Florida is one of the world's greatest tourist draws, attracting some 89.3 million visitors in 2012. Roughly 600,000 flock to Daytona Beach just for Bike Week.
Sometimes though, vacations wind up being less than idyllic. Many Florida tourists are arrested. This can be an especially frightening prospect for those who are non-citizens.
As Daytona Beach criminal defense lawyers, we know it is important for these individuals to seek experienced legal counsel. Not having the benefit of living nearby or even familiarity with the legal system can put defendants at a disadvantage. Florida has some of the country's strictest penal laws, and an arrest can quickly turn a trip into a nightmare, especially if the case is handled poorly from the outset. A good attorney can help guide you through the process - whether you're facing a misdemeanor or felony charge.
