Our criminal defense practice focuses on federal crimes as well as certain complex areas of state criminal law, including DUI, conspiracy and drug charges. If you’ve been charged with a crime, the government has already decided that you are guilty. Even before you’ve had a chance to plead your case. You do have rights, however, rights that are guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States, and we at the Dodd Law Firm will protect those rights and fiercely defend you against the full might and resources of the government.
An Alabama Attorney Experienced in Criminal Defense
If you have been charged with a felony or misdemeanor crime in the State of Alabama, pick up the phone and contact us immediately. Doing so is your single best option when it comes to being found innocent of your charges and staying out of jail. You have the right to legal representation following an arrest and you should avail yourself of this right as soon as possible if you are serious about avoiding prison time and the other consequences of a conviction, which may include paying expensive fees and fines, performing community service, attending counseling, and being on parole. Alabama law enforcement officials and prosecutors are already hard at work in seeking ways to secure your conviction and you should be equally serious when it comes to your criminal defense. Don’t try to explain your actions to law enforcement officials or answer their questions. You will have the opportunity to explain your side of the story during your initial consultation.

Don’t Take Chances with Your Future!
You may be tempted to allow the court to appoint a public defender on your behalf following an arrest. The problem with public defenders is that they are extremely overworked and will generally seek a plea bargain for their clients rather than taking their case to trial, even when doing so is justified. We have years of experience when it comes to taking our clients’ cases to trial for the sake of demonstrating their innocence and we promise the individual attention your case needs. If you are innocent of the charges facing you, you shouldn’t have to plead guilty to a lesser charge for the sake of your legal representative’s convenience. Trying to defend yourself is not recommended either. You may be convinced of your innocence, but trying to convince a jury of the same – and doing so in full compliance with the rules and regulations surrounding courtroom procedures in criminal trials in Alabama – is a challenge best handled by an experienced criminal defense lawyer. Make an appointment with us today to find out how we can help you protect your rights and your freedom after an arrest.
