As a former full-time prosecutor, M. Qader A. Baig has handled and overseen a countless number of DUI cases over the years. He has argued DUI and traffic cases successfully before the Supreme Court of Georgia and the Court of Appeals, and he has remained current on the ever-changing nuances in DUI law, both as an attorney and as an Instructor responsible for the education of law enforcement, attorneys, students and the general public.

In Georgia, you will find many DUI lawyers who will charge you more, but you are unlikely to find a DUI defense attorney who knows more about the law, procedure and the court system than Mr. Baig.

Defending against a DUI claim

In Georgia, generally, there are two ways you can be convicted of DUI. The state must prove the driver had an 0.08 grams or more blood alcohol concentration within 3 hours, during or after, driving or otherwise being in control of a motor vehicle - this is known as a "per se" violation. The state may also prove DUI by showing the driver was "less safe" to drive a motor vehicle because of the effects of alcohol and/or other intoxicants - this is known as a "less safe" violation.

The penalties for a first offense DUI can include:

  • 10 days to 12 months in jail
  • Up to $1,000 fine
  • 12 months probation
  • 12 month long suspension of your driver's license
  • 40 hours of community service
  • DUI defensive driving school
  • Alcohol evaluation and treatment, if necessary

Georgia courts are strict when it comes to DUI sentencing, even for a first offense. If you are convicted, the judge must comply with statutory sentencing guidelines which often make life difficult.

Underage and multiple DUIs present different challenges. We will test, question and attack every link in the prosecution's chain of facts and argument. If your rights were violated at any time, we will expose the injustice and seek proper legal remedy, which may include dismissal, reduction to lesser charges or favorable consideration in a negotiated disposition.

At M. Qader A. Baig & Associates, LLC, if your case doesn't go to trial, we won't charge you the full rate. We only charge for the services we provide. You can learn more about our tiered-fee system at a meeting with DUI defense attorney M. Qader A. Baig at our offices in Covington or Conyers, Georgia.

If you are in Gwinnett County, Morgan County, Newton County, Walton County or the surrounding areas and need to schedule an appointment, call  (770) 929-1665 or contact us online.

Attorney M. Qader A. Baig and the group he surrounds himself with is unmatched in Georgia. His years of experience are easily witnessed with how he handles himself in and out of the office. He is kind and genuine and a lion in the courtroom. If you need the best, no need to look further. His staff is just as amazing as he is.

Dana Newman

I spoke with Mr. Qader, he was extremely helpful. He listened to my concerns and didn’t rush me with speaking. I had experiences with other attorneys that wouldn’t listen to a complete sentence and interrupt because they were pressed for time. He was patient and shown concerned. Mr. Qader didn’t make me feel like I was just another client. Thank you.
