Destin Misdemeanor Defense Attorney

Serving Clients Throughout The Florida Panhandle

Member of The National Association Of Criminal Defense Lawyers

Many people make the mistake of thinking that a misdemeanor offense in most communities in Florida is a minor charge and may only result in a small fine and a slap on the wrist. The truth is, a conviction for a misdemeanor can result in up to a year in jail, thousands of dollars in fines, hours of community service and a permanent criminal record. If you have been charged in any municipality in the Florida Panhandle region, prosecutors take their jobs seriously. Get serious legal representation.

Parents — Has Your College Student Been Arrested During Spring Break?

Communities along the North Florida Gulf Coast and the Panhandle are among the leading destinations for college students on Spring Break. Many arrive for a week and decide to stay for a lifetime. Spring Break parties are notorious for the presence of alcohol, marijuana and other illegal drugs, and sexual behavior. Misdemeanor charges for possession of alcohol by minors, or underage drinking, assault, drug possession, theft, disorderly conduct and sexual assault are common.

If your minor-aged student is facing misdemeanor charges in a community in the Florida Panhandle region, make sure you hire a local attorney who understands the criminal justice process and has a record of successful results with local-area prosecutors. We have based our success on integrity, honesty and fairness. Prosecutors throughout the region know who we are and take our efforts seriously when trying to protect a young person's future from a criminal conviction.
