Attorneys Tad Nelson & Amber Spurlock are keenly aware of this truth. We’ve built a nationally renown law firm with a legal team that actively undergoes education and training to remain on the cutting edge of DWI Science.

As disciplined students of the art of articulating reasonable doubt, we know that it helps when a good courtroom defense strategy is backed up by the science. The vigorous training and dedication to craft that becoming certified as an ACS/CHAL Lawyer-Scientist entails, is enough to distinguish the Law Offices of Tad Nelson & Associates’ attorneys from most of our colleagues.
