Domestic Violence Arrests in Daytona Beach
Daytona Beach is famous, and sometimes infamous, for its yearly events such as Bike Week, Biketoberfest, the Daytona 500 race, and all of the Spring Break festivities. All of these events bring people from around the country to enjoy Daytona Beach and all that it has to offer. With those events comes alcohol, and with alcohol comes trouble with the law.

As a criminal defense attorney in Volusia County, I have had the opportunity to represent a number of people who were arrested in Daytona Beach for Assault, Battery, and Domestic Violence related issues. This is why I decided to open a second office in Daytona Beach, to make commuting easier for my clients. If I am handling a criminal case for a client, life is far too difficult to ask that they commute across the entire county to visit their attorney. I take pride in making myself available for those clients who live in Daytona Beach and need my help.
