well a couple things to remember
00:05
first of all field sobriety tests as
00:08
they’re called by the police and balance
00:10
and coordination tests as they’re called
00:12
by the defense bar are mostly total
00:14
nonsense they’re affected by a wide
00:16
variety of conditions that have nothing
00:18
to do with the question of whether or
00:19
not someone’s intoxicated and breath
00:23
eliezer machines are based on a lot of
00:27
junk science even at their best they’re
00:30
they’re based on not very good science
00:33
and there’s all kinds of things that go
00:35
wrong with the machines failure to
00:37
calibrate failure to maintain them
00:39
failure to operate them correctly in
00:41
your case and and I think that everyone
00:44
who who has been charged with a DUI
00:46
because the consequences are so severe

and kind of ripple throughout my clients
00:50
lives they need somebody to with an
00:53
expert eye to take a look at that case
00:55
see if the prosecution can prove it and
00:58
coordinate with the DMV proceedings
01:01
which go alongside any DUI to come up
01:04
with the best disposition for any client
