Course Description

When handling a drunk driving case, it is crucial to understand how observational evidence can be used against your client. Just like breath or blood testing, field detection of your client can be used to convict, and attorneys must not make the mistake of overlooking this critical part of a drunk driving case.

This course, presented by Jason T. Komninos, Esq., a Qualified Standardized Field Sobriety Testing Practitioner, will provide an overview of the issues surrounding observational evidence, including the three Standardized Field Sobriety Tests, and practical tips on confronting these issues at trial.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Assess observational evidence in drunk driving cases
  2. Identify the three Standardized Field Sobriety Tests
  3. Develop strategies for trial and cross-examination

This course originally appeared as a part of our February 2018 Bridge the Gap Event.
