Being accused of a crime can be devastating. In addition to the embarrassment of being accused or arrested, defendants face a wrenching uncertainty about their futures and their families' well-being. Even those arrested for a first DUI in Alabama lose their driver's licenses; those accused of more serious crimes may go to jail or prison; face thousands of dollars in fines; and have money or property confiscated by the government.
And unfortunately, even after they serve their time, former convicts find that the penalties don't end. With a criminal record hanging over them, many struggle to find a new job. Many also lose basic rights, like the right to own a gun or vote, and the freedom to live where they please. With so much at stake, it only makes sense to get advice from a legal professional who understands the system and the best defenses you can mount. If you or someone you care about is facing criminal charges in Alabama, contact criminal defense lawyer Steven Eversole for help as soon as possible.
Professional, Aggressive Criminal Defense in Alabama
As a professional criminal defense attorney, Steven Eversole understands that there's more than one side to any story. At the Eversole Law Offices, we help clients in Jefferson, Madison and Shelby Counties and throughout Alabama who are accused of all types of state or federal crimes, from driving under the influence (DUI) to drug or narcotics offenses to very serious or violent crimes. And because we offer free consultations to potential clients, with no further obligation to you, there's no risk in calling to see how we can help.
The Eversole Law Offices maintains a special focus on drunk driving cases, including driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI or DWI), DUI for drivers under 21 and other driving-related alcohol violations. A first DUI in Alabama is not a slap on the wrist; you face a 90-day driver's license suspension; and a year in jail, a fine of $600 to $2,100, or both; and mandatory alcohol classes. With these penalties so high, the Eversole Law Offices won't let our clients plead guilty to drunk driving unless it's truly their best option. If you're considering fighting your Alabama DUI, fill out our online DUI questionnaire and then contact Steven Eversole to discuss how we can defend you.
Steven Eversole Helps Protect Your Rights
At the Eversole Law Offices, we believe in, and strongly enforce, the Constitutional rights of clients accused of crimes. Some arrests are legal and valid, but too many others are tainted by illegal evidence-gathering, violations of defendants' civil rights or just plain bad police work. We comb through all of our cases to look for these mistakes and legal violations, because just one can be enough to get your entire case dismissed, or your charges substantially reduced. If it's appropriate in your case, we can also negotiate on your behalf with prosecutors to reduce your charges or get alternate penalties like work-release or community service. And of course, if your case goes to trial, we will defend you vigorously and fully.
Unfortunately, speed is essential in many criminal cases. Evidence and witnesses can disappear fast, especially in cases of police misconduct. Even before you're formally arrested, things you say to law enforcement could seriously harm your case if you don't have the advice of an attorney. And the sooner we take a case, the sooner we can begin to negotiate with prosecutors and law enforcement to reduce your charges or your penalties. That's why it's important to contact Steven Eversole as soon as you know you'll face criminal charges in Alabama. You can call us toll-free, fill out our confidential online case evaluation form or visit our office in downtown Birmingham, at:
