A strong defense against the toughest charges
Every moment counts when you are under investigation for involvement in a crime. Even if you have not yet been charged, it is imperative that you contact an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as you are considered a suspect. We can help protect your rights and ensure you receive due process. Contacting an attorney sooner rather than later also gives us more time to build your defense and prepare for anything the prosecution may send our way. We work hard to provide the strongest defense possible based on your circumstances.
The state of Alabama does not take traffic violations, driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI) charges lightly. These charges carry serious consequences in Alabama. Even on a first conviction, drivers charged with DUI/DWI may receive up to a one-year jail sentence, with fines ranging from $500 to $2,000. When you are convicted, you lose your license for 90 days and are required to attend DUI school. Alabama increases the penalties with each subsequent conviction.
