Andrew Parks began his career as a prosecutor for the Broward County State
Attorney's Office. After leaving the State Attorney's Office,
he worked for, and eventually became the youngest lawyer to become partner
at the law firm of Essen & Essen et al, which focused on defending
those charged with DUI and criminal offenses.
As a former prosecutor, Mr. Parks is able to draw from insight into the
"other side" when defending clients specifically charged with
any type of criminal offense including DUI, misdemeanors, traffic offenses,
and all types of felonies.
His ability to challenge the prosecution's case and create customized
defense strategies consistently produces successful results for the firm's
clients. Over the years, he has tried more than 150 dui cases, has argued
countless pre-trial motions, and has won numerous driver's license hearings.
As a result of his success as a criminal and DUI defense lawyer, Mr. Parks
has been invited to speak at seminars around the state where he has lectured
hundreds of attorneys on topics including defending a drunk driving case,
dismantling the State's DUI and criminal case, and the art of winning
a DUI and criminal case with motion practice.
Mr. Parks was recruited by West Publishing and is now recognized as a nationally
published author. He has written articles on such topics as how to beat
the breath test as well as how to use police misconduct to dismiss a case.
He has also written articles and lectured on unlawful police search and seizures.
Mr. Parks has handled thousands of DUI and criminal cases throughout the
state of Florida in his career spanning over 20 years. He continues to
apply his skills to the defense of those charged with all criminal offenses.
