Douglas Lowell Wilder

About me

I began my legal career as a prosecutor, which I did from 1995-2000.  I prosecuted thousands of DWI's as a prosecutor and taught police officers how to be more effectivce.  I took all my skill and knowledge and have applied it to defending people, many of whom are wrongly accused.  I am a Field Sobriety Test Instructor and have taught the Student Field Sobriety Test Course around the country.  I have been asked to teach police officers too. Let my dedication and experience fight for you.
