Birmingham Criminal Defense Lawyer

Serving Birmingham, Greystone, Homewood, Hoover, Inverness, Mountain Brook, Vestavia Hills and the surrounding towns and areas.

I have been helping people solve problems since 1983. I pride myself on providing dependable service with dedicated representation. In 1990, I changed the focus of my practice to emphasize helping people facing family-related problems or criminal charges. I understand the stress and emotions my clients are experiencing when they seek my help, and I provide the personalized, caring service they need during these difficult times.

Building Strong Relationships And Seeking Positive Results

My clients will attest that I live up to my motto: “Helping people solve problems.” Some might describe me as an old-school lawyer, and I’m just fine with that. I believe that getting to know my clients and having strong relationships with them can only help in the pursuit of a positive result. Good relationships foster the open communication that is so essential in the resolution of complex legal matters.

Providing The Outstanding Service You Deserve

I know that not every client can meet during traditional business hours and that some matters require an immediate response regardless of the day or time. I make myself available to meet with clients as their schedules permit. I provide my clients with my personal email address and cellphone number. When issues arise, clients speak directly to me, not a legal assistant or paralegal.
