This is a podcast for DUI trial lawyers by a DUI trial lawyer. We hope to share some of the strategies and tactics that have helped us win in court. Whether you are a new attorney or a seasoned pro, I think there will be something for everyone to learn. As a DUI trial lawyer I will cover such topics as cross examination of the arresting officer, cross of the lab technician on blood cases, cross of the technician on breath cases, discovery issues, opening statements and everything in-between.
