After spending a long weekend with fellow
DWI lawyers at a DWI seminar I found the seminar to be informative. For instance,
not every state has a jury trial for a DWI offense. There are some jurisdictions
that do not recognize the National HIghway Traffic Safety Administration
(NHTSA) manual despite using all the tests. Most surprising, there are
some jurisdictions that do not have an open discovery policy. I would
find it difficult to properly prepare for a trial without having all the
evidence beforehand to analyze and prepare my defense.
The more I attend these seminars and compare and contrast other jurisdictions
the better I feel about being a Houston DWI attorney in Harris County, Texas.
