- Personal Injury – It is bad enough when you or a family member are injured because of the negligence or wrongful conduct of another; you should not also have to bear the burden of medical expenses, lost income, or a loss in your quality of life, while the person to blame for your injuries goes free without being held responsible for their actions. We fight for justice and see to it that you get the compensation you need and deserve, and hold those responsible accountable to you. Our personal injury lawyers handle car and truck accidents, slip and fall injuries on dangerous property, injuries caused by product defects, and more.
- Criminal Defense – When you are arrested and thrown into the criminal system, it seems like everyone knows what’s going on except you. Jerome Carter is a former Mobile County Assistant District Attorney and experienced criminal defense attorney who knows what’s going on. Our attorneys are at your side every step of the way making sure you understand what is happening and providing you with the advice you need to make the best decisions regarding your defense. We provide strong, effective representation to get you the best outcome possible in any criminal misdemeanor or felony case in Alabama state or federal court, including juvenile offenses.
- Family Law – Our attorneys provide caring, compassionate advice and representation in a wide range of family law matters, including divorce, adoption, paternity, and dependency hearings. Practically nothing is more important than your family; we work to make sure your rights are protected and that your voice is heard in any family law proceeding. The decisions made in a divorce, child custody dispute or other family law action can have effects that last for years. We are there for you from the outset to get things right from the start.
- Wills, Property & Probate – Wills must be carefully drafted to make sure they are in compliance with legal requirements and that they do what you want them to, so that they will be given their full force and effect when the time comes. Our estate attorneys engage in expert will drafting and also assist in probate administration covering a wide range of matters, including will contests, guardianships and conservatorships.
