The city of Belle Isle, Florida, has a total area of just 5.1 square miles and more than 50 percent of that is water. Belle Isle is close to the airport, just five miles from Orlando and is home to Lake Conway. Until 2009 Belle Isle did not have its own law enforcement, but relied upon the Orlando Police or Orange County law enforcement. It’s a safe area, without much crime. That does not always translate into better law enforcement however.

If you are one of the residents of Belle Isle who has been charged with a crime, do you feel confident that the local law enforcement did not trample on your legal rights? Are you concerned that maybe not everything was done ‘by the book’? At Katz & Phillips, P.A., our Belle Isle criminal defense attorneys are former prosecutors and as such are not only qualified and capable of mounting a strong criminal defense, they are also well aware of the tactics often used by the prosecution and by law enforcement.

From shoplifting or domestic violence to embezzlement or armed robbery, our law firm has successfully represented individuals charged with a laundry list of felonies and misdemeanors.
