Getting Arrested on Vacation in Daytona Beach
As a Florida native, I grew up knowing that Daytona Beach was the place to visit to get away for a fun time during Spring Break. In fact, before I became a lawyer in Daytona Beach, my experience with the area was with my friends, on the beach, taking some time away from school.
Now that I have become a lawyer in Daytona Beach, I realize that the Spring Break experience is not always as perfect as it was for me. I have had to represent people who come to Daytona Beach from out of town, or out of state, to enjoy time on vacation, and end up staying in the Volusia County Branch Jail instead of their hotel room. This creates an even more difficult situation having to deal with a criminal case after you go home.
At Thompson Law, P.A., I decided to do three things that make it seamless to represent clients who get arrested while vacationing in Daytona Beach. First, my office is paperless. I have created a way to allow my clients to view their own client files online so that they can keep tabs on the progress of their case and ensure that I am performing top quality work for them on their case. Second, I provide each and every client with my cell phone number. This allows out of town clients to contact me directly instead of having to leave a message with an assistant or a telephone answering service. Clients have the ability to call me directly, and even more importantly, text me. This is often helpful for clients who are out of state or in a different time zone. Third, I took the time and effort to open a fully functioning office in Daytona Beach. I now split time between our DeLand and Daytona Beach offices to offer a convenient location to meet with clients and prepare for court hearings. If you are from out of town, you may only know the Daytona Beach area and I want to make it as easy as possible to find my office. My office is only a few blocks from the courthouse, so we can offer a convenient place to meet.
I hope that your vacation is fun and create great memories for years to come.
