Recently the American Chemical Society (ACS) held a five day intensive course on Gas Chromatography (GC). Gas Chromatography is used for DUI blood testing right here in Pennsylvania and around the country. Any DUI lawyer worth his/her salt should be well versed in how Gas Chromatography works and how it can yield erroneously high blood alcohol rates. Unfortunately, most lawyers defending DUI cases in PA don’t know the basics of GC and therefore, cannot confidently challenge its results. I am an expert in Gas Chromatography and written a number posts about GC and its effects in the DUI and forensic arenas.
The American Chemical Society is a scientific society. This training was a laboratory-based, hands-on, 40-hour course. I was able to take away from it a lot of knowledge that I will be able to use in the courtroom while defending DUI cases for the citizen of PA.
If you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of searching for a DUI lawyer, be sure to ask the candidates about Gas Chromatography and how many training courses they have attended on the subject.
