Kimberly Berry has successfully represented juveniles and adults charged with DUI and other related drug and alcohol crimes in hundreds of misdemeanor and felony cases throughout the state of Georgia. She has exclusively focused her legal career on criminal defense, working as a public defender prior to her transition into private practice.
Ms. Berry is an Atlanta native who attended Gwinnett County public schools before attending the University of Georgia for her undergraduate degree. She went on to graduate as a Dean's Scholar from Vanderbilt University School of Law, where she was selected for the Georgia Public Defender Standards Council Honors Program for outstanding law school graduates.
Ms. Berry has been certified since 2011 in DUI Detection & Standardized Field Sobriety Testing from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (the same training Georgia State Patrol officers must undergo prior to conducting DUI investigations). Additionally, she has extensive experience in the juvenile court system. The consequences of a DUI conviction for teenagers and young adults can be severe, affecting scholarships, education, and future employment prospects. The juvenile court system has a unique set of operating procedures and punishments, and offenses are viewed much differently in this system. Ms. Berry uses her experience to guide guide teenagers and their families through this system.
A DUI arrest itself is incredibly intimidating, and the subsequent court processes can disrupt work, school, and family obligations. If you or your child is facing DUI charges, call Ms. Berry today to discuss the details of your case and determine the best way to move forward.
