We are Criminal Defense Lawyers at the Delaware Beaches. Each summer, many Americans converge on Delaware’s pristine beaches and beach towns. Many of these towns are well-known around the country. These towns are unique and some are also quite quaint. They vary from the quiet streets of Lewes and Milton to the party towns of Dewey and Bethany. Fenwick is a family town close to Ocean City, while Rehoboth has a beautiful boardwalk and a diverse population.
Some residents reside in these towns year-round but have to adjust to the influx of tourists during the summer season. Many of these individuals are looking to relax and enjoy the warm summer waters of the Atlantic Ocean. There is also a younger crowd looking to unwind and party hard!
With that being said, some summer visitors find themselves in trouble with the beach towns’ finest enforcers of law and order and have to begin the process of searching for Lawyers at the Delaware Beaches. Occasionally the criminal complaints result in cases before the Delaware Justices of the Peace Courts, the Sussex County Court of Common Pleas, or Sussex Superior Court located in Georgetown.
