In his time, Wise has gone before over a hundred jury trials, allowing him to have had the chance to walk through a variety of different criminal situations.

Now, as a criminal defense attorney, his firm handles a wide variety of cases, such as: drug crimes, domestic violence, financial crimes, sex crimes, weapons charges, DUI charges, appeals and many more.

Today, DUI arrests are becoming more and more common because not just individual states, but the entire country as a whole, is trying to crack down on those who drink and drive.
