Attorney Gigstad attended the 2017 “DWI Means Defend With Ingenuity”
seminar. The seminar was held in Las Vegas, Nevada, on October 5-7, hosted
by the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) and the
National College of DUI Defense (NCDD).
In a series of meetings, DUI defense attorneys gathered to discuss the
newest scientific and legal approaches being used to get the best possible
outcomes for defendants in DUI cases. Lawyers from all over the nation
convened to learn from one another, share ideas, and discuss how to better
serve clients facing DUI charges. In one such presentation, Attorney William
Kirk, addressed various blood alcohol content (BAC) testing methods, including
UAs, EtGs, BAs, SCRAM, and more, and how test results can be handled in
court to benefit the defendant. This was one of several informative presentations
made related to DUI toxicology, chemical testing, and standardized field
sobriety tests used to determine a driver’s level of impairment.
Attendees of the seminar were briefed on new case laws pertaining to DUI
cases and given other tools to improve their craft and increase the likelihood
of success for their clients. Speakers provided helpful tips and insights
for DUI defense lawyers navigating difficult cases involving serious injury,
death, expert witnesses, accident reconstruction, and more. Legal professionals
in attendance also broke up into smaller groups to discuss courtroom techniques,
DUI cases involving drug use, and new technology that could affect clients’
outcomes in criminal court.
