Seattle DUI Attorney Mark Blair – one of Blair & Kim, PLLC’s founding attorneys – has dedicated his professional career to protecting the rights, freedoms, and futures of clients facing criminal charges. As a former prosecutor, Attorney Blair understands how the “other side” thinks – an attribute that often proves beneficial for our firm’s clients. In an effort to gain a further understanding of the tactics used by law enforcement officers who administer DUI stops and tests, Attorney Blair recently completed the DWI Detection and Standardized Field Sobriety Testing Student Course.
The three-day DUI course – which is conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) is the same course officers must complete in order to arrest drivers for DUI and administer Standardized Field Sobriety Tests.
By earning his Certificate of Training, Attorney Blair was able to gain a precise understanding of the procedures officers must adhere to when administering tests to DUI suspects. With this knowledge, he is better equipped to identify mistakes made by law enforcement officers, which can be used to fight charges against his clients.
Training programs and continuing legal education (CLE) courses allow attorneys to expand their legal knowledge, improve their understanding of law enforcement tactics, and better represent clients facing criminal allegations. Attorney Blair and our entire legal team is committed to improving their skills to obtain the best possible results for the local residents we represent.
