These seminars are presented and attended by the Nation’s top OWI defense lawyers, and this continuous education keeps Mr. Barone on the cutting edge.
Drunk driving, DUI, or OWI offenses are one of the most common offenses in our country and our courtrooms. An OWI is also one of the most difficult charges to defend because they are one of the only crimes in America that is not afforded the constitutional safeguards we have all come to know and appreciate. The evidentiary, scientific and procedural processes of defending DUIs has grown so complex over time as a result of continuing to lower the “legal limit” and placing harsher penalties on people charged with and convicted of an OWI. Chemical analysis is not the only aspect that your OWI defense lawyer should attack.
