Ashley Hurlbert recently received advanced level training, from the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys, on how to easily and effectively invalidate the results of the Walk and Turn and the One Leg Stand Tests. Officers will testify that they conducted the Walk and Turn and the One Leg Stand Tests properly. However, in almost every case, officers conduct the tests improperly by doing one or more of the following: giving wrong instructions, giving improper demonstrations, failing the test themselves during their own demonstration of the test, and improperly assessing a person’s performance on the tests. Ashley received training on exactly what to look for during the Walk and Turn and the One Leg Stand Tests and how to invalidate the tests by using the officer’s own National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Manuals against them in the courtroom.
The American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys has compiled information from Judges, Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutors (the Top DUI Prosecutors in each State), DUI Prosecutors, current Law Enforcement Officers, former Law Enforcement Officers, and DUI Defense Attorneys to determine exactly what skills, knowledge, training, tools, resources, and strategies win the most DUI cases at trial and are also used to get DUI cases successfully resolved for the defense prior to trial.
When people need a DUI Attorney, the biggest challenge is knowing whether or not an attorney truly has the skills, knowledge, training, tools, resources, and strategies that are needed to successfully resolve and win DUI cases. Countless attorneys handle DUI cases. But, only a very small percentage have the skills, knowledge, training, tools, resources, and strategies that are needed to successfully resolve and win DUI cases.
Members of the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys have received advanced level training on the strategies that win the most DUI cases at trial and are also used to get DUI cases successfully resolved for the defense prior to trial. Members of the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys also have access to the resources and tools that are used to win and successfully resolve DUI cases and these are resources and tools that only a very small percentage of DUI attorneys have access to and use.

Herauf, 2012 ND 151, 819 N.W.2d 546 at the ND Supreme Court and won, requiring prosecutors across the state to change the way they prosecuted blood draw DUIs and ultimately led the ND legislature to adopt a new law to circumvent the Court’s decision.
