Our Office is one of the few if not only practices in the Lake Mary area that deals solely with Criminal Defense. Ryan feels the old saying “jack of all trades master of none” holds true particularly when talking about a criminal practitioner. Unlike other areas of the law practicing criminal defense requires the attorney’s presence in the courtroom almost daily and that the attorney have a close professional relationship with local judges and prosecutors, associations that may not be necessary in other practices of the law. Ryan who grew up in Lake Mary and graduated from Lake Mary High School has seen the town come a long way.
Lake Mary city limits is rather small, only 8 square miles, most people with a Lake Mary address live in unincorporated Seminole County. Lake Mary is comprised mostly of single family homes and neighborhoods; that said, more and more business and company headquarters are calling Lake Mary home, including AAA and Ruth Chris. In 2007 Lake Mary was rated the # 4 best place to live in the United States by Money Magazine. Although Lake Mary is a great place to live and work many individuals find themselves accused of crimes nonetheless. Due to the large presence of families many instances of domestic violence disturbances and allegations are reported. Remember, many times following a family argument resulting in law enforcement being called, officers will feel obligated to make an arrest, despite an act of domestic violence actually occurring or the desire of the alleged victim.
Lake Mary has also seen a rise in bars and restaurants in recent years. Unfortunately with an increase in establishments that serve alcohol there is an increase in alcohol related arrests. Lake Mary residents and nighttime visitors may now find themselves accused of Driving Under the Influence, Disorderly Conduct/Intoxication, Possession of Marijuana, Resisting Arrest with Violence, Resisting Arrest without Violence, Trespassing, Battery. If you have been arrested in Lake Mary contact Ryan a man who knows the area and it’s people probably better than any other lawyer in the area.
