The personal information of those who go through the criminal justice system is easily accessible. Information such as mug shots can often harm an individual’s opportunity to find a job, decent housing, or remain involved in the community after their release. The annual Right to Privacy Scholarship will award $1,000 to the candidate who can best discuss whether or not those who have been arrested have a greater right to privacy versus the public’s right to know and view all of the details surrounding their arrest. More specifically, does mug shot publication and general access to the public outweigh any potential violations of invasion of privacy interests of individuals who have been arrested? The deadline to apply for this year’s scholarship is August 31, 2021.

We were a proud sponsor for the Freedom 5k on July 4, 2019. This annual run helps to raise awareness and money to benefit The Substance Awareness Center. We have worked with many individuals facing drug charges and have seen first hand how important it is for those struggling with addiction to have a strong support system. The Substance Awareness Center provides that support by focusing their work on substance abuse prevention, treatment and recovery support programs. We were honored to be a part of this meaningful event.
We are proud to provide educational videos on a variety of topics relating to criminal law. These topics include DUIs, Traffic Violations, Theft, Domestic Violence and Drug Possession. We also offer videos that discuss the law specificities in different counties in Florida, specifically in Broward County and Palm Beach County. These videos are designed to help those in need of a lawyer gain free access to information that may be helpful in finding the right law firm to fight on their behalf. The videos can be found here.
We were proud to sponsor the tickets for a Meetup group attending a live performance of Bolshoi Ballet’s Le Corsaire on October 22, 2017. This ballet was originally performed in Paris in 1859 and has since become a well known piece of art all around the world. We believe that supporting the arts is important and were grateful they could help provide theater-goers with a once-in-a-lifetime experience. More information on the meetup and the performance can be found here.
