DUI and DWI Attorney in Birmingham, Alabama

Successfully Handling Your Case

At Simms & Associates, we understand that being convicted of a DUI can have serious consequences, whether it is a first-time offense, a commercial DUI or a felony DUI. You may lose your freedom to drive, face fines and increased insurance rates, and have difficulty finding employment.
 
When you are facing charges of DUI or DWI, our experienced attorneys can give you the diligent representation you need to achieve a favorable outcome.

General DUI and DWI Offenses

When you come to the lawyers at Simms & Associates for legal advice and representation concerning your DUI arrest, we will take a thorough look at your case and build a strong, reliable defense. We will address the automatic suspension of your license, examine the details of your arrest and discuss any prior convictions.

Commercial DUI or DWI

Because of the increased responsibility involved in operating a commercial vehicle, the standards for driving are much stricter, and the consequences for commercial DUIs are harsh. In Alabama, you can be arrested for a commercial DUI if your blood alcohol level is 0.04 percent or greater. If convicted, your commercial license will be suspended for one year, and you may be considered unemployable as a commercial driver.
 
Our skilled attorneys will take the action needed to preserve your privilege to drive and give you the aggressive representation you need to protect your record and your rights. 

Felony DUI or DWI

If you are convicted of a fourth DUI or DWI within a five-year period, it is classified as a felony DUI. When charged with a felony DUI, you face increased penalties and consequences. As a Class C felony, this type of DUI can result in a minimum of one year and one day and no more than 10 years in prison. Your license will also be suspended for five years, you may face a fine of $4,100 to $10,000 and face required attendance to a court-approved substance program.
 
If you are charged with a felony DUI, we will conduct a detailed investigation of your arrest, including how field sobriety tests were conducted and the justification for the initial traffic stop. We will use our experience and knowledge to successfully handle your case.
