I know Nate from having attended several national DUI defense seminars with him. Most recently in January of 2016, I attended a seminar in Arizona in which Nate was a featured speaker. His presentation was extremely informative and helpful, and I learned many new "tips" in defending DUID cases from listening to his presentation. I recommend him to any citizen accused with DUID and OWI cases.
