Fort Walton Beach Felony Traffic Attorney
If you are looking for an attorney to help you with a speeding ticket, an expired tag, or a suspended driver’s license, this page will not be very helpful. However, if you have been charged with a felony traffic crime in Fort Walton Beach or Okaloosa County, or if you are under investigation, keep reading.
I will defend you. Not judge you.
Felony traffic offenses such as Hit and Run, Fleeing and Eluding, DUI with Injury, and DUI Manslaughter are usually committed by people who have never been in trouble before. Good people who never in a million years thought they would need to hire a criminal defense attorney. I want you to know that I understand that you are scared and worried about what’s going to happen. And whether you are a local Fort Walton Beach resident, a military member, or a visitor from out of town, I want to assure you that you’ve come to the right place.
Take steps to protect yourself.
If you are being investigated for a Hit and Run/Leaving the Scene of an Accident, or a DUI with Injury or Death, my #1 piece of advice is do not talk to the police. You have the right to remain silent and you should exercise that right at all times.
My second piece of advice is to pick up the phone and call me at (850) 243-6097. Flaherty Defense Firm can offer a layer of protection by telling the police you are represented by an attorney. Once the police know that you are represented by an attorney, they are not allowed to talk to you, or try to manipulate you into incriminating yourself. This can make a huge difference in the eventual outcome in your case.
