Crestview, Florida Criminal Defense Lawyer
Crestview isn’t just Florida’s fastest-growing city, it’s also one of its most welcoming. With an enormous population of military personnel and their families, and just a half hour drive from some of the world’s best beaches, Crestview is home and haven for locals and visitors alike, all year round.
Situated in Okaloosa County, new arrivals and tourists will discover a fun mix of the funky modern with classic southern hospitality. From energized nighttime entertainment to pine forests and serene freshwater fishing holes, Crestview really does have it all – including an alert police department.
Spring break crowds and our long, warm summers give officers in Crestview and Okaloosa County a lot of opportunities to interact with the public, and not always in the way you might like. Be careful if you enjoy a few drinks while you’re out, as DUI enforcement is one of the most common legal issues we help people with, followed by things like leaving the scene of an accident, drug possession charges (pills, marijuana, cocaine, and drug paraphernalia are all issues we see often), and other infractions like underage drinking (minor in possession of alcohol), domestic violence issues, and simple assault or battery charges, often stemming from misunderstandings.
While we want everyone who visits or lives in our area to have a good time, when something goes wrong and the police are involved, you need help. Luckily, highly experienced legal assistance is just a quick phone call away. I’ve been a practicing criminal defense attorney in the City of Crestview for more than a decade, during which time I’ve handled more than 6,000 cases, both felonies and misdemeanors. I know our local court system inside and out in Okaloosa County and next door in Walton County. Wherever you’ve found yourself in trouble in the area, I have the knowledge, experience, and relationships to make a big difference for you.
This is especially true for those passing through Crestview, who may find themselves on the wrong end of a DUI or other matter and not know what to do because they live out of state or in another part of Florida. I receive calls every day asking whether someone should hire a lawyer here, where they’re facing charges, or wait and find someone in their own city or town. The answer is that a local attorney is always your best bet, especially if you’re visiting from Alabama, Georgia, or other parts of the southeast (or the US) and the lawyers you know back home may not be licensed to practice in Florida.
Florida thrives on tourism, and I am committed to doing my part to make sure that when things get a little out of hand, you have the best experience and least risk of serious consequences possible. If you’ve been arrested in Crestview, Okaloosa County, or Walton County, Florida, don’t take any chances. Get steady, experienced legal help right away by calling (850) 423-0738.
