Criminal Law A Fierce Advocate On Your Side

Criminal Defense Lawyer in Birmingham, AL

Protecting Your Rights & Freedom in Alabama

One of the most devastating experiences a person can encounter in the state of Alabama is being charged with a criminal offense. Alabama is known for being especially stringent in the way that crimes are handled in court, and defendants often receive harsher convictions than necessary to teach a lesson to others.

The problem is that in many cases, a person who has been accused of these “dastardly” crimes, from a single incident of marijuana possession to a one-time occurrence of shoplifting, is forced to endure overly severe penalties.

We have even found that supposed offenders were themselves victims of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, or falsely accused of a crime they never committed.

Yet, prosecutors will charge maximum penalties anyways, from absurdly high fines to years of incarceration. There is no time to waste following a criminal charge, so reach out to our Birmingham criminal defense lawyers from The Law Office of Brad J. Latta as soon as possible.

Harsh Penalties for Criminal Charges in Alabama

If you are innocent of committing a crime in the state of Alabama, you may be wondering whether it really is necessary to have a legal defense. It is understandable to think that surely the court will listen to reason and will be convinced of the honesty of your testimony.

Alternatively, if you have been charged with a smaller misdemeanor, you might feel like it is better to just pay a fine and move on, rather than deal with the hassle of going to court.

It is critical to realize that once you have a criminal record, no matter how seemingly insignificant the matter may seem initially, the consequences are long-lasting. Not only will you potentially have to pay expensive fines or even face time in prison, but your ability to find a job, get a mortgage for a house, own a firearm, or even vote could all be affected. Do not take this charge lightly — immediately get legal counsel.
