National DUI Attorneys
A Dedicated Criminal Defense Firm in Denver
The National College for DUI Defense and the DUI Defense Lawyers Association is an exclusive organization that exists to educate and train the country's top DUI defense attorneys. As DUI laws have become increasingly tougher in recent years, so has the need for educating and training criminal defense attorneys on the highly specific and scientific area of DUI defense. Because of this need these two organizations were formed.
