Former DUI Prosecutor on Your Side

Mr. Lawson didn't always practice DUI defense. He began his legal career as a DUI prosecutor. After he received his law degree from Emory University's school of law, he was selected to work as an Assistant District Attorney where he prosecuted DUI cases for the state of Georgia. The very training he received to become a DUI prosecutor is the same training used today to teach DUI prosecutors and judges. Mr. Lawson took his knowledge and training and used it to become the successful DUI defense attorney he is today.

After leaving the prosecutor's office and opening his own DUI defense practice, he has defended DUI cases all throughout the state of Georgia where he has garnered a solid reputation for being a skilled trial attorney and negotiator. Today, he is licensed to practice in all trial courts in the Atlanta metropolitan area and North Georgia.

In addition to practicing DUI defense, Mr. Lawson is an instructor at the Institute for Continuing Legal Education where he has trained other DUI attorneys on how to win a DUI case and how to get their DUI clients the best case results possible. Furthermore, he has spoken on a variety of topics at legal seminars including how to cross-examine evidence at DUI trials and how to meticulously investigate a DUI case. He has also been certified as a standardized field sobriety testing instructor since 2000, a qualification that allows him to teach police officers on how to conduct field sobriety tests on drivers suspected of driving under the influence.
