Fort Walton Beach Criminal Defense Attorney
Serving Fort Walton Beach, Crestview, Niceville, Destin and Okaloosa & Santa Rosa County
What Are You Going To Do?
Perhaps you were stopped for DUI in Ft. Walton Beach, Okaloosa County or Santa Rosa County.
Maybe you were arrested for a misdemeanor or felony.
My name is Tim Flaherty, and I’m a Fort Walton Beach criminal & DUI defense attorney.
I’ve successfully helped hundreds of clients over the years – those from Okaloosa and Santa Rosa County – and many from out-of-town.
And they all agreed on one thing – being arrested and locked-up is a miserable experience. And it’s just the beginning of what can be a life-changing event.
You know what an arrest can lead to….heavy fines, possible jail time and a record that will follow you, or your family member, around for years, impacting many different aspects of your future, including all employment prospects.
Here’s how the criminal process works in Florida. After an arrest, and bail is arranged, you have 14 days to figure out what you are going to do. You now have a choice. You can rely on an over-worked Public Defender – or hire a professional defense attorney.
Those are the only two choices you have.
But before you make that choice, why not do this:
Pick up the phone and call me. I know you have questions, and I’d like to answer them. In fact, I would imagine you have a lot of questions. This first call is FREE and I will not pressure you to do anything. I’ll simply answer your questions and ask you a few questions as well.
Then you decide what you want to do. Rely on a Public Defender – or hire a pro.
While you are here, why not do this – look to the right and see if I have any information related to the charge you or your family member is facing. It never hurts to discover a little more about what is going to happen. For those from out of town, or those who have had a family member arrested down here, please see my special section – Arrested in Fort Walton Beach and a Non-Resident.
And when you’re ready to put a professional Ft. Walton Beach DUI and criminal lawyer to work for you, call me at (850) 243-6097. I am available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Cases I Handle
As a Fort Walton criminal defense lawyer, I handle all types of state criminal offense cases, including but not limited to: DUI (drunk driving), domestic violence, assault and battery, drug charges, sex charges, theft, burglary and robbery and BUI (boating under the influence). I can also assist clients with bond hearings and arrest warrants and can offer my services in record sealing and expungements if you wish to clear your criminal record.
No matter the circumstances of the criminal charges you are dealing with, I am confident in my ability to answer your questions and address your concerns. I represent civilian and military clients and am committed to the tireless protection of your constitutional rights, regardless of the severity or nature of your charges. Do not place your future in the hands of a less experienced attorney or an over-worked Public Defender who simply does not have the time or resources to properly defend your case. Call me instead.
