Like i said, I have a criminal defense attorney retained who does not specialize in DWI. After receiving a copy of the state's evidence I decided to get a second opinion form an attorney who is a founding member of the National Drunk Driving Defense College. Although my retained attorney is a very nice and smart man, there are some issues I feel will be better handled by a specialist, such as jurisdiction and a possible illegal stop.
After reviewing the evidence (video and police report) the DWI attorney told me I have a "good case to tri" which I guess means a good case to take to trial.
The DWI attorney didn't make much small talk and didn't take much time to explain, but seemed to know his stuff.
What are your thoughts? what would you do?The DWi attorney said both the jurisdiction and illegal stop were vaild challenges to the states evidence.
