Mr. Wolf was later recruited as a Special Agent by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration and spent the next several years investigating and building prosecutions against international drug trafficking organizations. From 2003 to 2006, he was the case agent for a multi-agency international organized crime 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 its ancillary consultancy Wolf Global. He is a member of the Florida Bar, the District of Columbia Bar, and the New York Bar.
