The NBA All Star Weekend is now over, and it appears that the big event was a success for many Orlando businesses, restaurants, and hotels. Lots of stars, fans, and families were in town, and formal and informal parties took place all week long. As is sometimes the case with such festive events, of course, there were a few legal problems, and even a few unfortunate arrests. Law enforcement is always vigilant in Florida, and during high-profile events, such as the all star weekend, we often see increased law enforcement staffing and vigilance, along with the increased necessity of criminal defense.
It's now the beginning of a new week, and if you or anyone you know require the assistance of an Orlando criminal defense attorney, please contact us. Partying is not a crime, but sometimes socializing -- with even the best of intentions -- can lead to unwanted trouble. Effective legal assistance is critical to making the best of a difficult legal situation.
If you are local to Orlando, you know that you will want an lawyer.
