(PRWEB) July 15, 2014
The DUI Defense Lawyers Association (DUIDLA), an international DUI Bar Association, announced today the formation of the non-profit DUIDLA Justice Foundation (DUIDLAJF) and the appointment of its first three trustees. The DUIDLA was founded on the core principles of democracy, transparency and education. DUIDLA’s vision includes giving back to the legal community. This giving back is achieved through the formation of DUIDLAJF (the Foundation). The Foundation’s simple goal is to provide for scholarships and research monies to advance the technical knowledge of the DUI-DWI defense bar. The profits of DUIDLA will be funded into DUIDLAJF so that grants for young lawyers and the nation’s best public defenders may obtain advanced training in science and trial skills.
The mission of the Foundation will be assured by the acceptance of three prominent teachers and leaders in DUI-DWI defense: William “Bubba” Head of Atlanta, Georgia, Josh D. Lee of Vinita, OK, and Justin J. McShane of Harrisburg, PA.
Attorney William “Bubba” Head is an internationally known and highly regarded DUI-DWI litigator known by many as the “father of modern DUI defense”. Though based in Atlanta, he has a national practice. He is a frequent lecturer, media consultant and author. He has consulted with ABC News and "Prime Time Live". He has also been invited to speak to the Georgia General Assembly's House Judiciary Committee on the subject of DUI law. He has volunteered thousands of hours to train the current and next generation of DUI-DWI defense attorneys.
Attorney Josh D. Lee of Vinita, OK, is an international educational speaker. He has been a featured speaker in over 18 states and volunteers hundreds of hours each year in teaching lawyers and judges all over the US the science behind DUI-DWI. He is an active criminal and DUI-DWI litigator. Attorney Lee is a published author on various science and law topics including gas chromatography, blood testing, breath testing, oral fluid testing, forensic science reform, and search and seizure. Attorney Lee consults with attorneys all across the United States about their cases. Attorney Lee is an ACS-CHAL Forensic Lawyer-Scientist.
Attorney Justin J. McShane of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania is a trial attorney who specializes in using forensic science in defending citizens amongst us who have been accused by the Government. He is nationally known and well regarded for being a skilled and fierce litigator, but is also well known for his strong understanding and in-depth knowledge in all forms of forensic science. He too is an ACS-CHAL Forensic Lawyer-Scientist. He is a frequent invited guest lecturer at international, national, state and local seminars that are attended by prosecutors, police, investigators, lawyers, judges, academics, scientists, machine manufacturers, and policy-makers. He has lectured over 300 times in 30 states and internationally.
The DUIDLA Justice Foundation Board is also comprised of two additional national DUI-DWI litigators, Evan M. Levow, of Cherry Hill, New Jersey, and Linda M. Callahan, from Seattle, Washington. Mr. Levow is also the President of the DUI Defense Lawyers Association. Ms. Callahan is serving as the Treasurer of the Justice Foundation. Levow said, "DUIDLA is honored to have Bubba, Justin and Josh heading the Justice Foundation. DUI Defense education has taken a monumental step forward today through the creation of the DUIDLA Justice Foundation, guided by these three gifted lawyers."
