Georgia DUI Bench Trial
Attorney Greg Willis has a great deal of experience trying DUI cases in the Georgia court system. Because he is familiar with the judges and their tendencies, he may recommend a Georgia DUI bench trial in order to preserve your case. For example, if a client says something embarrassing during the drunk-driving arrest that could bias the jury, Mr. Willis may select a bench trial in order to increase the chances of winning.
A bench trial has other advantages. Because the judge understands the law, he or she may pick up on legal matters that a jury would miss. You may be able to get your DUI reduced to a lesser charge, such as reckless driving, if you select a bench trial. Another benefit of a bench trial is that it is less formal and time-consuming than a jury trial.
One disadvantage of a bench trial is that a jury may be more sympathetic than a judge might be. Your chances of getting an appeal are also increased if you lose with a jury trial than a bench trial.
Mr. Willis has a high success rate of winning cases and reducing a DUI to a lesser charge. One of the top defense attorneys in the state, he will help you decide whether a Georgia DUI bench trial or jury trial is the best option for your situation.
