Arnold Law Firm Practices Law in Georgia
Have Criminal Matters in Georgia and Florida?
The moment you are arrested, questions that need to be answered start to arise. What am I being charged with, how long do I have, what do I have to do, where do I go? If that arrest takes place while you have a pending matter in another state, the problems and questions become even harder to figure out. The ability to turn to a professional who is trained and licensed in both jurisdictions will allow you to be informed and get the answers to your difficult questions. Without the right attorney, deadlines and opportunities to settle can be missed.
To get arrested in Georgia while having a pending criminal charge in Florida will cause several problems, just as the opposite is true. Both charges will need to be resolved; however, only an attorney licensed in both Florida and Georgia has the ability and knowledge to handle your case. In this situation it only makes sense to find one attorney to guide you with confidence, instead of relying on two attorneys who only know the law of a single state.
Florida and Georgia are two separate states and have individual laws and procedures. Although both states have similar laws and procedures, they are distinctly different. This is why an attorney must be licensed in each state individually to practice. Experience and knowledge of the laws and procedures of both states takes time and dedication to understand.
Shawn A. Arnold, Esq., Board Certified Criminal Trial Attorney, admitted to the Bars in Florida and Georgia, can handle all your criminal matters in Florida and Georgia. He has the experience, knowledge, and dedication to guide you through the intricate laws dealing with both jurisdictions. Having practiced in both jurisdictions gives Mr. Arnold an understanding of both court systems and how they can work for you.
