CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER IN BIRMINGHAM
Are You Facing Criminal Charges?
If you have been charged with a crime or are involved in a criminal investigation, it is critical that you enlist a knowledgeable lawyer to protect your rights and freedom. Regardless of whether this is your first charge, it is natural to feel anxious and confused when facing the criminal justice system.
You don’t need to be told that the consequences of a criminal conviction are serious and may include potential jail time, fines, and even the loss of property. What you need is a professional to review your case, inform you of your options, and defend you throughout criminal proceedings. Having someone on your side who knows how to navigate the system and the varying aspects of your case is a critical part of pursuing the outcome that you deserve.
The Necessity of an Expert Legal Guide
At Ingram Law LLC, Birmingham criminal defense lawyer Joe Ingram has significant experience representing people throughout Alabama who are facing a wide range of criminal charges. He can be the one to guide you through the process in state or federal court.
Defending your rights includes educating you about your options and recommending what your next move should be. For example, Joe can advise you on whether or not you should post a cash bond or apply for a property bond. Anytime you do not have to pay a cash bond or a bail bondsman, that leaves you with more money to hire a criminal lawyer to defend you in court.
Also, if you are under 19 years of age, Joe will explore having your case sealed as a Youthful Offender case. This is not an automatic right, but if the court decides to grant Youthful Offender status, your case will be sealed. This will allow you more freedom when looking for a job or higher education opportunities in the future.
Understand Your Rights
There are always two sides to every story in life. You need a criminal defense lawyer to present your side of the situation. Just because you have been arrested and/or charged with a crime does not mean you lose all your constitutional rights. Joe Ingram is an experienced attorney who will form a proactive criminal defense strategy.
It is important to remember that the prosecution has the burden of proving their case beyond a reasonable doubt. This is a very high standard of proof, and an attorney can identify the more vulnerable areas of the prosecution’s case against you. If a court concludes that the police lacked sufficient grounds to support a reasonable suspicion or probable cause, any evidence obtained from that search or seizure likely will be deemed inadmissible at trial. This can greatly diminish the prosecution’s ability to sustain a charge.
No matter what the serious charges against you are, attorney Joe Ingram can help you. Our office based in Birmingham, Alabama, has successfully represented people charged with crimes such as:
