Get to know Missouri’s DWI judges at this year’s seminar

Missouri DWI lawyers are gearing up for the Annual Bernard Edelman DWI Law & Science Seminar which takes place this year July 27-28 at The Lodge of Four Seasons in Lake Ozark.

Presented by MoBarCLE and the Missouri Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the Annual Bernard Edelman DWI Law & Science Seminar provides lawyers with the opportunity to learn from national experts and even better understand the science behind the practice of DWI law.

On Thursday, get to know DWI judges from the judge’s panel session prior to the networking reception with Hon. John F. Newsham, Associate Circuit Court, 21st Judicial Circuit, St. Louis; Hon. Stanley D. Williams, Associate Circuit Court, 20th Judicial Circuit, Eureka; Hon. Martina L. Peterson, Municipal Court, 16th Judicial Circuit, Kansas City; Hon. Gary D.
