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.”

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!!

Attorney Don Waggoner got my husband reinstated his probation for violating with a dirty urine. The state was trying to sentence him to 14 months in Florida state prison because of his high score sheet. He fought for him in court and did an amazing job. Also he was the most reasonable and honest out of all the lawyers I've talked to. Hire him he's good.

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.
