"Mr.Inniss explained everything for me, walking me through the process of what I was facing DWI with jail time and bringing it down to DUAI no jail time. Anytime I needed his assistance he was no more than a phone call or text away. I felt like I was in great hands and I was. Thank you Mr. Inniss"

“Randall and I worked together over several days on a project concerning drug recognition experts. He is a dedicated and super knowledgeable, well-trained criminal defense and DWI/DUI attorney. He goes above and beyond to prepare to defend his clients. He is well experienced, and has a background in law enforcement. He's also quite personable and relatable. I highly endorse Randy.”

- Stephanie Beard, Criminal defense Attorney


“Randall is a dynamic speaker and a great lawyer. He understands how to attack a DUI case, having been a former police officer and having taken many advanced courses for criminal defense lawyers. Part of winning a DUI case is having a lawyer the jury will relate to, I think hiring Randall is the right choice.”

- Michael DelSignore, DUI and DWI Attorney


“I strongly endorse Randy Inniss. Randy and I attended a NHTSA DUI Detection and Standardized Field Sobriety Instructor Course and Drug Recognition Overview Course together. Randy's extensive knowledge of DUI cases is extremely impressive. His lengthy career as a law enforcement officer gives him a tremendous advantage when representing clients accused of impaired driving. I am confident that Randy will provide great results to individuals facing DUI/DWI charges.”

You Need An Attorney That Listens To You And Understands Your Needs

As a former State Trooper with over 22 years of investigative experience with DWI’s, Misdemeanors, and Felonies, I use my insight and experience in developing cases to examine your charge from a dual perspective: 1) from the lens of a former Investigator and police officer who previously cultivated and developed cases and, 2) using my training and experience as an admitted attorney for over 16 years and criminal defense practitioner to dissect the case against you.

As a former Certified Breathalyzer Operator who has personally made or participated in over one hundred DWI arrests, I use this insight and experience to help navigate your case to a successful conclusion. Not many criminal defense attorneys were State Police and only a fraction were Certified Breathalyzer Operators who have actually made DWI arrests. This is insight and experience that is almost unique among the criminal defense bar.

As a former narcotics unit supervisor, I know that more often there are facts that occurred at the scene and during the course of a case that are beneficial, indeed helpful, to the defense. Almost instinctively such facts are NOT included into the somewhat sanitized and prosecution-weighted- or leaning police reports. Former prosecutors turned defense counsel often examine the case starting with the details provided in the police report.

From my background working the streets as an officer and supervising seasoned Investigators, I know from experience there is often much more that occurred — some helpful to your case and defense — than the police report reflects. That omitted information can be extremely beneficial to YOUR defense.
