This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
An admonition means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar gives the lawyer an admonition in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Don’s comment: “This disciplinary action was for an advertisement that did not meet the strict standards of the Florida Bar Association. The advertisement was immediately corrected. My work in the courtroom as a criminal defense attorney has never been questioned.”

I just wanted to take a moment to share my experience with Don Waggoner Law and his Assistant, Patricia. Far too often, people are eager to write letters or make a phone call to complain, but I wanted to take the time to express how very pleased I am with the performance, support, professionalism, and determination of this legal team. Throughout my case everyone was always quick to respond, available during times that most would consider after hours, and always patient in explaining the status and details/developments of my case.
Thanks to Don Waggoner Law I am able to look towards a brighter future…

Although Mr. Waggoner is not licensed in my state, he went over and above to help my situation. He was informative, quick to answer my questions and referred me to an attorney licensed in my state. Out of 5 attorneys I contacted, he was the only one who took the time to give me answers. If I could give him 10 stars, I would!!

I endorse Don Waggoner. I would not hesitate to hire Don Waggoner if someone in my family were to get into trouble. He is very dedicated to justice and I always refer to him as one of the best criminal defense lawyers in Central Florida.
