Defending People Against Drug Charges for Over Two Decades

A charge for drug possession or trafficking can be a serious misdemeanor or even felony. For more than 20 years, I have represented individuals facing all types of drug charges, from possession to unlawful distribution, trafficking and manufacturing.

I work diligently toward the best possible solution for each client. If you are facing charges concerning marijuana, crack cocaine or crystal meth, you need an experienced lawyer on your side.

Competent and Understanding Legal Representation

I have handled many types of cases over the years, involving a variety of drug-related charges. I understand the difficulties confronting each client and I offer advice in each step of the process.

Even when it appears the case against you is solid, you still have a chance to work out a plea or get your charges dropped entirely. You have several options at your disposal, and I will employ every tool that I have as an advocate to get the best results possible in your case.

Alternative Options for Disposition

Alabama offers conditional alternative sentencing in some cases. In these cases, my clients have two years to complete a treatment program, after which their cases are dismissed. Individuals entering this program must complete treatment or be subject to a sentence of two years in prison.

I understand your options for alternative sentencing and I can recommend a treatment system for you. Your very freedom is at stake; I work with every client to ensure they receive the best chance for living productively as possible.

Defending Young Adults in Criminal Matters

Some people say youth is wasted on the young. I don’t agree with that. Young people are willing to take chances and make mistakes. They stretch beyond their comfort zone, and they test rules to find the real limits.

Kids Will Be Kids

Kids and teenagers like to spend time with their friends. They are at an age where they are easily influenced by the people around them. Unfortunately, when you get a group of young people together, they do not always make the smartest choices. I defend teenagers who are facing charges for juvenile crimes, including:

  • Drug crimes: I defend juveniles who are facing charges for possession, possession with intent to sell, trafficking or manufacturing illegal or prescription drugs.
  • Drunk driving: If you are under 21, it is illegal to consume any amount of alcohol. If you are pulled over after you have been drinking and driving, the penalties can be severe.
  • Theft: Whether you are caught shoplifting or stealing items with more value, it is important to protect your criminal record.

I work with clients to minimize the charges they are facing. Although I cannot guarantee results for my clients, I work with juveniles and their parents to try to keep them out of jail and juvenile detention facilities.

Vehicular Homicide

Protecting Your Rights in Car Accidents Resulting in Death

Most people rely on their cars as their primary mode of transportation. Although we try to drive safely, accidents happen. Whether it’s running a red light because you were changing the radio, or losing control of your car as you rounded a corner, accidents happen in a split second, and the results can be fatal.

If you are facing charges of vehicular homicide because another person died in the car accident, it is important to find a lawyer who will protect your rights throughout the process. We have over 20 years of experience. I defend clients throughout Huntsville and northern Alabama in vehicular homicide cases.

Collecting Evidence After the Accident

After an accident, everyone will be trying to collect the evidence they need to build their case. The police will be filling out the details in the accident report. And we need to determine the actual cause of the accident.

When I work with clients, I do whatever I can to build the strongest case in their defense. When appropriate, I work with experts to reconstruct the scene of the accident. By carefully investigating every detail of the situation, I seek to determine the actual cause of the accident.

Even if illegal drugs or alcohol were not involved, there can be a number of factors which may lead the prosecutors to think they were. I work closely with my clients to prove the connection between medication or existing health problems and the cause of the accident.
