Georgia Court of Appeals Classic Re-Run - Constitutional Restrictions for Roadblocks Massaged (Again)

The front of the United States Supreme CourtOn May 30, 2010 Justin Clark was stopped at a roadblock in Polk County. The roadblock had been verbally authorized by a sergeant in the Georgia State Patrol. He testified that he implemented the roadblock for the purpose of checking driver's licenses, proof of insurance, and motorist sobriety. Two GSP troopers and two Polk County officers participated in the roadblock. The participating Officers testified that the roadblock was for general crime deterrence. There were two marked PCPD cars and two GSP cars on either side of the three-lane road to in order to alert drivers. No signs identified the roadblock, the police vehicles did not have their emergency lights activated because it was day time, there were no traffic cones and the Officers were not wearing reflective vests.more

With One Call We Can Begin Your DeKalb County DUI Case:

The Georgia State SealAdvice as to who you decide to hire as your DeKalb County DUI Lawyer: 1) Don’t hire a DUI lawyer based solely on price. Sometimes the cheapest lawyer--especially if they plea you to a DUI you don't deserve at the first opportunity--can be the most expensive. Cost per hour is the best way to compare lawyers. If a lawyer charges $1000, but only spends an hour on your case, that's $1000 dollars an hour! We, unlike bargain basement firms, spend an average of 10 hours on every DUI case. 2)  Ask any attorney that you speak with whether he/she has tried any DUI jury trials and how many not guilty verdicts he/she has received in the past 2 years; 3)  Ask any attorney that you speak with whether he/she has studied police field sobriety training manuals and breath test machine, owner's and area supervisor's manuals. If not, they cannot adequately cross examine DUI police officers or breath test operators. A DUI lawyer who can't answer these questions is not ready for a real DUI jury trial and is not worth your time and money.

Client Reviews

Deborah J

George was wonderful!

I was charged with a DUI plus four other violations. He was able to get my DUI reduced to Reckless Driving and have three of the other violations dismissed. I was very distraught with what had happened. George was very calming and helped me get through this in a very efficient way. I would most highly recommend him!

Rating: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

DeKalb County Client Reviews: 

1) William P.
Review Rating: 5 stars!
Review Title: Great overall work by George Creal! 
Client Review: I was charged for 2 DUI's one in Fulton County and one in DeKalb County both 
of which were reduced to reckless driving.

2) Patricia D.,
  Review Rating: 5 Stars!
  Review Title: Useful Information.
  Client Review: Mr. Creal provided information that was very useful on the first contact call that I made to him. He advised me that I could go to the Conyers DDS and obtain a limited driving permit which relieved the stress from loved ones on having drive me back and forth to work, school and medical appointments.  

3) Joseph M.
    Review Rating: 5 Stars!
    Review Title: Satisfied!
    Client Review: I was charged with a DUI and 4 other charges initially. Case was transferred 
from Atlanta to DeKalb. I am satisfied with the outcome and with Mr. Creal and his staff.
4) Anonymous
    Review Rating: 5 Stars!
    Review Title: Best Possible Outcome!
    Client Review: I was pulled over for speeding on the highway adn was administered a field 
sobriety test by Dunwoody Police Officer. Arrest, then performed Intoxilyzer test at DeKalb County Jail. Blew a 0.100 reading and spent over 2 days there. Upon release, I hired Mr. Creal's services. 

Faced with major consequences for the two traffic citations, Mr. Creal provided me with specific steps to prepare for my hearings. I followed his instructions. The initial Court date occurred in Dunwoody Municipal Court. As I was nervous about the upcoming decision, Mr. Creal consistently made sure I was updated. At the DUI hearing, Mr. Creal was able to secure a negotiation with the arresting Officer and the prosecutor to reduce my charge to reckless driving (as this was my first DUI offense, I am a student,and I also work) and my ALS license hearing dropped. I had to then complete a DUI Risk Reduction course, clinical evaluation, and 40 hrs approved community service. 

However, I do not have a DUI on my record. Mr. Creal produced the best possible outcome and I am glad I chose him to represent me in these legal matters. Obviously, he research, skills, and professionalism speak for themselves and the investment was worth every penny. The best part of the experience was Mr. Creal's honesty and his ability to make me feel comfortable throughout my process.

  Review Rating: 5 Stars!
  Review Title: Great Lawyer!
  Client Review: George Creal is a great lawyer. My case was in DeKalb County and it was my 
3rd DUI in less a year. The deal he got me was no short of amazing! I was fortunate enough to have him as my attorney.
