Strong Criminal Defense Forged By
Over 20 Years Of Experience

Steven H. Wetter

  • Attorney






I have been in Southwest Florida since 1985. I am a former Assistant State's Attorney that achieved the rank of chief homicide arson prosecutor. As a prosecutor, I successfully prosecuted thousands of cases. I have been the supervising attorney on many DEA task force drug trafficking investigations. I was lead attorney in hundreds of complex wiretap and racketeering investigations supervising law enforcement's compliance with capture and minimization of targeted conversations. I worked closely with DEA task force officers in writing search warrant affidavits and their subsequent execution. As a prosecutor, I have worked with both the FBI and the Secret Service.

I received specialized training in crime scene investigations and the introduction of evidence at trial. My trial experience is extensive. I have been the lead trial attorney in over 100 criminal jury trials. Those include homicide, manslaughter, sexual battery, racketeering, conspiracy, firearms, drug trafficking, drug sales and possessions, counterfeiting, theft and DUI. I am admitted to practice in all Florida State courts. I am also admitted to the U.S. Federal Court in the middle district of Florida, Washington D.C and Washington State.
