DUI/DWI Defense Attorney In Mobile

One of the first things to understand about a DUI in Alabama is that there are two sets of consequences. One is related to your ability to drive and your driver's license. The other is related to your personal freedom, insurance expenses and criminal record.

I am criminal defense lawyer James M. Byrd, and I am dedicated to protecting your rights when you have been charged with drunk driving. It is important to act quickly following an arrest. There are time limits involved and if a deadline is missed, the consequence that could follow is the loss of your license. Contact my Mobile office immediately at 251-298-8395, we must not miss any deadline.

Fighting Every DUI Charge To Protect Your Record

Alabama is tough on DUI. A first offense carries the potential for imprisonment of up to one year, a fine from $600 to $2,100, and a driver's license suspension of 90 days and possible installation of an interlock device. A fourth DUI conviction is a felony.

As your DUI defense attorney, I begin attacking the criminal charge by looking at the sufficiency of the complaint. I'll look at the legality of the stop and the field sobriety test. I will look at the sufficiency of all the evidence with challenges in mind. I am involved in about 10-15 DUIs per week, so I know what to look for.
