NCDD Board Certification

Attorneys who are Board Certified by the NCDD can demonstrate that they have a substantive understanding of DUI laws, evidentiary issues, and effective methods of defense. To become Board Certified, a lawyer must pass written and oral examinations that reflect the knowledge and skills needed for an enhanced level of advocacy in the field of DUI defense.

New Rules Explanation for NCDD Board Certification

In 2020, the American Bar Association approved NCDD's request to reduce the Experience Requirements specified in Certification Rule 2.1.1. First, the “look-back” period has been extended from three years to five years immediately preceding the application. Second, alternatives for the requisite number of trials are now available as fully detailed in Certification Rule 2.1.1.

The following short videos provide a further explanation of these changes.
