Because of Florida's expansive coastline, it's a hotbed for all different types of illegal activity and law enforcement has invested massive resources into combating crime. Florida is infamous for its harsh criminal justice system, especially for those crimes involving the possession, manufacture, distribution or trafficking of illicit drugs. When you are searching for a criminal attorney, it's a wise idea to select someone who is not only a defense attorney, but who also has experience working as a Florida prosecutor.
