As a criminal DUI/DWI defense lawyer in one of Virginia's leading DUI defense firms, I have read this text along with others including The Defense of Drunk Drivers published by West.

This text, Drunk Driving Defense, without mention, is not a text for laypersons; it is specifically written for attorneys interested in the minute aspects of DUI defense litigation and the technical arenas of blood alcohol testing. The book provides fundamentals in the technical defenses and assumptions in DUI cases, but not at the level one would expect from a hornbook.

Indeed, I agree with the statement that this book has an overview of the laws of the 50 states. For persons interested in defending cases in Virginia, I would recommend the text mentioned above from West along with publications of the VCLE of the Virginia Law Foundation. Both of these references have a more concrete treatment of DUI defense litigation in the Commonwealth.

This new edition is even better than the previous editions -- which were great! Updated laws, new scientific studies on breath alcohol analysis and field sobriety tests, new sample pretrial motions and cross-examinations, jury selection, license suspensions, etc. I particularly found the detailed checklists helpful, along with the sample cross-examinations of the cop on things like DUI symptoms, nystagmus, field sobriety tests and breath tests. Taylor's book became my bible years ago, and this new edition is even bigger and better!

I have been referred this book by colleagues which I just purchased so my review will be pending my examination of the book, but at the very least it will look good on my desk or shelf. As a fellow Los Angeles DUI Defense Attorney ([...] I am always seeking new information that may help in defending a client against DUI charges in any of the Los Angeles or Orange County Courts. I know I am essentially endorsing my competition here, but it is a genuine feat to make time to pen a scholarly text and so I applaud the effort and I'll check back on the content soon.

I read this book for the first time more than a decade ago when I first became a serious student of the DUI laws and the defense of those accused of them. Since then I've read dozens of books, and have even written a couple of them.Defending Drinking Drivers. Larry Taylor's book still stands without equal as the best of its kind. Highly recommended.
