Fairburn DUI Information

What to know if you've been charged with a Fairburn DUI

Creal, Jr., P.C. are the Real Deal Fairburn DUI Attorneys. We’re familiar with the Fairburn Justice System and we know what it takes to win DUI Jury trials! We know the Courts, the Judges, the Prosecutors, and the Police, and they know we are prepared to fight for every inch of our clients’ rights. We use the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) training manuals in DUI Detection and Field Sobriety Evaluation–the same DUI training manuals used by police–to beat DUI charges.

We use these DUI training manuals to expose the junk science and inconsistencies inherent in DUI evaluations in order to prove your innocence.

Dedicated Fairburn DUI Lawyers Determined to find Reasonable Doubt – Aggressive DUI Representation You Deserve:

We have defended thousands of DUI cases, had hundreds of DUI arrests reduced to non-DUI traffic offenses like reckless driving, and tried over one hundred DUI Jury Trials. Unlike many DUI firms, we have valuable Not Guilty Jury Trial Experience. Ask other lawyers when was the last time they heard a jury say the words “Not Guilty” in a DUI Case. You will be surprised at how many so-called “expert DUI lawyers” cannot give you a straight answer.



If it’s the First Time or Next Time, it’s Always Good to be Prepared. Even if you’re not technically DUI, if there is an odor of alcohol on your breath you are likely to be arrested and taken to jail. If the police cannot arrest you for DUI per se (blowing over 0.08), they’ll most likely arrest you for DUI less safe: blowing under the legal limit, but being “less safe” to drive because of the presence of alcohol or drugs.

How to Hire a Lawyer for a Fairburn DUI

A Fairburn DUI is Serious and Can Result in Serious Jail Time – Do NOT OPT to Represent Yourself:

Even for a 1st DUI, you can be fined $1000.00 with up to 40% tacked on as court costs, spend up to 12 months in jail, do 40 hours of community service, be subject to drug and alcohol testing for one yea,r and serve 12 months of reporting probation. Your license can be suspended anywhere from 120 days to 5 years. Do not try to handle your DUI without an experienced Fairburn DUI attorney.

Our advice as who to decide who to hire as your Fairburn DUI lawyer: 1) Don’t hire an 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.
