Atlanta DUI Lawyer

Breath Tests

If you are facing a DUI charge in Atlanta, you have probably undergone a Georgia breath test after being stopped by law enforcement. The quickest way to determine your blood alcohol concentration level is through the use of a breathalyzer. In Georgia, the most common one used is the Intoxilyzer 5000. By completing the test, you are giving the state a potential piece of evidence that will be used by the prosecution to convict you. If you refuse to take the breath test, you face the loss of your driver's license in a consequent suspension.

If you have been arrested and charged with a DUI based on a breathalyzer test, you should immediately contact the Savoy Law Firm to arrange for a legal consultation with our Atlanta criminal defense attorney. Our attorney is a member of the National College for DUI Defense. With more than a decade of legal experience in handling DUIs, he knows how to effectively combat breath test results and "alleged refusals" of breath tests.

Breath Test Inaccuracy

Any breath test must be conducted properly by law enforcement. If it is not done so, the results may be false. Even with proper administration, breathalyzer test results are often inaccurate. The Intoxilyzer 5000 is one of the least reliable of such devices. Without proper calibration, the device can give an artificially high blood alcohol percentage. Other factors that can artificially influence breath tests results include mouthwashes, breath sprays, cough syrup, dental conditions, acid reflux, heartburn, diabetes, and other illnesses.

You should not let a breathalyzer test result in an automatic conviction. The test may have been improperly administered and the results may be false. Let an Atlanta DUI attorney with years of experience in understanding and challenging breath tests represent you. Many drivers are incorrectly charged with DUI - don't be one of them.

Contact the Atlanta DUI attorney at the firm if you are facing a DUI based on a breath test today.
