INTERVIEWER: Can you recall an exact moment when you decided to become a DUI lawyer?

JASON CERBONE: No, I always wanted to be a criminal defense trial lawyer. Trying a DUI case in front of the jury is my favorite thing to do. I have to be in the courtroom to be happy whether I get paid for it or not. And, I want to do it better than anybody has ever done it. It is an enormous challenge and it is harder than anything else that I have ever done -- so I do it. And it makes me happy when I do it well.

Jason Cerbone is a DUI Defense Lawyer in Savannah, Georgia at Cerbone DUI Defense. He is chosen by medical professionals, lawyers, bail-bondsmen, commissioners, bankers, and SCAD students, to name a few. Jason Cerbone is trying to give you the strongest DUI defense available in Savannah, Georgia. He is a certified instructor in DUI Standardized Field Sobriety Testing recognized by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the International Association of Chiefs of Police.

Standing before the testifying police officer, Jason knew the DUI Field Sobriety Tests were given incorrectly on this DUI arrest he wanted to get the officer to admit it. So, patiently, persistently, question after question, he calmly brought the officer toward the goal. The officer didn't know he destroyed the prosecution's case. But the judge did. And when Jason asked the judge to dismiss the DUI charges against Marty, the Bail Bondsman, he did. Yet another case. Yet another win.

Take the Golf Pro who he won a DUI jury trial for, or Joe who he won his DUI jury trial two weeks later. Or the Soldier who won his DUI jury trial. He who won three contested DUI license suspension cases in one day. But, don't let his hard-fought wins fool you, because if he can get your DUI thrown out or plead down than he will.

Jason Cerbone's commitment to DUI defense is wholly unparalleled. He is working hard to achieve success in Georgia DUI cases. But most of all, Jason is simply determined beyond all measure.

Jason got me reduced down.
I was facing some trouble in Effingham, Ga. Jason was able to get my sentence reduced and allowed me to keep my license for work.

Great attorney
Jason was able to get my case reduced dramatically. He was unlike many other attorneys in that he gave me his cellphone number and was always easy to get in touch with.

DUI case for Hinesville Ga
I contacted Jason from finding his information online the day after my case. I met with him very shortly after making an appt to see him and gave him all of the details of the case and what happened and what I was looking for in the outcome of all of this. He thoroughly went through the process of everything and what we had to do and what I had to do before the court date to be able to succeed in getting the best possible outcome. After I put in the work to do all of the things I needed to do for the case, Jason handled the rest and was able to get my case lowered to the best possible outcome for what I was accused of and I could not be any happier with the results.

Jason Cerbone is the greatest.
Jason Cerbone is the greatest. He beat my DUI, of course. That got reduced to a non-DUI in the State Court of Savannah, Georgia. But what makes him the greatest to me is that he was available. He called me back fast, and he wanted to talk to me as much as I wanted to talk to him. He was great. And his dogs are amazing. He has a kennel in his office and the most beautiful dogs I’ve ever seen. The next time I need a lawyer, no matter what reason, I’m calling him first, because I trust Jason Cerbone.

Jason Cerbone is the best DUI lawyer in Georgia.
Jason Cerbone is the best DUI lawyer in Georgia. He got my DUI case totally dismissed at a court hearing. The D.A. didn’t want to help me. So Jason set up a situation that the D.A. would have to fight him. Something that any lawyer does not want to do. He made that woman look so bad. The police officer wanted to leave. It was at first scary, then hilarious, and finally relief. Game over. Thank you Jason Cerbone.

DUI reduced to reckless driving
I had prior DUIs and I was very nervous about getting convicted on this one. I found Jason Cerbone on this site and I set up a consultation with him immediately. I explained my situation to him and he agreed to take my case and put me on flexible payment plan. What would've been my fourth DUI, Jason got it reduced to reckless driving and got it handled within less than a three month period. I was very pleased with the outcome and very happy that I didn't have to take it to trial. I would recommend him to anyone who is going through a similar situation.

Jason saved me from a DUI
I had a DUI less safe charge late last year in Tybee Island, and absolutely did not want this stuck on my record. Jason was a consummate professional in dealing with my case, he met with me and gathered the documents necessary, and laid out my options in plain terms. He gave me a thorough analysis of my situation, and has an excellent and encyclopedic knowledge of the procedures and practices employed by police officers during stops, not the least of which is the field sobriety test. He was fully prepared to take my case to trial, and although I chose to take the nolo contendre that he negotiated on my behalf, I would have been none the less confident in his abilities should we have gone to trial. I would definitely recommend his skills and knowledge should you find yourself in a similar situation as myself.

I DUI on my record
I was arrested in Pooler for DUI,DUI Less Safe, Failure to Maintain Lane, and Driving Through a Gore or Median. This quickly turned into the worst night of my life. Jason was recommended to me by a friend and I decided to hire him as my lawyer after our first consultation. He was very knowledgeable and straight forward throughout the entire experience. He was able to get my charges down to Reckless Driving only. I do not have a DUI on my record and I am so thankful for that.

Jason was there every step of the way!
I was arrested for DUI back in January of 2018. I immediately looked for DUI lawyers in my area and came across Jason. I was facing jail time. I just closed my case today in September of 2019. I received the standard first DUI conditions mandated by the state of Georgia. I was worried about going to jail and it affecting my career, but Jason was there every step of the way. Now, I can finally complete the conditions of my conviction and put this part of my life behind me. Thanks, Jason!

DUI reduced
I was pulled over and charged with use of multiple-beam road lighting equipment (high beams), DUI less safe, and DUI-Alcohol per se 0.08 gm or more, in Bloomingdale, GA. Jason was determined to reach the most positive outcome, and his knowledge of Georgia DUI laws and ability to negotiate with court officials helped me receive a reduction to failure to use due care. If you ever find yourself dealing with life-altering charges such as these, then I would definitely recommend hiring Jason Cerbone to fight for you.

Dui reduced to too fast for conditions
In the Bloomingdale Court in Chatham County, Jason handled my DUI case for me along with a speeding and failure to maintain lane ticket as well. He was able to get it reduced to driving too fast for conditions with no points towards my license and no DUI on my record. He handled everything professionally and was very easy to work with.

Excellent DUI attorney.
Jason was the highest ranked DUI attorney I could find in Georgia. After an unfortunate circumstance in Macintosh County, I consulted with him. I was honest and upfront with Jason and he was too about the case. In the end I couldn’t have asked for a better result. I highly recommend Jason Cerbone as your DUI attorney.

DUI reduction
Today on May 8th, 2019 Jason Cerbone got my DUI reduced from Driving Under the Influence to Reckless driving in the City of Port Wentworth, which is a very rare thing to come across. He has represented me to the best of his ability and got me a plea that I was very happy with and that would not affect my future.

I had a the opportunity to have two of my charges (too fast for conditions and failure to maintain lane charges) dropped and to be granted nolo for my DUI charge thanks to Jason Cerbone as my lawyer. He was very helpful and was a great relief to ensure that my career and future was not in jeopardy.

Jason Cerbone
Jason Cerbone by all means know the law when it comes to DUI cases. After a long two years of court Mr. Cerbone found a way to defeat my case by using the Elliot v. State case. My charges was dropped to reckless driving and all my other charges were dropped. I highly recommend him for anyone who find themselves in the same situation and need great advice.
