About me

Prior to entering priviate practice in 2012 I was an Assistant Public Defender (APD) for almost six years.  I began my carrer as an APD in Indian River County and after a year moved home to become an APD in Brevard County.  I was, and always have been, dedicated to helping those accused of criminal offenses.  During all but five months of my time as an APD I was in the felony division handeling everything from murder cases, captial sexual battery, trafficing in illegal substances, gun crimes, and a whole range of other serious felony cases.  I have handled numerous Habitual Felony Offender (HFO), Habitual Violent Felony Offender (HVFO), and Prision Releasee Reoffender (PRR) cases.  Additionally, I have tried over twenty-five cases and handeld thousands upon thousands of cases during my career.  Since my move to private practice and the formation of Wagner & Wagner, P.A., things haven't slowed down much.  In fact now in addition to criminal cases I now practice in the area of family law.  Even though we stay busy, I find that in private practice I am able to have fewer clients and devote more of my time and attention to each of them.  I find that this creates a more effective and meaningful relationship with those I represent.
