Minimizing the Consequences

Picture of Thomas J. Azar, Jr.

A conviction for a criminal offense could likely result in a jail or prison sentence. Some crimes have mandatory minimum sentences in prison. In Alabama, all drug and alcohol convictions carry mandatory driver's license suspension. A criminal conviction for a drug related case can result in complications with your job or the loss of your job, denial of employment from future employers, denial of financial aid for college, denial to college admission, and eviction from public housing. Most Sex crime convictions carry with them lifetime registration with law enforcement, and could also carry a community notification.

Case preparation can provide the key to success in any criminal cases. In many cases defense strategies frequently hinge on the question of search and seizure, probable cause, and chain of custody issues. Tom Azar’s law enforcement experience gives him the edge you need to ensure your rights are protected.
