Troy Barnett, Premier DUI Attorney, Advanced Level Training on Blood Draw Tube Validation Issues on DUI – Marijuana Cases

Troy Barnett of Salem, Ohio recently received advanced level training, from the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys, on Blood Draw Tube Validation Issues on DUI – Marijuana Cases. Troy received training that it has been discovered that some blood test tube certifications were only for alcohol purposes and that some blood draw tubes, including the chemicals contained inside for preservative and anti-coagulants, have never been validated for THC testing. This training was provided by Ziad Youssef. Mr. Youssef is a Member of the Association and he has been designated as the State Ambassador for the Association in the State of Washington. Mr. Youssef’s office is in Bellingham, Washington and his website address is http://bellinghamdui.lawyer/.

Mr. Youssef discovered that the blood draw tubes being used in his area were never validated for THC testing and the manufacturer confirmed that none of their blood collection tubes have been validated for Marijuana, Cannabis, or Active THC testing. Thus, any such blood evidence in DUI – Marijuana cases may be subject to suppression.

The American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys has compiled information from Judges, Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutors (the Top DUI Prosecutors in each State), DUI Prosecutors, current Law Enforcement Officers, former Law Enforcement Officers, and DUI Defense Attorneys to determine exactly what skills, knowledge, training, tools, resources, and strategies win the most DUI cases at trial and are also used to get DUI cases successfully resolved for the defense prior to trial.

When people need a DUI Attorney, the biggest challenge is knowing whether or not an attorney truly has the skills, knowledge, training, tools, resources, and strategies that are needed to successfully resolve and win DUI cases. Countless attorneys handle DUI cases. But, only a very small percentage have the skills, knowledge, training, tools, resources, and strategies that are needed to successfully resolve and win DUI cases.

Members of the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys have received advanced level training on the strategies that win the most DUI cases at trial and are also used to get DUI cases successfully resolved for the defense prior to trial. Members of the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys also have access to the resources and tools that are used to win and successfully resolve DUI cases and these are resources and tools that only a very small percentage of DUI attorneys have access to and use.
