For many years, Mr. Rabideau specialized solely in criminal defense but came to realize that a vast majority of his clients had substance abuse issues and oftentimes would find themselves in criminal court due to drug and/or alcohol abuse. Recognizing that unless the core issue was addressed, many clients would end up back in jail. Therefore, during plea negotiations, Mr. Rabideau would ask for treatment services with the hope of rehabilitation rather than incarceration.
Given his experience with individuals suffering from the disease of addiction, Mr. Rabideau expanded his practice to also specialize in Marchman Act / Substance Abuse Law, with the belief that an individual could be helped before the addiction spiraled out of control and someone ended up in criminal court or worse. Since that time, Mr. Rabideau has handled numerous Marchman Act petitions on behalf of families and friends, seeking a better life for their loved one.

He is an active member of The Florida Bar Association, The Palm Beach County Bar Association, The National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and The Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
