About Elliott Wilcox

Dedicated 100% to DUI Defense, the Wilcox Law Firm specializes in defending drivers who have been accused of driving under the influence. One of only 2 firms in the entire state that owns a functioning Intoxilyzer 8000, we are committed to protecting drivers accused of DUI.

Using our gigantic (4,500,000+ data records) "nerd database," we keep track of EVERY breath test administered in the entire state, and can sort through the data based on the Intoxilyzer unit, the arresting officer, or the date of offense. Using this "big data" approach to handle your case, we can show the inconsistencies and the inaccuracies in the breath test devices to help put you in the best possible position to avoid a DUI conviction.

Every case is unique, but after handling 1000's of these cases, we've spotted the trends and the consistent problems with the DUI prosecutions that can hopefully put you in a position to avoid a DUI.

Elliott's Not Just a Former DUI Prosecutor…
He’s the One Who TRAINED the DUI Prosecutors!

Lots of DUI attorneys talk about being “former prosecutors.” But Elliott brings a unique insight into defending your Tampa DUI, because he isn’t just a former prosecutor… He’s the one who trained the prosecutors (and the police!) how to handle DUI cases.

Elliott was one of the first two Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutors for the entire state of Florida, and was responsible for handling the DUI training of prosecutors and law enforcement officers around the entire state. Elliott can anticipate how your police officer and prosecutor are going to strategize their case for court, because not only did he train many of them, he created the training materials and videos that they still rely upon today!

Now, you can take advantage of the unique insider’s knowledge that Elliott brings to the courtroom to protect your rights and defend your Tampa DUI case. Elliott dedicates 100% of his courtroom practice to defending drivers like you who have been accused of a Tampa DUI, and isn’t afraid to fight your case all the way to a winning verdict.
