The Psychology of a DUI Summation

What are some things defense counsel can do to deliver a solid and convincing summation in a DUI trial? Edward Fiandach recommends the use of “Devil Words” (such as contaminated) that have the power to curse the prosecution’s case. To accomplish their aim, Devil Words must not only raise a negative aspect of the prosecution’s case during trial, but they also must be used in summation to recall that negative aspect. Fiandach provides a list of Devil Words and their possible uses to employ in summation to help jurors remember important questions, lines, and demonstrations.
