NJ DUI Defense Attorney
Through further litigation, Evan Levow was ultimately able to get the breath test results in Chun’s case dismissed. Mr. Levow has taught judges, prosecutors, and defense attorneys the forensic science of blood testing. All of the lawyers at Levow DWI Law study the science and attend continuing eduction seminars and training in blood, urine and drug testing. Mr. Levow’s work changed how the state is required to present evidence and witnesses, whereby the state is now required to produce live testimony to establish how blood was drawn, handled and tested. Mr. Levow has taught breath testing, blood testing and urine testing, as well as field sobriety testing and DRE – Drug Recognition Evaluation. Every lawyer at Levow DWI Law has been trained and qualified in field sobriety testing by the same agency that trained the police officer who administered your road-side exercises, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Evan Levow was the first attorney in New Jersey to be qualified as an instructor in field sobriety testing, back in 2004. Mr. Levow became an instructor in field sobriety testing so he could understand the tests as well as or better than the officers. We are the only law firm in the state of New Jersey to own both the original breath testing machine, the Draeger® Breathalyzer 900, and the newer and currently used Draeger Alcotest® 7110 MKIII-C. All of our attorneys went through the Draeger manufacturer training to become certified in the operation and maintenance of the Alcotest 7110 MKIII-C. Because of our in-depth and unparalleled participation in State v. Chun, along with our ownership of the Alcotest 7110 MKIII-C and vast knowledge of how the machine works, we thoroughly understand the machine you were tested on and it’s possible errors. Our DWI defense lawyers have advanced training in blood and urine testing, and have also been trained in the Drug Recognition Evaluation program.
