Cory's judgement I chose to take the time to think about whether or not to take this to trial, His confidence on winning the case allowed us to reset the date. However, in lieu of resetting the date he was able to allow me to plea bargain for Reckless Driving.
Without his confidence, expert knowledge, reading of Bubba's Book, and his office's reputation. I probably would have settled for the 1st DUI Conviction.
I strongly will recommend Cory Yager as your DUI attorney.
I thank him and the courts for allowing me to move forward with my life.
I was visiting some friends in Atlanta one weekend when I was arrested for my first DUI. We went to dinner and had some margaritas/beer and were on our way to a bar in Buckhead. I made an illegal turn and was pulled over by the DUI task force. I refused to blow or do any of the field tests so I was immediately arrested and my car was towed.
I was referred to Cory Yager by his colleague, Bubba Head. I was immediately comfortable with Cory. He was very down to earth and told it like it was and was also passionate about winning my case. My DUI was dropped to reckless driving. I had to complete 100 hours community service, 2 hour MADD VIP class, 20 hour DUI class, and pay $1500 court fine. It seems excessive, but I was lucky to have Cory get this deal for me considering Georgia's no tolerance law.
After my court date, my probation was to be terminated because I had completed all the stipulations for the deal. My probation officer didn't feel the same way - they just wanted more money - she wanted me to complete 6 drug tests. Cory also took this before the judge and it was terminated that day.
If you're considering hiring Cory Yager, I would recommend him. He knows a lot of the prosecutors, judges, and cops (he is an ex-cop). He doesn't tell you what you want to hear, he tells you the truth and how things are going to take place. I was so lost because I had never gone through anything like this before and he was very compassionate in guiding me through that trivial part of my life. Also, the firm he works for has a very good reputation for winning, so that's always a plus.
