FORMER PROSECUTOR with over 20 plus years of experience. When he was a prosecutor, Luigi was assigned to a specialized bureau in the District Attorney’s Office that exclusively prosecuted Driving While Intoxicated by alcohol and Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI) by Drugs. This was an elite unit that you had to be asked to join based on merit and was comprised of the most experienced trial lawyers in the District Attorney’s Office. While in that unit, Luigi SUCCESSFULLY tried several DWI/DWAI by Drug jury trials with a 100% conviction rate and litigated many pretrial suppression hearings on a wide variety of constitutional issues where the suppression of evidence was at stake.
As a result of his accomplishments in that bureau, Luigi was promoted to the Felony Trial Bureau in the District Attorney’s Office where he handled complex Felony DWI/DWAI by Drug cases including those involving serious physical injury and death. Unlike many lawyers, Luigi has a unique knowledge of the science of DWI/DWAI by Drug cases. He also has extensive knowledge of how the police conduct these investigations including the administration of Standardized Field Sobriety Tests and is intimately familiar with the strategies to attack the government’s case.
Clients should feel confident that while plea bargaining of a case is always the first strategy to resolve a matter, if clients wish to fight their cases by not pleading guilty, Luigi has the ability, expertise and experience of litigating DWI/DWAI by Drugs with a high rate of success.
