Over the past year, Dave has taught the Understanding and Defending DUI Cases training course 30 times in 21 different states.
Like Miller & Wynn, Dave believes that the best way to fight a DUI case is to start by getting as much information as possible about the case. Although the attorney’s at Miller & Wynn have much of the same expert training that Dave has, we as your attorneys can not testify on your behalf. When our cases need expert assessment in preparation for trial, Dave evaluates the police report and all other associated paperwork along with any available audio and video tapes. He then produces a detailed written report that documents each of the important facts for the case. Dave specifically looks for areas where the officer did not follow his training, did not conduct a thorough investigation, conducted the field sobriety tests improperly, left important information out of the police report, misinterpreted his observations, and failed to make observations consistent with an impaired driver. Dave also identifies as many facts as possible that will show that a driver was not impaired. Once the strengths and weaknesses of the case have been identified, a plan for defending the case can be formulated. Dave then assists prior to trial by preparing cross examination questions for the officer that are designed to get the officer to testify positively for the defense. While preparing these questions, Dave utilizes the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) police training manuals that are used nationwide to train officers in DUI enforcement. Dave cross references these questions to the officer’s own NHTSA police training manuals. By doing this, the officer is forced to testify according to his training manuals. If the officer does not testify consistent with his training, his own training manuals will be used to discredit his testimony. Without a doubt, Dave Cox’s expert assessment has helped Miller & Hightower become one of the premier DUI Defense firms in West Georgia.
