If you already own The DUII Trial Notebook, a PDF version of the 2016 Update has been provided to you. Those who wish to purchase a 2016 Update hard copy for $29 may do above by selecting the appropriate option.

OCDLA thanks editors Robert Crow and Ben Eder for their efforts compiling this year's update to the DUII Trial Notebook.

OCDLA’s 2014 edition is unlike any previous edition — the book has been streamlined into two parts, with the Notebook’s (one binder) motions, checklists, case law and practice tips slim enough to carry with you to court and the “Resource Guide” (two binders) beefed up and categorized, providing the basis for deeper research and learning, broad enough to act as your own DUII defense library in your office or on your hard drive. A total of three binders full of useful manuals and DMV forms if you choose to purchase the hardcopy, and scores of useful links to resources online.

The Notebook has extensive revisions to the sections on The Offense (with felony, misdemeanors, and boats/bikes/and other vehicles included right up front), and Field Sobriety Testing. Three brand new chapters have been added— a) “The Client” by John Powers which provides a great overview of what your client needs to know and expect in a DUII case; b) “Violations & Other Charges” by Mark Cogan and Jeff Turnoy, which presents the nuts and bolts of handling said violations and related charges; and c) “Breath, Blood, and Urine” by Donald Molnar and Kenn Meneely which provides an exhaustive look at the forensics of alcohol testing, with insider tips on cross-examining the Intoxilyzer, Widmark formulations, and retrograde extrapolation. There are more revisions than we can name, but which incorporate the excellent work of attorneys in all previous editions, guaranteeing that this is the one & only manual on DUII Defense in Oregon you could ever wish for.
