Know Your Rights.

How an Alabama Criminal Defense Lawyer Will Help You

If you have been arrested, you need to know your rights. It is very important that you exercise your right to remain silent, and your right to an attorney. Many cases become more difficult when the individual accused answers questions from law enforcement or investigators. The pressure that can be put upon a person in questioning can lead them to make mistakes, get confused, or act in a manner that could damage their defense case.

If you are facing criminal charges, the most critical single factor that will assist you is to immediately contact an Alabama criminal defense attorney.I move forward at once with any possible defense action, including protecting you in questioning by law enforcement, in a state, federal or immigration legal issue. I am known for providing a high quality, aggressive defense in all types of criminal charges, including DUI, vehicular manslaughter, immigration defense, defending drug crimes, federal crimes, theft crimes, murder, manslaughter, white collar crimes and serious traffic offenses.

Who you choose to represent you could not be more important. There is a great variety of skill and success in law firms. Some attorneys make a habit of arranging a plea deal without even considering taking the case to trial and fighting for a full acquittal. As a trial lawyer, I know that an aggressive defense of a case in court could be the best opportunity to avoid penalties. The burden of proof lies with the prosecutor. I know how to develop a compelling case for the defense in a wide variety of criminal charges, and should evaluate your case at once if you are under investigation or have already been arrested in a criminal case.

You can be confident that every possible defense action will be taken for you when I represent you. If you need a defense lawyer that truly knows how to fight for you, contact Martin Miller Poynter immediately.
