He began his career in science and medicine in 1974 working as a research technician in the Department of Anatomy at the University of Miami School of Medicine. There he prepared anatomic remains for the anatomy class and cell biology teaching materials for the medical students.

From 1976-1978, Dr. Rose worked in the Department of Pharmacology at the same medical school running an over-the-counter drug efficacy trial and performing bench research on drug transport across cell membranes by UV-VIS Spectrophotometry.

From 1978 to 1981 he attended Florida Atlantic University (FAU) and earned his BA degree in Biology followed by earning his Medical Doctor degree from the University of Miami in 1985.

Subsequent to medical school, Dr. Rose trained in Clinical Pathology for two years at the University of Alabama, Birmingham. At UAB he was in charge of the emergency toxicology testing for ethanol by serum enzyme assay testing, and other intoxicating substances, when performing his on-call duties.

From 1989 to 1991 Dr. Rose trained in the formal Forensic Toxicology training program at the Dade County Medical Examiner Department in Miami, Florida.

Welcome to my website.

This website is a private website for the practicing criminal defense attorney. DUI cases constitute the primary focus of the information contained in the website but any criminal case involving alcohol, drugs, Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFST’S), closed head trauma or any other neuro-psychiatric issue may be addressed.

Contained within the website is a collection of my intellectual property of PowerPoint slides, custom animations, recorded presentations, and answers to relevant technical questions and is available for each attorney to learn from and to add to their own knowledge base, and for use as demonstrative aids in any case we are working on together.

This website requires registration by the criminal defense attorney and an understanding and agreement to follow the website conditions.

The conditions for registration and membership are simple.

  2. You are a current practicing criminal defense attorney in good standing with your state bar association.
  3. An invitation from me to join.

  6. I may terminate anyone’s membership at any time for any reason.
  7. The Question & Answer Forum (Q&A Forum) is not a discussion board, it is designed to answer a specific question about a given issue in a criminal case. Your question should contain enough information for me to consider the issue and respond with an appropriate answer, and references if necessary. Many responses require considerable thought and research. Often they are repetitive, so a simple search of the Q&A Forum may reveal the same question already answered. Searching the Q&A Forum before asking a question is therefore encouraged.
  8. Anything I share or suggest is based on hypotheticals or assumed facts supplied to me by the person asking the questions, and no one may rely on them for the purposes of imposing liability or of seeking damages.
