  • Carlos A. Canet
    Carlos A. Canet has been a member of the Florida Bar since 1983. He began his legal career at the office of the Public Defender in Miami under the tutelage of Bennett H. Brummer. In 1989, he entered private practice and in 1990 joined the law firm of Essen & Essen. Carlos remained at the Essen firm until opening his present office in 2006. His practice has been almost exclusively the defense of DUI cases. Carlos has been responsible for some locally significant rulings and opinions. In 1995, his motion excluding all field sobriety exercises in Broward County led to the opinion in State v. Meador. In 2005, his motion to exclude breath test results based upon the use of tap water to check Intoxilyzer calibration led to the decision in State v. Cubic. More recently, motions to suppress breath test results in Broward have led to several county court orders suppressing test results in hundreds of cases based upon questionable inspection techniques and practices. Currently, he maintains his office in Fort Lauderdale where he is working on a book for James Publishing titled, “Pattern DUI Defenses.”
