A DUI conviction can wreak havoc on your life. Not just for a few months, but for years down the road. Heavy fines. Increased insurance rates. Loss of your driver's license. A permanent record. Maybe even jail time. So while many criminal defense attorneys are willing to help you take a guilty plea, doesn't it make more sense to work with a lawyer who will fight your charges?

You Don't Have To Plead Guilty To DUI Charges

Not all criminal attorneys spend a lot of time at trial. Not so at Daniels & Rothman. Our lawyers know what is at stake when you face DUI charges. That's why we focus on contested DUI cases and fighting charges at trial.

While we believe in hard work early in the case, we know not to develop your bargaining position in plea negotiations. We get ready for trial and make sure that the prosecution understands that. Our team will leave no stone unturned when looking for ways to get evidence thrown out. Regardless of your unique circumstances, we will find a defense. This includes innovative legal strategies for issues surrounding:

  • Basic DUI defense for people without prior convictions
  • Using weaknesses in field sobriety, blood and Breathalyzer test procedures to beat DUI charges
  • Refusal cases
  • Felony DUI defense, especially in cases involving serious or fatal accidents
  • Repeat DUI cases, including those based on out-of-state DWI convictions
  • Underage DUI cases
  • Driver's license suspension hearings before the Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS)
  • Probation violation and DUI Drug Court

Our criminal practice is led by attorney Jeffrey Rothman, a leader in DUI defense. He is one of the few attorneys in our area who consistently defends DUI charges at trial. He is a member of the prestigious National College for DUI Defense and of the DUI Defense Lawyers Association (DUIDLA), and is frequently invited to speak to other attorneys concerning DUI Defense. Mr. Rothman represents DUI clients in Banks County, Barrow County, Clarke County, Elbert County, Franklin County, Greene County, Jackson County, Madison County, Oglethorpe County, Greene County, the University of Georgia, and surrounding communities.
