As Dean of The National College of DUI Defense (NCDD), I would like to welcome and thank you for visiting our Website. I am truly moved to be a part of such a fine organization and would like to acknowledge that it is a privilege to serve as Dean. This organization is committed to excellence in our endeavor to educate lawyers and the public about DUI cases. Founded in 1995, The College’s membership is diverse and comprised of a thousand lawyers from nearly all 50 States. Our collective goal is to zealously defend persons who have been falsely accused of Driving Under the Influence and related charges.
Membership in this organization is dedicated to serious minded attorneys who are honestly seeking to expand their legal knowledge and improve their courtroom skills. This is not an entity that allows prospective members to join by simply submitting a short form and paying a fee. Once a member, as a quality control, we require lawyers to continue their education, by attending approved DUI defense seminars. We also offer our members the option to become certified as DUI specialists.
Those involved in this organization understand the severe consequences of a DUI conviction. They include a license suspension, incarceration, lost jobs, high insurance rates, lost education opportunities, and the denial of entry into some foreign countries. Accordingly, our mission is to aggressively protect every citizen’s right to be represented by competent counsel and therefore help maintain the presumption of innocence. In doing so, we will insist that Crime Lab technicians not deviate from acceptable and fair practices and that police officers treat citizens fairly.
It is my sincere hope that you will objectively review our extensive website so that you can educate yourself about the offense of DUI and better understand the complex nature of the scientific issues associated with representing someone accused of this crime.

A Resource for Lawyers and Judges
They say that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, but
they fail to warn you of the nearly two million steps that must follow in order
to finish the journey. Completing this book was similar to living in a boot
camp for three and a half years. The early research and initial drafting of the
book involved waking up every morning at 4 a.m. for almost two years. The
experience has caused me to be a stronger, wiser and more tolerant human
being. I give my unending thanks to my wife Susan Stein, who helped me to
maintain my composure during this process.
The desire to write this book emanated from my perception of a need for a reliable resource that DUI litigators could count upon as a focal point for formulating a viable defense. As a result, I wanted to author a book that both accurately describes the holdings of appellate cases and has reasonable, realistic suggestions in the practice pointers.
I owe a huge debt of gratitude to a long-time, dear friend who is member of my firm, Dennis Lyden. He is a brilliant lawyer with an exceptional talent for writing. His gifts as a wordsmith and grammarian assisted me every step of the way during this challenging endeavor. Our numerous editorial arguments over the past year(s) have resulted in a truly fine finished product.
Additionally, I wish to express my deep appreciation to the talented lawyers in my firm who assisted me during this endeavor. They are: Steven Ward, Brian Caron, T. Kevin Mooney, Mary Beth Wood, Erin Gerstenzang, and Trina Griffiths. Their patience and faith helped make this work possible.
A special thanks also goes out to Dr. Stefan Rose and Dr. David Stafford for their assistance and contributions with the portions of the book that are dedicated to scientific and chemical evidence.
In summation, to be a good trial lawyer, you must know the facts, possess an above-average grasp of the historical development of DUI law and have knowledge of the intricacies and predilections of human nature. Add practical experience and a zeal to excel to this formula, and you have the "right stuff' to succeed in court. This book is published for those lawyers who are brave enough to proceed to trial for their clients accused of DUI.
Finally, I hope that judges who preside over DUI matters will find this book to be an accurate source to assist them in their decision-making process.
