Blood and Breath Testing in New York DWI Cases: Skills for Making the Science of Measuring Blood Alcohol Simple
Created on December 18, 2016
In this course, attorney Steven Epstein will begin with an overview of why measuring for blood alcohol in DWI cases is relevant in New York State and what methods police use to conduct such measurement. The focus will then shift to a discussion of the process of breath testing, specifically infrared spectroscopy and the basic scientific theories that relate to breath testing including Henry's Law and the Beer-Lambert Law of Absorption, simplified so that the lawyer without any scientific knowledge can gain an understanding of how it works. Mr. Epstein will then discuss blood testing, specifically gas chromatography and the basics of how a gas chromatograph measures blood alcohol content from a blood specimen, also simplified so that the lawyer without any scientific knowledge can develop skills for discussing and presenting the process in court. He will then examine some real life breath and blood cases and demonstrate how this knowledge can be of assistance in winning your DWI cases in the courtroom.
