Attorney Gigstad to Attend National College for DUI Defense Winter Session


At Gigstad Law Office, LLC, our firm continually strives to stay at the cutting edge of the criminal and DUI defense practice areas. To further our capabilities in the DUI defense arena, we are proud to announce that Attorney Robert Gigstad will be attending the National College for DUI Defense's Winter Session: Cannabis and Cars - What You Need to Know to Defend A Marijuana DUI Case.

The National College for DUI Defense (NCDD) is a professional, non-profit corporation committed to bestowing our legal community with the knowledge and resources it needs to best defend the rights of suspected drunk drivers. According to its website, the NCDD's mission is to provide "the finest advanced-level training available to the DUI Defense Law practitioner." Its educational sessions are attended by lawyers from all over the country looking to advance their understanding of this highly-scientific and always-evolving practice area.

The 2016 Winter Session will take place in Marina Del Rey, California over January 20 to January 22, 2016. Some of the seminars listed in the agenda include:

  • DRE (drug recognition expert) and ARIDE Overview
  • Live DRE Demonstration
  • A Critical Review of the Scientific Reliability of the DRE Process
  • Fourth Amendment Issues
  • Lab Testing of Blood

The session is sure to confront the highly contested methods that go into marijuana DUI enforcement in many states. Unlike alcohol-based driving offenses, there is little scientific consensus on measuring a driver's capability to drive based on the widely used blood tests that only detect long-metabolized remnants of the drug.

Attorney Gigstad's attendance to this week's NCDD Winter Session is just one more testament to the diligence and knowledge we are ready to employ in defense of our clients. We look forward to ensuring that more drivers that come to our firm benefit from the insight provided by the NCDD.
