Hudson T. Bair, a California native, went to law school at Golden Gate School of Law located in San Francisco, California. He graduated in 1994 and was admitted to the California Bar in December of that same year. Following graduation, he worked on behalf of individuals injured by work-related contact with asbestos. While representing these individuals he became acutely aware of medical issues relating to lungs, specifically impaired lung function due to asbestos and other occupational causes. That interest led him to the area of breath testing, specifically breath testing for the presence of alcohol. In 1997, he joined with Bruce Kapsack to form one of the top defense firms in California, focusing exclusively on defense of driving under the influence charges.\Mr. Bair has continued to focus on driving under the influence cases. As a member of the Association of California Deuce Defenders and the National College of DUI Defense, he frequently attends training sessions presented by these organizations.
To further his skills and training, Mr. Bair has also achieved certification as a Drug Recognition Screener. This very specialized training significantly elevates the chances for success in cases where alcohol is not the suspected cause of the driver's impairment.
In June of 2000, Mr. Bair received certification as an Instructor in Standardized Field Sobriety testing (SFST). Completing a rigorous, forty-hour training session that included both classroom and practical training in the proper administration and use of SFST's.
Mr. Bair knows that his continued emphasis on education in the area of DUI defense strengthens his skills at negotiation and trial. Knowledge of the latest issues with regard to breath and blood testing, friendships with many of the top state and national defense attorneys and hard work are the best tools for a successful outcome to your case.
