About Richard

Learn Richard’s areas of practice.

          If you want experience on your side for your DWI, I am your choice.  As a Police Officer/Sheriff's Deputy for fourteen years, I enforced DWI/DUI laws as well as traffic laws.  

           The truth of the matter is that I know more about what police officers should be doing than most police officers.  If you have been arrested for DWI, call me and I can help.

          Specifically, I was trained in the following areas: DWI/DUI Enforcement Officer as well as a Drug Recognition Expert Practitioner/Instructor (DRE) which consists of drug (legal and illegal) impaired driving detection and enforcement; Standardized Field Sobriety Testing Practitioner/Instructor, which are the tests that police officers give you when you are under the suspicion of DWI; Motor Vehicle, Commercial Motor Vehicle, and Motorcycle Accident Reconstruction Practitioner, which consisted of the investigation and reconstruction of serious and fatal traffic crashes; Sobriety Checkpoint Supervisor, which meant that I conducted and supervised Sobriety Checkpoints; and Field Training Officer, which means that I trained new police officers on proper policy and procedure, to include DWI detection and enforcement.
