Bryan has been able to obtain dismissals on DWI cases with breath and blood alcohol evidence, even in cases with alleged high alcohol readings. With his experience and training, Bryan has successfully suppressed Blood and Breath Test evidence on multiple occasions. His legal education has also allowed him to become very familiar with the practices of forensic chromatography and blood alcohol analysis that is being used more and more in the DWI field, including hands on training with the Perkin Elmer Claris 500 Gas Chromatograph machine.
