This seminar is designed for attorneys, including public defenders, involved in the defense of DWIs.
“Driving While Impaired: Holy Mackerel Is It Complicated!” An interesting, light-hearted and practical seminar on the realities of representing those accused of impaired driving offenses. With a panel of experienced “in-the-trench” DWI commentators, even those with substantial trial practice in the area can learn something new.
Combining a technical review of the technology used as evidence in the 21st century courtroom and old-fashioned tips in presenting cases, defense counsel and prosecutors can benefit from attending. It’s a chance to learn, earn CLE credit/ethics and have a good laugh.
