ALL FELONIES & ALL MISDEMEANORS
Driving Under the Influence (DUI Defense) – If you have been arrested for drunk driving in Alabama, it is critical to work with a qualified DUI lawyer as soon as possible. The increased insurance rates, license suspension, fines, and other expenses can far exceed a DUI attorney’s fees. If you are stopped for DUI and arrested, the officer can confiscate your drivers license immediately. You will be given an AST-60 form. This doesn’t take the place of your license and it is important to take quick action to avoid having your license suspended. I will fight for you from this early administrative action through the battle to avoid conviction. Contact me immediately for a complete understanding of how to proceed.
Drug Crimes – I represent people facing serious Alabama and federal drug charges and drug-related offenses. These can include simple possession or possession to sell or distribute, drug trafficking, unauthorized possession of a controlled substance such as Xanax, juvenile drug charges, DUI involving drugs, and other charges. Penalties in drug cases can be severe, including having property or vehicles seized in connection to the charges. As an experienced drug lawyer, I will help you fight these ramifications.
Juvenile Crimes Defense – The young have their whole life ahead of them. When the possibility of a bright future is threatened by a possible criminal conviction, it is important to work with a qualified juvenile defense attorney to ensure that they have every possible chance to maintain the rights and opportunities that we are all entitled to. The juvenile system is ultimately designed to help give youth a second chance. I can help you ensure that it does. Call me for help with a variety of juvenile charges including drug possession, sales or manufacturing, terroristic threats, theft, vandalism, and a number of others.
Felony Charges – Felony charges range from non-violent crimes such as bribery, white collar crimes, forgery and embezzlement to violent crimes including involuntary manslaughter, sexual abuse, kidnapping, arson, homicide, and felony DUI. These are very serious charges and require the help of an experienced felony attorney to ensure the best chance at avoiding the serious consequences that can result. Conviction of a felony can carry a lifetime of collateral consequences as well. Call me immediately to discuss your case.
Federal Crimes – If you are under investigation or have already been charged with a federal crime, it is important to get help from a federal criminal attorney right away. Any time that a crime is committed on federal land or federal property, it will be charged as a federal crime. They are meticulously investigated before an arrest is made. That is why you should contact my office right away at the first opportunity. As an experienced federal crimes lawyer, I will begin working right away to fight any charges you may face.
Domestic Violence – Also known as spousal abuse, spousal battery, or domestic dispute, domestic violence charges require an aggressive defense strategy from an experienced domestic violence attorney. Quick action in these cases can play a significant role in custody issues and resolution of a charge that can result in severe penalties and loss of rights. Call my office immediately to speak with an aggressive domestic violence lawyer.
Traffic Violations – It may seem that something as small as a traffic citation doesn’t require the attention of a criminal defense attorney. This is not always the case. Simply paying a fine is the same as pleading guilty. Doing so can add points to your driving record, raise your insurance rates and end up costing you in fines and penalties. As an Alabama traffic lawyer, I can help you to avoid these penalties and the effect they may have on your future and the freedom to drive. Call my office immediately to speak directly to a traffic violations attorney.
These are just a few of the charges that I can help you fight. I am experienced in all felonies and all misdemeanors. The best way to have a thorough understanding of your legal options following an arrest or citation is to call me.
