Anchors Smith Grimsley, a law firm located in Fort Walton Beach, FL, are proud to announce that they do not only represent clients within their area, but also those who have visted the beautiful Destin area or live out of town. Part of their legal advice concentrates on helping individuals facing underage drinking or DUI charges. They have also announced that the 2018 Spring Break season is finally over and there were fewer arrests due to underage drinking, a clear improvement from previous years, this despite the season having been described as 'insane'.
Jay Patel, a DUI attorney of the ASG Law Firm, states: "At ASG, we understand how unsettling being arrested can be, but more importantly, not knowing what to do next is far more unsettling. We have represented many people that have found themselves in this predicament. Experience Our Experience."
ASG Legal is committed to improving the community as a whole, which is why, while they welcome the Spring Break festivities, they are working tirelessly to combat the negative consequences. Criminal defense attorney, Tim Shaw, has monitored the latest report from the Walton and Okaloosa County sheriff's offices to identify the top 10 colleges, universities, and high schools with students who were charged with underage drinking in 2018.
