Biography

Greg received the first ever 'BadAss Award' from DUIDLA for his unmatched success in DUI Defense. He was also given the DUI Defense Lawyer of the Year for 2018-2019 by the Georgia DUI Defense of Drinking Drivers group (DODD). Greg made the front page of the Atlanta Journal Constitution and the Fulton County Daily Report in 2019 for a successful, landmark decision at the Georgia Supreme Court in the case of Elliott v. State. He has been rated as a Super Lawyer year after year in DUI defense by his peers because of his unbelievable success rate defending his clients (93% without a DUI conviction over the last 9 years). The Super Lawyer selection is based on the opinion of his peers, including both judges and lawyers. Greg is so committed to getting the just outcome for his clients that he once spent four consecutive days in jail to protect a client from rulings of an unfair judge. Greg later won the jury trial in that case after the judge lost his job. National DUI defense organizations regularly ask Greg to speak at conferences to teach lawyers his proven methods in defending his clients. Greg regularly challenges the accuracy of both breath and blood tests and has been recognized for consistently exposing weaknesses in the forensic science used in breath and blood testing. He remains front footed in DUI training and continuing education. In order to remain on the leading edge of DUI defense, Greg has mastered the Drug Recognition Expert Overview Course and is even certified to operate the Intoxilyzer 5000, a breathalyzer commonly used by law enforcement. In addition, he has taken numerous courses in order to understand the inner workings of the Intoxilyzer. This knowledge enables him to challenge this test’s inconsistent results. Greg has earned many favorable rulings from the Supreme Court of Georgia and the most recent one (Elliott v. State) resulted in almost all breath tests and refusals to submit to tests to be excluded from court against his clients. Greg currently has two cases pending at the Georgia appellate courts that could result in the suppression of evidence of blood tests, breath tests, and refusals in Georgia. Greg is also challenging any tests that are achieved with a warrant as unconstitutional. Greg has been recognized as one of the top DUI lawyers in Georgia and the United States and has petitioned the United States Supreme Court in numerous DUI cases. He was recently invited to write a brief on a case that was pending before the Court. Greg graduated from the University of Georgia Law School in 1996. Since then, he has dedicated his legal career to defending Georgia drivers accused of DUI. Greg is a member of the State Bar of Georgia, DUIDLA, the National College of DUI Defense, and Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. He is also on the Board of Directors of the DUIDLA. His proven results are the reason judges, lawyers, police officers, court personnel, and prior clients regularly refer their friends and family to Greg. A free face-to-face meeting with Greg is priceless to help you decide the best approach to win your case.
