Georgia DUI and Criminal Defense Attorney
Recommended by clients, prosecutors, courtroom bailiffs, and police officers.
DUI Case Defense
Many people are wrongfully charged with DUI just because they have the odor of alcohol on their breath and they refuse to blow into a portable breath testing device at the roadside, or refuse to participate in "Field Sobriety Exercises". Remember that the "Field Sobriety Exercises" are not proof that you have consumed an excess amount of alcohol and the odor of alcoholic beverages on your breath is not a scientific way to determine whether you are over the limit. Guy Sharpe has been trained on the Field Sobriety Tests sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and can look at the arrest video and tell whether or not the officer has performed the test properly. Our goal is to get the DUI charge dismissed or reduced to reckless driving.
Illegal Drug Cases
The War on Drugs has resulted in many people being charged with possession of illegal drugs as a result of illegal searches. If you are stopped walking down the street and you are approached by a cop asking you questions about what you are doing, you do not have to answer any of his questions. If they ask you if you have anything on you that he should know about,or if you have any drugs on you, you do not have to answer his questions. You can ask him if you are under arrest and if he says, "No", you can just walk away. Too often, cops will try to intimidate people to get them to consent to a search of their person or car, when the cop has no reason to believe that you are breaking the law. If this is the first time you have received a drug charge, you may qualify for the Diversion Program, which can result in the charges against you being dismissed.
Assault and Battery/Domestic Violence Cases
Heated arguments can escalate into assault and battery cases, especially when alcohol is involved. If you have been charged with battery involving a spouse or friend, it is important that you have an attorney represent you to make sure you get the benefits of special diversion programs designed to keep your criminal record clear. Conviction of crimes of violence can result in you being prohibited from owning a firearm or ammunition the rest of your life. If you are employed in a position that requires you to carry a firearm, that could result in your losing your job. You may qualify for the Diversion Program, which will help keep your criminal record clean.
Theft and Forgery Cases
Theft cases are crimes of moral turpitude and can make it hard for you to get, or keep a job. It's important that you have an attorney represent you who knows the legal system and can help you get the benefit of special treatment to keep your record clean.
