DUI Defense Lawyer in Peachtree Corners, GA
If you have recently been arrested for an Atlanta DUI, you are likely feeling a lot of anxiety about not only your future, but who you will hire to guide you to the best possible outcome. Searching for “DUI lawyers near me” has most likely given you a sense of deja-vu, that seemingly every Atlanta law firm has “DUI lawyer” on their sign, or “drunk driving” on their website. Do not be fooled–most of those firms are general criminal attorneys. Properly defending a DUI case is more difficult and technical than most major felonies. It involves expertise in statistics, physics, chemistry, and biology, not to mention the law and trial strategy. Atlanta DUI Lawyer Adam Brown knows this all too well. Not only was he a public defender who handled hundreds of major felonies, he has also been a licensed Registered Nurse since 2006. He has devoted his practice to defending people charged with driving under the influence.
Since leaving the Public Defenders office in 2016, Adam has devoted the majority of his practice to defending DUIs, and he does it well. Adam is the only DUI-focused practitioner in metro-Atlanta that is also a licensed medical professional. That expertise led to him working for a highly respected specialized DUI law firm. He has handled hundreds of DUI cases in private practice, and his 5-star client reviews speak for themselves. He is an active member of the bar, assisting other Georgia DUI attorneys on their complex scientific issues as well. He is a member of the National College for DUI Defense, is certified in Standardized Field Sobriety Testing, and completed coursework in the Drug Recognition Expert model–the highest level of DUI certification available to DUI officers. He has also completed the National College’s prestigious Harvard Summer Session in 2015 and training in Metrology (the science of measurement). This deep understanding of science is what is needed to fully defend DUI Drugs cases, where the Georgia Bureau of Investigation still uses an older and much less reliable single-column gas chromatography process for testing blood samples.
It is understandably easy to get discouraged if your DUI case involves a breath or blood test that is well over the legal limit. The State would have you think their machine is infallible, and there’s no way to “beat” the machine. Adam’s extensive scientific background and nursing bedside manner are invaluable in helping explain these concepts to juries. For example, you need only sit down in front of a used computer that’s a couple years old to understand that machines are glitchy and have problems if not properly maintained. Georgia now exclusively uses the Intoxilyzer 9000, which started coming into service in 2014. Prior to that, the last major update was the Intoxilyzer 5000 and 5000EN, from the 1980s and early 90s–yes, many of the machines themselves were old enough to drink! These machines are required to go through a quarterly checkup, and numerous records are kept. Adam knows how to request the records and pull them apart to find discrepancies and ongoing problems–all to show that the test “number” is not as reliable as the police would have you believe. Adam’s scientific expertise has yielded positive results in DUI Per se, and DUI drugs cases time and time again.
