Continuing Education

This past week I completed a four day hands-on course in Chicago. The picture to the left shows the attendees that completed the course.

The training included lecture/lab with the world's top scientists in the gas chromatography field, including Dr.'s Harold McNair and Lee Polite, and has been approved by the American Chemical Society.

For what purpose? When blood is drawn from an accused person, it is sent to a lab and analyzed using a gas chromatograph. A chromatogram is printed out with a results sheet showing an alleged blood alcohol content. These results often determine whether someone will be prosecuted for DUI and used as evidence.

I felt it was necessary to get the actual training on the actual instruments and I went to the source. I learned a great deal, but now more fully understand how easily results can be false, several more defenses, and have more overall knowledge to use in defending my clients.
