Jonathan William McConnell, Premier DUI Attorney, Advanced Level Training on Attacking DUI Reports & Videos
Jonathan William McConnell recently received advanced level training, from the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys, on attacking DUI reports and videos in DUI cases. To effectively attack DUI reports and videos, it is critical to know and use the officer’s NHTSA Manuals against him. Even the most experienced officers miss important steps and make mistakes in DUI investigations, which can result in people being wrongfully arrested for DUI. Some key areas to focus attention on are: discrepancies between the police report and the video, officers who ignore/downplay/neglect injuries and medical conditions, the officer’s instructions and demonstrations of the field sobriety tests, an officer’s use of trick questions, improper classification of clues, copy and pasting errors, misused keywords, and poor quality reports when a video is present. This training was provided by Peter Krantz, a former law enforcement officer who was a Drug Recognition Expert and a Standardized Field Sobriety Testing Instructor. Peter has transitioned out of law enforcement and is now in law school to become an attorney who will defend people who are arrested for DUI.
The American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys has compiled information from Judges, Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutors (the Top DUI Prosecutors in each State), DUI Prosecutors, current Law Enforcement Officers, former Law Enforcement Officers, and DUI Defense Attorneys to determine exactly what skills, knowledge, training, tools, resources, and strategies win the most DUI cases at trial and are also used to get DUI cases successfully resolved for the defense prior to trial.
When people need a DUI Attorney, the biggest challenge is knowing whether or not an attorney truly has the skills, knowledge, training, tools, resources, and strategies that are needed to successfully resolve and win DUI cases. Countless attorneys handle DUI cases. But, only a very small percentage have the skills, knowledge, training, tools, resources, and strategies that are needed to successfully resolve and win DUI cases.
Members of the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys have received advanced level training on the strategies that win the most DUI cases at trial and are also used to get DUI cases successfully resolved for the defense prior to trial. Members of the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys also have access to the resources and tools that are used to win and successfully resolve DUI cases and these are resources and tools that only a very small percentage of DUI attorneys have access to and use.
Jonathan W. McConnell, the founding criminal defense attorney at the McConnell Law Firm, specializes in criminal defense, including Driving Under the Influence (DUI), false sexual accusations, white collar crime and appeals. He is also highly experienced in traffic law and civil litigation.
As a noted criminal defense attorney and the leader of our firm, Jon is known for his expert knowledge and unmatched tenacity. He describes his technique as aggressive and “outside the box,” utilizing a fresh and modern approach. Both the public and his peers have taken notice, consistently rating him at the top of the profession with the most prestigious legal directories: Avvo, The National Trial Lawyers, Super Lawyers and Martindale-Hubbell.
Jon was drawn to the legal profession out of a desire to help people. The Wichita native earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in criminal justice from Wichita State University, then attended law school in Miami, Florida. After his education, he gained experience as a Law Clerk for a judge in Broward County, Florida, as an Assistant District Attorney of Sedgwick County, Kansas, and then at a criminal defense law firm.
Jon founded his own namesake law firm in 2014, and the practice was rebranded in 2017 as the McConnell Law Firm. He feels that there is great honor in the work we do, especially in helping those who are in trouble or who have made a mistake, which is why he fights tirelessly to represent each of his clients— leaving no stone unturned in the process.
Jon is passionate about making a difference through volunteerism and monetary support. He has been actively involved with the Midwest Innocence Project, which is dedicated to the investigation, litigation and exoneration of the wrongfully convicted. We have recently provided support to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), The Kansas African American Museum, the Wichita Wagonmasters Good Life Grants and, in honor of Jon’s late mother, the Wichita Cancer Foundation and The University of Kansas Cancer Center.
