DUI, Drunk Driving

Experienced DUI/Drunk Driving Defense

All too often, people arrested for DUI/drunk driving assume that there is nothing an attorney can do to help. They couldn't be more mistaken.

An effective DUI/DWI defense lawyer can help minimize the negative consequences you face after a drunk driving arrest, no matter how serious the charges.

Representing the Accused for More Than 30 Years

The criminal defense attorneys of Burttram & Henderson have more than 60 years of combined legal experience getting results for people charged with DUI in Birmingham and throughout Alabama. We have the knowledge, skills and experience to help you.

Because we are known and respected by area prosecutors, we may be able to get the charges against you reduced or dismissed entirely. If you are charged, we may persuade the judge to disregard any prior convictions. As effective trial attorneys, we can also take your case to court, where we have a long record of success.

An Arrest is Just the Beginning of the Story

Just because you were arrested does not make you guilty. We make the opposition prove their case. Many times they simple cannot do so.

In all drunk driving cases, we will ask these questions:

  • Was the Breathalyzer machine in proper working order and properly calibrated?
  • Was the officer properly trained and certified in its use?
  • Was there probable cause for stopping the vehicle?

If we can show that the evidence against you is unreliable or was obtained illegally, we may be able to get it thrown out of court.

Serious Consequences

A DUI conviction can mean loss of license, stiff fines and jail time. How will you get to work without your license? You can lose your job and, with a DUI conviction on your record, have difficulty finding a new one. When the consequences are this serious, it makes good sense to consult an experienced, respected criminal defense lawyer who knows how to get results in DUI cases.
