Colorado defense attorney Jay Tiftickjian’s new book hits shelves in September. Colorado DUI Defense: The Law and Practice, by Tiftickjian and James Nesci, is written for the defense practitioner and contains 400 pages of valuable information, Colorado DUI law, and practice tips to help any DUI defense attorney win drunk driving cases.
“The book took two years to write, and in that time there were many times where we had to go back and revise sections due to changes in the law,” says Tiftickjian. The book, published by Lawyers and Judges Publishing Company, is the first book in Colorado written solely for DUI defense attorneys, and includes a Warpack of hundreds of cases and laws to cite when in the heat of battle.
From the publisher:
