Masters of DUI 2017
The Masters of DUI program for 2017 is an insightful blend of the technical, practical and behavioral. This year, in addition to the customary presentation of the case law update and the ethics panel, we have added nationally recognized speakers on a variety of topics that will ensure a well-rounded and informative curriculum. Featured are Attorney Leonard Stamm of Maryland, the Honorable Ginger Lerner Wren of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and Ms. Janine Arvizu of New Mexico. Leonard Stramm is a leading authority on breath testing. His expertise in the field is a strong mix of legal perspective with excellent technical knowledge. Judge Wren has earned national attention for her innovative and ground breaking work developing and implementing the mental health court project in Broward County. The Broward County Mental Health Court was one of the very first of its kind in the country and has provided the model for this type of judicial administration. Ms. Arvizu is a nationally recognized world class forensic toxicologist and scientist whose remarkable investigative work was the highlight of the Netflix documentary “Making A Murderer.” In all, combining to make the 2017 Masters of DUI a seminar not to be missed.
