Denver, United States - October 13, 2017 /PressCable/ —

Matthew J. Greife, a Denver Defense Attorney, uses his PhD and experience in conducting original research to challenge, and educate, prosecutors and judges in DUI court cases.

Matthew J. Greife is a Denver and Fort Collins area defense attorney who specializes in using his background and extensive scientific knowledge to successfully defend individuals and small businesses who find themselves facing criminal or civil prosecution. Mr. Greife is also an instructor in the Sociology Department at Colorado State University where he teaches courses on crime, law and deviance.

Mr. Greife challenges the underlying science of breath tests and roadside examinations in DUI cases. For example, the Colorado Validation Study conducted in 1995 was supposed to provide true empirical support for DUI roadside examinations, however Mr. Greife disagrees it delivered its purpose. He believes the Colorado Validation Study is invalid because it violates every principle of scientific inquiry scientists are supposed to follow when they engage in research studies.

Mr. Greife shows judges and prosecutors that the validation study was conducted over a 5 month period, excluding winter, which means officers may arrest people for DUIs because they are cold rather than intoxicated, and he believes a proper study should have observed DUI arrests over a much longer period of time and in a multitude of weather conditions. Mr. Greife also points out that the study observers were mostly fellow police officers that indicate there is no attempt to eliminate bias from data collection and the results, therefore, cannot be trusted.

Mr. Greife points out that these are only two of the many issues with the Colorado Validation Study and in his opinion, explain why police officers have arrest error rates in DUI investigations as high as 28%.

Gov't shutdown deadline nears; Trump says 'not looking good'

Jan 20, 2018

WASHINGTON — The government careened toward shutdown Friday night in a chaotic close to Donald Trump's first year as president, as Democrats and Republicans preemptively traded blame while still struggling to find some accord before a deadline at the stroke of midnight. The lawmakers and Trump's White House mounted last-ditch negotiations to stave off what had come to appear as the inevitable, with the parties in stare-down mode over federal spending and proposals to protect some 700,000 younger immigrants from deportation. After hours of negotiating, the Senate scheduled a late-night vote on a House-passed plan. "Not looking good," Trump tweeted...

The Latest: Budget deal 'Not looking good,' Trump tweets

Jan 20, 2018

WASHINGTON — The Latest on the budget battle in Congress (all times local): 9:30 p.m. President Donald Trump says efforts to avert a government shutdown are "Not looking good." Trump says in a tweet late Friday evening that it's "Not looking good for our great Military or Safety & Security on the very dangerous Southern Border."

Lawmakers are trying to hash out a deal to keep the federal...

The Latest: Cell carriers may omit phones from alert system

Jan 20, 2018

HONOLULU — The Latest on the mistaken missile alert in Hawaii (all times local): 1:15 p.m. Not all cellphones in Hawaii received last weekend's false alarm missile alert. A Federal Communications Commission official told lawmakers at the Hawaii State Legislature on Friday that may have happened in part because cellphone carriers may choose not to participate in the nation's Wireless Emergency Alert system. FCC attorney and adviser James Wiley says some carriers may also offer the service only to some geographic areas and only to some mobile devices. He says some cellphones may not be capable of receiving the alerts...

Bad timing: Shutdown threat shadows Trump 1-year festivities

Jan 20, 2018

WASHINGTON — Talk about lousy timing. President Donald Trump had hoped to spend the weekend celebrating the one-year anniversary of his inauguration. Now, he's facing a potential government shutdown. Trump scrapped plans to depart Friday for his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida, where he was to attend a high-dollar fundraiser Saturday night. Instead, he spent the afternoon in the Oval Office, trying to stave off the shutdown. By late afternoon, it remained unclear whether a deal would be reached, and by Friday evening, Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told reporters he didn't expect Trump to make the trip Saturday. "No, I don't,"...

Analysis: Emboldened Democrats take page from the hard right

Jan 20, 2018

WASHINGTON — Congressional Democrats are taking a page from the playbook of President Donald Trump and hard-line conservatives: Fight for your base and don't blink. In forcing a showdown over immigration — and risking a government shutdown — Democrats have embraced a confrontational, rule-breaking strategy they once blasted as irresponsible when practiced by the other party. But the Trump-era appears to come with new rules for both sides. Rather than playing it safe in an election year, Democrats are calculating the bigger risk would be missing the moment to challenge a deeply unpopular president and deflating the energy that could...
