Summary

Mr. Brock handles cases from simple speeding tickets to First Degree Murder, however his practice is primarily focused on DUI and drug related crimes. He is one of the few attorneys in the nation certified as an instructor in the DUI Detection & Standardized Field Sobriety Testing course recognized by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). This is the same course that police officers take in order to make DUI arrests while in the Academy. As impaired driving laws with regards to substances other than alcohol are becoming more prevalent, Mr. Brock is ahead of the curve with his education. He has been certified in ARIDE (Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement) to help disect when officers are making calls of reasonable suspicion based on alcohol OR drugs. He has also taken a modified version of the drug recognition evaluation (DRE) training given to law enforcement. DRE includes a number of different tests, field sobriety tests (some of which are also used to determine alcohol intoxication) as well as physiological tests, (such as those which measure the dilation of the suspect’s pupils, blood pressure, internal clock, etc…) This training allows Mr. Brock to not only assess whether an arrest has been done properly for alcohol impairment but also allows him to refute officer’s from making claims that they suspected there may have been drugs involved as well. Mr. Brock is an Ambassador for the DUI Defense Lawyer’s Association, member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys and the Chattanooga Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys.
