Lots of DUI attorneys talk about being “former prosecutors.” But Elliott brings a unique insight into defending your Tampa DUI, because he isn’t just a former prosecutor… He’s the one who trained the prosecutors (and the police!) how to handle DUI cases.

For more than a decade, Elliott was a featured speaker at every DUI Trial Advocacy School, which is Florida’s premier training program for prosecutor DUI training, and was awarded the Florida Prosecuting Attorney Association’s “Distinguished Faculty” award.

Elliott was one of the first two Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutors for the entire state of Florida, and was responsible for handling the DUI training of prosecutors and law enforcement officers around the entire state. Elliott can anticipate how your police officer and prosecutor are going to strategize their case for court, because not only did he train many of them, he created the training materials and videos that they still rely upon today!

Now, you can take advantage of  the unique insider’s knowledge that Elliott brings to the courtroom to protect your rights and defend your Tampa DUI case. Elliott dedicates 100% of his courtroom practice to defending drivers like you who have been accused of a Tampa DUI, and isn’t afraid to fight your case all the way to a winning verdict.
