The criminal justice system can be intimidating enough, but the problem is made worse when you are facing criminal charges somewhere other than your home state. In most cases I can resolve your criminal matters without you ever needing to come back to Florida.
I am R. Lane Lastinger, criminal defense attorney, with more than 17 years of experience, including numerous cases with clients from out of state. I am comfortable and experienced representing out-of-state clients in the Pinellas County criminal courts.
Focused Criminal Defense
If you are coming from out of state and facing criminal charges in Florida, I can help. To better serve my clients at The Law Office of R. Lane Lastinger, P.A., I made a choice to limit my practice. I represent clients:
- Only for criminal defense matters: Since all I do is criminal law, I have a firm grasp of the changing statutes and case law. This helps me provide the most focused representation possible.
- Only in Pinellas County, Florida: I generally don’t take clients who are being tried outside of Pinellas County. This has been a real benefit to my clients who have come to me for out-of-state representation. I know how the criminal justice system works here, and I am extremely comfortable representing clients before any of our local courts because these are the courts I work in every day as a St. Petersburg criminal defense attorney.
This focus on Pinellas County criminal law cases helps me stay on top of my cases and get more reliable results for my clients.
