The Florida Panhandle is home to 1.2 million Florida residents who enjoy easy access to the Gulf of Mexico, Alabama, and Georgia. The Florida Panhandle more resembles the Deep South culturally, historically and weather wise. In the 1830s when Florida became a state, residents of the Florida Panhandle voted to join the state of Alabama but were ultimately thwarted after an Alabama Legislature scandal over finances. Major cities include Panama City, Pensacola and the stae capital Tallahassie.
The Florida Panhandle isn’t all southern drawls and southern food though; it also plays host to good selection of knowledgeable lawyers. Florida Panhandle lawyers admit an assorted selection of cases; some typical examples include bankruptcy, personal injury, wrongful termination, restraining order, child support, and DUI/DWI cases.
Recently in the Florida Panhandle, a money manager named Marcus Schrenker was sentenced to four years in federal prison for trying to fake his own death. Schrenker faced financial ruin and a failing marriage when he rented a single engine Piper Malibu and parachuted out of the running plane thinking the autopilot would fly it out into the Gulf of Mexico. He’s been ordered to pay $935,000 in restitution to the company who rented him the aircraft as well as the U.S. Coast Guard for their extensive search.
