Listen to attorney Steven R. Adams on The Bill Cunningham Show discussing his course with Empower U.
According to Helen Russo, the Empower U organization provides free courses to local residents on a wide range of topics. The three prongs of the organization are to educate, enjoy, and engage.
Ohio DUI and criminal defense attorney Steven R. Adams will be teaching a course in Spring 2015 called “Flashing Lights in Your Rearview Mirror” with Captain Russ Neville, Special Services Section of the Cincinnati Police Dept. This course will give vital information about the appropriate way to deal with police encounters.
Some of the topics covered will include what to do during a traffic stop, what to expect when an officer knocks on your door, and what your rights are when you encounter police on the street. In most circumstances, the answer is to be polite—but ask for your attorney. You can still get arrested based on the officer’s observations, but an experienced attorney can help you build a defense against the charges.
With this course, Steven, Russ, and Empower U hope to educate citizens of all ages about their legal responsibilities and the consequences of breaking the law. Whether you’re interested in DUI law, texting and driving law, or some other aspect of the Ohio court system, this course is one you can’t miss.
