Need a Lenexa, Kansas Criminal Defense and DUI lawyer?
DUI is a common charge out of Lenexa, KS. Lenexa prosecutors and police officers train on obtaining DUI convictions. To even the playing field, we train extensively on DUI defense, learn their policies and practice, and even do some of our training from their own sources. We have been trained to administer the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests from the same manual which law enforcement use, the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration manual (NHTSA). We have taken the same written tests and visual observation exams the Lenexa police have taken. This comes in very handy during cross-examination of the Lenexa officer.
