How We Fight and Win Complex Criminal Cases
Criminal allegations will be prosecuted very aggressively, so you need to have the most experienced, aggressive criminal defense lawyer in your corner. Federal criminal defense requires very specific defense strategies backed by extensive investigation and trial preparation. Often times when we first investigate your case, our attorneys and investigative team can produce evidence that exonerates you without the need for a trial. If we need to go to trial, there is nobody else you’d rather have in your corner. This is not an area for a general practice criminal attorney. Experience is everything.
State criminal proceedings are serious, but not all attorneys request a preliminary hearing for the defendant. Our expertise allows us to establish a different approach, giving the client a chance to review documents such as arrest reports to understand and correct any inaccurate information during a preliminary hearing. Such changes may actually prevent the case going to trial.
Whatever the outcome, we can guide clients through the process of a preliminary hearing and develop a strategy to move forward.
If you’ve been charged with a federal crime, or you’re being investigated by the FBI, call us today at 334.269.3230 or 800.874.3528 for a free case evaluation.
Have you ever heard the phrase…In one split second your whole life can change? My family can attest to the truthfulness of this statement. In November 2016, my son was arrested and charged with multiple felonies. To give you a little background, I had never had any immediate family member arrested, had never been to a jail, had never dealt with bail or had ever had a need for an attorney. After bailing my son out, the next step was to hire an attorney. I had no idea of whom to call. A friend of mine suggested I call an attorney named Mr. Michael Strickland and gave me his number. It was about 9:30 pm, so I stated I would call first thing in the morning. That same friend called back and said she had sent Mr. Strickland a text and he said to give him a call that night. I called, gave him a little background and he gave us an appointment to meet him. Mr. Strickland talked with my son in confidence, then met with us both. My son was first and foremost, the client. Mr. Strickland made notes, asked questions, got names, and got numbers all at our consultation. Mr. Strickland made me as comfortable as I could be during the most difficult time of my life. At each hearing, he was always there waiting for our arrival. He would call us the day before a hearing and let us know what to expect. His legal skills during the hearings made me glad he was on our side. The wheels of justice really do turn slowly, so over the course of 18 months, the court would go silent. Silence weighed as heavy as a court date on us. During this time, Mr. Strickland met with us when we had questions, jointly and separately. His legal assistant, Debbie, provided me with pep talks, mother to mother, as well as answered many of our questions. After 18 months, the words I had been waiting and praying to hear came…CHARGES DISMISSED. Mr. Strickland delivered the wonderful news to me and said he thought I deserved to give my son the news. Mr. Strickland gave me my son back. In actuality, he gave me back to my son. We are finally whole again. SJM
