National College for DUI Defense Faculty
The National College for DUI Defense (NCDD) was established in 1995 and "dedicated to the improvement of the criminal defense bar, and to the dissemination of information to the public about DUI Defense Law as a specialty area of law practice." Both Chuck and Dan are members, and Chuck is an actual faculty member -- asked to teach other DWI attorneys across the nation, largely due to his unique knowledge of the intricacies of breath testing.

For years, Chuck and Dan have been contributing as authors to Minnesota's #1 resource for all things DWI-related: The Minnesota DWI Deskbook.

American Chemical Society (ACS-CHAL)
Like "poet-warrior" or "philosopher-king", the Chemistry and the Law Division of the American Chemical Society (an organization chartered by Congress with more than 161,000 members) developed the "ACS-CHAL Forensic Lawyer-Scientist Designation" to recognize attorneys that "use validated and legitimate science for the benefit of justice" and "expose invalid or non-validated science and use valid science in the courtroom." Chuck is the only attorney in Minnesota to have attained this designation.
Minnesota CLE Criminal Justice Institute
Chuck and Dan are regularly asked to be presenters at "continuing learning education" seminars (CLE's), which are classes geared towards keeping other attorneys up-to-date with the latest developments in the law.

Since 2014, Chuck and Dan have presented breakout sessions (and other, more targeted sessions).
Innocence Project of Minnesota Metrology Seminar
In 2016, the Innocence Project of Minnesota caught wind of Chuck and Dan's efforts to force the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension to adopt and apply basic scientific principles towards DWI blood, breath, and urine tests. They were invited to speak at a seminar geared towards educating the public and other defense attorneys regarding the necessary tools to ensure that the innocent are not wrongfully convicted, whether they are facing a murder charge or are involved in a DWI case.
Minnesota State Bar Association - Criminal Law Section
Founded in 1883, the Minnesota State Bar Association (MSBA) is the oldest professional association for attorneys in Minnesota.
