Wayne Rodgers Foote



Wayne Rodgers Foote is an attorney myself, I have had the opportunity to see many trial attorneys at work. Wayne is a brilliant defense attorney. I retained him to represent a younger family member and, from the outset, he was able to answer all questions in a way that was clear and understandable. His depth of knowledge in OUI defense is unparalleled. He researched and advised courses of action that allowed the family member to complete his college degree while awaiting trial and before facing the possibility of license loss (which could have delayed his graduation since he could not get back and forth to school).

Wayne seems to truly enjoy what he does and works tirelessly to prepare each case, leaving no stone unturned. Through diligent work and research, he came up with a plan that would have allowed the family member to take a plea which would have been very favorable. Still, the family member wanted to go to trial. Wayne just smiled and said, “Let’s go. That’s what I do; I am a trial attorney.” And what a trial attorney he is! His knowledge of the field sobriety tests and procedure is incredible. He was able to show, in each and every field sobriety test that was shown on the police video, how the directions given were not according to the manual, were confusing or were just plain wrong. His cross-examination was a lesson for everyone in the courtroom, particularly the prosecution and every police officer in attendance that day. Through the course of the day, waiting for the trial to begin, I noticed that on numerous occasions, other attorneys approached Wayne to ask his advice.

During trial, Wayne was masterful. He was extremely prepared and knew the case and the police video inside and out. Despite the many errors made by the police and prosecution, Wayne was respectful and courteous, even in cross-examination, while still clearly pointing out the errors to the judge, in a professional way that did not belittle or disrespect the other side.

He works hard and earns every penny of the fee he charges. His research of the case and knowledge of his area of the law is incomparable. Win or lose, I would have had nothing but good to say about Wayne and am forever grateful to him for his diligence and hard-work. (Defendant was found not guilty, after a full trial).

If you have the misfortune to be defending an DUI charge, Wayne Foote is the person to see. [Client Review]
