Rob is highly experienced in the prosecution and defense of DUI (often called DWI or Drunk Driving). He began prosecuting DUI cases in 1986. Over the next six years he prosecuted literally hundreds of these cases. He then moved to the defense side where he worked as a public defender in Chittenden County, Vermont. In eleven years he defended many hundreds of individuals charged with this crime. Now that he works in the private sector, Rob continues to maintain an active practice in the area of criminal law, including DUIÍs. Rob brings his many years of successful experience to serving your needs with skill and expertise.

In additions to DUIÍs Rob has prosecuted and defended virtually every crime that is on the books in Vermont, including Domestic Assault, Grand Larceny, Murder, Aggravated Assault, Fraud, Welfare Fraud, Bad Checks, all driving related charges, and lesser offenses such as traffic tickets.
