What Will The Attendee Learn?

Defending any case that begins with a traffic stop demands that the lawyer has a working knowledge of the traffic laws, police procedure and basic forensic principles. The state has gone to great lengths to make the “drinking – driver” and other traffic related cases a “slam-dunk” for the prosecution. At this workshop you will learn to attack the state’s case from the moment the blue lights came on through the closing statement….using questions that make you look like the “expert” and making the police officer the best witness for the defense.

This seminar is designed to assist defense lawyers at all skill levels….from the lawyer handling a traffic case for the first time to the experienced practitioner staying on the “cutting edge” of the law and practice techniques….from a practical perspective!
