If your Spring Break takes an unexpected legal turn, who you gonna call? Rest assured, an experienced lawyer is just a click or two away.
No matter if you're facing legal trouble in Florida, South Carolina, Texas, or anywhere else across the country, FindLaw's Lawyer Directory can connect you with some of the top attorneys in your area. Some lawyers even tout their experience with common Spring Break-related legal issues, such as drug- and alcohol-related infractions.
To make things easy for Spring Breakers, here are the cities deemed the nation's hottest Spring Break spots -- and links to some local lawyers if you happen to need one:
1. Panama City Beach, Florida.
Ranked as the No. 1 Spring Break destination in the United States by TravelMag.com (based on Google searches), Panama City Beach is great place to spend vacay on the beach. It's also a bit of a magnet for underage drinking and DUIs.
Luckily, attorneys like those at Perry & Young P.A. specifically focus on getting recovery for those injured by underage drunk driving accidents. And there are many other lawyers in the Panama City area too.
2. South Padre Island, Texas.
U.S. News and World Report ranked South Padre Island as the top destination for Spring Breakers for its beautiful beaches, affordable accommodations and "all-night parties." Maybe that's why so many of its visitors wind up with minor in possession (MIP) charges.
Thankfully, the Franke Law Firm advertises criminal defense for Spring Breakers who party a bit too hard in South Padre -- even for federal or serious criminal charges. Of course, they're just one of many law firms in and around South Padre Island.
3. Key West, Florida.
This tip of the Florida Keys is a treat for many Spring Break revelers, and was ranked No. 1 by Fox News. This hometown to famous alcohol enthusiasts like Ernest Hemingway has its fare share of drunken driving issues.
Good thing there are dozens of DUI defense attorneys serving the Key West area.
4. Daytona Beach, Florida.
A classic Spring Break location by any accounts, this stretch of the Florida coast hosts plenty of warm-weather recreation. Some Spring Breakers might even choose to get blazed -- in violation of Florida's drug laws.
Spring Breakers caught with pot aren't necessarily sunk, however. There are scores of drug crime attorneys in Daytona Beach who offer free consultations.
5. Lake Havasu, Arizona.
In a state not known for its watery getaways, Lake Havasu (home of the relocated London Bridge) ranks No. 3 on TravelMag's top list of Spring Break destinations. Fox News described this spot as a "desert oasis," but it hardly seems like a "dry" town. If you're pinched for public intoxication in Lake Havasu, you might call one of these attorneys for help.
With top lawyers in these Spring Break cities, you can put your (legal) worries at ease.
