Do You Need A Criminal Defense Lawyer?

Are You Facing A Criminal Charge In Mobile?

For the average person, few things in life can be as disorienting as being arrested and charged with a crime. One minute you are driving along the road when suddenly you are stopped by the Mobile police and charged with a DUI. You may be worried about the consequences. Could you lose your license? How much will your insurance increase? What if this isn't your first DUI? How much time could you be sentenced to in jail?

At John L. White, Attorney at Law, our lawyer works hard to resolve your criminal charges and help you put your criminal difficulties behind you and move toward a brighter future. Because of our attorney's more than 30 years of experience, he understands the local prosecutors and judges.

We are comfortable taking a case to trial, but we always are working to minimize your risk and will negotiate with prosecutors when possible to obtain a diversion, probation, reduced charges or potentially a dismissal. Our criminal defense attorney's reputation in this area is well known, and because of his experience he can handle all criminal cases, including:

  • Drug charges
  • DUI
  • Assault
  • Domestic violence
  • Theft/shoplifting
  • Sex crimes

Once Arrested, Never Speak With The Police

After you are arrested and in custody, resist the temptation to attempt to talk your way out of the charges. The police arrested you — they "know" you are guilty. Politely decline their questions and clearly state you want an attorney, and then be finished speaking with them. If you say more, you risk compromising your defense and your case.

Remember the part in the Miranda rights about "Anything you say can be used against you in a court of law?" Take it literally, as in speaking with an attorney and then remaining silent.
