Robert H. Hanaford recently received advanced level training, from the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys, on attacking DUI reports and videos in DUI cases. To effectively attack DUI reports and videos, it is critical to know and use the officer’s NHTSA Manuals against him. Even the most experienced officers miss important steps and make mistakes in DUI investigations, which can result in people being wrongfully arrested for DUI. Some key areas to focus attention on are: discrepancies between the police report and the video, officers who ignore/downplay/neglect injuries and medical conditions, the officer’s instructions and demonstrations of the field sobriety tests, an officer’s use of trick questions, improper classification of clues, copy and pasting errors, misused keywords, and poor quality reports when a video is present. This training was provided by Peter Krantz, a former law enforcement officer who was a Drug Recognition Expert and a Standardized Field Sobriety Testing Instructor. Peter has transitioned out of law enforcement and is now in law school to become an attorney who will defend people who are arrested for DUI.
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.
