In the state of Georgia, each person who receives a driver's license also agrees with the state's Implied Consent law. Under the law of implied consent, a driver agrees to submit to a chemical test when stopped on suspicion of drinking and driving. Since driving is considered a privilege, and not a right, the state is allowed to take away a person's driving privileges for the refusal to take a breath test when asked by police.
While the police cannot forcibly compel any driver to submit to a breath test, a refusal will result in the automatic suspension of his or her driver's license. At the law firm of Daniels & Taylor, P.C., we may be able to help you avoid a drunk driving conviction. Our attorneys have decades of experience representing people in Georgia who have been arrested for breath test refusals and drunken driving.
If the officer took your license and gave you a DDS form 1205 (30-day driving permit), you must take action within 10 business days to keep your driving privileges.
Your Legal Advocate and Spokesperson
The first mistake to avoid if you are picked up for driving under the influence is to talk to the police. Be polite, give them your name and drivers license, but do not discuss your case with them unless you have a lawyer present. Let us speak on your behalf and handle all the details in building a strong DUI defense.

Experienced Gwinnett County DUI Defense Lawyers
Our firm does not take breath test results at face value. Defects in breath test machines, and officers who are not properly trained on how to use the machines, can cause inaccurate results.
We will carefully investigate your case by reviewing the maintenance and calibration records for the breath test machine, establishing whether the breath test results correlate with your drinking pattern, and identifying any medical issues and other factors that may have thrown off the test results. Whether the prosecutors are attempting to use a standard breath test, a field breath test or both against you, we will work diligently to find ways to get the results thrown out.
