The view from Ft. Myers criminal defense attorney Danielle O’Halloran’s front porch as Hurricane Ian pummelled her neighborhood. O’Halloran and her husband thought they would be safe riding out the storm with their 3-year-old daughter, Kennedy, and 7-year-old son, Finnegan, in the family home. But late in the afternoon, when they saw the river rising, they tossed the kids into the car and raced to her husband’s fourth-floor office.

Grateful that her family survived Hurricane Ian, Ft. Myers criminal defense attorney Danielle O’Halloran spent most of Monday in her downtown office, ripping out carpet and looking for a sunny spot to dry her soggy files.
