As a criminal defense lawyer, I represent individuals charged with crimes in Gulf Shores Municipal Court, Orange Beach Municipal Court, Foley Municipal Court, Baldwin County District Court, Baldwin County Circuit Court, Mobile County District Court, Mobile County Circuit Court and other state courts.
I have defended clients in a range of charges from traffic tickets to serious felonies. The most common charges I see in municipal court are traffic tickets, driving under the influence (DUI), marijuana possession and minor in possession of alcohol. In Alabama, possession of a controlled substance is a felony. Felonies, including possession of a controlled substance, must be prosecuted in state court usually starting in district court.
