Drink and keys

Our own Boston Criminal Defense Lawyer Joe Keegan recently attended the National College for DUI Defense® (NCDD) Winter Session conference in San Diego. As a proven advocate who has secured a number of successful resolutions in criminal and DUI cases, Attorney Keegan is committed to continually expanding his skills and professional abilities for the benefit of our clients. Attending professional conferences and educational events – especially those as extensive and highly regarded as the NCDD sessions – better prepares our legal team to fight effectively and successfully on behalf of our clients.

The NCDD is a professional, not-for-profit organization committed to improving the quality of criminal defense and educating the public about DUI defense as a legal specialty. DUI Defense Law was recognized as a specialty area of law by the American Bar Association (ABA) in 2003. Members of the NCDD are among the most experienced DUI attorneys in the nation.

Driving Under the Influence (DUI) – also referred to Operating Under the Influence (OUI) in Massachusetts – although an increasingly common offense, is often one of the most challenging cases handled by criminal defense attorneys. OUI lawyers must understand both scientific and legal elements, all of which can be wide-ranging. Advanced training provided by the NCDD educates attorneys about these complexities. At its past Winter Session, for example, the NCDD offered seminars on a variety of topics, including:

  • Challenging blood test results and labs that conduct tests
  • Using field sobriety tests to prove sobriety
  • Boating Under the Influence (BUI) defense
  • Jury selection
  • Cross-examination of arresting officers
  • Myths about blood, breath, and urine testing

The NCDD sessions complement our attorneys’ extensive experience, as well as their insight as former police officers. If you or your loved one has been charged with OUI or DUI in Boston or any of the surrounding communities of Massachusetts, call 617-799-7644.
