ABOUT THE PROGRAM: DWI defense requires extensive knowledge of the area--statutes,
decisional law and the scientific bases of testing. NCDAA is well known for presenting
excellent, thorough DWI defense programs. These seminars provide complete information for
the practitioner in all areas of representation. This year's seminar will again be chaired by two
highly experienced DWI defense attorneys, NCDAA Board Member Russ Jones of North Platte
and NCDAA Past President Brad Roth of Lincoln. This program is designed to provide valuable
practice information to all attorneys who defend DWI cases, whether they are highly experienced
or just starting out.

ABOUT THE SPEAKERS: NCDAA is fortunate to have a group of outstanding speakers to
present this year's program. One of our guest speakers will be Fleming K. Whited III of
Daytona Beach, Florida who is one of the best known and most successful DWI attorneys in the
country. He writes several highly respected DWI related publications, is a former dean of the
National DUI Defense College and presents regularly at national DUI defense seminars.

The seminar will also feature Phillip Price of Huntsville, Alabama, another nationally known
DWI defense lawyer. He is considered one of the foremost authorities on breath test issues and
lectures extensively. He, too, is a former dean of the National DUI Defense College.

Bruce Kapsack of Oakland, California is an expert in field sobriety testing and how best to
challenge it. He is both an attorney and a certified field sobriety test instructor. NCDAA Board
Member Bell Island of Scottsbluff has participated in a field sobriety training course and will
provide his perspective along with other suggestions for successfully dealing with some of the
legal issues concerning field sobriety testing in Nebraska.

Judge Daniel Bryan will provide his insights on what makes an effective motion to suppress.
Prior to becoming a District Judge, Judge Bryan spent numerous years on the county bench. His
expertise in this area is acknowledged across the state.

Nationally known jury consultant Jill Holmquist of Lincoln will educate on jury selection in
DWI cases. She teaches at Nebraska Wesleyan University and has worked on jury selection
across the county. Recent developments in DWI defense will be provided by attorneys Matt
Kosmicki and Jeff Kirkpatrick of Lincoln and interlock provider Jerry Stanton of Grimes,
Iowa. This presentation will bring everyone current on recent developments of interest in
caselaw, legislation and with interlocks.

Probation officials Steve Rowoldt and Deb Minardi of Lincoln will discuss the new standards
for certification for drug and alcohol evaluation programs which have been mandated by the
courts.
