Criminal Defense / DUI

When you have been accused of committing a crime, you need a strong advocate on your side. The consequences can affect the rest of your life. A guilty plea can impact your ability to find employment or to obtain credit, even if you avoid incarceration. We will aggressively defend your rights, and make sure you understand your options along the way.

Rutledge & Yaghmai represents clients effectively in all stages of the criminal case, from investigation to trial. Because each client is unique, we take the time to investigate your case to determine the best possible outcome.  Criminal charges do not necessarily result in “guilty” or “not guilty” findings – there is a range of possible outcomes.

If you face an allegation of drunk driving in Alabama, you are probably concerned about losing your license, going to jail, and being branded a criminal.  You will probably have some sleepless nights worrying about how this charge will affect your family and your future.  It is easy to get overwhelmed by the complexity of DUI laws and be intimidated by the prospect of going to court.  You have every right to be concerned, because you face a charge that can result in jail time now, and a record that can haunt you for years to come. 

At Rutledge & Yaghmai, we understand that your life is turned up side down when you have been accused of a crime.  In many instances, you have very little time to make decisions that will impact your future.  Our clients frequently remark that they feel comfortable coming into our office and discussing the details with our attorneys.  You will be treated with courtesy and respect here.
