If you are facing a DUI, drug, or other traffic charge it is very important that you hire an attorney. While you can hire any attorney wouldn't you rather hire one who knows both sides of prosecution and defense? Wouldn't you rather hire an attorney who not only knows the individual police officers, but has also trained them? Wouldn't you rather hire an attorney who has spent all night on the road working with these officers? Wouldn't you rather hire an attorney who has worked with and trained the prosecutor in your case? If you do, then call Jim "DUI Jim" Yeargan.
