An Arrest is NOT a Conviction
Welcome to DUI.tv, your resource for a wealth of topics related to successful DUI defense. This website features informative audio and video documentaries by William C. Head, one of the most widely respected DUI defense attorneys in the nation. Mr. Head is author of The DUI Book, a groundbreaking publication widely referenced by top DUI attorneys and other readers across the country.
Mr. Head uses his 38 years of court experience to obtain the best possible outcome for his clients. This premium consulting service includes Mr. Head sitting as a second chair in any DUI case – providing the benefits of his years of experience and unique knowledge. In addition, Mr. Head has assembled the finest defense team possible, including certified toxicology experts specializing in case testimony for impaired driving charges.
Mr. Head launched his legal career after receiving his Juris Doctorate from The University of Georgia School of Law in 1976. He is a member of both the Georgia and South Carolina Bar Associations. Mr. Head has made a hallmark of active participation within the legal community. He has the unique distinction of being chosen National DUI Lawyer of the Year by NCDD.com conducted at the Harvard University School of Law.
Mr. Head pioneered a series of workshops with Georgia's ICLE (a non-profit group based out of Athens). The programs were designed for DUI defense attorneys, and called the “Defense of Drinking Drivers Institute” before such workshops were in vogue. Since his beginnings as a young trial attorney, Mr. Head has continued his passion for DUI defense study and training. He believes that every client is entitled to the best defense possible – and he uses every personal resource in his power toward that means.
Harvard University School of Law hosted a three-day training session organized by Mr. Head in the mid 1990’s. Shortly thereafter, he developed an aggressive educational effort called a “DUI Bootcamp” for the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. This workshop was designed to assist public defenders and appointed counsel in honing trial skills to defend clients accused of impaired driving. It is now open to all DUI attorneys who dedicate their practices to DUI defense. Mr. Head continued his involvement from the time of initial seminars, again serving as chair of the boot camp in 2007.
The most recent GACDL Bootcamp for DUI attorneys was held in March of 2014.
A portion of Mr. Head’s vast success comes from his unique and in-depth study of law enforcement methods. Mr. Head completed a course on the “Intoxilyzer 5000” – a device used by law enforcement personnel to test suspects – and he has sponsored training for other attorneys to better understand the breath testing device. Why would a respected attorney take valuable time to personally study law enforcement training, specifically the mechanics and operation of a breathalyzer?
Is it because he hopes to gain a career where he sits in a patrol car, waiting to pull an unsuspecting driver over? No – it’s because in intensive training, Intoxilyzer experts expose the weaknesses of the devices and the various operator techniques that may lead to false readings. If a law enforcement official administers a test in such a manner to create a false reading, wouldn’t it be nice to have an attorney who understands exactly what occurred?
In 1999, Mr. Head was instrumental in starting www.DrunkDrivingDefense.com, an internet directory of the top DUI/DWI defense lawyers across the nation.
Now, all cases from that site are being handled by TEAMDUI.com. Call 844-TEAMDUI [844-832-6384] to find a top-rated DUI lawyer.

He regularly appears on network television stations and a variety of media outlets, including the New York Times, Fox News, the Wall Street Journal and other media sources.
