Trained In DUI Techniques By An Ex-Police Officer

Jason S. Stevens is a founding member of the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys. Since 2013, he has also undergone continuous training from a former, nationally recognized law enforcement officer. This ex-police officer has taught him the art of defending against DUI charges. Today, Mr. Stevens' in-depth knowledge of the "tricks of the trade" allows him to effectively analyze DUI cases and take advantage of any flaws in the prosecutor's case.

If the sobriety tests weren't conducted properly, if the officer didn't have probable cause to pull you over, or if other mistakes were made, he can use it to your advantage. His goal is always to obtain a "not guilty" verdict at trial or get your case dismissed altogether. Let Mr. Stevens put his skill to work for you today.

Most Cops Don't Know The Strict Procedures — And This Can Make All The Difference

With the exception of everyday traffic violations, there are more citations issued and arrests made for DUI than any other crime. And, unfortunately for the accused, most officers do not follow the strict procedures that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) requires for a DUI conviction.

Why? Because of the complexity and sheer volume of information contained in the NHTSA training manuals. In fact, there are more than 4,000 pages of current teaching manuals as well as approximately 7,000 pages of past teaching manuals published by the NHTSA that officers are required to follow in every step of a DUI investigation.

As a result, DUI cases are extremely technical in nature and leave the officer little or no room for even the smallest error. After all, a single error can create reasonable doubt, which in turn can often cause a prosecutor to dismiss the charge or cause a jury to return a "not guilty" verdict.

With Mr. Stevens' knowledge and experience, he is often able to utilize the strict guidelines and policies of the NHTSA regulations to challenge the officer's credibility and promote favorable results.
