Criminal Defense

The Criminal Justice System Is Misnamed

Criminal charges can be life-changing. If you have never been charged with a crime or been in police custody, you may not fully realize how much your life could change. Ask anyone who has been convicted of a crime how it changed their life.

But I'm Innocent — I Won't Go To Jail

Some people believe that because they are innocent, they do not need an attorney. They think the criminal justice system is there to seek the truth and deliver justice.

They Are Very Badly Mistaken

The criminal justice system in Alabama exists to convict people. Prosecutors will glibly say everyone in prison claims they are innocent, while they believe everyone they convict is guilty.

After you have been read your Miranda rights, police and prosecutors all believe you are guilty. No matter the circumstances, no matter your degree of guilt or innocence, you need a criminal defense lawyer by your side every step of the process. And remember the words of the Miranda warning: ask for an attorney and then stop speaking.
