Seminars

Mimi’s energy, distinguished speaking ability, and natural knack for diplomacy make her not only an excellent attorney, but a leader in the field of DWI as well. This is a result of her passion and concern for the unscientific and unconstitutional injustice of DWI. She is committed to expanding the knowledge of her peers, as she tirelessly endeavors to diminish the stigma of a DWI charge. Below is a list of some of the seminars in which Mimi will appear, and has previously appeared:
