Stephen has written and published the Citizen's Guide to a Marijuana Arrest in Texas book.  This book is designed for folks who have been or who know someone who has been charged with Possession of Marijuana in Texas.  It is a straight-forward book with lots of real advise.  You can obtain your copy at texasmarijuana.attorney

In addition to defending folks on Possession of Marijuana , Stephen also fights DWI charges involving alcohol and marijuana.  He has spoken throughout Texas and several other states regarding how to defend DWI cases.  He has taught hundreds of other lawyers how to try DWI marijuana cases and has taught DWI and Marijuana blood testing thru the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association. 

Stephen is trained under the National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA) guidelines to administer the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFST) and has completed training as an instructor of the SFSTs.  He has completed the training as a breath test operator of the Intoxilyzer 5000 breath test machine (the same machine used in Texas for court room breath tests).  He has also completed training as a breath test instructor and maintenance technician of the unit.

Stephen owns two (2) Intoxilyzer units (the same units that Texas uses for evidentiary breath tests).  He owns a portable breath test machine and the same field sobriety testing manuals used by law enforcement officers.  He is a member of the National College for DUI Defense, National Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys, the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyer’s Association, and several regional associations.

Stephen has attended the Robert F. Borkenstien course on Alcohol and Highway Safety, Testing, Research and Legislation taught at Indiana University.  This is the same course the prosecutor’s Intoxilyzer expert attended.  In addition, Stephen has completed the Blood Testing Gas Chromatograph training in Chicago.  This school covers the operation and use of the machine that Texas uses to test a person’s blood for alcohol and or drugs. Stephen has also completed the solid state drug testing class in Chicago.  This is the same type of training that lab techs in Texas receive to test drugs, both illegal and legal.
