What to know if you've been charged with an East Point DUI
Arrested for DUI in East Point, GA? Need a East Point DUI attorney familiar with the East Point Municipal Court? With over 40 years of experience of defending DUI arrests, George C. Creal Jr., P.C. are the Real Deal East Point DUI Attorneys. We’re veterans of the Municipal Court of East Point. We know the system, the Court, the Judges, the Prosecutors, and the Police, and they know we represent our clients with determination and to the fullest extent of the law. The Prosecutor in East Point routinely refuses to allow Defendant’s too see the evidence without waiving the right to a jury trial. Do not waive your right to a jury trial for any criminal offense in East Point. If you have to bind your case over to Fulton County that is better than waiving your rights just to evidence that you are legally entitled to see. Don’t be bullied or coerced by the prosecution. We have their DUI training manuals that give us the information we need to win your case. The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHSTA) training manuals in DUI Detection and Field Sobriety Evaluations are used by police departments all over Georgia. Through the lens of these training manuals we evaluate and build your DUI defense. We know the procedures outlined in these manuals better than the police and even the prosecutors, and we use our knowledge to establish how the DUI evaluations are unreliable, misunderstood and misused by police. We expose the flaws in DUI investigations to prove your innocence. For more information on a strong Georgia DUI defense, check out our Helpful GA DUI Guide.

Advice as to who you decide to hire as your East Point 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.
