Williamsburg, Florida, nestled just outside of Orlando, is conveniently located near the Orlando-Kissimmee attractions and not too far from ocean views. With fewer than 8,000 residents, it is an affordable location made up primarily of families. Williamsburg’s crime rate is 12 percent lower than the Florida average, which is sadly 40 percent higher than the national average. Even so, Williamsburg is safer than 17.6 percent of cities nationwide.

What does this mean if you’ve been charged with a crime in Williamsburg? It means that local law enforcement may not have the same degree of experience with arrest procedures compared to a community with a higher crime rate. Did the police follow proper procedures? If you were stopped for a potential DUI, was it a legal stop with proper cause? Was the chain of evidence procedure followed?

An experienced Williamsburg criminal defense attorney will ask these and many more questions when conducting a vigorous criminal defense and protection of your rights. At Katz & Phillips, P.A., our lawyers have the experience and resources to provide you with the criminal defense you need to potentially avoid the negative consequences of an arrest and criminal conviction.

Criminal Defense for Misdemeanors and Felonies

If you’ve been charged with a crime, it may be wise not to trust your freedom to a general-practice lawyer who dabbles in criminal defense. At Katz & Phillips, P.A., our Williamsburg criminal defense lawyers focus strictly on criminal defense. We defend those accused of the following types of crimes:

  • Drug crimes, including possession with the intent to sell
  • Juvenile crimes
  • Military crimes
  • Sex offenses including rape, child molestation, child pornography, prostitution, indecent exposure, child abuse and assault
  • Violent crimes, including traffic violations such as hit and run, kidnapping, burglary, assault, battery, robbery, domestic violence, murder, manslaughter and weapons offenses
  • White-collar crimes, such as forgery, fraud, identity theft, RICO-related offenses and Internet crimes

Drunk Driving Defense

One of the more common arrests made in Williamsburg is that made for drunk driving. It is not illegal to drink and drive. It is only illegal to have blood alcohol content of 0.08 percent or higher. If you are one of the many people who have been pulled over and arrested for drunk driving, you owe it to yourself to obtain experienced legal counsel. That’s where Katz & Phillips, P.A. can help.

Our Williamsburg DUI lawyers are former prosecutors, meaning that we know how the “other side” operates. Founding partner David S. Katz is a former DUI and Intoxilyzer Specialist with the Seminole County State Attorney’s office. The Intoxilyzer 8000 is the specific model of breath test instrumentation used in the state of Florida. There may be few in the greater Orlando area, and perhaps none in Williamsburg, who are as well-versed in how the breathalyzer test works and where its potential flaws or weaknesses may be found.
