The police in Sandy Springs are everywhere. Late at night, you better believe they are going to pull you over. I was on Roswell Road, near the QT. The officer who stopped me said I was "having a hard time maintaining" my lane. I told him that I had no idea what he meant, but I was still asked to get out of the car.
I was asked where I was coming from. I told the officer "from a friend's house". He asked me more questions, but I started to say less and less.
Because I had recently had knee surgery from a soccer injury, I did not have to do the walking tests, but the officer waved his pen in front of my eyes and then asked me to blow into a small black box with a white tube going across the top. I would not blow.
I was cuffed and taken to Doraville jail. What a Hell hole! I took a breath test there so I would not lose my license. Then, the officer left me at Doraville, in their jail.
When I came to see Bubba Head, he told me that my case would likely get reduced (due to a fairly low breath test score) and that (for that reason) he was suggesting that one of his partners handle the case. I was hesitant at first, but followed his advice.
I did get the reduction offer, and took it. Mr. Head saved me a ton of money by suggesting that I not hire him, and hire his partner. That is why I am willing to write this letter. He treated me like I would hope all people would treat other people.
My DUI came after I crossed a painted line on the highway while trying to look at my GPS to find my way home from an office party. I was not drunk, but the officer berated me about drinking and driving. My legs were shaking, I was so intimidated. He just barked instructions about what I was to do next.
I did the roadside tests very well, but he said that he "saw it in my eyes". I could not beleive I was being arrested! When I got yo the Atlanta jail, they had taken my cell phone. I had no one's local phone number memorized, and the jailers were anything but helpful. I was more afraid of those female jailers than the officer who arrested me. I spent nearly 24 hours in jail!
It took over a year, but I was finally able to get a reduction to wreckless. Mr. Head knew I was ready to fight at trial. That reduction was a HUGE deal, because I am working toward becoming a CPA one day. That DUI might have kept me from receiving many job offers.
I paid. He won my case. Enough said. I lost enough sleep over this incident that I won't even come to Buckhead any more.
Back in Nashville TN where I belong
I had a no-lo plea to DUI in Smyrna in 1995, but that was not handled by Mr. Head. I went with another lawyer, because I heard that Mr. Head was expensive. My lawyer told me that would be off my record in 5 years.
Well, I got arrested for suspected drunk driving in Lawrenceville. I did not take any tests at all, because I did not trust the officer telling me I had failed to yield by turning in front of his car. He claimed to have had to jam on his breaks.
I told the policeman I had not been drinking, but he claimed to smell alcohol on me. It seemed to make him mad that I denied drinking, but I never changed my story.
I asked to call a lawyer, but was told I couldn't speak to one at this time. So, I did not blow at the station. They took me to Gwinnet jail.
I then contacted Mr. Head. He told me that in Gwinnet the prosecutor was tough on any repeat offenses, and that I would not be given but 2 choices: fight or DUI. I asked him about the 5 year deal for no-lo. He told me that I had gotten some bad advice.
I hired Mr. Head, and he was right on everything. I was first offered a chance to plead to DUI and go to jail for 60 days! I couldnt believe it! I would go broke if I was not able to be at my business for 2 months.
My back was against the wall. We fought the case, and the motion hearing went very well for my case. I did not testify.
Later, the case was set for trial. I was nervous as I have ever been, because the woman judge I had was known for punishing people who lost at DUI trials. Mr. Head told me to not be fearful, because we had a court reporter's record of that earlier hearing, and that we had an excellent case.
The day before trial, the prosecutor offered a reckless driving plea to me. I did not go to jail, and I did not lose my business.
My mother located Mr. Head using the Internet after I stupidly tried to drive my drunk friends home, so they would not get into a wreck. It was the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. I got caught for speeding along Cobb parkway. I ahve never been that frightened in my life. 17 years old and going to jail! That was the longest night of my life.
When we came to see Mr. Head, I did not know what to expect. He was about the age of my grandfather, which surprised me. He spent time getting to know more about me, including my goals, my GPA, and what college I planned to try to get admitted to.
He spoke to me and my parents for a while, and then asked them to wait in the lobby so he could ask me some questions that he would prefer that I feel totally comfortable in answering for him. Because I had taken a blood test (I could not quit crying and hyperventilating long enough to get a breath test), he asked me what was going to be in my blood. He was concerned that I might have used drugs. I told him NO. He then told me that the tests may pick up drug readings for some drugs, like marijuana, over a week after last used. I did not know that! But, I had not taken anything except some alcohol.
He also made me promise that I would thank my parents for standing behind me and helping me. I was mad about that at first, because he did not know how much crap I had been catching from them since this arrest. I was grounded indefinitely. But, he told me he had daughters, and that he knew how much it would mean to my parents if I just did that. So, I did do that later that night.
Mr. Head worked with the prosecutor and was able to get the DUI lowered to a reckless driving. I lost my licensce for 6 months, but he helped me to put off that suspension by delaying the plea date until I went off the college. I just took the bus for that part of my freshman year.
This will never happen to me again. I am now in grad school, and have no DUI on my record, thanks to Mr. Head.
My case was reduced at the second court appearance. I had to do a lot of community service and some other stuff. But I did not mind at all. No D.U.I. on my record was what I needed and asked Mr. Head to get for me. He did it!
I was chargd with hit and run and DUI. A cop located me on foot, I was not in my car. I never admitted driving. Plus, I didnt have any keys on me when the cop arrested me.
Bubba got the 911 tape and used it to get my case dismissed. I did not convicted of either charge against me.
I owe my job to this man.
On my way to our vacation place in St Simons, I was stopped just after turning on the causeway. I refused all test, because I was dog tired, and had flown to Brunswick from Hartsfield very late after my 16 hr day. I asked about the local lawyers, and found that they were cheap, but did not seem to interested in fighting my case.
After looking there, I asked our family attorney. He told me to ask Bubba Head. He gave me some other names, but I wanted him to help me on this nightmare in my life. I had to win.
My case was dimissed after he filed and fought the motions in my case. Need I say more than that?
Business Owner from Buckhead
What's to rate? He is the best. Did what he promised, and always kept me informed.
If you want results, Head,Thomas, Webb , & Willis is a firm you can count on. It doesn't get any better than them. They handled my case and I am forever in their debt. Thanks Bubbs for all you do!!!
