N. Jeffrey Blankenship 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.

Information in this news release is the opinion of the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys (AAPDA), and the use of the AAPDA logo, is the opinion of AAPDA that members have met AAPDA’s proprietary selection criteria. AAPDA does not guarantee or imply the competence level of any attorney, whether or not they are a member of AAPDA. When hiring an attorney, a person should personally contact the attorney and confirm the attorney’s skills, knowledge, training, tools, resources, strategies and other credentials. Any decision to hire an attorney should be based on a person’s satisfaction, after contacting the attorney, that the attorney hired is who they feel comfortable with and want to represent them. The specific outcome of each DUI case cannot be anticipated or guaranteed by AAPDA, or anyone else, as many factors can affect the outcome of each individual case.
