Longwell LawyersDivorce & Family Lawyer in Orlando, Florida
FEELING ACCOMPLISHED: Today Longwell Lawyers successfully handled criminal cases in Orange County and Polk County in the morning. Then we were in Lake County to win two injunction hearings and in Seminole County for a family law trial in the afternoon. Finally, we zipped over to Volusia County for an Administrative hearing that went very well for our client.
1 day, 5 counties, 6 happy clients.
Arguing a Motion this morning at the Marion County Court House and saw that they still have a good old fashioned law library. Computers and the internet have replaced these libraries in large part, including the one we used to have in our office. Still, nothing like a real law library. By the way, motion granted!
Attorney Benjamin Jones talks about a recent bill advanced by the Florida House Criminal Justice Committee, which could have long-term effects on our police force and how they function. Learn more about this below.

In the crazy, fast paced world in which we live, we don't always take the time to appreciate the good things going on in our lives. Instead, we tend to work on solving this problem or that problem, and we don't look back to relish just how many good things we have accomplished. Well, I want to take a moment to recognize that the awesome lawyers and staff that I work with have been really doing some great things lately. Ben Jones got two significant cases dropped just in the ...last two days (and he was sick on one of those days). Carmen Tankersley has been crushing her cases even without the help of a legal assistant. Amy Saunders has been a total professional in keeping us on track. Of course, Tanisha and Crystal have things running smoothly, as usual. These are just a few of the many things that go on all of the time at Longwell Lawyers, that we tend to take for granted. I just wanted to take a moment to savor and appreciate what we do everyday.

Reading about what goes on in the courts through the news can be dull. That's why Attorney Ben Jones aims to change it up with some memes, find out more below 😉
When I switched over from being a prosecutor to a private defense attorney in 1993, it seemed as though the sanctity of an accused's 6th Amendment right to counsel was well intact and well-respected. I could walk up to a jail facility and ask to see a client and I would immediately be accommodated. However, over the years I have noticed that corrections facilities are more brazen about making attorneys wait long periods of time before getting them in to see a client. I've ...even had some facilities insist that attorneys visit only during certain hours or only if pre-scheduled. The problem with such restrictions is that it is precisely when a person has been arrested, in the middle of the night, without warning, that they may be subjected to interrogations/searches/line-ups (and other critical procedures). Or, an accused may be left in a cold room naked for hours even after repeatedly asking to talk to a lawyer until he finally relents and agrees to say whatever he has to say just to get a blanket (like we literally just had happen in one of our cases). So, what do you think? Where is the line drawn between our constitutional 6th Amendment right to counsel and the need for law enforcement/corrections to process and administer inmates and facilities safely?
