As a county just northeast of Birmingham, St. Clair County, Alabama currently boasts almost 65,000 residents and is one of the fastest growing counties in the state. Located at the very southern end of the Appalachian mountain range, St. Clair is one of the most beautiful areas of Alabama. The county seat is located in Ashville, but there is also a branch county seat in St. Clair's largest community, Pell City. St. Clair County was created in 1818, and eventually pieces of the county were separated to create neighboring Cherokee and DeKalb counties.

When you are arrested and booked for a crime, you need the police to hear and understand your side of the story. However, you also need to be careful with what you say to avoid any misstatements that could adversely affect your defense later on at trial. It is best to never speak with law enforcement or the district attorney until you have had a chance to consult with an attorney. A skilled St. Clair County criminal defense lawyer can advise you of your rights and ensure that there are no misunderstandings or mistakes that could cost you your freedom. The state prosecutor's job is to convict you of the crime, and the services of a defense attorney are needed to protect your rights and prevent a conviction. Even if a dismissal is not possible, your lawyer may be able to get the charges reduced with his knowledge of the law and his negotiation skills.
