J. Michael Mullis
Georgia Criminal Defense Lawyer

Attorney Mike Mullis lived much of his life in Valdosta, Georgia where he owned and operated a bookstore prior to law school. He graduated with honors with a BA degree in history from Valdosta State University in 1987, scored in the 95th percentile on the Law School Admission Test, and received a scholarship to the University of Georgia School of Law in Athens. During his last year in law school, Mr. Mullis participated in the Defender's Clinic at the School of Law's Legal Aid and Defender Society.

After graduating from Law School, Mr. Mullis worked as a criminal defense lawyer at the University of Georgia Legal Aid Office where he successfully defended many high profile cases including murder, rape, aggravated assault, and felony drug cases.

In 1992, Mr. Mullis moved home to Valdosta where he continued criminal defense. At the beginning of 1994, Mr. Mullis received a call from William C. "Bubba" Head of Atlanta.  Mr. Head literally wrote the book on DUI defense in Georgia. He has defended or consulted on thousands of DUI cases and is one of the nation's foremost authorities on the subject. Mr. Head asked Mr. Mullis to move to Atlanta to help him with his expanding DUI practice.

After attending several advanced training courses sponsored by Mr. Head, Mr. Mullis began his specialization in DUI cases. In 1995, the law firm of Head, Mullis, Thomas & Webb was formed with the express purpose of defending Driving Under the Influence cases. This was the largest firm of its type in Atlanta.

After five years, Mr. Mullis opened his own practice.  He now defends those charged with murder and other serious violent felonies including armed robbery as well as drug, theft and assault cases. He also continues to defend those charged with Driving Under the Influence, homicide by vehicle, and other alcohol related offenses. His reputation in that area of specialization has earned him the name of the DUI Guy.

Mr. Mullis has defended or consulted on hundreds of cases and has received advanced training on scientific evidence and detection of those driving under the influence (he has given expert trial testimony on standardized field sobriety testing on several occasions). He is a founding member of the National College for DUI Defense conducted at Harvard University Law School, and has spoken at seminars for private attorneys as well as judges. Mr. Mullis and his associates defend criminal cases all over the State of Georgia.
