You don’t have to face the prospect of a criminal conviction alone
If you are facing a misdemeanor or felony in the state of Alabama, you are right be concerned. Depending on the circumstances of your arrest, you may be looking ahead to very serious consequences. The most obvious of these are jail time and expensive fines, but even a misdemeanor can keep you from gainful employment or from renting property for years after you have served your sentence and paid your fines. Don’t trust your future to a court-appointed attorney when it comes to your criminal defense.
Schedule an appointment with a dedicated Alabama criminal defense attorney by calling (256) 705-0200 as soon as possible following your arrest to discuss what options you may have for protecting your rights and your liberty.
Extensive Trial Experience
Although the burden of proof is supposed to be on the prosecution during a criminal trial, juries often find themselves seduced by overzealous prosecutors who take advantage of a defendant’s poor representation to see that severe sentences are handed down from a jury following an unjust conviction. There are countless innocent persons sitting in Alabama jails right now because they failed to have a sufficiently aggressive criminal defense attorney present at their trial. We can unearth violations of constitutional liberties that occurred at the time of an arrest and help demonstrate your innocence before a jury. Sometimes we can have a felony or misdemeanor charge thrown out of court, especially when we can show that your rights have been violated. Even if the evidence against you seems irrefutable, we may be able to have your charges seriously reduced at your arraignment.
Talk To Us First!
One of the most important things you can do following an arrest is to make no statement to law enforcement officials about your alleged crime. Police officers are not your friends no matter what they say to you. They may pretend to want to hear your side of the story, but their only interest is convicting you. You will have an opportunity to share your account of what happened during our consultation in an environment free of judgement or accusation. Remember: even though the odds may seem to be against you, until you are actually convicted of a crime, there are steps you can take to help ensure that you will be found innocent at a trial. We have helped many Alabama citizens fight their charges and protect their futures and their reputations from the consequences of a felony or misdemeanor criminal conviction. Contact us immediately.
