Smart Start was one of 500 attendees who were at the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) conference to learn more about the criminal justice system and how members of the industry can advance their mission of ensuring due process for individuals accused of crime.
Smart Start supports NACDL in its mission to preserve fairness in the American criminal justice system. One presentation during NACDL’s conference featured SmartMobile™, Smart Start’s portable alcohol monitoring device.

Attorney William Kirk was the presenter, who serves as Assistant Dean on the Board of Regents for the National College for DUI Defense, as well as other organizations and state bar associations.
At the NACDL conference, Kirk tested himself with various alcohol monitoring tools, such as:
- Ignition Interlock Devices
- EtG (urinalysis)
- Transdermal devices
- Portable devices
When speaking on portable devices, Kirk highlighted SmartMobile’s various features and how it can benefit individuals who need to use the device through a court order. He says that “[portable] monitoring is the next generation. And experience … shows me that these devices are well worth the investment when compared with more traditional … devices.”
SmartMobile is a handheld unit that can detect someone’s breath alcohol concentration (BrAC) by the user blowing into the mouthpiece.
Because of its immediate violation notifications, as well as being easy to use for clients, Kirk praised SmartMobile as an effective alcohol monitoring tool. One highlight of SmartMobile that he mentions is its customized testing times. This feature is advantageous as it can prevent any disturbance with a client’s day-to-day routine. However, SmartMobile can be set to include random testing if necessary.
As a lawyer, Kirk suggests SmartMobile to the judge as a device his clients can use to confirm their recovery from alcohol. SmartMobile has also been proven to be court-admissible based on a published probation hearing.
