Call now for a free consultation
We are continually on the move from one court to the next. We represent criminal defense clients throughout Alabama including Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, Columbiana and nearby cities. Contact us for a free consultation on your criminal defense needs.
We are committed to treating each case as if it were our only one, recognizing that it usually is the only one for the person who is charged. We have a reputation among our clients and the court's judges for being accessible, hard working and determined to get good results for all those we defend.
Aggressive Criminal Defense in Federal, State, or Local Alabama Courts
Many other attorneys who do criminal defense also engage in other practice areas. Other criminal defense lawyers may not be as experienced as we are and may try to avoid taking cases all the way to trial. We have a combined 70 years experience in defending persons charged with criminal offenses. We don't hesitate to take cases to trial - regardless of the level of the offense - ordinance violations, misdemeanors, or felonies. We vigorously defend persons facing accusations of drug crimes, theft & property crimes, DUI & traffic offenses, violent crimes, federal crimes, computer crimes, domestic violence, and probation violations.
We represent the accused in municipal, county, state and federal courts. We are often effective at getting cases dismissed when government prosecutors fail to produce enough evidence to prove the crime.
If it is in our client's best interests to resolve the matter in a plea bargain (and move on with their lives in a positive manner), we will use our creativity and experience to try to get you the best deal possible. For example, a client may be required to perform community service, attend AA or other substance abuse treatment programs, or pay victims back for their losses (restitution). Through such arrangements, many are able to stay out of jail, put their criminal charges behind them, and "start over" as soon as possible.
