Mobile Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you have been arrested, or charged with a crime, your world may have been turned upside down. A criminal charge can impact your family, your job and your future. What does this mean to you? Everything.

My name is James M. Byrd, and I am a Mobile criminal defense attorney. That means the only kind of law I practice is criminal defense. I don't write wills. I don't handle personal injury. I am not a bankruptcy attorney. I have been working 100 percent on criminal defense law every day of the week since 1979.

My Approach to Criminal Defense

  • I listen to you. The police will have their side of the story. My job is to get your side of the story and make sure the truth is told. I enjoy getting the chance to tell the defendant’s side of the story. For that reason, I have spent more than 30 years practicing criminal defense law.
  • You are the boss. I work for you. I will fight, negotiate or settle as long as you approve it. I'll give you my best advice and speak to you truthfully about your options. When I’m working on your case, it is the only one that matters.

Your First Step

You have been arrested. You will have to go to court. You need a lawyer to protect you from the police, prosecutor, and the potential punishment you face.

Call now and set up the earliest date for you and I to discuss all the facts necessary for me to defend you. The police are preparing their case against you. You cannot afford to give them a head start. I have tried hundreds of cases and I do not like to lose. Let me start fighting for you today.
