About Jason Burkhead

After spending 20 years in the USAF as a military police officer I was disappointed with the quality of police work I saw from other officers. There were too many mistakes made that compromised the rights of the suspect and the officers simply wrote around them in their report. That re-inspired me to go to law school so I could defend the rights of others. After lengthy experience in both criminal law and civil litigation, I committed myself to criminal defense. Thus, Burkhead Criminal Defense was born. My goal is to provide quality, affordable criminal defense representation. My background gives me extensive experience in evaluating police reports and evidence. I have been certified on most of the same tools and techniques used by local law enforcement including, portable alcohol systems, intoxilyzer, and National Field Sobriety Tests among others. As a former criminal investigator and major collision investigator I have the knowledge and eye for detail to find flaws in the police reports the prosecutors use to charge defendants.

Use those same materials to deconstruct and destroy the prosecution. A lot of materials go into a DRE case; your mastery of those materials will go a...
