Criminal Defense

  The Beard & Beard Law Firm is committed to providing aggressive legal representation to individuals and corporate clients facing criminal charges in Alabama and beyond. We've earned a reputation as an effective criminal defense attorney in state and federal courts.

  With a wealth of experience, Beard & Beard is Board Certified in Criminal Law by the Alabama State Bar Association. And has consistently been recognized as a top legal firm and is dedicated to upholding the highest standards of legal ethics. 

  Facing criminal charges is a serious matter that should not be taken lightly. When you're charged with a criminal offense, it's crucial to understand the gravity of the situation. Your choice of a defense lawyer can be one of the most significant decisions you'll ever make. Criminal convictions can have profound and lasting impacts on your life, potentially depriving you of your freedoms and affecting your future in ways you may not have anticipated.

  It's essential to recognize that in every criminal case, you, as the defendant, are pitted against state or federal prosecutors who have extensive resources at their disposal. Their primary objective is to build a case against you and secure a conviction. They are not advocates for your interests, and their role is not to listen to your side of the story or provide assistance. This underscores the importance of having a dedicated and skilled defense lawyer on your side to protect your rights and provide the strong defense you need in the face of criminal charges.
