We have helped countless college students at universities throughout the state. We understand the stress and pressure associated with getting arrested for DUI or drugs, or for being charged with underage consumption. We know about the embarrassment that can come with being charged with a sex crime.

And we understand money is often a concern – after all, we were college students once, too. We urge you to remain polite and remain silent. Do not make any admissions to law enforcement. Do not provide any statements.

It will not help your cause. If things have progressed to that point, you are unlikely to help your cause; the officer is simply gathering evidence of your guilt. Please contact our office for a confidential consultation to discuss your rights.

Like charges faced by college students, juvenile charges in Auburn can have a lasting impact, including an inability to obtain scholarships or certain forms of financial aid, denied admission into college, problems joining the military, and issues obtaining employment due to a criminal record.

As Auburn juvenile defense attorneys, we understand the need to protect teenagers who are facing criminal charges and to make sure their rights are protected throughout the process. Too often, parents think such charges will magically disappear in adulthood. Being convicted of a crime as a juvenile can have a lasting impact. They should never be made to go it alone.

Likewise, adults facing charges can suffer serious repercussions, including jail time, fines and court costs, and probation. Too often, adults see probation as a way out. For far too many, it is a trap that keeps them in the criminal justice system far past the time they should have been finished paying for a crime.

It’s not unusual for a defendant familiar with the system to choose to complete a jail sentence rather than to attempt to complete a lengthy period of probation. And typically, you will be forfeiting your rights to contest the underlying criminal charges. So a probation violation – such as missed curfew, employment issues or a failed drug test – can result in your being immediately sentenced with little or no chance to mount a defense.

Whether a juvenile, a college student or an adult, we believe you deserve immediate access to experienced legal assistance. Don’t go it alone.

Call us for a confidential consultation to discuss your rights.

Our office is located at 850 Corporate Parkway, Suite 114 in Birmingham and is easily accessible for Auburn residents. Just take AL-147 North/ US-280 West and turn left onto Meadow Brook Road. From there, turn left onto Corporate Parkway. You will see our office on the right.

Auburn Sex Crimes

Sex crime allegations are extremely personal for they attack you at the very core. They threaten to expose your deepest personal experiences while threatening your reputation, your livelihood, and your future.

There is no question that if you are facing allegations for a sex crime, then you have a lot to be concerned about. For this reason, an Auburn sex crime defense attorney from Alabama Criminal Lawyers, LLC would like to assist you with this highly sensitive matter.

We fully understand what you are going through right now. Sex Crimes are delicate matters that rely on witness testimony and physical evidence. Since there are usually little to no witnesses to the crime in question, the prosecution, the judge and sometimes the jury have to rely on the alleged victim’s “testimony” in order to secure a conviction.

At times like these, your defense attorney needs to be more convincing than ever and they need to make sure that your side of the story is told and it is heard loud and clear.

Aggressive Sex Crime Defense in Auburn

Sex crimes vary in severity from indecent exposure to child molestation. In any case, a conviction may involve jail or prison sentencing and thousands of dollars in fines. What’s worse, an ultimate conviction will have serious negative implications on your personal life and your reputation.

Many sex crimes require mandatory sex offender registration which is a national registry, meaning you will have to register no matter where you live and failure to register when you move can cost you a one-way ticket back to jail.

Our firm is dedicated to protecting the legal rights of those who have been “accused” of a sex crime. We can effectively handle every type of allegation including date rape, prostitution, sexual abuse, solicitation of minors, statutory rape, child pornography, sodomy, sex offender registration violations, failure to register and more.

Regardless of the circumstances that led up to your charges, we are confident that we can tailor a strong and aggressive defense strategy on your behalf!

Our firm is devoted to thorough and meticulous representation and we will treat your case with the greatest attention to detail while searching for ways to get your charges dropped wherever possible.

Auburn, AL DUI

Our discerning and experienced DUI attorneys are well equipped to handle the issues that inevitably arise in a DUI case. We have successfully defended countless clients in Auburn and the surrounding areas of central Alabama.

Being charged with a DUI is a serious matter that is accompanied with consequences like jail time, fines, and a suspension of your driving privileges. After being arrested for a DUI, it is imperative that you contact a knowledgeable Alabama DUI attorney as soon as possible to ensure that your rights are preserved.

In Alabama, it is unlawful for any person who is under the influence of any alcoholic beverage or drug, or under the combined influence of any alcoholic beverage and drug, to drive or control a motor vehicle. It is also an important point to understand is that if your blood alcohol concentration, or BAC, is lower than the legal limit, you can still be prosecuted under Alabama law, which is why the guidance of legal counsel is so important to anyone charged with a DUI.

The state has made it illegal to drive a car while your BAC is .08 percent or higher. Generally, a person’s BAC is affected by the number of alcoholic drinks consumed, the alcoholic concentration of those drinks, the person’s weight, and the time between their first drink and the last drink.

DUI laws and proceedings are complicated and intimidating and with your freedom on the line, you don’t want to go through the process alone.
