I do not do PI work, only criminal and traffic. Technicalities? It is called being a smart lawyer and knowing what to do and not a dumb ass lawyer who is unaware of what technicalities to raise (legal argument).

Technicalities, a word I never use. I call it knowing the law.

Clearly guilty, you never know the whole story, just what makes the headlines (sensationalism).

When the sh*t hits the fan, you will call a lawyer to minimize damage, or get you out of trouble.
Smarty,
I agree 100%. I have an Excellent attorney here in Orlando, that is there for me, 24/7 for anything I have a issue with. He is worth his weight in gold, (and he played football @ Vanderbilt, Middle Linebacker, 6'3' 285) so that is alot of GOLD! Same old crap, no one likes lawyers, until they need a one!
Have a great weekend.
Dean

Funny you mentioned the marijuana seed, and getting a drug charge, that sh*t happens. Especially with the coke and heroin users who have a empty bag, cleaned up their life (clean and sober) but forget to clean their car and have an empty drug baggie with a spec of residue then get pulled over, and alllow a search. As they say, sh*t happens, I clean up the sh*t. I am a glorified janitor!

6'3" 285lb, that is one intimidating attorney! Good to be big and smart. I am only 5'10 210 lbs, not as athletic as your guy, far less intimadating. But to some clients I am a life saver, which is true.

Smarty,
Yeah he's intimadating in size, but he's very calculating, and he is always on the offensive, attack mode, even though he played defense in school. And all I know is it took me awhile to find him, and when I ask him, "Kevin, please take care of this"......., Oh, man, it's kinda fun to watch him do his job.

This is to the originator of this post. Please feel free to contact Josh Lee at [email protected] . He would like to speak to you aout representation. He handles mostly DUI cases. This law doesnt come into effect until August. I'm with a few others here thinking there is more to the story than what were hearing. Irregardless, if you need representation, HES YOUR MAN!!!!

The very idea that anyone could be arrested for bui in a houseboat at anchor is assinine. If the houseboat was under way, the usual rules should apply.

However, a houseboat at anchor is a house on the water and should be treated the same as any other house. There is absolutely no difference between between being tied to a slip or bring at anchor. In fact, it is much easier to untie from a slip than it is to retrieve an anchor. I know because I owned a houseboat for 4 fun-filled years.

Total B.S. law and I hope that my nieghbors in Oklahoma can get crazy law repealed. Good luck and may common sense prevail.

NOBODY LIKES A LAWYER TILL THEY NEED ONE!!! Wise words, I don't know what is up your azz mr fountain 4402 but maybe this forum is a little different then what you are used to, lifelong friendships on here cross state lines and go back along ways !
As far as boarding peoples boats with no due cause just to harass someone at anchor looking for a dui bust is com plete bull*hit. We went thru something similar around here a few years ago, the local county sheriffs department decided to start interpreting the law to allow them to enter local bars, walk up to each patron and demand that they submit to breathelizers, if legally drunk they were citing people for public intoxication, and the bar was cited for serving a intoxicated patron. If they refused they were arrested for disorderly conduct or obstruction of justice. The bar owners very quickly were in a big uproar and it ended but it still itimidated people into not going to the bar. I like to have a drink once in a while but rarely frequent bars but I still think it was total bs. Now I could be all high and mighty like mr founttain 4402 and say they are getting what they deserved, after all why should anyone be out having a good time????? Smitty

Wow! That is sobering (pun intended). Apparently that sheriff forgot the 18th Amendment was repealed...in 1933.
