Cody M. Christiansen recently received advanced level training, from the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys, on how to fight Marijuana (Cannabis) DUI Cases. It is critical for attorneys to understand the general and clinical indicators that law enforcement officers are trained to look for in marijuana cases and to know the alternative causes for these indicators. Importantly, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) states that marijuana impairment can rapidly diminish between 1 and 2 1/2 hours, that some metabolites are non-impairing, and that concentrations of metabolites found in a person’s system cannot be tied to impairment. In fighting and winning marijuana DUI cases, it is important to know that the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests are not effective in detecting marijuana impairment. This training was provided by Trey Tull, a Standardized Field Sobriety Testing Instructor Member of the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys and he is based out of West Monroe, Louisiana.
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.
Cody Christiansen is a native of the central coast of California for over 25 years. Few people can say they grew up and went to high school in the same area in which they practice law. This gives Cody a unique understanding of the area; he knows the cities, he knows the communities, he knows the people.
Cody’s will tell you his career began when he lived in Brazil for two years giving voluntary service as a missionary. This experience made him acutely aware of the social, political and legal difficulties other people face and have to overcome.
Upon returning to the United States, he earned a degree from the University of California at Santa Barbara in global and international studies focusing on the cultural and social migration patterns of people. With a strong desire to help and defend people, Cody then earned a Juris Doctor degree in law and became an attorney.
Cody is uniquely suited to help and defend his clients because he fluently speaks Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian.
Drawing on his experiences in Brazil, Cody taught immigration and naturalization at Allan Hancock College to help people come to this country and build a life here.
As a criminal defense attorney, Cody worked for the Santa Barbara County Public Defender’s Office. He handled an extremely complex case load that included domestic violence, drugs, DUI’s, theft, burglary, sex crimes, etc.
Cody worked as an arraignment deputy, handled Prop 36 drug calendar working closely with rehabilitative service providers and probation officers, and managed a child support contempt calendar. Cody also defends many people in federal court, whose crimes have resulted in federal charges causing them to be placed in removal proceedings and in federal custody.
Of all his accomplishments, the one Cody is most proud of and upon which he places the highest importance is his family; his marriage to his wife of thirteen years and his four children.
