Many people who need our services live somewhere other than Florida. Our firm routinely handles cases where the person being defended resides in another city, state or country.
In fact, many criminal cases can even be handled without the person being defended even having to appear in court. Even where a court appearance is required, we will do everything we can to keep the number of criminal court appearances to a minimum in order to reduce the amount of disruption into your normal routine.
When returning to the area for criminal court appearances, we recommend the following accommodations:
You can easily find cheaper hotels in many Florida cities, but this list is designed to suggest the ones that are going to be the easiest for you to navigate from. Most are close to the courthouse. Budget extra time for travel to court in Orange (Orlando), Bay (Panama City), Hillsborough/Pinellas (Tampa area), Dade/Broward (Miami, etc.) and Leon (Tallahassee) counties. You do not want to be late for criminal court proceedings. The odds are that you will actually arrive early, and sit around for at least an hour – but you don’t want to be late on that one time when your case is the first one called by the judge.
