DUI Judge Georgia
At Head, Thomas, Webb and Willis, our attorneys spend a lot of time in the courtroom defending their clients. Because of this, they have gotten to know the judges who preside over DUI cases. Our lawyers know their propensities, tendencies, and the way they view drinking and driving charges. We also exchange information with other DUI attorneys across the state. While knowing the judges doesn’t guarantee an acquittal, it can be useful when preparing your case for trial. We can also share our experience with you so you know what to expect.
All judges handle DUI cases in a different way. While some take a tough stance on defendants who drink and drive, others treat it like any other criminal case that comes across their desk. Understanding how they view your case can be used to your advantage.
If you are convicted of drunk driving, the judge will reference Georgia’s sentencing guidelines when determining your punishment. While they cannot go below the state’s mandatory minimum, he or she can increase the penalties depending on the circumstances of your case.
If you decide to have a bench trial, rather than a jury trial, the judge will both preside over and determine the verdict for your case. The term “bench trial” is a reference to the bench where they sit on during the court proceedings.
Because our attorneys are dedicated to these types of cases in Georgia, we can offer valuable insight into your case. We are available 24/7 to offer advice and can travel to any location in the state to represent you. Offering affordable rates, we accept major credit cards and can set up a payment plan if necessary.
