Christopher L. Rabby, is on Your Side

*Pensacola Beach Summer Season Need to Know/ Warning*

*Perdido Key Beach Summer Season Need to Know/ Warning*

Law enforcement will arrest for underage drinking, not just write a citation
This is a prime arrest season.
Open containers of alcohol are now illegal on the Pensacola Beach Boardwalk 
         and most all parking lots and beach areas, except for the “sandy beach.”
There are no “clothing optional” or nude beaches on Pensacola Beach, National Seashore, Ft. Pickins, Navarre Beach, or Perdido key/ Johnson Beach.

These are traps for the unaware to “come on vacation, leave on probation…”
If you have an issue on the beach, call Chris (850) 437-9410.

We build quality defenses and quality relationships with all our clients.
At Christopher L. Rabby, P.A., we take the time to understand our clients’ needs and build the strongest possible cases for them.  The hallmarks of our firm include:

        Personal attention — In our small firm-environment, we devote the time it takes to listen to you and to understand and respond to your concerns.

Knowledge of the Criminal Justice System in Pensacola  –  Chris has been actively involved in representing people in Pensacola since 1992.  He can explain the court system and how arrest, bond and release relate to the a prosecution.  Sometimes, he can resolve misdemeanor and Pensacola Beach Cases without the person returning to Pensacola.

        Experience in Florida and Federal Court  — Most crimes are prosecuted in state courts, and many lawyers don’t have the knowledge and experience to help a client when the case goes to Federal Court, especially when some criminal charges may remain in Florida State Court and some are prosecuted federally.  Chris Rabby understands how the different systems and sentences work and may interrelate.  Chris Rabby has been trying cases in Florida since 1992 and Federal Court since 1995.  Whatever the jurisdiction, he is prepared to advocate for you effectively.

Serious and Complex cases — At our firm, we handle the most violent crimes and complex cases with the most serious potential outcomes.  We do not judge our clients, and are sensitive to the potential damage to your reputation, family relationships, and the collateral consequences of a criminal arrest.

Representation with Respect — The non-judgmental focus of Attorney Chris Rabby, is representation with respect towards and for the individual client, to insure the court sees the real person and to make certain a client is not as a file, but in and out of Court, as a person.  Due to a high numbers of cases, it is easy for the prosecutor or judge to lose sight of the individual and see the person as the offense for which they are charged (he’s a “domestic battery,” or she’s a “possession with intent”).   Respect means breaking through this barrier and explaining the charges, evidence, and system to each client, not just telling a client what they want to hear.

Collateral Consequences, Issues  and Understanding- There are a great many issues that can come from an arrest or prosecution, including an Injunction, Divorce, and/or Dependency Case(s).  There may also be driver license suspensions, a loss of certain rights, other criminal justice system “traps,” employment/professional ramifications, and personal and family relationship deterioration.  Then, there is always the stress of being involved in litigation.  Chris Rabby has experience in these matters and can assist with them, and even refer a person for services to deal with personal issues, drug and alcohol issues, anger issues and/or mental health concerns.

The Rabby Lawfirm is located in historic downtown Pensacola.  There are three Notary Publics on staff.
