"Felony DUI defense requires extensive courtroom experience. We are
not a DUI mill. We thoroughly investigate the evidence and aggressively
prepare your case to win in court. When the prosecutor sees we are serious
about winning, he or she is often willing to find a settlement that works
for everyone." — Attorney Robert Wilson
