Douglas Herring recently received advanced level training, from the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys, on understanding the flaws in the Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) program. The program is not infallible because DRE Officers are just like any other officer, they just have two additional weeks of training. While they are often considered as “experts” in the courtroom, what other person can be an expert in the courtroom after only two weeks of training? They really aren’t experts at all. DRE Evaluations can easily be fudged by an officer to match their internal bias and formal opinion because there is no way to recreate or confirm the measurements an officer claims in his report. This training was taught by a current and active law enforcement officer who is both a Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST) Instructor and a Drug Recognition Expert Instructor and was willing to share with our Association the significant problems with the DRE program.

The American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys has compiled information from Judges, Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutors (the Top DUI Prosecutors in each State), DUI Prosecutors, current Law Enforcement Officers, former Law Enforcement Officers, and DUI Defense Attorneys to determine exactly what skills, knowledge, training, tools, resources, and strategies win the most DUI cases at trial and are also used to get DUI cases successfully resolved for the defense prior to trial.

When people need a DUI Attorney, the biggest challenge is knowing whether or not an attorney truly has the skills, knowledge, training, tools, resources, and strategies that are needed to successfully resolve and win DUI cases. Countless attorneys handle DUI cases. But, only a very small percentage have the skills, knowledge, training, tools, resources, and strategies that are needed to successfully resolve and win DUI cases.

Members of the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys have received advanced level training on the strategies that win the most DUI cases at trial and are also used to get DUI cases successfully resolved for the defense prior to trial. Members of the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys also have access to the resources and tools that are used to win and successfully resolve DUI cases and these are resources and tools that only a very small percentage of DUI attorneys have access to and use.
