ONLY defense attorneys are admitted and attorneys who belong to a firm that prosecutes traffic matters are not permitted to attend.

Meanwhile on the regular program, presenters will show you how to put theory into a dozen different OWI practice areas. Whether you have tried 50 cases or are just starting your OWI practice, this seminar offers defense attorneys at every level practical tips on improving their practice. The two-day seminar will give you the opportunity to network with other practitioners and speak informally with the presenters. As a special feature, Oregon attorney John Henry Hingson, Past President of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers will give the Keynote Address. And as is our tradition, at the close of Day One, attendees will once again be invited to the always popular evening social event held at The Paddock Club in Elkhart Lake.
