Rhode Island DUI Attorney with ExperienceI am a former Rhode Island Special Assistant Attorney General from 1993-1997. During those years I prosecuted hundreds of cases ranging from driving under the influence and disorderly conduct all the way to first degree murder in every Rhode Island County. Additionally, along with other prosecutors, I lectured in-coming police academy cadets on proper drunk driving and Rhode Island DUI investigations and prosecutions. This unique experience has allowed me a wealth of knowledge not readily available to average Rhode Island DUI lawyers or Rhode Island criminal defense attorneys. Since 1997 I have been applying all that I learned as a prosecutor in order to better benefit my private clients as a defense lawyer. Most importantly, when you hire my firm to represent you, I will personally oversee you case and often times am the attorney at your side when it comes time for court. I strongly believe that each client deserves this personal service. My office provides free consultations, and I am available 24 hours a day for emergencies. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
