ATTORNEY ADAM D. STOLTE RECEIVED NATIONAL AWARD
Attorney Adam Stolte received the prestigious National College for DUI Defense award for Appellate Advocacy for his work in State v. Stanley. The case prevents the government from increasing the sentence for DUI by removing some prior DUI's from consideration. In many instances, the case reduces fines or jail time and has reduced felony convictions to misdemeanors.
The Appellate Advocacy Award award goes to the NCDD member who has most personified the mission of the National College through a creative, thoughtful, intellectual and ethical appellate practice dedicated to preserving the rights of the accused, with an emphasis in driving related cases. This individual has set themselves apart in the local legal community as a premier appellate attorney, whose knowledge of the law and ability to articulate it in writing and word, are matched by few others. This individual may have led and/or participated in a major appellate project which significantly preserved the rights of those accused of impaired driving in their state, via amicus or on the national level.
