Bay Hill, Florida, at just about 2.5 square miles, is home to slightly less than 5,000 people. Bay Hill is also home to Arnold Palmer’s Bay Hill Golf Club and is near Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course and the Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort. In addition to having near-perfect weather, Bay Hill has a median household income of $99,894.

It turns out that this also translates to a low crime rate. The estimated Bay Hill crime index is 67 percent lower than the Florida average. And yet, Bay Hill residents who are charged with crimes have many of the same needs as residents from an area with high poverty and low incomes. Those needs are:

  • Avoid jail
  • Avoid conviction
  • Minimize personal and relationship damage

At Katz & Phillips, P.A., our Bay Hill criminal defense attorneys understand these needs, and work vigorously to help clients avoid jail time, avoid a conviction and minimize the personal and relationship damage which can occur. Several of our law firm’s attorneys are former prosecutors, wise in the strategies and tactics of the prosecution. This knowledge can be a strategic advantage in the courtroom or during negotiations. It can pay to have experience on your side.

White Collar Crimes and Defense of Other Felony Charges

Some criminal charges, such as those for white collar crimes, involve a more lengthy investigation period. Perhaps there is a paper trail to follow, witnesses to interview and computer data to be mined. Felony charges can take more effort on the part of the prosecution, making it even more necessary to obtain skilled and experienced defense counsel. At our law firm we have experience with the following white collar crimes and other felonies:

  • Abduction / kidnapping
  • Anti-trust violations
  • Credit card fraud
  • Drug trafficking
  • Felony sexual assault
  • Forgery
  • Fraud
  • Hate crimes
  • Identity theft
  • Insurance fraud
  • Internet crimes
  • Mail fraud
  • RICO
  • Tax fraud

DUI Defense

Drunk driving charges are just as likely to be filed following a benefit golf scramble event as they are after a rock concert or football game. A DUI charge is more than embarrassing; it can threaten your legal right to drive to work. In some instances there are professional licenses which can be withdrawn if there is a DUI conviction. At our law firm our criminal defense attorneys have deep experience with drunk driving defense. Our capabilities include, but are not limited to:

  • First steps for a DUI defense
  • Legal effects of blood alcohol content
  • Defense against blood tests
  • Breath tests / breathalyzer testing
  • Field sobriety tests and DUI
  • How to challenge DUI evidence
  • Legality of DUI checkpoints
  • Drug-related DUI defense
  • Penalties for a DUI
  • Underage DUI charges
  • Out-of-state DUI
  • Drunk driving accidents
  • Felony drunk driving
