SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (PRWEB) August 01, 2013
Craig Rosenstein of Rosenstein Law Group, PLLC, a Scottsdale-based DUI defense law firm, announced today that he has achieved the title of a DUI Defense Specialist and is Board Certified by the National College for DUI Defense, Inc. Rosenstein is the first and only DUI Defense Law specialist in Maricopa County.
In order to be recognized as a specialist in any legal area of expertise, an attorney must meet certain minimum practice requirements and pass both written and oral examinations testing their knowledge of substantive and procedural law in their desired field of specialization through the American Bar Association. Specifically, in order to become Board Certified as a DUI Defense Law specialist, the examination focuses on complicated scientific issues, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) guidelines on field sobriety tests and drug recognition tests, as well as other legal and ethical issues applicable to the defense of drunk driving cases.
While Arizona has the toughest DUI laws in the United States, there are only three DUI specialists in the state, with Rosenstein being the only specialist in Maricopa County; the other two specialists are located in Tucson.
The American Bar Association through the National College of DUI Defense, Inc. offers the specialty certification program in order to help the public recognize and identify lawyers who focus their practice areas in defending those accused of DUI and who have demonstrated their competence to do so. Board of Regents certified its first lawyers in 1999 and nationally, there are currently less than 50 specialists nationwide.
Craig Rosenstein is a graduate of the University of Arizona in Tucson, Ariz., where he earned his Bachelor of Arts undergraduate degree in Political Science. Following his undergraduate education, Rosenstein received his Juris Doctorate (J.D.) degree at Arizona State University Law School. During his time at Arizona State University Law School, he was an active member in Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity, and he clerked for one of the Arizona State Legislators, while also clerking for a solo practitioner. After law school, Rosenstein became partner of a law firm, where he handled the firm's business law, civil litigation and DUI defense cases. Rosenstein then went on to found Rosenstein Law Group, PLLC.
