He has a 93.6% success rate of defending DUI charges over the past 10 years (success equals closing the cases without a DUI conviction).  


Greg Willis has extensive appellate experience with many appellate cases that have transformed DUI laws in Georgia. He argued the seminal case Elliott v. State305 Ga. 179 (2019) before the Georgia Supreme Court which resulted in the Supreme Court holding that Georgia's DUI statutes were unconstitutional.  The state’s legislature revised Georgia’s implied consent warning after Elliott was decided.  He also argued Hill v. State, 360 Ga. App. 683 (2021) before the Georgia Court of Appeals where the Court agreed with Mr. Willis and suppressed 28 grams of cocaine for a 10-20 second unlawful delay during an ordinary traffic stop. He is proud of his firm’s extensive pro bono work for GACDL’s Amicus Committee (he is a current member and former Chair). Greg Willis has co-authored many briefs for GACDL to the Georgia Supreme Court, the Georgia Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court. His office also currently has several cases pending in both the Georgia Supreme Court and the Georgia Court of Appeals that will affect most DUI cases pending at this time.
