Biography

BOARD CERTIFIED DUI DEFENSE EXPERT!

I am one of only three Board Certified DUI Defense Experts in Florida and the only one with offices in Orlando, Gainesville, Tavares, West Palm and Tampa.  I am Board certified as a DUI Defense specialist by the National College for DUI Defense, which is the only organization accredited to award Board Certification in DUI Defense by the American Bar Association.  I have authored or co-authored 8 books on DUI Defense, including manuals used to train other lawyers how to defend clients accused of DUI.  Further, I speak both locally and nationally at continuing legal education seminars designed to teach other lawyers the art of DUI Defense.

Prior to becoming a DUI Defense attorney, I was the lead DUI prosecutor in the Seminole County State Attorneys office.  During my time as the Lead DUI Prosecutor, I received personal training from the president of CMI, Inc., the manufacturer of the Intoxilyzer 8000, which is the only breath test instrument in use for evidentary purposes in Florida.  I know of no other DUI Defense Attorney who has had this unique training and experience.

Call today so we can discuss how my experience and expertise can be put to work to your benefit.  The Florida Bar does not currently recognize DUI as a specialized area of law, therefore I am not certified as a specialist by the Florida Bar.
