DUI -DWI EXPERT SERVICES

OUR DIFFERENCE
We've been there.  We are here - For You!

There are many differences between an expert witness and a consulting expert.  I appreciate and respect the former law enforcement officers who provide expert testimony in hearings and trials.  There are several I recommend to testify on behalf of clients.  However, they do not have experience as either a prosecutor, defense attorney, or civil litigator. 

Our services go beyond the scope of a technical evaluation.  We are your partner, not merely a tool.   We offer assistance and advice based upon our experience in the streets making arrests and the in the courtroom making the case.  We know what it takes to effectively litigate cases in and out of the courtroom.  This experience can be invaluable. 

Dean Morgan, our lead trainer and consultant, has evaluated DUI cases from every possible angle.  We respect the law enforcement officers who serve as experts.  We believe they offer a valuable service.  However, their experience as a law enforcement officer and a testifying expert may not be what you need.

We are Consulting Experts.  We help attorneys better understand factual information - specifically SFST, ARIDE, and DRE.  We can also help you prepare for cross-examination or deposition of the opposing side’s experts or law enforcement officers.  Most importantly, we can help develop a trial or litigation strategy.  One benefit of our services is that we are generally protected from discovery concerns absent a showing of exceptional circumstances.

We offer a variety of services including case reviews, legal nurse consulting, and legal research. 

We pride ourselves on being partners to your case, not simply a tool to achieve a result.  We strongly believe that every DUI case can benefit from ther assistance of an expert.  We offer multiple service options to meet every need.   We also offer volume discounts to repeat clients, allowing you to have an on-call DUI expert.

OUR CASE REVIEW PROCESS
GENERAL INFORMATION:   Whether you have a criminal case or a civil case, we are here to help. We offer our services to prosecutors, defense attorneys, and civil litigators in the United States and Canada.  We will consider services in other countries on a case by case basis.  Once you submit your case to us, our process is as follows:

1) Preliminary Video Review:  Our first video review is conducted without the aid of a police report.  We review the traffic stop, personal contact, SFST, and post-arrest interactions to determine whether each step was conducted properly and, if not, what errors were made by the officer.

2) Written Discovery Review:  We next review the police report.  Here, we are reviewing the report to determine if it is complete and whether the basis for the detention, the driver's conduct, SFST, ARIDE Performance, etc. are sufficient to support probable cause to arrest/impairment sufficient to convict.  We also review DRE Reports, Accident Reports, and other relevant information.

3) Secondary Video Review:  Armed with information from the police report, we review the video a second time.  This time, we are reviewing the video to determine whether the police report is accurate and complete.   Submit your case today.
