Mr. Wolf began his career as an Assistant State Attorney in Miami. He co-founded the State Attorney’s Gang Prosecution Unit, wrote what is believed to have been the first warrant in Florida authorizing a search for gang evidence, and obtained what is believed to have been the first formal ruling in Florida admitting gang evidence at trial. He was a member of Florida’s Statewide Terrorist Intelligence Network Group and, following the 9/11 attacks, was involved in standing up the Regional Domestic Security Task Force and its Investigations and Intelligence Subcommittee.
Mr. Wolf was later recruited by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration as a Special Agent and spent the next several years investigating international drug trafficking organizations. From 2003 to 2006, he was the case agent for DEA’s international investigation of a Consolidated Priority Organization Target for which he received the DEA Administrator’s Award, the U.S. Attorney’s Outstanding Law Enforcement Officer of the Year Award, the DEA Exceptional Performance Award, and the International Narcotic Enforcement Officers’ Association’s International Award of Honor.
In 2006, he joined Ferrell Law, P.A. as a partner in the firm’s trial and appellate practice, and developed a crisis management practice handling cases throughout the United States.
In 2009, he founded Wolf, P.A. and Group One Consulting, which evolved to create Wolf Global.
