There’s a lot to celebrate here in Tuscaloosa.
Tuscaloosa itself is a great place to live, and a great place to visit. Plenty of activities, plenty of nightlife.
The University of Alabama gives us all reasons to celebrate, whether it’s a big football game at Bryant-Denny Stadium, tailgating on the Quad, a basketball game at Coleman Coliseum, a night out on The Strip, or a band party with friends at a fraternity house.
But sometimes the celebrating leads to something you never intended...an arrest.
A few too many drinks, not enough food on your stomach, an exhausting week of studying, work or both...all of these factors can contribute to a Public Intoxication charge.
Getting handcuffed and stuffed into the back of a patrol car, then spending the next 24 hours in jail is a stressful and traumatic event, one that you definitely want to avoid.
But if you’re reading this, the arrest probably already happened.
So now what?
That’s where I come in.
Text me now to schedule your free consultation. That’s right, there’s no charge to meet with me. I will be glad to explain the court process, and in general terms, how the law applies to the facts you provide.
Many times, the first person to contact me on your behalf is a parent, a spouse or a friend. I am always glad to answer their questions and explain the process until you and I can meet. Sometimes a parent is several states away, so I understand their stress and anxiety from long distance. I have a great deal of experience handling these situations on a regular basis.
After we meet, I can inform you of my fee structure and the cost to have me represent you in court.
If you were arrested during a visit to Tuscaloosa, we can arrange a phone conference to discuss your case. If you decide to hire me, in many instances, I can resolve the case on your behalf without the requirement that you return to Tuscaloosa. This can save you thousands in travel expenses alone, not to mention lost time from work or school. If you do not hire local counsel, you will be required to attend court, most likely on numerous occasions.
Someone that pleads guilty or is found guilty of Public Intoxication by the Court can be fined up to $200 and sentenced up to 30 days in jail. This is not the kind of risk you should be taking by hiring the cheapest lawyer, hiring a lawyer that doesn’t specialize in Criminal Defense, or by attempting to represent yourself.
In other words, Tuscaloosa Municipal Court, Tuscaloosa County District Court, Northport Municipal Court, or one of our other local courts such as Vance, Brookwood, Coaling or Lakeview, all take Public Intoxication cases very seriously.
You should too.
Text me now at 205.799.3800, even if it’s late at night or on the weekend. I will reply as soon as I see your message, because I realize this is an anxious time for you. Let's get started on your case as soon as possible.
