Episode 43: TLC Faculty Member, Eric Ganci on What it Takes to be a Top Rated DUI Lawyer

“There is so much math, science, and procedure that goes into taking a DUI case especially when you get into alcohol levels, alcohol absorption elimination, blood testing, breath testing, and more. If we are approaching a DUI case using the TLC method, it is about telling a story and if you are getting real deep into fact and numbers, then many times, one: you are playing into the prosecution’s case and two: if you’re explaining, your losing. You have to be careful you don’t get into too many facts and lose the story completely. “- Eric Ganci (’13 TLC1 Grad & Faculty Member)
