Dedicated & Aggressive Defense

In the state of Alabama, criminal offenses are classified as felonies or misdemeanors. Felonies like theft and murder, of course, are more serious crimes with the likelihood of jail time and exorbitant fines. Convicted felons are faced with a rash of other consequences as well, such as mandatory community service, counseling, and surprise drug tests. Furthermore, a felony conviction can follow a person for the rest of her or his life, prohibiting her or him from certain employment and a number of other privileges. In other words, if you’ve been convicted of a felony, your overall quality of life is on the line. It’s absolutely imperative you contact Warren Freeman Attorney at Law immediately.
