Homewood, Alabama is a suburb of Birmingham and lies just south of the Magic City. Home to almost 24,000 people, Homewood is ideally located to give its residents access to all of the benefits of a much larger city in Birmingham, while still maintaining a small town charm. Samford University, a well-known private institution of higher learning, is located in Homewood, and provides citizens with access to the many cultural events that visit Samford's campus. The Birmingham Zoo is also located nearby and is another of the many advantages that Homewood's residents enjoy.
When you are prosecuted for a DUI, the criminal justice system will do everything in its power to make sure the charges stick. The State District Attorney's job is to convict you, and without a trained lawyer you will be at a disadvantage. A Homewood DUI defense attorney is there to protect your rights and look out for your best interests. The legal process is complex and it is difficult to navigate the system on your own, especially when there is a knowledgeable attorney (the DA) on the other side. Hiring an attorney gives you the best chance to defend yourself.
Jail time is a possibility in any DUI case. The circumstances of every case is different, and there are many situations where jail time is required by Alabama law, even for first time offenders. For multiple DUI offenses the District Attorney is far more likely to seek jail time after a conviction, and if the DA asks for a jail sentence, that sentence is often applied. Hiring an accomplished DUI defense attorney gives you the ability to fully assess your options and protect your rights. Even if you have to take a deal, an experienced and dedicated lawyer may be able to help you avoid a lengthy term injail.
