Field Sobriety Testing Qualifications

All three of the New Jersey DWI lawyers at Levow DWI Law are trained and qualified in field sobriety testing by the same agency that trains the police, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Additionally, Evan Levow is one of only five attorneys in the state, certified as an instructor in field sobriety testing, which means he is qualified to teach the police how to administer the field exercises you took road-side. The reason we underwent this training is to know the “testing” as well as or better than the officers. This way, we can analyze the exercises you performed, and determine whether the officer administered the testing correctly. If not, the reliability and validity of the testing is compromised. This may be one way to weaken the state’s case against you.

Advanced Training Blood, Urine Testing, & Drug Recognition Evaluation

Our New Jersey DWI lawyers have advanced training in Blood and Urine Testing, as well as the DRE – Drug Recognition Evaluation course. We have studied with top forensic scientists across the country, attending comprehensive seminars, in order to help us identify and evaluate blood and urine testing issues in your case. Along with other experts we might recommend to you, we determine whether the blood draw was done properly, whether the sample was stored properly, and whether proper testing procedures were applied in order to obtain an allegedly scientifically reliable result.

Advanced Training New Jersey DWI Breath Testing

We were the first law firm in New Jersey to own both the original breath testing machine, the Draeger® Breathalyzer 900, and the newer Draeger Alcotest® 7110 MKIII-C, which is the breath testing machine currently in use in New Jersey. All of our lawyers have undergone the Draeger factory certification training on the Alcotest®. Levow DWI Law also owns the Draeger® Breathalyzer 900, which was discontinued between 2005 and 2009 in favor of the Alcotest.

Evan Levow represented the lead defendant in State v. Chun, the most important DWI case in New Jersey history. Chun set the standard for DWI defense and prosecution in New Jersey and has also affected national protocol.

We are committed to applying all of our knowledge on breath testing to your case, based on our years of breath testing litigation experience, as well as the multiple seminars that we attend every year on DWI defense. We will assess whether you were properly observed by the arresting and testing officers prior to the breath testing. We will determine whether your medical history, employment or hobbies could possibly effect whether the sample you gave was accurately read by the breath testing machine. We know the problems with the Alcotest machine and its possible errors. If we can show that the machine was not working properly or not properly calibrated or that the person operating the machine was not qualified or certified, we can attempt to get the breath results thrown out.
