I explain to every client who walks into my office that there are ways to fight DUI cases but you have to hire an expert. An expert who is trained and educated in the operations of forensic laboratories will often find that the blood or breath test results in DUI cases do not produce reliable results. In several of my cases, a chemist who is a nationally known laboratory auditor uncovered serious operational flaws in two specific cases involving the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office.
Creating Pennsylvania DUI Resources
My expertise goes beyond being a DUI lawyer. I wrote the book on PA DUI law, and I understand both sides of a court case. I'm writing this blog to help people like you get the information they need to make good decisions about DUI defense.
What follows will be a series of blog postings about the laboratory at the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office and the errors that often take place in the testing process. Some are systemic. Others are case specific. One thing is clear: these errors seem to be producing unreliable lab results that often end up costing motorists their jobs, their future, and even their families.
