September 7, 2023 – Published by Robinson Law Firm

Attorney Les Robinson of The Robinson Law Firm was asked by Darrin Jordan, the 87th President of the NC State Bar, to speak on the topic of DWI Defense at a Continuing Legal Education seminar in Rowan County. Robinson introduced an approach he calls “Core 4 DWI Defense” that details advanced and progressive strategies for criminal defense lawyers to follow in order to successfully present a client’s defense against a DWI charge.

Attendees felt the presentation was exceedingly helpful, with one participant saying, “Les Robinson’s presentation was exactly what a CLE should be – clear, cogent and free of ambiguity – also done with humility and good humor.”­ Other attendees called the seminar “great”, “exceptional”, and “very informative”.
