National College for DUI Defense Winter Seminar
My partner Jeff Gold and I attended a two day seminar last week in San Diego held by The National College for DUI Defense (NCDD). Jeff and I have been members of the NCDD for many years. The NCDD is a forum for DUI defense attorneys across the country to share knowledge and experience in the field of DUI defense. NCDD members also share information on line on a daily basis through a list serve which provides valuable insight into successful techniques used to achieve dismissals and acquittals in DUI cases across the USA. Lecture topics at this year's seminar in San Diego included effective cross examination of the arresting officer, the importance of a fifteen minute observation period in breath test cases and effective jury selection techniques.
Membership with the NCDD and other DUI defense groups such as The California DUI Lawyers Association, provides DUI lawyers in California with valuable support in a very stressful and difficult area of law, and ensures that lawyers are kept up to date on important changes in the law relating to DUI cases.
The NCDD website also provides the public with a list of DUI lawyers in each State who are members and is an effective tool for the public to choose an experienced and respected DUI attorney.
