Beating a DUI charge in GA involves 9 essential DUI lawyer skills, credentials and attributes. This page focuses on Number 5 below, the unmatched years of laboratory experience for Georgia DUI lawyers that Mr. Head has received on forensic laboratory testing, as part of his post-law school training on Georgia laws:
After taking his first NHTSA standardized field sobriety test court in July of 1994, Mr. Head learned about the Intoxilyzer brand of breathalyzer test machines in October of 1996. The 1996 course was funded by Mr. Head, but over 30 DUI attorneys from as far away as Alaska came to Atlanta to be trained.
As part of his voluntary, private training for learning How to Fight a DUI, Mr. Head has been through multiple additional training sessions on both the Intoxilyzer 5000 and the new Intoxilyzer 9000. Mr. Head recently (February of 2017) had hands-on training on the Intoxilyzer 9000.
Beginning in 1998, Mr. Head organized a blood and urine training course for himself and other DUI lawyers to attend. This initial course was taught at Lake Tahoe, CA by Dr. Richard Jensen, Bob Zettl, and Ann Manley.
Following this multi-day forensic laboratory training course, two years later, Mr. Head traveled to Memphis, TN to the State of Tennessee’s crime laboratory for western Tennessee. At this location, Mr. Head was the guest of Dr. David Stafford, who helped teach Mr. Head about over a dozen different crime laboratory instruments and sample preparation devices.
These different devices are routinely used by crime laboratories, including the GBI in Georgia, to analyze blood, urine, and other biological specimens. Mr. Head videotaped the methods of analysis or marijuana, alcohol, prescription drugs, and edited the video to later use in training other DUI lawyers across America.
This unique Memphis training, in 2000, helped Mr. Head train other DUI attorneys at two comprehensive crime laboratory training courses in 2008 One in Georgia and one on California). If a DUI lawyer cannot understand how drugs and alcohol are analyzed and quantified by a crime lab, his or her Client cannot have effective legal representation.
