Was the Breathalyzer Calibrated Properly?
Breathalyzers are used to test the concentration of alcohol in your blood. The machines themselves are very sensitive and must be stored, maintained, and calibrated properly. Breathalyzer results cannot be trusted if the instrument isn’t in perfect working order. If we find that the breathalyzer wasn’t properly calibrated, we can use this information to challenge your DUI charges.
Did Officers Administer Breath Tests Correctly?
There’s a specific process that must be followed when administering a breath test. The results of a breath test aren’t reliable if officers deviate from the process in any way. Our DUI lawyers will want to know:
- Were the officers properly trained to administer the test?
- Did they make sure that you didn’t consume anything or smoke before administering the test?
- Did they use a sample of your breath from deep within your lungs, rather than the air that’s circulating around your mouth?
- Did they get a large enough sample of your breath to run the test?
If the answer to any of these questions is “no,” then the test wasn’t administered properly. Because we are former DUI prosecutors, we know the shortcuts taken by law enforcement officers. A DUI lawyer at Yeargan & Kert, LLC will use this knowledge to your advantage.
Are the Breathalyzer Results Accurate?
Did you know that the things you eat and drink can alter the results of a breathalyzer? Even the medications you take could affect the reading. It’s important to point out every potential factor that could have impacted your breathalyzer results.

Can I Fight My DUI Charges?
Don’t underestimate the power of a strong DUI defense.The state has to prove that you are guilty of driving drunk beyond a reasonable doubt. This makes getting a conviction pretty tough. With the right attorney by your side, you can beat the DUI charges and win your case.
Was Your DUI Stop Legal?
Police officers in Atlanta can’t just decide to stop your vehicle without a reason. You must have broken the law in some way or demonstrated unsafe driving behaviors. If you were pulled over on suspicion of DUI, but the officer can’t point to a specific reason for making the stop, your rights have been violated. You can’t be convicted of DUI if the charges are based on an illegal traffic stop. Make sure you call our attorneys if you suspect that an illegal stop led to your DUI.
Was the Field Sobriety Test Done Properly?
Field sobriety tests are used to help police officers assess your sense of balance, alertness, and other senses. Just because an officer says that you fail a field sobriety test doesn’t mean that you’ll lose your DUI case. Field sobriety tests are very subjective and, many times, aren’t conducted properly. You can rest assured that our DUI lawyers have experience dealing with Atlanta law enforcement officials. Our Atlanta DUI attorneys know how to spot the flaws in their case.
Some questions we ask regarding your sobriety test:
- What type of shoes were you wearing?
- Was the test administered on level ground?
- Was it raining out?
- Could you hear the officer’s instructions over the sound of nearby traffic?
It’s critical to identify any factors that could have affected your performance.
The goal is to (a) gather evidence that contradicts the claim that you were drunk behind the wheel and (b) discredit or disprove evidence gathered by the state. Remember, the state has the burden of proving that you committed a crime by driving drunk. As your DUI attorneys, our job is to make the prosecutor’s job as difficult as possible. We’ll build a strong defense and use every argument to support your case.
You need a DUI lawyer who understands the unique complexities of Georgia DUI law. An attorney who understands how police are supposed to conduct DUI investigations. Someone who knows how to spot a mistake and challenge it. Jim Yeargan trained at the Georgia Police Academy, receiving certifications in Field Sobriety Testing, Intoxilyzer 5000 operations, and Laser and Radar Operator’s Training. Now he teaches the very police officers who patrol the roads of Atlanta every day. No one is better prepared or qualified to defend you against a DUI.
